“A wonderful experience!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We have stayed at Hotel Santa Fe before and it is consistently a great experience. The staff is friendly and helpful, the bed was super comfortable, our room was immaculate. The bar has great burgers and Amaya has wonderful food at very reasonable prices. We loved the breakfasts too. We had an odd problem - there was an alarm clock on in the next room which was unoccupied and we could hear it through the wall. We called the front desk and it was fixed within minutes. I have recommended Hotel Santa Fe to friends and they have thanked me. We will definitely come back every time we are in Santa Fe.

Our knitting group decided to have a retreat at the Hotel Santa Fe. What a wonderful place to hang out and knit!!! The staff was so wonderful! Allowing us to sit in the lounge and knit the day away. The food was amazing! The shuttle took us happily to yarn shops in the plaza area. We will be booking our retreat for next year!

Hotel Santa Fe is a lovely and unique hotel reflecting the historic town of Santa Fe in combination with the Native American influences. It is co-owned by the Picuris Indians and reflects a quiet and intimate feel in a luxurious setting. The hotel is very comfortable with a great roaring fire in the bar area (with great Margaritas) and a very good bar and dinner menu. It is located near the historic plaza and the new Railyard District.

Room Tip: The hacienda is great

My husband and I visit Santa Fe for several days prior to the holidays each year. We love the beautiful southwestern Christmas decorations, and have found this to be an enchanting time to be in this special city. We have our favorite hotels, but had never tried this one. We stayed in a fireplace suite, and would highly recommend it. It suited our needs just perfectly. We always enjoy spending a couple hours reading by the fireplace, which we did together on a leather couch. The bathroom had a walk-in shower, our favorite. We especially loved the wine each evening, and the breakfasts each morning. You are not served a lot of food, but for us it was an ample amount considering we always like trying the fabulous restaurants around town. Lubo and Javier were excellent butlers, very personable and helpful at all times. The Hacienda is separate from the rest of the hotel, but only a few steps away from the workout room and lobby. This is a delightful place, and will be be guests again!!

My daughter and I recently visited Santa Fe to attend the wedding of a very dear family friend. Many of the guests at the wedding were attending from out of the area and stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe. We personally were extremely pleased with the service, accommodations, courteous and friendly staff, and the wonderful spa treatments we received during our stay. Our room with its fireplace and super comfortable king-sized bed was incredibly cozy and welcoming! We would definitely recommend this hotel and spa to our friends and family who might be planning a visit to Santa Fe. The Continental Breakfast served each morning was just right to get us going in the morning, but not too heavy to keep us from being able to enjoy a wonderful lunch and dinner at the great restaurants that Santa Fe has to offer.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in January as part of a second honeymoon trip. We stayed in a fireplace king room in the Hacienda which was small but very nice. The butler was very attentive and the amenities were nice. It was low season so the hotel and spa were fairly quiet and overall the service was great. The reception staff was incredibly friendly, recognized us and called us by name, always offering to help, giving us bottled water, etc. The free shuttle was a great way to get downtown to the museums quickly--especiallyon a cold day when we didn't really want to walk or hassle with parking...but the hotel is really a very nice 10 minute walk from almost all the shops, restaurants, cathedrals, chapels and other points of interest in the downtown area. We made use of the spa and the masssages and the body scrub were great. We used the hot tub one night and it was a little weird since the building was empty and the rooftop was very dark (we couldn't find a light switch and neither could our butler who we called on for help). The tromp l'oeil painting of the man in the staircase in the robe was kind of creepy at night!

We did go to one of the wine and cheese receptions in the lounge and it was good but there weren't enough glasses and there was nobody staffing it when we were there...so we drank wine out of juice glasses I found in the servery and called our butler who promptly came up and fixed the situation.

The complimentary breakfast in the lounge was sufficient with fruit, yogurt, pastries, croissants, breads, cereals, and hard boiled eggs. We did have one unpleasant experience--on our last morning one of the other guests brought their large dog to breakfast with them. The dog was barking and laid down on the floor in front of the coffee and blocking the way to the food bar. We are not dog people and didn't know that dogs were allowed on the property, let alone in the 3rd floor breakfast room. I mentioned it to the reception staff and they seemed surprised.

Overall the service was OK considering it was low season and they probably had lowered staff levels. The front desk staff and our butler were great!!! The rooms are nice, the location is fantastic and the free shuttle is a nice feature. Take the time to look at the museum quality native american art collection too! I wish we'd been able to do a walking tour of Santa Fe with the guide but we didn't know the schedule in advance so we missed this opportunity.

With many apologies for the dog issue which should not have been allowed in the area during food service unless an assistance dog!! (Although we are a dog friendly enterprise.)

We have visited Santa Fe dozens of times. This is the first time here and we are so happy we tried it out. It gave us a different vantage point for this wonderful city. Lubo the bell boy was so friendly and helpful and made us feel appreciated as a guest. Grounds were unusual and creative. Rooms were designed in a cozy native way. Kiva gas fireplace was classy. Halls had art displayed nicely. Free Sunday editions of Santa Fe and NY Times papers was top notch. A great and free breakfast and close parking topped it all off. We will return and will recommend to others.
