“The Best Hotel!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Wow! We were so impressed by our stay. We arrived early, before check in, but Chris on reception was really welcoming and our room was ready. The room was lovely and full of character. It was a really comfortable place to be. Indeed the whole hotel was comfortable and relaxing to enjoy. We loved the decor! Throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.

We were impressed to be offered a courtesy bus around Santa Fe but enjoyed out walk in and around the centre of town.

We had breakfast in the teepee and highly recommend the teepee dining experience to others.

We loved Santa Fe and we loved our stay here. Thank you!

We reserved thru Hotels.com. Reservations were all in place. When we saw our room we were disappointed. It was very small, bathroom compact, balcony had one chair on a balcony that was covered by a tree, no view. My husband went down to change rooms, he was told that was the kind of room they gave hotels.com. For a 25.00 extra we were given a new room. The bath was nicer, you really could not sit on the balcony, more like a large window that overlooked the roof, no view. It is great for walking distance to downtown, I feel it is like all hotels in tourist areas, money plus, there is a 19.00 exrtra resort fee, wither you use the pool or not.

Room Tip: Be very specific on what you expect.

Apologies for the inaccurate response form our staff. The initial room you reserved was for a traditional room booked through hotels.com not because of hotels.com!!

Nonetheless, I am sorry to learnt hat you did not enjoy your stay as in previous visits. Please call us direct next time and we will make sure we reserve a room that suits your needs! Please do give us another opportunity to take care of you?!

Just enjoyed a wonderful time in Santa Fe at a lovely hotel. This was a birthday weekend. Got the room at a great price. It was decorated in a Santa Fe style. Bed and bedding was very comfortable. Shower was excellent with plenty of fresh towels. Carpet, tile, decorations were all first-class. Customer service was excellent and location was walking distance to everything on the plaza. The only thing the room did not have was a microwave and refrigerator. These are handy for midnight warm ups of restaurant leftovers. Otherwise everything was perfect. Will definitely visit again.

This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel and the experience is consistently great ! We meet friends here and we always have a good time. First this hotel is reasonable, especially during the high season in Santa Fe which gets extremely pricey. Both couples had junior suites for $189.00 which is an excellent rate during the summer. We couldn't find a room anywhere that was under $200.+ dollars and most were in the $300.00 range. We are picky and will not stay at a substandard hotel simply because of the $$$$ but it is nice to be able to get a quality room without out breaking the piggy bank! The hotel itself is lovely with wonderful public rooms,and a great area for morning breakfast and drinks in the afternoon. We had dinner one evening in the Amaya Restaurant and it was also a good experience. The staff is exceptional and are very friendly and willing to help. WE have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and can tell you that this hotel is worth staying at. We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask to upgrade to a Junior Suite…if they have it , they will do it for you!

What a wonderful way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. My husband chose Hotel Santa Fe the Hacienda and Spa to surprise me. The facility is beautiful. The hotel's staff is unlike any hotel I have visited. All of the staff greeted us with warm smiles and were very attentive to our needs. The Amaya restaurant serves wonderful meals. The restaurant staff, hostess and servers, made us feel like they were happy we chose Amaya. Our room was lovely, comfortable and kept very clean by housekeeping. The hotel also offers many amenities to numerous to mention. The Hotel Santa Fe the Hacienda and Spa made my first visit to Santa Fe amazing!

I'm not sure how exactly to rate the Hacienda as it's somewhere between a boutique hotel and a 4 star hotel, and also a hotel within the Hotel Santa Fe. The big selling point is service - these rooms come with a private butler. All the staff here is friendly and personable though. My room is pleasantly decorated in a southwestern antique style and the furniture is very comfortable. My only niggle with the room is that the bed frame squeaks horribly whenever you move. The room also has a beautiful kiva fireplace, wonderful shower, safe, bathrobes, coffee maker, minibar, desk, couch, and king sized bed. The property has a good restaurant, spa, pool, and exercise facility. People staying in this part of the property get a continental breakfast and evening cocktail hour, neither of which I tried, but it was nice to have options. It's about a 10 minute walk to the plaza, but the hotel also has a free shuttle on demand, which is a nice touch.

Hotel Santa Fe accommodates! From arrival, the premises are relaxing through a garden estate entry in a downtown Santa Fe setting! Relaxing sounds, gracious staff, excellent food and drinks, and hospitality greet guests. The spa provided a fantastic massage. The staff was helpful and courteous. Two young people, Beth and Lawrence, gave help and outstanding service on repeated occasions. The location, the experience, the amenities, and the staff make this truly a welcome to Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Ask for one!

Green Features: Hotel Santa Fe engages in environmental-friendliness . Recycling and conservation are practiced in towel and linen reuse. The plants appeared to be native. The hotel had the overall theme of comfort and care to the guests, staff, and environment!
