We just returned from the perfect 3-day ski weekend. We debated before heading out to Santa Fe where to stay...perhaps The Inn of the Anasazi (Rosewood) or La Posada. But we stumbled upon the Inn on the Alameda through a recommendation from a friend. The clerk I telephoned chatted with me for twenty minutes about the rooms, services, specials, and local attractions and directions. Right now, as it's the Inn's 21st anniversary, your third night is just $21. We were able to get a deluxe room with a fireplace and balcony for under $200 a night, and the third night at just $21 (don't know how long this special lasts, though.)
Very clean, nice linens, big comfy robes, and quiet. It felt very private. The complimentary parking was nice - the complimentary breakfast in the morning was WAY above expectations. I gorged on croissants with sweet cream butter and Quiche Lorraine. Coffee and the NY Times were waiting for me. We never made it for the wine and cheese happy hour (for guests, from 4-5 pm) but we did grab a glass at the little bar (they also brought a bottle to our room for the price of the bottle plus just $4!) and the bartender was kind enough to put together some cheese and crackers and breads for us to nibble on after a day on the slopes, even though it was almost 6 pm.
They made great restaurant recommendations and always have a map and marker handy to guide your way. We were just SO PLEASED with everything because we'd really debated on staying at the Rosewood property at more than double the cost.
The hot tub was fun and we think when we go back we'll try one of the little casita suites. Too cute, great people, fun town.
Oh - we had dinner at Baleen at the Inn at Loretto (v. average for a chef's tasting menu with wine pairing at $120 a head) and then Cafe Guadlupe (cheap and yummy - authentic NM dishes). We watched the Super Bowl and snacked at Rio Chama and liked the bar very much. Drink the Rio Chama local ale - slightly dark and delicious!!
