I enjoyed an overnight here and liked the room. It is not newly renovated as far as I could tell so it you were looking for a newer, luxury feel, this is not the place. However, after staying at another property in Santa Fe, I suspect most places have the historic thing going on. I liked it plenty. Sure, the bathroom and fixtures are older but so what? I think there are 2 or 3 super-luxurious properties in Santa Fe and their prices are well above places like this. That said, I do think this place was over-priced for what it was but, it seems that most of the Santa Fe lodging s are over-priced.
I would agree again with other reviewers that the service here was a bit "off." When I got there at 3:30, the front desk staff said that they "had no idea" if any rooms would be available before the 4:00 check-in time. You have no idea what the landscape will look like 30 minutes from now? Come on. It kind-of gave the impression of a place that isn't too interested in their customers.
So, in review:
Room? Good. Check-in? Not so good. Price? Eh. Location? Great. Would I stay here again? Only if I got a super deal (ie: less than $200). I was treated better at the other place where I stayed and stayed for much less. The courtyard was really attractive but didn't eclipse the other issues.
