The Hotel Chimayo is located very close to the central Plaza of Sanat Fe, so makes a great base for sightseeing. It is built around a central courtyard and decorated in New Mexico Hispanic style. The restaurant specialises in New Mexico cuisine (with an emphasis on chilis), and has regional dishes even at breakfast. The bar, however, is a homage to the lowrider automobile, and has live entertainment some evenings. If you, like us, are not fans of the chili, there are other good restaurants close by, and the hotel was helpful in recommending and booking them.
Our room, at second floor level, was comfortable, though the bathroom was small - built for Gwyneth Paltrow rather than Danny De Vito. The WiFi system was also a little on the rustic side. However, we are very happy to live with these things for a place with great location and a real, focused, character.
