Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2011

The room was very cozy, great fireplace. The innkeeper was gracious, helpful--a wonderful hostess! The only downside was Friday night--music coming form 2 different bars that went on until early morning, making it difficult to sleep.
The location is great--walking distance to the square and to the Railyard.

We have a wonderful time. The room was very warm, cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub and a delicious breakfast. We will be staying here again.

Wonderful small Inn. DeeAnn and her staff were so warm and friendly, we felt totally relaxed in their presence. The rooms are charming, decorated with good art, and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The location is excellent -- a 3 block walk to the Plaza, The breakfasts were delicious and happy hour from 5-6pm with complementary wine and hors d'oeuvres at the adjoining "Vanessie" restaurant was terrific. Great piano player as well ! We would definitely recommend the Water Street Inn.

The rooms are sooooo Santa Fe. Ours, #5, was clean, comfortable and roomy. It was our first time to stay here. We come to Santa Fe every year in December and have stayed at a different place every year, but we have to say that we would come back to Water Street Inn B&B again. The staff is absolutely the best and made us feel so welcome and a part of the activities. The food was delicious, happy hour was fun and because of the small venue, it was a easy to get to know the other guests staying at the Inn. Since we were there Christmas Day, Dee Ann, the Manager, treated us to a wonderful homemade Christmas dinner that was the most delicious meal that we had during our visit to Santa Fe this year. The Inn had all the amenities that we like; walking distance to the Plaza, hot tub, clean rooms, reasonable rates and a great staff.

I travel to this area often on business. For the past few trips, I have stayed at the Water Street Inn. The rooms are very personal and have the added benefit of having a fireplace in the rooms. Everything is clean and the service is outstanding. Another great benefit is the fact that Vanessie is in the same parking lot. They have great food and great entertainment. I will be back.

I visit Santa Fe regularly and decided to try a new place to stay. Water Street Inn was first class from the moment we arrived. It has one of the best locations in Santa Fe for staying near the Plaza. DeAnn and her staff had our rooms ready when we arrived. She arranged to have our fireplace Kivas lit and the rooms were large and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful in arranging dinner reservations and provided a very nice breakfast in our room one morning and in their restaurant 3 mornings. The property is well kept and the room were very nicely decorated. The restaurant at Water Street "Vanessie's" was outstanding and what an added treat it was. When we arrived for happy hour they had live entertainment. We stayed for dinner and had some of the best food that I had in Santa Fe. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Santa Fe.

Our extended family recently enjoyed a pre-Thanksgiving get-away at the Water Street Inn. The hostess and staff were a highlight - warm, gracious, helpful, extending themselves to the guests, sharing their Santa Fe insights ... and always smiling. Our rooms ("Atalaya" and "Jemez"), appealingly decorated in the southwestern style, were comfortable, and offered superb bedding. The location of the Water Street Inn is a real plus, conveniently located within a short walking distance of shopping opportunities, several highly rated restaurants, and the historic Plaza. Complementary breakfasts, and a 5:00 "happy hour" (with wine and hors d'ouvres), are served at the neighboring Vanessie restaurant; neither, however, are particularly inspiring.
