Reviewed September 26, 2011

There are plenty of reviews on here about the hotel, which I pretty much agree with. The hotel was beautiful, with pottery everywhere. Pools were nice, fitness area was good, restaurants pretty good, too. All staff were friendly. The spa, though, was awesome! It was huge, had steam, sauna and whirlpool available if you booked a treatment or are just a Hiltons reward member.There were lockers, big fluffy robes and shoes, a lounge where you could wait until your spa. The actual spa room was huge as well and had beautiful lighting and relaxing music. I had a facial by Vanessa. She definitely provided extra treatments, hand massage, scalp massage, all done professionally and thoroughly. They also provide shampoo, soaps, deodorants, hair products and even mouthwash! You definitely need to make time to treat yourself to a spa treatment. Facial was $120, a little expensive, but worth it.

We had a three day stay there on our way up to Colorado. We're not gamblers but the casino is quite large. The room was spacious and very well appointed. The balcony was great and offered a great view. The spa is VERY nice and if you are a Hilton Honors member, the spa is free. The indoor pool is very nice with a great hot tub. The outside pool is huge with very nice cabanas to get you out of the sun. The in-room food was good but the food at the Red Sage was great. We've stayed in a lot of Hiltons and this was definitely one of the nicer ones. Staff was friendly and helpful. A room like that for $100? Unheard of! I think the casino may be subsidizing that. So if you aren't a gambler, all the better! We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

We don't gamble but were looking for a reasonably priced hotel and didn't mind being a bit out of town. We chose the Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino and stayed twice. We paid under $100 for a very large room in a casita, and that included complementary breakfast in the main building. The casino, if you are so inclined, is an easy walk across the parking lot. Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Choose a room not in the main casino building, overlooking the golf course, for a great rate.

We've always talked about taking a road trip to Santa Fe and Taos and finally decided to do it for our 38th Anniversary. The staff was nice and extremely helpful. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and a nice variety of pillows. The large shower was great - especially since my husband is 6'9" and hotel showers are usually a challenge for him. We also enjoyed our celebration dinner at the Red Sage Restaurant - YUM!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with a balcony - good views!

I was booked next door at the Homewood Suites for 3 nights during Santa Fe Indian Market in August. When I arrived the desk clerk told me that they only had me for two nights. If you have every been to Market you know how tough it is to get a room in Santa Fe. We were crushed. I called this hotel and they could not have been more helpful. I am not a gambler but you don't need to be to enjoy this hotel. My best recommendation is always whether I would stay again. Oh yea much better than Homewood Suites next door. I'll be back next year.
