Although we generally enjoyed our stay, not everyone would. So, read the entire review before deciding. PROS: 1. Great location in the center of town. 2. Best beds for sleeping ever. Frette sheets, lots of pillows--unbelievable. 3. Relaxing, almost zen-like atmosphere. Simple, old mission/ southwest-style decor. 4. Great bar. 5. Cool front porch for sitting and people watching. 6. Friendly and accomodating staff. CONS: 1. Tiny bathrooms, poorly lit with no room to set down toiletries. (We actually prefer the rooms with the sink in the bedroom.). 2. Poor functional design overall. 3. Small bedrooms. Only a few of the largest rooms have a desk. 4. Can't get a cup of coffee before 7:30am. 5. No newspapers. Definitely not a good choice for business travel. 6. Staff not very knowledgeable about Santa Fe. Only a part-time (and, frankly, ancient) concierge. Don't expect much help with tourist related questions. We had to book our own tours.
We had a special "Centennial package" rate. I would think twice before paying full rates. Overall, If you are not demanding and wish to relax, this is a great place. If you need all of the usual amenities, maybe not.
