“Great place for a visit to Santa Fe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We went on a SniqueAway deal and really enjoyed our stay, which was 5 nights. Had a little stumble at the beginning with a rude bartender and clueless waitperson. But, other than that the service was great. Rooms are small, as noted by others. But, they are nicely furnished and have a great vintage feel. Lighting could be better in the bathroom, especially over the tub/shower. The hotel was full when we were there but it was very quiet in our room - never head a peep from other guests. The front porch area is a wonderful area to sit and relax in the AM or after a long day of sightseeing. Parking can be a little bit of a pain as the hotel lot is small with VERY small spaces. However, you can park in the public lot directly across the street and just get a voucher from the front desk. I recommend the St. Francis and would stay there again.

The staff were all very helpful and seemed to take pride in the hotel. It is right in the middle of all the "must see" attractions of Santa Fe, easy to find, easy to park a car. The room was small, but immaculate, with nice details, tile, furniture, italian linen etc. I'm not sure what people expect, this isn't las vegas its more like an old european hotel.

St Francis hotel has great location within old Santa Fe, walking distance to all points of interests. Hotel is located in older building and has its own unique atmosphere, although rooms are quite small. Staff was very helpful in locating our reservation, since I made reservation the same morning before arrival. Definitely recommended.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel last month for my son's wedding. The overall service and food were excellent, however, the room we stayed in was uncomfortably small. Despite the convenient location to the plaza and other old town sites, we would not stay in such a small room again especially given the fact that it was expensive.

Room Tip: perhaps a traveler could ask for a larger room

Over several years we have stayed in many hotels near the plaza in Santa Fe. We spent 5 nights at the Hotel St. Francis which was our first time to stay at this hotel. The room was small but very nice. I don't think i have ever stayed at a hotel with such a nice, friendly and accommodating staff! We loved being close enough to walk to everything and enjoyed the bar and sitting outside with drinks. We did not eat in the restuarant because we had so many other places we wanted to go.

Staff was clueless. We were then locked out for several hours due to a bomb threat and now we have no accomidations other than the nearest thing to a motel six and I'm going to cry. What was supposed to be a romantic get away with my love became a night mare!!!!

I really liked the charm and ambiance of this hotel. We were at a wedding and had close friends and family there as well. I loved the bar in the hotel. They made incredible original cocktails and we had great fun there. The restaurant in the hotel we had an issue on the day we were leaving. We waited about 45 minutes for breakfast and then skipped it. Sevice was poor that day. Over all I loved the location and had a great time.
