I can't not thank the Hotel St. Francis enough for making my wedding weekend, including my reception, an absolute dream. Christen Hadley, their event manager, instantly became a friend from our first encounter in December of last year. No matter what the request, Christen handled it with a smile on her face. She was the best part about planning my wedding, and I truly would say she treated me like family.
Every guest from my wedding stayed at this hotel, and was greeted by a wonderful staff with A+ hospitality. Upon my arrival, a couple of my guest's rooms had been lost in "the mix", but within 15 short minutes Alder, the front desk manager, had dissolved the problem and found everyone a room. No big deal.
If you are reading this and looking for a place to have your reception in Santa Fe for 50-120 people, this was absolutely the BEST place I ever could have imagined. The lobby area for our cocktail hour was so naturally beautiful that it didn't need ANY additional decorating. Our plated dinner was held in the restaurant (Table de los Santos) and once again this HARDLY needs decorating with the beautiful wood tables, leather chairs and stone fireplace creating a warm and intimate atmosphere.
The food and drinks I will certainly write about in another review, but WOW. The bar manager, Chris, could not have been more welcoming to myself, and my friends/family. He was more than accommodating, and he is a GREAT mixologist. Highly recommend getting a drink at the Secreto Lounge when you are in town. And then there is Julie who owns the restaurant. People could not stop talking about the food that was served at our wedding. This is NOT banquet-style food. This is gourmet food that is absolutely unforgettable, and cooked to PERFECTION.
The rating of "excellent" does not even begin to describe the experience I had at this location. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped make my wedding a beautiful success! I will come back and visit soon:)
