I don't write a lot of reviews, but when I do, they reflect superior experiences.
We were travelling back to Canada from an extended stay in the USA. From Austin, we decided to stop in and check out Santa Fe for a couple of days. Three days at the most! We are enjoying Santa Fe and the Luxx so much that we are now on day 7. Every day we wake up and extend our visit.
The Luxx is firstly a very comfortable and relaxing boutique hotel. The hotel theme here is apparently 'Zen' (it sure feels Zen) and the atmosphere is luxurious, relaxed, laid back and accommodating. I'm sitting in the comfortable Luxx Lounge as I write this. Skylights, beamed ceilings, warm lighting, ceiling fans, tiled floors and soft jazz in the background. Aaaah. I'm surrounded by, and seated in, tasteful and comfortable furniture and unique original works of art are everywhere. It's unique, modern, tasteful and very comfortable. Plush.
The luxury and relaxed atmosphere extends to the rooms. Our room, number 8, is cozy and comfortable. In our experience, the finish in the room would command a much higher price than what we are paying. Rich hand painted and textured golds and browns that you just never seem to find in hotels. It's like an interior designer finished this room as a one-off and never left a thing out.
Comfortable bedding with an extra animal print throw for extra coziness. A bed bench and matching ottoman. Large closet. High quality bathroom fixtures and lighting. Original artwork in the rooms. Comfortable outdoor seating area with hot-tub. Secure parking. Great price.
For techies, you will not be disappointed. Fully WiFi with nice flat screens, Google TV, Netflix and premium cable.
Local amenities within 2 feet of front door include a great Sushi restaurant (Sushi Izmi) in the front of the hotel and a great cappuccino & tea joint next door for the morning coffee. There is a coffee maker, microwave and fridge in the room. Everyone is absolutely friendly and genuine.
A public building across the street for pet walking and great access to the Plaza, it's many galleries and restaurants. A++ location.
Deluxe. We love it. Can't wait to come back ... if we ever leave!
