We knew when we booked this lodge that it was not on the plaza. We did not expect to have to drive so far to get a bite to eat or a drink. The one resort dinning option is ok for 1 day but not if your spending several day's.
This resort presented itself as a higher end resort, it probably was in it's "hey day". They desperately need to put some money into the property. Beware of the sidwalks, all are crumbling. Our tub\shower was molded and instead of cleaning they tried to cover it up with caulking.
The beds are old and need to be upgraded. You'll need ibuprophen in the AM for sure.
No air conditioner only a fan! It was miserable at night.
Beware of room service. We ordered breakfast and found that the menu was not up to date. The person on the phone gave me the options and helped me place my order. What she did not disclose is that the menu prices had drastically changed. When the food was delivered we were shocked to see the bill.
Overall this property in overrated. I'm sure several years ago it may have been a nice place but they need to reinvest some money to bring it back up to par.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In August of 1851, a Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Lamy, arrived in the NM Territory as the first Bishop of Santa Fe. Here he built a private retreat; his chapel still stands today, now on the national register of historic places. After Lamy's Death, the land was acquired by the Pulitzer publishing family as a private vacation retreat. In 1917, the Thorpe family from Denver fell in love with these pristine acres, bought the property and developed the first resort in the state. Today Bishop's Lodge comprises 15 lodges for a total of 110 rooms ranging in sizes from 250 sq feet to 450, not to mention a 2000 sq foot Presidential Suite. Many of our rooms feature fireplaces and the majority all have outdoor access to patios, lawns or balconies. Our ShaNah Spa and Wellness Center which opened up in June of 2002 is a sanctuary where one can take time out to be nurtured by Mother Nature, guided by ancient wisdon and touched by angels. The experience may change your life. Other activities are abundant such as: trap/skeet shooting (offered to groups of 10 or monmre roomnights), horseback, pony trail rides, hiking, mountain biking, fitness center, excercise studio, outdoor pool, whirlpool and tennis to mention a few. Bishop's Lodge is located just 3 miles from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. Complimentary shuttle service is provided by the lodge at scheduled times daily. ... more less
