We upgraded our room to stay in a deluxe suite because we have a toddler. Everyone sleeps much better if we sleep separately. The living space was spacious and comfortable. However, we did have numerous issues. First, when we arrived, our original room layout was not what we requested. The front desk found another suite that met our requirements, but we did have to wait over an hour. While the upgraded room was nice, the toilet did not work and in fact flooded the bathroom (very gross)! The heat was not working properly and the radiator that was brought to us didn't stand upright. A minor issue was the drops of condensation that would periodically drip from the windows in the ceiling. On the last night, our room keys didn't work. The front desk failed to fix the problem, so we would have had to drive back to the front desk had we not bumped into a worker who let us into our room. While the issues were significant, the staff handled the problems promptly and were very nice. They agreed to eliminate the charge for the upgraded room because of our trials and tribulations. Once the kinks were worked out, we had a nice stay. Because there were some aspects that were great but some aspects that were not so great, I would have to rate the place neutrally.
- 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
