Let me first preface this review by saying that for what I payed, this place was very enjoyable, but for the price that I've seen it advertised, I would have been very disappointed. First room we were given was old, dirty and generally depressing. We were moved to a much nicer room that was very romantic. The staff was helpful and friendly, the food and room service was very good. The property seems to be falling apart a bit. The building's are in bad need of re-stuccoing, there are sidewalks and stairs that are crumbling and disintegrating. The spa was adequate and the swimming pool seemed nice, although it was too cold to enjoy. The location is great, just a quick 5-10 minute jaunt down Bishop's Lodge Road takes you right into the plaza in Santa Fe. This place has major potential and you can tell that in the past it was an amazing place. Sadly, it seems to be losing its luster a bit, hopefully they can tighten up some of their issues and this property could be top notch.
- 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
