This was our third trip to Santa Fe, and first time to stay off the Plaza. The location is peaceful and the view from our terrace was nice. The room itself was spacious, however, the bathroom was underwhelming. Upon our arrival, there were clean glasses and makeup remover towelettes. After the first night, neither item was replenished. The used bottles of shampoo and lotion were left empty and scattered about the bath tub ledge our entire trip. The bath soaps are minuscule and replaced just once. The sinks were not scrubbed out the entire four days. Our kiva didn't start the first night and engineering had to come up and relight the pilot light. Soot everywhere that was never cleaned up.
We came to celebrate my fiftieth birthday. My husband informed them of this when booking but nothing special to mark the occasion. We celebrated his fiftieth at a spectacular hotel on the Plaza that went out of its way to help us mark the occasion.
The room was never refreshed before bed. No turn down service.
- 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
