We just returned from the most magnificent weekend...thanks to everyone at Inn of the Five Graces. I've never been treated with such warmth and respect from hotel staff. They always have a smile in their voice from the moment I made reservations right up until checkout. They were always pleased to do anything for us without hesitation. The hotel is so charming and beautiful that it feels like home right when you arrive. Our room was the Birdsong Room and was so spacious and lovely. I really like that the gorgeous bathroom was quite a distance from the bedroom for privacy. The detailed mosiac tile work in the bathroom is stunning! It has a huge walk in shower! The living room was comfortable with a nice size tv (with Direct tv for our viewing pleasure) and a cd/iPod/iPhone player with beautiful cds available right there for lovely backround music. Believe it or not, the hotel DOES NOT charge for anything you use from the minibar......ok, how often do you see that?? They also don't encourage "tipping" during your stay which is a nice treat but you will find that at checkout, you will WANT to leave the staff a generous gratuity as they are all so wonderful! The bedroom was lovely with a small private patio. My only minor complaint is that the bed (which is so comfortably cozy) is a little large for the room. The person sleeping against the far wall has a tough time maneuvering out of the bed b/c it's right up against the wall. Perhaps a smaller bed? Just a thought.
There is a wonderful community patio just outside the room for quiet reading or just napping. The morning breakfast (which is complimentary) was fantastic. The meals were delicious (really anything you want....) and you can either sit inside or outside in a lovely courtyard with a fountain on beautiful mosaic tables. Right next door is a restaurant (Pink Adobe) if you get hungry (or thirsty) and don't want to stray too far. The Seret family really made sure they created the most heavenly environment for any traveler. I wanted to adopt every staff member I met there. It really did feel like home. I have to say there were a couple moments when i wished there was a small pool though. The weather was wonderfully warm and I imagined taking a quick dip but when the most delicious chocolate covered strawberries showed up at my room, I completely forgot about a pool................... I will be back "in your good graces" again. Thank you for the best weekend !!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In one of Santa Fe’s most historic neighborhoods, designers Ira and Sylvia Seret, transformed a neglected cluster of traditional adobe buildings into a unique hotel. As internationally-known importers of exotic antiques, rugs, textiles and architectural elements, the Serets conceived the hotel as a showcase for their combined creative talents. From its 1996 opening as “Serets’ 1001 Nights”, the 24-suite hotel has been a magical retreat, brimming with the most exquisite of the Serets’ treasures, collected on travels through Central and South Asia. Sylvia Seret’s glorious, one-of-a-kind tile mosaics adorn the suites’ kitchens and bathrooms, while Ira Seret’s signature design style makes every space an extraordinary living experience. In 2002 the Inn was renamed to honor its sensuous atmosphere along with its many Afghan and Tibetan artifacts. The name, “Five Graces”, refers to an Eastern concept — the five graces of sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Each needs to be honored in the full experience of life. Over the years, the Serets’ original vision has been continually developed with meticulous attention to excellent service, cuisine, and comfort as the Inn has grown into newly acquired properties on its historic street. They continually enhance the hotel’s visual experience, updating design elements and collection pieces throughout. The Inn’s mission is to offer guests a uniquely unforgettable experience. ... more less
