My wife and I had to make some last-minute vaction plan changes. Suddenly, Santa Fe was on our list.
The night before the changes, I happened to see a brief Samantha Brown review of the Inn of Five Graces. It was some kind of show about the best places a bunch of travel personalities had been but were unknown to most folks. I couldn't believe how over-the-top this place looked on TV. Reviews on Trip Advisor were glowing. So I thought, why not?
The Inn's web site is heinous beyond belief. Terrible. Can't use it. Fortunately, I gave up and did a room search via Trip Advisor. I was surprised to find a really afordable price if we stayed 2 nights during the week. Just so happened to be exactly what we needed. Booked it through Expedia.
It was still expensive for us, but worth it! This is one of those rare places that you need to just reach deep into your pocket for once in your life.
Outside is understated old Santa Fe elegance as is the office and breakfast areas. The guest rooms, however, are way, way over the top. Southwest meets middle east in a head-on collision. But so much thought went into each detail. It's no mistake. It's really something!
You will feel like you are in some other world while inside your room. Rooms also have wood-burning fireplaces, which was great for us during November. (Don't worry, they also have central heat and air). The staff is very attentive and will even build a fire in that fireplace for you if you wish. Or will leave you completely alone if you wish. Whatever you want.
If you aren't amazed at this place, I really think that there is something wrong with you!
