“Romantic hidden gem in downtown Santa Fe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

Inn of the Five Graces is a little paradise to be found in the heart of Santa Fe. With hidden courtyards, patios to lounge on, attentive staff and close proximity to the plaza, there isn't much more to ask for. While it is pricey, a splurge on this place is definitely worth it. Amazing beds, ornate bathrooms, a set of CDs with eclectic music and well-done design, the rooms are unique and comfortable.
We eloped here and have fond memories of the long-weekend we spent. We can't wait to go back for an anniversary.

Room Tip: Each room is unique and different - I don't think you could go wrong!

This hotel is a jewel in the middle of old town. For those who love the exotic it will exceed your expectations. The genuinely happy, helpful staff are attentive to every detail that makes you feel welcome, before and after you set foot in your room. When you open the door it is as if you've arrived in a kasbah retreat, and it will envelop you. Color and light have been carefully thought out to enhance every corner of this property. The tile mosaics that adorn the room walls are spectacular in their own right, I enjoyed the Artist's detailed touch of whimsy seeing the animals, pots and flowers. As the name implies, this Inn will feed your senses and it is a place you won't want to leave. The courtyards and balconies are inviting even with the fountains dusted with snow as they were in our recent winter visit. Breakfast for guests is lovingly prepared from a simple menu to your order. Rosa's special was just that, don't miss trying her red and green "Christmas" sauce.
Though the rooms are not particularly spacious, they are private, quiet, and comfortable from the lush feather beds, down to sitting by your kiva fireplace.
The Inn of the 5 Graces is also within walking distance of many of Sante Fe's sights and restaurants, so if you like exploring by foot, you'll appreciate its location.

However, if you are a Marriott person who expects sterile walls and cookie-cutter amenities, The Inn of the 5 Graces will probably not appeal to you, so please move on. I found it to be a peace of serenity in the middle of Santa Fe and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: They are all special. However, if you have difficulty with narrow stairs, some have them (like the R...

Dear NinSB,

Thank you for your detailed description of our property and the gracious praise for the staff and Rosa. Thank you for also pointing out the very ornate and beautiful work of our tile artisan, Sylvia Seret, who’s masterpieces can be found in the majority of our suites. While some of our rooms are more intimate and true to Santa Fe traditional style, we do have suites available that are very spacious, so your tip to fellow travelers to inquire about the specifics of available rooms when booking is very good advice. We strive to provide a truly unique stay experience for all of our guests and in this regard we are as you indicated, certainly not sterile or cookie-cutter. We wish you safe and happy travels, a wonderful holiday season, and look forward to your return.

Blessings,
The Seret Family

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!

We recently celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Santa Fe. Our stay at the Inn of the Five Graces exceeded our expectations. We stayed a three room suite and enjoyed a full kitchen, living room and bedroom with a fireplace decorated beautifully in a southwestern style. The entire resort is beautifully appointed and so conveniently located. Breakfast each morning was delicious and we found treats in our room every night. The concierges were helpful and spot on with their recommendations. Everyone that was part of the staff was friendly, professional, and so helpful. We loved every minute of our stay and cannot wait to go back...

This property is located in the center of Santa Fe, walking distance to restaurants, shopping and sites. We walked everywhere and felt very comfortable walking late at night (3 women). Our room (Amber) had two bedrooms and one bath with a living room and mini fridge/sink area. The beds are very comfortable and the linens are very nice. A choice of pillows on the bed for your use. Black out drapes allowed us to sleep in. The bath had a deep soak tub and a large shower with two sinks. The bathroom products should of been more upscale for the price of the room, we had to call the desk for wash cloths the first night and they were quickly brought to the room and the following days the wash cloths were plentiful. The living room has a fireplace that we enjoyed every night and we could call ahead and the staff would have a fire burning for us when we arrived. We enjoyed sitting in the living room with the fire blazing and enjoying a glass of wine. I was disappointed that the mini bar selection was soda chips and snickers candy bars (the exception being some brie cheese). Maybe the staff would consider some local wine/beer and local chocolates? The lobby is across the street where we enjoyed free breakfast daily included with our room. Breakfast is very nice in a pleasant room with attentive service. Breakfast is ordered from the menu and includes a few choices of eggs/oatmeal/granola/fruit/grits etc. The coffee is excellent and we were able to have a pot delivered to our room. There is one very small television in the room, again for the price of the room a larger screen is called for. My only gripe would be dust, I set my hat on the closet shelf and a cloud of dust appeared. I understand a fire in the fireplace daily can increase the dust level but this should be addressed. The staff was very accommodating. The room would of been perfect had it been dusted properly and charged a more appropriate rate. The common areas are lovely and inviting.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, I suggest the top floor, as the property is 200 years old the floors cre...

Dear FastGirl39,

Thank you for your review and detailed comments. The time you have taken allows us to progress and to provide further information to future guests of our amenity options. It is always helpful to hear when any detail was missed as it allows us to examine and hone our guest service to an even higher standard. Please accept our sincere apologies for the issue of dust that you encountered during your stay. Being in the beautiful Southwest does have its issues and dust is certainly one of them. While we strive to make certain that every possible surface is attended to, we in this case missed and for that we are sorry. We have already addressed the issue with our housekeeping staff and have created a more regular schedule for further tackling the dust in those high places.
We agree with you that wine or beer in the mini-fridges would be a wonderful idea. However, due to state laws we are unfortunately unable to provide this as an amenity. We do however have a fantastic wine and beer selection available in our main Guest Services and Dining Building.
We hope the local brand of our bathroom products did not portray a lesser product, than a name-brand. We are very proud to offer the Desert Blend amenities as they are made locally in Taos blended with natural ingredients collected within the region, which is something not many “upscale” name-brands can claim. We do our best to support local businesses, especially those striving for a fine product offering.
Again, thank you for the opportunity to address some of your concerns and thank you for all the kind words about your stay. We wish you the very best in the New Year and would love to have you back with us should you visit Santa Fe again.

Blessings,
The Seret Family
