As befits "the city different", this is not a standard-issue five-star hotel. It has no pool and no restaurant of its own. However, given its location, either side of a small side-road (E de Vargas St) in the centre of walkable Santa Fe, neither of these two things matters at all.
What you do get are generously sized rooms decorated with a touch of genius, a first-rate free breakfast, wonderful staff and a super location. It is expensive, but soft-drinks from the minibar and wifi and breakfast are all free, which compensates for this (compensates quite a lot, given what I have paid for these extras elsewhere). Room service is available from two nearby restaurants under the same ownership - but equally this is not the kind of stuck-up place where you can't order in a pizza from anywhere.
In its way, this is a template for a new kind of luxury hotel - without the usual bluster and pomposity - the money instead goes towards architecture and helpful, intelligent staff, rather than on a lot of gratuitous and unmemorable nonsense.
We all loved it.
