I chose Inn of the Five Graces based on the fact I had never seen a more unanimous group of rave reviews for high end accommodations on Trip Advisor. We stayed three nights in September in the two bedroom/two bathroom Silk Tree. This place is as beautiful and comfortable as any high end resort, but is also completely unpretentious. As everyone else has noted in their reviews, it is the staff that makes the Inn rise to the level of exceptional. Every need was anticipated. The no tipping policy is a delight. The fact that you don't have to pay for the minibar items - and that they will stock anything you request - extremely convenient. The included breakfast was delicious in the beautiful and serene courtyard setting. The gym was small, but nice equipment. Their elliptical aggravated my patellar tendinitis, but my husband and daughter used the elliptical and the treadmill. The location could not have been better for walking all over - which is how I prefer to explore cities - and having never been to Santa Fe before, it proved ideal. If I had to dig to find a single negative thing to say, it would be that the two foot drop to get into the tub/shower was a bit awkward, even with the grab bar. Other than that, if I returned to Santa Fe, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
- 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
