Just spent a weekend at this magical hotel. The rooms are bohemian with a random collection of local Indian, Asian, Tibetan and Moroccan art, fixtures and tile. It is very hard to describe other than to say - wow, the eclectic nature of the decorating really works. It worked for me because it made me feel somewhere far away and unique, although it isn't that far from Texas. The hotel sits on the oldest continuously inhabited block in the United States. It is walking distance from the art galleries on Canyon Road and from the square. Restaurants like The Compound, Geronimo's and Georgia are easily walked. And walking is important in Santa Fe as my friends all warned me they are very harsh regarding drinking and driving. Why take a chance that you may have had 1 more glass of wine than you remember? I liked the Magnolia Room because it had a very large bathroom, which is unusual for such an old structure. Breakfast is included and is spectacular. I recommend the Huevos Rancheros. Make sure you try their chiles, both the green and the red. There is a wine tasting on Friday's at 5 pm - get there in time for that as they prepare a fun plate of cheeses, fruit, olives and pesto. The service is extraordinary and you will sleep well. I slept especially well because my AT&T phone did not function well or at all in the room - so you need to be aware of that. But truly, when you are sitting in this special, spirit filled place, you should leave your PDA behind anyway. Can't wait to return.
- 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
