My husband and I just stayed at the Inn of the Five Graces for 4 nights and it was delightful. Typically we look for the more modern chic boutique hotels, but we had attended a wedding here a few years ago and heard great things about it so we gave it a try.
It is a gorgeous property - just a few blocks from the plaza, but far enough away for comfortable privacy. We stayed in room 23. The furnishings and decor were rustic chic - amazing antiques from Tibet as well as columns and architectural details that you just don't see very often. The bathroom was a perfect size, with both a jacuzzi tub and a large glass-doored shower, and plenty of counterspace and shelves. The most impressive detail was the mosaic tilework in the bathroom. The robes they supplied were the most comfortable robes my husband and I have ever experienced. The bed was amazing. A huge king-size with a feather bed on top. We truly enjoyed the corner fireplace which was set up for us every evening when we got back to the room.
Like other have said, the Inn is a non-tipping establishment, but there is a 10% service charge per day added to your bill. We really thought that we got our money's worth. The service was impeccable. The staff went out of their way to make us feel special. I felt guilty not tipping them! The breakfasts were a perfect start to the day - great quality food and selection. The refrigerator was full of goodies, and I am told that if you really have a hankering for something to let them know and you might be pleasantly surprised to find it the next day in your room. The cookies and the dreamcatcher at bedtime was a wonderful surprise.
We definitely will stay at the Inn of the Five Graces again. The details are what matters, and they do it very well.
- 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
