We stayed for 2 nights in the Ivy Suite. In all the best ways it felt like we were staying at Grandma's house. The Ivy Suite is the top level of the house and has funky attic ceilings with all sorts of cool windows and nooks & crannies. (My husband is 6 ft tall and never hit his head and felt comfy in the room). The room was perfectly clean but there were a few rough edges like some hooks in the bathroom that had been moved around and not repainted, but it wasn't enough to bother me. Really, it felt like we were staying in a family home. The main gathering area is very comfortable, but we spent more time in the Hacienda Nicholas across the way since that's where breakfast & nightly appetizers are served which is also very charming. The breakfasts were great. Really yummy! The appetizer night wasn't too amazing - just chips & salsa the night we went and it's bring your own bottle of wine due to alcohol laws in New Mexico. The staff was all very friendly and helpful and gave great suggestions for galleries, etc. We walked everywhere from the Madeline and just kept our car in their free lot. It took about 3 minutes to walk to the plaza and about 5 minutes to walk to Canyon Road. We also took advantage of the spa which was fantastic. I had one of the best massages of my life there as did my husband. If we come back to Santa Fe, we will stay here again and recommend to friends.
