“Spring Break in Santa Fe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

The Madeleine Inn was an old and charming B&B. Quite location easy walking distance to downtown attractions. Room was smallish but comfortable, great king bed. However, in our room, Morning Glory, the bath sink was in the room while shower and toilet were in the bathroom. All high quality fixture but not all together. Another room the bath was across the hall. The sink in the room was a surprise but didn't bother us; the overall pleasant accommodations made this a minor issue. But if you are bath phobic check first.

Thank you for writing such a helpful and informative review. The Madeleine Inn is indeed an historic property, having been built by a railroad tycoon in 1886. At the time, having one indoor bathroom was considered the height of luxury. When the building was turned into an inn almost 30 years ago, a bathroom was added for each guest room, but given the constraints of space, they are not our modern-sized bathrooms. The Morning Glory (measuring 14’x18’) has one of the smaller bathrooms, with the sink in the bedroom itself. We recognize this is an unusual set-up, though have made a point of making this bathroom as nice as possible. For guests seeking the charm of an historic building but wanting a larger and more conventional bathroom, I would recommend The Columbine, Forsythia or Violet Suites. The last two, Violet and Forsythia, are particularly lovely and spacious. They were built in the back garden of the inn, in line with the architectural style of the original home, and are very spacious and offer much larger bathrooms.

My husband and I were so impressed with our stay. We stayed in the Cttonwood. The room was clean, cozy and inviting. The ladies who took care of us and cooked our breakfast. Breakfast was superb. We also had our little dog with us and the staff even made sure of her comfort. I will definately visit again and advise others to do the same!

Sincerely,
Shirley

Room Tip: We loved the cottonwood

Just returned from staying 2 nights in the Forsythia with 2 friends to celebrate our birthdays. Room was very clean and comfortable - great beds and pillows! A personable, personal, attentive and charming inn and staff. At $200 per night, with a very good breakfast included we thought it was a bargain for the area. Excellent location, too. Just a few blocks from the Plaza yet with a quiet, residential feel. We did not have the opportunity to experience the spa but will certainly make a point of it next visit. Only complaint was that the room was chilly. Granted it was cold (in the 20's) outside but the gas fireplace and a rather ineffective space heater did not warm the room sufficiently. But the multiple comforters and blankets kept us toasty during the night!

Thank you for writing such a glowing review of your stay in Forsythia. Gee, I sure wish had known you were chilly. There is a brand new, perfectly-functioning heater and air conditioning unit in the suite. The controls are by the window facing the garden and spa, and work with a simple up and down of the arrow for more or less heat. You would have been as toasty as you would have wanted to be.

The gas fireplace is more for ambiance than heat, and the space heater is for additional heat in the bathroom - not meant to heat the room.

I am delighted that you so enjoyed your stay, and am very sorry that you were unnecessarily chilly. We certainly look forward to your next visit, and will make sure you are completely comfortable!

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

My daugter and I recently stayed in the Morning Glory room at the Madeline Inn. We wanted our stay in Santa Fe to be totally relaxing and we nailed it by staying there. From the minute we opened the front door to the minute we left, it was total relaxation. The spa treatments are beyond a doubt, the best I've ever had! The bed is like sleeping on a cloud, the staff is warm and friendly, and Greg really serves the best breakfast ever! The Inn is within walking distance to so many good restauants and shops. Our stay there felt more like visitng good friends than just staying in a hotel. If you want to relax and enjoy the essence of Santa Fe, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: The Morning Glory was a great size to allow leaving luggage out and not be cramped. The bed is exce...

My mom and I were on a road trip, but couldn't go through Santa Fe without staying a night and walking around the next day. We called day of and were given a significant discount since we wouldn't be there until later and would miss the appetizer hour. Nice! It was very easy to let ourselves in after-hours, get settled and walk down to the square to find a late dinner. We stayed up quite late, so woke up later. Stayed in the Columbine room a beautiful, comfortable, cozy room. It was on the first floor so, as with most bed and breakfasts, we did hear some noises as we still tried to sleep, but it wasn't any more than I would expect. And we were sleeping in, so it wasn't too early. Breakfast was amazingly unique and delicious. Quinoa for breakfast! And we talked to staff and other guests like they were family (better actually). They then allowed us to keep our car in their parking lot until the afternoon while we walked around. Not always possible, but it wasn't a busy day for them. Great experience. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Forsythia Suite. What a wonderfully romantic room, fireplace and all. Regan was a wonderful hostess and rescued us when I left my cell phone locked in the room, at 6 in the morning! What a wonderful place. I highly recommend staying here. The breakfasts were marvelous.

Room Tip: The Forsythia Suite was wonderful. Highly recommend.
