But it was very disappointing. My daughter and I planned a last-minute trip to Santa Fe, so of course it was difficult to find a reasonably-priced place to stay. The room itself was very nice, with comfortable beds, nice linens, and plenty of room. But as others have mentioned, the extremely loud air conditioner was a big minus. The shuddering boom every time the compressor went on or off made sleep very difficult.
The other incredibly annoying thing was the slamming doors. Unless you hold the doors carefully until they are closed, they slam loudly. I've never experienced such a cacophony of slamming doors anywhere. From the time the first guest arises in the morning, there is no way to sleep. Surely it would be possible to install pneumatic door closers that would solve the problem.
The cleanliness of our bathroom was a bit disappointing. There was no visible dirt, but it smelled as though someone had used the same dirty mop over and over on the floor.
There were some pluses -- friendly staff, decent continental breakfast (it wasn't the hotel's fault that we were there at the same time as a particularly obnoxious little brat who literally ran everyone out of the breakfast room), nice pool, lovely landscaping, etc. But we will probably not return. The noisy AC and doors made getting a good night's sleep impossible.
