“Santa Fe Hotel -- Enjoyed it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We stayed at the Eldorado Hotel & Spa in Santa Fe and enjoyed it. We have stayed at several hotels in the city, and will most likely return to the Eldorado. The other places were fine, but the Eldorado had a gym, which several others did not. The gym was also at least a bit larger than one converted claustrophobic hotel room. The hotel also had room service, which we didn't use, but it's nice to know it's there. The service was very good. Location is great. Comfortable rooms. The termperature control worked very well. The sounds proofing was not great in terms of the noise from the hallway.

I am a real traveler and this is a no BS review. The El Dorado is an excellent hotel. We rented two adjoining rooms for 4 days over Christmas 2012. There is nothing to complain about. Everything is great including: excersice room, staff, parking, rooms, beds, linens, food, bar, value for the price, location to everything in downtown. I will stay there again. You cannot go wrong. Believe me I am one picky SOB and this place is awesome,

Room Tip: Like any hotel dont stay near the elevators. Otherwise all the rooms are excellent.

As a long-time iPrefer member, I always seek out these properties first for lodging, whether traveling around the world on business or for pleasure. This was my first stay at the Eldorado, but it won't be the last. On our recent pre-Christmas trip to Santa Fe, we decided to stay at the Eldorado, primarily due to its location near the Plaza and other interesting places, such as the Georgia O'Keefe museum. We will return for the excellent service, friendly and helpful staff, and excellent accommodations. From the time we checked in to the time we left, the staff was attentive and very responsive to our needs, even when we wanted to build a cozy fire in the fireplace late at night and needed some kindling to do so. If you are considering a fine hotel property in Santa Fe, I highly recommend the Eldorado.

I stayted at the Eldorado hotel for business many, many times. It is a nice size hotel with all the amenities of a big hotel chain, but with the special additions of a smaller boutique hotel. Great restaurant (the Old House I think) is on the property, which is great on a freezing night! The bar area is hoping at night. The main breakfast area is okay- a little overpriced. The spa (I did not receive any services) is small but nice. My biggest beef with the gym is that they do not open until 7am because it is located over a hotel room. I sure wouldn't want to be stuck in that room!
Towards the end of my stay in Santa Fe on business, my team switched over to the Hilton across the street- to accumulate the coveted points that business travelers want so we can enjoy free hotel nights while on vacation.

Room Tip: try for a room away from the elevator- it can be a bit loud

Dear Krishellel,

We want to extend our warmest thank you for being a repeat guest. I am so happy that you have had an opportunity to use our different facilities and found them to be to your liking. I am sorry that you were not able to access the Gym until 7am as we normally have it open 24 hours a day. I noticed that you haven't as yet had an opportunity to use our spa facilities that I do hope you will make plans for during your next trip. We have a great team in this facility that has one wish to make your stay a memorable one.

Our warmest wishes to you and your family for the Holiday Season from your friends at the Eldorado.

My Mother and I booked a different hotel online and when we arrived it smelled like mold and the casitas were very run down unlike the photos online. So we checked into the Eldorado and had a wonderful stay. The staff were friendly and attentive in a geniune way.

The hotel is very dog friendly, has extremely comfortable beds, modern bathroom, beautiful view of downtown from our window, lively lounge, tasty fruit water in lobby and great breakfast. The only thing I noticed that needed attending to was cleaning the carpets in the hallway.

We went to look at other downtown hotels but were really happy we choose the Eldorado. I usually don't write reviews but after arriving at such a bad hotel, that had good reviews, I wanted to share how wonderful our stay was at the Eldorado. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Get a room with view of downtown.

After seeing a special for the El Dorado Hotel on TravelZoo, I booked two nights, Dec 6 and 7, as a birthday treat for myself so I could attend back-to-back Christmas concerts at the Cathedral of St. Francis and the Loretto Chapel and not have to drive the hour's drive home. I had a wonderful stay! Darlene at the front desk couldn't have been more wonderful, making sure I had a list of Santa Fe's weekend events, a map to find my way, and a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine. My room was most comfortable with a balcony, kiva fireplace, free WiFi, and even a refrigerator. I was easily able to explore downtown and then put my feet up to read and relax on the comfy bed. I only ate one meal at the El Dorado, but my breakfast in the Old House was delicious. I will definitely return again - the warmth of the service I received made my birthday most pleasant.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room.
