I have several compliments for this property, and one critique.
Before arriving, the General Manager was gracious enough to allow us to use Marriott Rewards points to reserve/upgrade to the Penthouse Suite w/ loft, which was very comfortable and spacious. The photos in the online gallery are true to portrayal. These rooms have wood-burning fireplaces, which was a novel (but welcome) amenity that we definitely used. The Penthouse rooms are accessed by stairs though, so take note if you have accessibility concerns. The property does have other suites on ground level though.
Breakfast (hot and cold) is served every morning and was nice for our family before we headed off to the slopes. Ski Santa Fé is about a 30 minute drive from the hotel, through downtown, and then up the mountain (which takes the majority of the time). It is only a few minutes from downtown though and right around the corner from the hospital (just in case).
The only issue I had was one of professionalism of two of the front desk employees. Although they were courteous for the most part, several times that I went down to ask questions or buy sundries these employees had what appeared to be several young friends or family members hanging out in the dining and reception areas, even one sitting on the reception counter next to me as I made an inquiry. It was a little off-putting and didn't reflect the standards that I have come to expect from Marriott properties.
All in all, this is a nice hotel near downtown and a short drive from the slopes with spacious, comfortable rooms with guest-oriented management. We'll likely return.
