“Perfect place to relax!”
My partner and I absolutely loved this hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who couldn’t have been more helpful. Our pleasantly large room was very quiet, very clean and had everything we needed to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The decor had obviously been chosen with great attention to detail and sits perfectly within the surrounding area. There was also free parking on site and breakfast included. The location of the hotel is ideal for walking around the old town where there are some delightful shops. Visit the Del Charro bar next door to the hotel – it has great food at very reasonable prices as well as a very relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. We were only there for one night but wished we could have stayed longer.

“Great stay in Santa Fe”
Hotel has one of the best locations for seeing the old town area of Santa Fe. Room was clean and
quiet, and the staff was most helpful. Don’t overlook the bar/restaurant. Although not large, it
offers very good food at very reasonable prices.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much though we used Hotwire to get a good price. It is in a
great location close to most of the sights in the area. It has free parking and morning brunch for
guests. The rooms are decorated in a Southwestern style and are quite comfortable. Del Charro is
attached the hotel and was a nice place for breakfast, lunch, and a drink in the evening.
Room Tip: It looked like a room in the main building or in the attached wing would be best.

“A Great Santa Fe Location with Outstanding Staff”
I was in Santa Fe for business, and booked myself into this hotel for five days. They exceeded my
expectations across the board. It is not luxurious, but is extremely clean, well appointed, and well
cared for. I would agree with others that the parking stalls are small, but it was not a big deal…and I
was able to maneuver my rental (A Cadillac) into a spot every night.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best of any hotel I have ever been to where breakfast is
included. The dining staff (sandbar staff) was attentive and efficient.
I have to single out one of the staff, the security guard Stephen. I told him I was there for a
photographic workshop and was looking for places to shoot. He went out of his way to give me
suggestions and even contacts at locations where I could go to shoot. Above and beyond the call of
duty. Very nice.
All in all, I would highly recommend a stay here, and will stay again in the future.

“Charming hotel, great location, big NM breakfasts and excellent bar”
After two nights here, I would love to have stayed longer. This charming hotel is great value for
money, has excellent staff, is located within walking distance of the main sights and offers both a
great breakfast buffet as part of the room price and generous Margaritas in the popular bar.
When I arrived in the evening – unfortunately missing the free sherry or tea served daily 4-5 pm
– there was plenty of room to park, the exterior balconies that lead to the rooms were lined with
swathes of flowers and my room itself (308, a corner) was spacious with a good bathroom area,
hidden fridge, large TV and lots of nice details.
The hotel decor is classic traditional New Mexico with lots of colourful hangings and furnishings,
exposed timbers and well maintained plants. The small pool has space to also lie down and relax.
The Del Charro bar-café is partly in a patio and has good local fare (some local restaurants are
expensive) for lunch and dinner. At the bar, a nice detail is how the cocktail shaker with your
margarita is left beside your filled glass for refills at the price of one drink.
The breakfasts, included in the very reasonable prices of the rooms, can be a major meal if you feast
from the extensive buffet which includes New Mexico chiles, tacos, spicy scrambled eggs and all
sorts of goodies.
The hotel will arrange a morning tour of Santa Fe that departs from the hotel. It takes in the major
city sights including the must-see Canyon Road concentration of art studios and galleries that help
make Santa Fe the number three art outlet in the US after New York and LA. The native Indians
also sell jewelry etc in the main plaza in the colonnade in front of the Governor’s House Museum.
