Jonathan at night check in May 31,was not helpful. Talked little. Smiled not at all. Later he proved lacking answers also & no options were offered. Our parking costs were particularly aggravating.

They only problem we had was that the pillows in the room were a lot softer than we are use to. Usually when there are multiple pillows on the bed, they are different firmness, but ours were all really soft. Other than that, the hotel was great! It is located where you can walk to everything you need to do.

Quality in every detail

Pros: This hotel captures the spirit of New Mexico. The atmosphere is relaxing & delightful.
Location: The location is in the heart of the downtown plaza. Wonderful restaurants, upscale jewelry & clothing shops & art museums are within walking distance.
We enjoyed the entire experience at this enchanting hotel. The lobby is beautifully decorated with original artwork, pots of orchids & comfortable seating areas. There's a small coffee bar for light breakfasts. The bar has reasonably priced lunches & light dinner fare. We spent time relaxing in front of the two Pueblo fireplaces. Our room was very clean & furnished in the Southwestern style we were hoping to find. The staff is friendly & accommodating. The location is perfect for walking to art galleries & shops.

Excellent— perfect place to stay for that Sante Fe

Pros: Above
Location: In the middle of downtown lots of good restaurants within walking distance
Get the Santa Fe feeling with real wood burning fires in the lobby. Great restaurant in the lobby with northern New Mexico food. Food bar a little pricey but that is Santa Fe
