“Fantastic find”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Off the main road but very walkable to Plaza, this small 8 room quasi B&B is perfect for a romantic stay in Taos. Rooms are large, clean, quiet. Breakfasts are plentiful and made fresh daily, no dry cereal or pastries from a factory here. Beautiful attention to New Mexican and Taos heritage in room decor. You almost hate to leave the room, just sit by your fireplace with a glass of wine and let Taos work its magic.
Skylights,kiva fireplaces, heated tile floors, fantastic staff make this a must do.
Be aware if walking to the Plaza, there are no sidewalks between hotel and main road but few cars and slow speeds make this almost a non issue.

Room Tip: All rooms have private outside entrances, no access from main house where breakfast is served.

The Palacio is a perfect weekend getaway for anyone who is looking for a unique cultural Taos experience. The inn is just off the main road and is absolutely beautiful! The manager, Chad, was an absolute joy and was extremely helpful. He was available whenever we needed assistance, gave great food recommendations in the area, and was kind and courteous the whole weekend. Breakfast at the Palacio was also a delight - I'd stay again just for the pumpkin pancakes!

We were welcomed by the manager, Chad, who showed us around the facility and our room of this lovely estate populated with numerous huge, huge trees. The courtyard was showing it's age and is being redone as you read this. The B&B is several blocks off the main street (quiet) and quite close to the downtown plaza where most of the dining and shops are. Rooms were nice, included a fireplace with wood, and huge bathrooms with robes. Sauna room & workout center was open, but the outdoor hot tub wasn't. The breakfast was good, but not as memorable as conversations with other guests at the large dining table. Nice amenities in the room, but no cream for coffee - only milk at breakfast??

We recently spent a long weekend at the Palacio de Marquesa in Taos, and what a great time and stay we had. The gorgeous cottonwood and willow trees surrounding the property were in full color and provided wonderful shade and atmosphere. The property itself has a great, old-world Spanish feel, but the rooms are cozy, beautiful and nicely appointed.

Chad, the general manager, served as a great host and was very attentive to all of our needs and questions. For instance, his recommendation of the local restaurant, Love Apple, was perfect. He also made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

The breakfasts at Palacio also are winners. Lots of good food, and each main course was interesting and done nicely.

Can't say enough about this place and our stay. Just marvelous and within an easy walk of the main square. We will be back and are already looking forward to that next stay.

Room Tip: We were in the Rio Grande room. Great fireplace, spacious bathroom (including a corner spa tub) and...

We were delighted with our stay here! Chad, the manager, was quite welcoming, informative, and helpful and helped us find a wonderful, eclectic restaurant for dinner (The Love Apple--NOT to be missed, but advance reservations are a must!). The room was quite spacious and elegant, with a comfortable bed, enormous bathroom, and cozy fireplace--all done in the Southwest style. Chad also gave me a guided tour of many of the other rooms, and all are equally lovely and unique. Chad also informed me that the rooms were all undergoing restoration, and I look forward to returning to see what has been done. Very friendly, close to downtown but secluded, good breakfasts, and very comfortable. We came for a romantic getaway weekend--and found it!

We just had an absolutely incredible experience at Palacio de Marquesa! The staff was nice and helpful which made our stay more memorable. It was a perfect location near the plaza with huge trees surrounding the property. The room was quiet, warm and inviting with a great kiva fireplace and a spa tub. The breakfasts were homemade and were typically regional cuisine. We met several other people at the breakfast table, some from San Francisco, others from NM just enjoying a weekend away. It was fun to compare notes on local sites and get the staffs suggestions on what to see and where to eat each morning. Chad is the General Manager and he greeted us the moment we arrived and was always there with a smile. We are already planning our next adventure to Taos this winter for skiing and we will stay here again. Did I mention this was our honeymoon? We had a perfect 3 night stay, in a perfect setting. Cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rio Grande Room, very spacious, spa tub and kiva fireplace!

Really liked nothing about this hotel. The staff was rude as soon as we walked in and things went downhill from there. Staff wasted about 3 hours of our vacation time trying unsuccessfully to fix multiple mistakes. We will never return. Fortunately found the El Monte Sagrado nearby which was an absolute joy with great food, pool, sauna, in-room whirlpools (that work!), comfortable beds and first class staff and service.

Room Tip: Do not think it has good rooms. I would not expect much from breakfast either.
