We were traveling to New Mexico and needed a place for the night. This hotel was on our list of potentials and we were more than pleased. The courtyard with fountain and hummingbirds leading to the lobby was our first clue and it just kept getting better. Our room was pure luxury with a delightfully comfortable king bed and elegant bedding. The restaurant served excellent food and adult beverages. And the price could not be beat. We would have paid way more in another city.
