We were at the end of our long driving vacation around NM & made a last minute decision to spend our last night in Albuquerque near Old Town before flying home the next day. It's a good thing we stayed here our last night rather than the first because I never would have been able to get my husband to leave for the rest of the trip!! What a gem! The hotel is situated on a quiet corner across from a park/golf course, but just across the blvd from Old Town. You walk in and feel like you have just step back in time to a historic Santa Fe artist colony. Our "room" was actually a small historic cottage with a full kitchen & private patio. The unit was clean & very comfortable with vintage-looking furniture/antiques/art work. The bed was very comfortable. In fact, art work, flowering plants & water features are everywhere on the grounds. All the cottages face this lush courtyard with the exception of a couple of later addition modern rooms. We were in NM during a heat wave, but we were quite comfortable with just the ceiling fans, & the lushness of the courtyard. The breakfast room in the lobby bldg is light & airy and looks out on the courtyard as well. You can get a made-to-order breakfast which was quite tasty or have the usual continental fare found in other hotels. It was another nice surprise. All the staff was friendly & very helpful. We will definitely stay here and stay much longer when we are in Albuquerque again.
BTW: Don't be turned off by the outer space-looking structure on the entrance which is totally out of character with the rest of the place. It was supposedly added by a "famous architect" so the city will not let the owner remove it as he has requested. What was that architect thinking???
