It's not often that every guidebook recommends the same place, but I can see why they do the El Rey for Santa Fe. That plus the rave reviews here on TA convinced us to stay and we are very glad we did. The drive down Cerrillos road from i-25 is dismal but the El Rey complex was simply gorgeous with all the roses in full bloom. For once we could literally smell the flowers. Ravens everywhere added an exotic touch for us.
The neighborhood is fine, in fact just two doors down the street on the same side is a thrift shop where we bought a designer denim jacket for $4. Even though we booked on Expedia instead of directly with El Rey, they gave us a very nice room off the courtyard with a fountain and benches. It's a straight shot down to the plaza and very easy drive.
The breakfast staff is cheery and the ambience great. The pool was indeed very popular but we preferred to sit outside the room and read and watch the ravens splash in the fountains Parking was easy and plentiful and free. A very good bargain,
