This was our first visit to Santa Fe, and chose the Hotel Santa Fe based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel was in a convenient location, was beautifully decorated, and the staff was excellent. One of the best features was the free shuttle that ran to popular areas such as the Plaza. It was very convenient, we rarely waited more than 10 minutes, and the drivers were professional and friendly. We would return again, and highly recommend this hotel.

Favorite part of staying at the Hotel Santa Fe - Kachina dolls left on our comfy bed every night. We came home with 3 kachina dolls. We got a special rate of $179 a night for a room with a very comfy king bed and a separate area with a pull-out couch and bar area. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated with the Picurus Pueblo Indian influence. We also received 3 $25 vouchers for meals at the hotel's Amaya Restaurant. The Elk dish was fabulous as was the Jalapeño Margarita. The hotel is about a 2 block walk from town, not bad, there is a shuttle but I have to say that there was a bit of a wait for the ride. We just walked. The hotel is not too far from the Farmers Market area.. Do not miss that on saturdays as it is one of the best Farmer's Markets in the country . Hotel also has a nice pool, fitness center and spa for tired shoppers and sightseers at the end of the day. Check to make sure the hot tub at the Fitness center is up and running as it was down when we were there - I am sure that is temporary. Also, enjoyed immensely, the wonderful Antonio Mendoza playing in the bar - bought 3 of his CDs and 1 CD from the Native American flute player. Side note: the kiddos might enjoy having their dinner served to them in the teepee outside the restaurant. All and all a very nice and unique hotel, at a fair price when discounted and with the restaurant vouchers!

Room Tip: The only service issue was the wait for the shuttle... but not a bad walk to town. Value is good at...

I stayed here one night thanks to Hotwire - it was a quick business trip. I wish I were there for longer, and ideally with my husband. The room was lovely. Not very large, but had a fireplace, nice bathroom, and very comfortable bed. The artwork in the Hacienda was nice. I went to the wine hour in the evening, and the hosts had good suggestions for places to eat. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Plaza - and since it's a bit away from the Plaza it is very quiet.

I had breakfast as well - it was fairly basic but everything was good.

Parking is free, and the grounds are nice.

Service was excellent.

We recently stayed here on our family vacation. Beautiful hotel. Our suite was wonderful. Even though it was June, we got to use the fireplace while we were there. Our butler Lubo was fantastic. The hotel is quiet and the beds are very comfortable. I really enjoyed the big soaker tub with its own television. We all had a very relaxing stay while we were there. And we loved the hotel shuttle!!

We came down from Colorado for a nice little weekend getaway. I am glad that we picked this hotel. From the moment we walked in everything just seemed wonderful. The front desk staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The room we had was the Picuris Suite Jr. It was very clean, updated and spacious. Our room faced the pool on the second floor and had a little balcony. It really is a little balcony. 2 people max could fit on ours. One chair comfortably. But cant really complain because a lot of places don't even have the option of outdoor space. One thing i did however not enjoy was the air conditioning unit. Maybe it was just in our room, but every time the air came on the vent made a noise and with it being right above the bed woke me up a few times. The pool was great. It did get pretty crowded around 10:30 am and all the chairs and tables filled up pretty quick. It was a Saturday, but I would recommend getting there a little early for a lounge chair. Overall this was such a great little hotel that I would stay at again and recommend.

Thank you for coming down form Colorado and staying with us.

I am so pleased to know that we took good care of you but apologies for the noisy air conditioning unit - hopefully you told us about it and it has been fixed.

Many thanks for your recommendation and hopefully you will come down from the glorious mountains of Colorado and visit us again soon!

I am writing this from the hotel. We have been here 4 nights. It is a beautiful property. We requested a quiet room a nd were placed on the 3rd floor back. Room faces parking lot which I believe is quieter than the rooms overlooking the pool. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We are in the hotel section, not the hacienda, and found the room to be very nice. Large flat screen tv. Maybe we are not as picky as some travelers, but we found the room to be a perfectly fine size for 2 adults and a tween. In terms of distance, it is .7 miles to the plaza. We have walked back and forth multiple times on most days. We caught the shuttle in to town a couple of times. For reasoably fit people wearing walking shoes, it is a easy 10 to 15 minute walk. If you would not walk 10-15 minutes to get somewhere at home, this will probably be too far for you to walk, so plan on driving and parking, or taking the shuttle. Pro tip, there is a Whole Foods less than .5 mile in the opposite direction from town, it is huge and well stocked. We did some takeout breakfasts and dinners here when we didn't feel like eating out.

After spending a lot of time looking for a hotel in Santa Fe to spend my birthday in May I chose the Santa Fe Hacienda Hotel and Spa. I called ahead to order a flower arrangement and fruit basket for a little birthday treat.The flowers were amazing and very beautiful. We arrived a day early and were upgraded to a suite and it was very nice. Clean and comfortable, We brought our own coffee pot as I knew that they did not have one in the room. We drove from Colorado and had a cooler for day trips to Taos.The staff was very nice when we asked their advise on where to go shopping. My friends had suggested another hotel and after driving by it I am glad we chose The hacienda. It was quaint and quiet and very relaxing. I spent time at the pool and enjoyed the beautiful trees. We even used the free transportation. I would go back again to stay at this fine little hotel. There were so many places to eat that we never ate at the hotel.Maybe next time!
