“Charming old building and updated rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

We visited this hotel during the Thanksgiving holiday 2012. We found it to be very charming and comfortable. The room prices were very reasonable considering it was just one block off the square. Very convenient. The rooms are well appointed and clean. There is a lot of "stair climbing" unless your room was close to the one elevator. (ours was) I highly recommend this hotel.

Hello SailRaiser,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am happy you were able to enjoy the thanksgiving holiday with us. Being in Santa Fe during that time of year is really a one-of-a-kind experience. Our spacious rooms and convenient location seemed to make your stay extra special. As our building is historic, some of the rooms do require stairs, but please know we can help with luggage throughout your stay. But I am happy that you were able to get a nice room off the elevator.

Have a wonderful new year and we look forward to seeing you for future stays.

A nice renovation of an older hotel, centrally located to all sights in lovely Santa Fe. Very friendly front desk, one of the agents offered to carry our bags, even as he was leaving his shift. Convenient underground parking garage, $14 a day. Room was large and quiet, very nice, comfortable bed and linens. Bath was small, but renovated and more than adequate, Subdued, tasteful Southwest decor, no kokopellis here. Hotel has an interesting layout, some of the rooms are located off an outside balcony, which does not face onto a street. Lots of Santa Fe atmosphere.

There is a very pleasant looking bar, located just off the lobby.

Room Tip: We had a room off the outdoor balcony, on the 3rd floor, accessible by elevator, which was very quie...

Thank you for taking the time to write such kind words foodiefromCO,

I am pleased that our staff went above and beyond during your stay. It sounds like our spacious design and location made your rest that much more enjoyable. You noticed our unique decor which is inspired by the city and people of Chimayo. It is our mission to represent that town and its local flavor.
We hope to see you again in the future. Our proximity to shopping and galleries is that much more wonderful in the warmer months--maybe we will see you then.

Jay from the Hotel and John and Haley from Lown N' Slow Bar were so attentive and nice.
Drinks were perfect and the frito pies are the best in Santa Fe.
Jay hooked us up with a nice room with a wood burning kiva fireplace and a bottle of wine which was so perfect on a cold winter night. We will definitely go back for another good time. Keep up the gr8 service!

Room Tip: Recommend a room with a Kiva fireplace, so cozy and romantic!

Thank you Stevoroni for your 5-Star review,

Your trip sounded enjoyable, and I am very pleased our staff members were able to make it a memorable one. Having a wood burning fireplace in select rooms does add that special something on these brisk Northern New Mexico nights.
We hope to see you again in the warmer months so that you can enjoy your wine in our interior courtyard. That experience is just as wonderful and we love to see our previous guests return. Have a wonderful February!

I am a local and enjoy staying downtown every now and then. Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe is my favorite place. From Jay at the front desk who is always smiling and anxious to accommodate every need to Haley and John in the lounge that always make me feel at home and safe when mixing up the fun flavorful cocktails! Thank you all for always making it such a GREAT experience.

Room Tip: Junior Suite, fireplace softest beds in the world!

Thank you Freddie Sue G for this outstanding review!

I sounds like Jay, Haley and John were able to make your stay an enjoyable one. Low N' Slow is truly an amazing bar and one of the hidden gems here in Santa Fe. We hope that we will see you in future and please give us a call directly the next time you choose to stay downtown. We love to welcome back repeat guests!

Great place. Staff was as nice as they were professional. Rooms were amazing. Mixed drinks at the bar were fantastic. Even though we live in New Mexico already, the atmosphere made it feel like a faraway get away because the hotel was the perfect wedding of resort and native culture. I hope to stay again soon.

Thank you for posting this very generous 5-Star review Drew A,

I'm glad you enjoyed the mixed cocktails at Low N' Slow. Since you live in New Mexico, maybe you can stop by again for another drink if you are passing through. And on the next visit, please sample our fabulous menu at Tia's Cocina. I promise we won't disappoint when it comes to the Chimayo-inspired flavors. They go perfectly with the drinks!
Give us a call the next time you are traveling to Santa Fe, and we will assist you in making the trip unforgettable again.

Beautiful accommodations just steps from the plaza, fine dining and shopping. Loved the decor from local artists; so many thoughtful touches went into this boutique hotel. It felt like the "true" Santa Fe experience. I can't wait to stay there again.

I appreciate you taking the time you write this generous 5-star review,

I am so pleased you enjoyed our proximity to the plaza. And you noticed how our hotel reflects the spirit and culture of the people of Chimayo. Our hotel is a representation of the small village 30 minutes north of us. The decor in our rooms and lobby has been inspired by their unique flavor here in the northern New Mexico. We are flattered that you have termed us "true." That couldn't be better compliment.

Please let us know when you plan on returning and we will be more than happy to welcome you back. We hope you have an amazing 2013.

My husband, our two teenage sons, brother and my husband's sister all rendezvoused at Hotel Chimayo for two nights after Christmas and then back again for New Years Eve. Though we've been to Santa Fe on several occasions we had never stayed at Hotel Chimayo. I chose it after reading various reviews. The location is excellent just half a block from the square. Very easy to walk everywhere. The accommodations were perfect for us with my husband and me in the mission junior suite and our sons in the room above us. The internal door was unlocked so we could get to the boys' room without going outside. My brother and sister in law were also very please with their rooms. Loved the fire in the kiva. We all remarked on how great the mattresses are (which is certainly not always the case in hotels) as well as loads of pillows. Staff was friendly and attentive. We will return to Hotel Chimayo on our next visit to Santa Fe!

Dear cadodabe,

I know that you and your family had a wonderful time because I saw how much fun you were having! It was truly an honor to have you and your in-laws with us during the holiday season and I know we will see you again. The family suite seemed like it was made for your party. I am glad it worked out so well.

Please let me know when all of you, or just some of you, would like to visit us again. I will make sure you have an amazing time. Have a great start to the new year!
