“Great Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This is a very lovely hotel. It reminded us of a small European hotel. Rooms were very cozy. The location is great because you are only a few blocks from the Plaza, but in a quiet neighborhood so you don't have all the traffic and noise. The piano bar was an especially nice treat. The 2 performers were very talented and entertaining. Breakfast is continental, but very filling.

Room Tip: Not sure of what rooms to recommend, but they are all on the ground level. We stayed in the Atalaya...

This B&B was only three blocks away from the Plaza. We stayed for 4 nights and had a relaxing stay. Enjoyed a nice complimentary breakfast and enjoyed some very good piano bar type entertainment with Doug Montgomery. Parking is tough, but where isn't it in the Plaza area. We had a parking spot at the Inn each night, only difficulty was remembering where the driveway was.

We had a great experience from start to finish. We had never been to Santa Fe and the man who helped with our reservation to the time to describe each room available to fine the perfect fit. Room 8 was perfect. Romantic, quiet, perfectly appointed, beams in the ceilings and an incredibly comfortable bed. The inn keeper was helpful in giving sightseeing advice and then escorted us to our room and showed us the amenities of the property. Breakfast was perfect and we were greeted at the door and asked for our egg order which arrived quickly and was delicious. Great location with a short walk to everyplace downtown. Excellent stay.

We have enjoyed staying at the Inn at Vanessie over the years. When we drive down to Santa Fe from our home in Taos, we know that we will be greeted in a friendly and accomodating manner by a wonderful young woman, Mary Ann who seems to be able to do it all!. The rooms are lovely , beautifully (tasteful) and roomy for the price and very clean. The beds and linens are divine. I would recommend some minor repairs in the bathrooms. There was some difficulty in getting hot water. We stayed in Tuseque Room and the bed was located so it was not possible to watch TV in bed, if one should choose to do so. The plus is the wonderful included breakfast in a lovely dining room. Again my hat is off for Mary Ann who works so hard at making her visitors comfortable. Sarah Wilder

There were 3 in our group and we stayed 3 nights at the Inn at Vanessie. This is a beautiful inn. We chose the "Executive Suite" which was amazing. Huge suite with large living room/dining area with 2 wide, large couches (could easily sleep on them), large coffee table,, TV, sink, small refrig, coffee maker, large outdoor porch, large master bedroom with ensuite beautiful master bath, beautiful hall half bathroom and a back room that is not a full second bedroom "room" with a door, but in the back and off the main hallway enough that it provides plenty of privacy. This area has a day bed with trundle and a nice sized closet. Plenty of room for 3 people and could have handled more (on the couches!). The rooms are large and feel even larger with high beamed ceilings. It is beautifully decorated in a Southwestern style. The innkeeper is friendly and also runs the restaurant- if no one is in the office, just go to the restaurant and they are all able to help out.

NOTE about the location: The location is at the far end of the central part of Santa Fe and a few blocks off the main streets. It is a short walk to the plaza and everything you'd want to see or do, and very pleasant during the day. At night, my group of 3 women felt a bit nervous walking to the inn from the plaza by ourselves at 10 PM. It seemed pretty isolated and not many people were out and about. However, we just drove up to the plaza at night time from then on - once we figured this out, it wasn't a problem. The on street parking is free, and easily available at night.

Room Tip: The executive suite (#6) is very large and beautiful.

The hotel that we normally stay at was booked so we tool a chance on Vanessie. This is a great place. The staff couldn't be nicer. The rooms are a nice size and nicely furnished. Breakfast was very good. We'll be back
