Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder
Ranked #20 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 March 2014

My room at the spectacular Buffalo Thunder Resort just north of Santa Fe was unsurpassed in comfort, cleanliness and spaciousness. Plus the amenities I found were as nice as I'd seen anywhere across the nation. It was tastefully decorated in Southwestern theme and even offered a walk-out patio. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a beautiful setting, fine dining and a first-class golf course, spa and indoor pool to boot. We also enjoyed the casino in the evening. All in all, a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor, just nice to sit on a patio and enjoy the sunset

We stayed here for snow skiing during Spring Break. This is an excellent place to stay. The staff is exceptionally helpful. The rooms are very new and clean. The value is excellent. All kinds of amenities.
Breakfast and supper buffets are fine

We really enjoyed our time at the Hilton Buffalo Thunder Resort. It was a great long weekend getaway destination. The indoor pool was fantastic and the on-site restaurants were great and reasonably priced. We would have preferred a bit firmer beds, but they were not uncomfortable. It is about a 15 minute drive into Santa Fe which was fine for our purposes. There is also a full service gas station/Arby's restaurant at the entrance to the property which was a nice option for a family to avoid hotel/resort prices on snacks and drinks or a lighter lunch/dinner.

Stayed at this resort for five days and they were perfect days. Has a Starbucks and numerous good restaurants. Turquoise on Casino floor was our favorite (ask for server William). Family friendly, close to ski slopes and hot baths, among many other day visit sites, and beautiful décor.

My hotel stay was great; it is a great Hilton property. I love the southwest themes, the easy access to the casino, the night club, and the outdoor bar. During the day, the hotel is in proximity to other great southwest restaurants (Rancho De Chimayo, etc.), Santa Fe, the Santa Fe opera, etc. The next day, we played golf on their golf course, which is a great golf course - well managed and maintained.

This is a great Hilton property about 15 minutes from downtown Santa Fe. We enjoyed the casino and daily happy hour (great specials). We did not eat at the restaurants.
If you're going to ski, the mountain is about a 40 minute drive. We enjoyed the mountain, especially with the foot of new snow. We really enjoyed Santa Fe and would come, but might try a hotel in town.
