Our King with Balcony and Fireplace room was lovely. We enjoyed the morning sun on the balcony and appreciated the fine furniture, furnishings and artwork in our room as well as the wonderful collection of Native American artwork throughout the hotel. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and the bathroom accessories & shower were great. It would have been nice, however, to have a second mirror over the desk in the main room for female hair & make-up prep while my husband was shaving & showering.
The young man that welcomed us at the Front Desk when we checked in was especially nice, as were most of the Front Desk staff. The wait staff in the Red Sage, Painted Parrot Buffet, Mica and theTurquoise Trail restaurants all provided excellent service and the man at the Pool Cafe was also pleasant. It was delightful dining outside by the pool which was serviced by Red Sage. Jennifer in the Turquoise Trail went out of her way to explain the menu, which she said was new, and she also enthusiastically explained the benefits of the Lightning Rewards Club
We enjoyed our round of golf at Towa Golf Club which, luckily, we completed just before that heavy storm on Monday afternoon. The golf course was beautiful & challenging but we missed having restroom, drinking water & a refreshment cart on the golf course. We also took advantage of the free shuttle bus into Santa Fe so we could spend a day there and have a lovely dinner. On our last day, we relaxed around the pool for several hours which was pleasant even though the young kids took over the pool.
All and all, we had a pleasant get-a-way. There are, however, some suggestions that we may offer to new visitors.
This hotel has two adjacent buildings and if you have a room in the secondary builiding where the spa is located, please be prepared to walk a little further to the main building where the restaurants and casino are located. As we mentioned earlier, we had a lovely room with a partial view of the golf course and were happy to walk the extra steps.
If you are staying for more than one day, please be aware that Housekeeping may not service your room until early afternoon so if you wish to have them clean your room earlier, please let them know.
One other thing ... although we managed to try all of the dining options available ... we found the options very limited. On Monday & Tuesday, the only option for dinner was Red Sage & the Red Sage Bar. Our preference would have been Mica, rather than the casino options. More outdoor dining would be great. No place to get a late night cup of java or ice cream. We also missed having free wifi in the room.
