In reading the other reviews, I'm not sure we were at the same place. We were here on a business trip so perhaps we were not looking for some of the things others were. We are not gamblers so we never set foot in the Casino. It was so nice to have the Casino entrance and hotel entrance totally separate so we did not have to walk through a smoke-filled area. We spent a lot of time near the meeting rooms which are near the escalators down to the Casino and never once smelled cigarette smoke anywhere in the hotel. We never saw or heard of a breakfast buffet (maybe it was in the Casino) but breakfast in the Mica restaurant was very good and arrived quickly. Lunch was good there also. Our dinners were provided for our group so we did not eat at the dinner restaurant. I was disappointed they didn't have food out at pool side, but the weather was too cool for anyone to be in the pool. Several of us sat poolside in our regular clothes and read. There was no charge for the Fitness Center while we were there. I didn't use the spa since I wasn't feeling well. We did not notice anyone who appeared to have a comped room and our floor was very quiet. However, the HVAC rooftop units outside our window were very loud.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and Nancy is the best concierge we have had anywhere! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and seemed well-maintained.
We did notice the place felt quite empty, which was nice for us. Perhaps it will pick up more once ski season arrives.
The hotel has a bus that will take you into town and then you can get to all the shopping around the plaza from there if you don't want to find a place to park. It would be nice if they had a shuttle that would take you directly to the plaza. We loved Santa Fe itself and highly recommend The Ore House restaurant on the plaza. Fantastic food!
We had a day excursion to the ruins at Bandelier that was fascinating. We enjoyed the place enough that we plan on coming back and taking some time to explore the area more.
