Hotel St. Francis
Ranked #28 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Although we are "locals" (an hour away from Santa Fe), my husband and I try to spend each birthday every year at the St. Francis for a mini-vacation. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the bartender is the most creative in town, our dog LOVES to stay with us here, and the location can't be beat for walking everywhere downtown. It is warm and cozy by the fireplace in winter, and cool and breezy on the portale in the spring. Sure, the rooms are a little small, but the beds are divine and who wants to spend a bunch of time in a hotel room anyway?

Room Tip: If you're bringing your dog, ask for an upgrade to the mezzanine rooms for pet owners -- they ar...

The oldest hotel in Santa Fe...beautiful! Some rooms are small. We had a standard King which was fine. The common areas are warm and welcoming. Sat near the fireplace one night. The bar is cool, drinks pricey but the place is pretty sweet. The restaurant is outstanding. A previous reviewer mentioned that it is owned by a separate party than the hotel, so dinner cannot be charged to room. And this is a problem why? Really?

Anyway, incredible location in a really cool town, good value, everyone was nice and accommodating...Jeremy, Alda, Ben...everyone!

I thought I got a great deal on a room thru Hotel Tonite. I suspect we were given the smallest room on the hotel for $95. It was a corner room that was really ok since it was just 2 of us and we weren't spending a lot of time there anyway. However, we did have to laugh at how small the berth room was. I've literally never seen a hotel bathroom that small even in Europe! How small was it?! It was so small that when showering, it created a kind of convection with the shower curtain pulling it into the shower and sticking to me. I couldn't help but wonder how many bodies that curtain had been up against. Overall, nice hotel though. Clean with comfortable bed and nice linens. Young lady at check-in was very nice and personable. Went to the nice hotel bar at happy hour. Amazing cocktails served by a young lady bartender with a poor attitude. We decided to stay for 2nd drink since there was a shift change!

We visited Hotel St. Francis through a Living Social coupon offer. We love Santa Fe and so we signed up for the voucher immediately. It turned out to be a very good decision. We enjoy experiencing the history of the places we visit and so this hotel was a great choice. It was evident that there has been some restoration and renovation at the hotel, but it was done very tastefully, preserving the historic aspects of the building as much as possible while adding updates that added to the comfort of the guests. Sometimes when we use a coupon for a visit, the room assignment is one of the least desirable rooms. We were completely satisfied with our room - very nicely furnished, comfortable and quiet. The front desk receptionist, Lauren, was very helpful and patient during our check in - we had driven from Phoenix and were tired and probably not at our best humor. She made us feel comfortable and welcome. The only thing that would have made the experience better was if the hotel accepted a paperless voucher confirmation, as is recommended by Living Social. It took an extra 20 minutes for check in to go to the business center, upgrade the browser software so I could access my Gmail account, and print out the voucher. This could have been easily avoided if I could have brought up my voucher on my phone and have the staff verify and/or scan the confirmation tag.

I visited Santa Fe and stayed at the Hotel St. Francis. The hotel is very clean and well kept. You can tell they take pride in the service they provide and it's reflected in the staff and their interaction with guests. This hotel Is quite old but clean and unique. I love the look of the lobby and the historic pictures that are displayed in the lobbys of each floor. I was quite comfortable in the room and the bed was quite clean and comfortable. Slept like a baby. I would recommend it on your trip to Santa Fe. The Secreto Bar is also very nice. I like the patio that is provided in the front of the hotel, nice place to relax but yet take in some fresh air and scenery. I had a great time!

Room Tip: I stayed in a queen room. It's perfect for a solo or a couple. So cozy!

This hotel is located just a block off the plaza...VERY convenient!!! It's an classic old building with small-ish but nice rooms. They have parking available next to the hotel for $11.00 per night.
Abigail at the reception desk did a great job of getting me and my folks checked in and was very kind and helpful with finding an appropriate room for my folks who are in their 80's. Thank you!

On a girls weekend get away, I stayed here with 2 fellow co-workers last weekend. The hotel is wonderful. It's beautiful and clean. The lobby is very beautiful with lots of places to sit (inside or outside) and watch the people, or just sit back and read a good book by the fire. Rooms are small but nice furnished with antiques and treasures. The bed was wonderful and we had everything needed, with plenty of hot water even. Even the floor squeaked when you walked in the room. As far as size, how long do you spend in your bedroom anyway...change, shower and sleep...the public areas are beautiful and you really do want to spend time there. Secreto's bar and Loggia is lively and fun. It's right in the middle of Santa Fe, walking distance to anywhere you might want to go. Prices were great. We could have paid double and not had better accommodations. We will be back.
