Bishops Lodge is a beautiful place to visit. It is far enough from the city to feel like you have truly escaped. But it is a very short drive to the wonderful plaza and all the galleries that make Santa Fe special. I would like to give a warning all those people who book online. I booked the room through Priceline and the room that we got was certainly not what was described on line. The room was clean but it was tiny. My husband and I were constantly running into each other and we both couldn't fit into the bathroom. The walls are paper thin. Our room was in the older area of the lodge but we did have a patio, which I thought was going to be great. That was until I sat out on it and all I could smell were the horse stables which were right below our room. We had called ahead and asked for a room with a view because we were celebrating our anniversary so when we didn't get it I just figured it was the best they had so I didn't complain or request a move. Upon check out I nicely told the girl working of my concerns about the tiny room and the smell and she told me that I could have requested a move. I told her we made a request before we arrived so I didn't think it would have helped. She then looked at record and saw that we booked throught Priceline, she then basically told me that the rooms like ours were for those who booked "discount rooms". I say this to warn those who book on line and not directly throught their site. You will be booked into a room that isn't what is you expect, you will be in a two star room not a three.
All in all our stay was very nice, we had expected more but we didn't go to Santa Fe to stay in our room or sit around the lodge all day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In August of 1851, a Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Lamy, arrived in the NM Territory as the first Bishop of Santa Fe. Here he built a private retreat; his chapel still stands today, now on the national register of historic places. After Lamy's Death, the land was acquired by the Pulitzer publishing family as a private vacation retreat. In 1917, the Thorpe family from Denver fell in love with these pristine acres, bought the property and developed the first resort in the state. Today Bishop's Lodge comprises 15 lodges for a total of 110 rooms ranging in sizes from 250 sq feet to 450, not to mention a 2000 sq foot Presidential Suite. Many of our rooms feature fireplaces and the majority all have outdoor access to patios, lawns or balconies. Our ShaNah Spa and Wellness Center which opened up in June of 2002 is a sanctuary where one can take time out to be nurtured by Mother Nature, guided by ancient wisdon and touched by angels. The experience may change your life. Other activities are abundant such as: trap/skeet shooting (offered to groups of 10 or monmre roomnights), horseback, pony trail rides, hiking, mountain biking, fitness center, excercise studio, outdoor pool, whirlpool and tennis to mention a few. Bishop's Lodge is located just 3 miles from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. Complimentary shuttle service is provided by the lodge at scheduled times daily. ... more less
