We stayed here three nights. I won't waste space repeating the praise of other reviewers. I am rarely so pleased with every aspect of my experience. I will definitely return here if I am every in Santa Fe!! The staff went out of their way to extend courtesies to us at every opportunity and that made our stay smooth and worry-free. The breakfast buffet is a phenomenal value. And the $25 daily vouchers for Del Charro restaurant made our other meal so inexpensive it almost made us feel guilty. Granted, the room was a bit small, but it was charming and clean.
And the pool was lovely. The four of us sat out there one warm evening with our drinks and it was a nice change of scene.

The Inn has not let its wonderful location (2 blocks of the main square) dictate its obvious unique identity, The hotel appears to have laid down roots over many years, One can see how it has expanded into adjacent buildings and taken over a restaurant. There is a charm about this wonderful slice of Sante Fe. Some parts of the Inn are very motel like - one goes in about and around hallways and stairs and balconies. We stayed in a very simple outside room (motel like) that was comfortable, although the heat was difficult to control. I know that the more up-scaled rooms have other amenities such as Kiva fireplaces and access from the inside. The adjacent restaurant Del Chaco obviously caters to locals as well as guests for lunch, cocktails & dinner. It was a warm and friendly. The menu while limited is very reasonable, perhaps accounting for its obvious popularity.
The Inn has a unique southwestern charm that we hadn't expected. The staff was more than accommodating, The late afternoon Tea/Sherry was amusing, the breakfast first-rate. The parking was a plus.

Room Tip: We took advantage of a special promotion that allowed us a daily restaurant allowance. This added value to our stay.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in November for a long weekend get away. The hotel is easy to find, right on one of the main boulevards, about a five minute walk from the Plaza in the old town. We stayed in the 'traditional' rooms, older rooms arrayed along an outside corridor. It was a bit chilly walking outside to get to breakfast and the lobby, but the room itself was cozy. (Maybe even a bit too warm--it was hard to adjust the heat just right.)

The decor evokes old New Mexico, with lovely prints and Spanish style tiles in the small but squeaky clear bathroom. The furnishings are just a bit tired in these rooms, but we didn't come to Sante Fe to spend a lot of time in the room. Lots of freebies included in the room rate--free excellent hot buffet breakfast, free wireless internet (though signal was a bit spotty on the third floor room), free parking, and free tea and sherry every afternoon.

If I were staying in the off season again, I'd splurge for a room with a fireplace, I think. No question it's the first place I'll check next time we come to Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main part of the building are bigger with fireplaces.

Inn of the Governors offers the perfect combination of ambiance, convenience, comfort, location, good management and price in Santa Fe. We recently stayed 5 nights in a Superior King room located in the main building. The decor was authentic New Mexico, including a Kiva fireplace (additional wood was available down the hall), the bed and linens were first rate. There is a lively bar located beyond the pool and lobby which serves very fairly priced ($4-7) tasty snacks and light meals. The breakfast buffet is high-quality and comprehensive. It was an easy stroll from the hotel to everywhere we wanted to go except the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture located at Museum Hill. There is a manager's complimentary tea and sherry with biscochitos in the lobby each afternoon.
Only one minor complaint- the bathrooms are small.

This is a hidden gem. It's not as showy as some of the much higher-priced hotels near the Plaza, but the service and comfort were on par with just about any there-- at an excellent value.

Start with the location: It's two blocks from the Plaza and thus is convenient to all the shops, restaurants, museums, etc., without the noise/distraction from the heavy traffic on the Plaza. That said, West Alameda Street can get busy at times. We stayed in one of the rooms facing Ortiz St, and it was sufficiently quiet for a downtown hotel.

The room was decorated smartly, not over-decorated, with good drawer and closet space (we were there a few days so unpacking made sense). It also looked like the photographs, which isn't alwasy the case. The beds, bedding, and towels were in good condition, and the bathroom fine, as were the toiletries.

The restaurant was a nice plus. The breakfast was good, with lots of options and attentive service. We also had dinner there one night -- we know Santa Fe well, and thus know many options, and we were more than happy with the hotel restaurant.

The hotel and restaurant staff was very helpful. Parking was a little tight but we always found a spot in the fenced lot, and as mentioned, staying here means not having to re-park if you visit the Plaza area.

The overall ambience among both staff and guests was "casually friendly." I felt very much at home, and would stay here again if I return to Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Our "exterior" room facing Ortiz St, well away from West Alameda, was quiet.
