“Would stay Again”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn of the Governors. It is older and the rooms could use a little updating but we would definitely recommend this hotel.

The breakfast was magnificent and Carlos who waited on us did a marvelous job (They should consider opening 30 minutes earlier).

The bar/ restaurant was very reasonable and many of the locals also frequent the establishment. They are known for their margaritas and they will not disappoint. It is walkable to the square and we seldom used the car (free parking).

A great weekend, only one issue - our room (not in the main building) kept dropping the internet.
Front desk asked us to call their internet service, which we did - spent 45 minutes on the phone with them - but nothing changed. Internet in the main building was fine.

We enjoyed a 3 day stay during February. I didn't think the price difference ($60 per day) to upgrade to a room with a fireplace was worth it. Our room did have authentic Southwestern decorative elements, comfortable chairs for reading, a large flat screen TV, table lamps on both sides of our king size bed (great for reading in bed), and a night light so that if you had to get up during the evening you wouldn't break a toe! There were two benches for use to conveniently position your luggage. The bed itself was comfortable with plenty of pillows but our room was too close to Alameda Street and the traffic noise was irritating. If they would weatherstrip the door it would be more energy efficient and quieter. Breakfast was really tasty with numerous choices. The scrambled eggs with chiles and onions/tomatoes were particularly good. We ate once at Del Charro but were disappointed that there weren't some good Southwestern choices included - would've loved a green chile cheeseburger. Their margaritas were excellent though. The easy walk around Santa Fe from here makes it a great choice- leave your car at the hotel and explore!

Room Tip: Stay as far from Alameda street as possible - noise interrupts your sleep if you are a light sleeper...

Dear PassportTherapy,

My sincere apologies that your room was not as quiet as you would've liked! I will ask our engineering department to have a look at the balcony doors for possible improvement.

It is nice to see that the room was comfortable and functional for your needs. We are happy you enjoyed the breakfast buffet and Del Charro's Margaritas.

Please let me know if I can offer any assistance during a future stay.

There are fancier hotels in Santa Fe, but The Inn is beautifully located-just two blocks from the Plaza, and is clean, friendly, and a great deal, with a daily free hot breakfast and sherry hour. Many rooms have kiva fireplaces, which are cleaned and re-set daily. If you need more space the suites are large and handsome. The decor is traditional southwestern, and the Inn is well known for its abundant and colorful plantings.

From the minute we walked into the lobby we knew we had selected the right place. After traveling all day, starting off in a snow storm, we immediately felt relaxed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and the decor reflects the area. We could walk everywhere from museums to great restaurants and shopping. Tea and sherry at 4 pm was so relaxing and a chance to meet others and share places to see. Cannot say enough about the excellent breakfast buffet. The restaurant next door was not only handy but very good. The only negative was having to leave. A great place for a getaway with friends or family.

Room Tip: No fitness center or spa.....cannot rate...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Inn of Governors over President’s Day weekend. It was a great visit and I would definitely return the next time I’m in Santa Fe.

We had a King Room with kiva fireplace (Room 222). The room was large, comfortable and super clean. The room was nicely decorated in a southwestern theme. The fireplace was great and they provide starter pack and wood (with more available just down the hall). It was so nice to have a fire before turning in each evening. The bathroom was a bit small but fully functional with great water pressure and toiletries. Housekeeping did a fine job.

The hotel offers a free breakfast that was easily one of the best hotel breakfasts I’ve every received. Eggs, meats (bacon, sausage and ham), potatoes, and waffles. In addition, there was fruit, breads, oatmeal and yogurt. They offered a sherry hour each evening in the lobby that offered three types of sherry and cookies. The server was knowledgable and very helpful. This was a nice touch.

Other amenities included free parking (a little tight but we didn’t have trouble getting a spot), free wifi, heated pool and a really nice bar/restaurant (Del Charro). Margs were big and a great deal at $6.50.

In addition to all of the above, the hotel’s location can’t be beat. Just a couple blocks to the Plaza, the State Capital, Palace of the Governors, St. Fransis and all of the other great sights to experience in Santa Fe.

Overall, we had a fantastic stay at the Inn of the Governors and highly recommend!
