Reviewed 23 April 2014

Staff was friendly and kind. Immaculately clean room. Highly convenient location! Challenging to park but staff always out in lot to assist you to an open space. Main entrance is off of Alameda street and that is the only entrance for parking.
Always guests in the pool having fun.
Wonderful to have free breakfast with many options including hot foods (which was amazingly tasty- thank you!) and afternoon hosted sherry and tea is so thoughtful!
I asked for early check in a week before my arrival and it was immediately granted which was very convenient for this trip. Ariel and others at the front desk are prompt, courteous, and kind. You can tell they WANT to work there.
Wish I could have stayed longer- this hotel is much better than staying at a chain hotel where they are not nearly as friendly and accomodating.
Well done Inn of the Governors!

Room Tip: Rooms in the interior are quieter. We had an outside entrance room second floor close to Alameda str...

Dear Theresa D,

Thank you so much for your kind review!

I am so pleased to know that the staff, the breakfast and the sherry hour were enjoyed and made such a positive impact. Our continued goal is to offer as many extras as possible, and always with a smile.

It is very nice to see staff members mentioned by name. Thank you for remembering.

We hope to see you again soon.

In Health and prosperity,

We have stayed twice at the Inn and will definitely stay there again when we come back to Santa Fe. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the Plaza and many great places to eat, shop and explore. We traveled both times via motorcycles and love that covered parking is available and at no charge. We planned our day trips to be back at the Inn around 2-2:30 each day so that we could spend time relaxing in the heated pool and take advantage of our $15 daily credit with awesome margaritas from Del Charo! We stayed in a Deluxe room on the second floor just up the steps from the lobby. The rooms are nicely decorated in authentic southwestern style and very clean. We can't wait for our next trip to Santa Fe and The Inn of the Governors!

Dear RCR2014,

Thank you for such a thoughtful review.

We are so happy you found everything to be enjoyable during both of your stays with us. I agree that our underground parking is perfect for motorcycles. Santa Fe and the surrounding area does have so many day trips to offer our visitors. Fall is also a lovely time to tour the area on motorcycles.

We look forward to seeing you again!

In Health and prosperity,

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here. We booked a standard room with an outside entrance. We did not experience any issues. Parking was easy. We used our credits each evening at El Charro...very convenient, great food and very reasonable prices. We walked all over the area. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

On two prior trips to Santa Fe, we had stayed at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, which was nice .... but we wanted to try someplace new. The Inn of the Governors was great ... and I'd highly recommend asking for a room with a kiva fireplace. It was super easy to start, especially the first night when they had it all stoked and ready to be lit.

We had a room on the second floor in the main building ... there are severa wings. It was nice and pretty roomy, although the bath was fairly small. The hotel and room was filled with nice southwestern decor.

Plenty of food for breakfast ... buffet style. Hash towns were unexpectedly spicy ... be warned. We ate in the covered patio-style room, which was light and airy. (It has a whole bunch of overhead gas heaters for the cooler weather.)

So convenient to the historic plaza area and a hundred different cute shops. It was nice to be able to walk everywhere, particularly because the parking was a bit of a challenge at the hotel, so we didn't want to move our car once we were parked. We brought swimsuits but did not use the pool. It is pretty small and right outside the glass doors of the lobby.

Very nice overall. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a kiva fireplace.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn of the Governors in late March. The inn is very clean, in a perfect location and filled with beautiful New Mexican art. The service is first class, and the breakfast is hearty and delicious. Definitely recommend if you want to get a flavor of Santa Fe. We will be back!

Friendly staff, classic, warm Santa Fe decor and two blocks from the plaza - what's not to like? SW breakfast buffet and tea or sherry in the afternoon complete the welcoming and comfortable experience. We'll be back here each time we visit Santa Fe.
