“Beautiful and perfect location”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We stayed at the hotel for one night in March because we were driving through NM. It is right in the heart of everything. The hotel is lovely and has a restaurant inside of the hotel. The lobby was lovely and they have daily tea and sherry for the guests at 4 p.m. The room was an adequate size and the beds were okay (not too lumpy but not super comfy either). However, we loved that the room had a fireplace in it and there was a tall wood stack by the elevator. Another plus of the rooms was that the window opened and you could look out over the pool which was so refreshing. Best part was the outdoor heated pool. So even though it was a cold night, we could enjoy the pool. Imagine our surprise when it started to snow as we swam in the pool. It made for an unforgettable night for me and my family.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the pool and during the winter ask for a room with a fireplace.

Dear malleman,

How perfect that you were able to enjoy an evening swim in the outdoor, heated pool! The snow falling does make for a magical event.

We are so happy you loved the room you stayed in and were able to make use of the extra firewood located close by.

Your comments and feedback are very much appreciated!

Husband & I stayed 4 days in Santa Fe. The real experience is to stay within the plaza of all the shops,museums, history sights, and great restaurants. Inn a Governers is located walking to all; have their own parking lot, no additional fees or valet to tip, fabulous breakfast included,pool, daily at 4pm, sherry, tea, & cookies. Guests sit arond meeting each other at this time and discuss where everyone comes from, etc. Fair pricing, rooms are the Santa Fe flavor in decor, very comfortable, & clean. We had a small adobe fire place in room, and what fun to make a fire and enjoy a glass wine. I will remember this hotel always for a pleasant experience. I highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Balcony, facing side of hotel most are fine

My daughter and I stayed at the Inn of the Governors for five nights in April. This was our first visit to Santa Fe and we booked the hotel based on reviews. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a comfortable queen room in the main building.After nine hours of travelling, we arrived around 11 a.m. and we checked in without any delays.The delicious breakfast is included in the room rate and this is a great value. In addition, the hotel restaurant, the Del Charro was quite convenient and the food was reasonably priced. We ate there several times. Another convenience is that the Inn of the Governors is a pick-up location for the Custom Tours by Clarice trolley tour.

All of the staff were pleasant and helpful. We are looking forward to staying at the Inn of the Governors when we return to Santa Fe in a few months.

Dear hcb7th,

We are so pleased you and your daughter had a wonderful stay. We very much appreciate you taking the time to review your stay.

We, too, feel that Clarice's tram tour is perfect. They pick up at the Inn four times daily during the summer months. Since the cost is so reasonable, it's a great way to see the sights easily.

We look forward to seeing you again on your upcoming trip.

We are frequent guests at this hotel and find it to be one of the best deals if you want to explore old Santa Fe. Indeed, it is not to be compared with other more "upscale hotels" in town though we have stayed at some of those and find the Inn friendlier, more comfortable and appealing than hotels twice the price. We love the complimentary sherry and cookie hour every afternoon. If you are looking for a meal the El Charro restaurant is really very good. The daily $15 voucher is a good deal as most meals are modestly priced. It is also a family oriented facility. We really enjoy this hotel. The staff are friendly and anxious to please. I became ill while staying one year and they comped us a room for an extra night so I could recuperate. What hotel does that!! It is close to all the sites in old town and a concierge is available to help you plan events or find that special restaurant to heighten your southwest experience. Lastly, we have been staying at the Inn twice a year for about 10 years. Need I say more?

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms in the main part of the hotel have fireplaces, for those romantically inclined.

This hotel is walking distance to everything in old city so if you don't want to drive, this is the place to stay. The rooms are quite large and have southwestern decor. Breakfast was included and is a standard buffet. We also had a $15 voucher to use each day and the restaurant on site is fairly good. If you have the $ to use, why not?! The place overall seems a bit dated and one would hope a renovation is on the horizon for this property. Service was fine. Nothing spectacular, nothing horrible, just an average property with a good location.

Room Tip: We had a balcony that just faced the parking lot. Not worth to pay more for this "amenity."...

As residents of southern New Mexico, we frequently visit Santa Fe and almost always stay at the Inn of the Governors. Comfortable rooms with free parking-walking distance to the plaza and Railyard Area; a full hot breakfast- the best anywhere; AND a credit to spend at the attached Del Charo restaurant/bar make each stay a bargain as well. The staff are always friendly and helpful and Krissie, bar tender extraordinaire, makes the best Cosmo on the planet.

Room Tip: Main building has a little more charm, fireplaces, etc.
