Residence Inn Santa Fe
Ranked #37 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Reviewed 2 December 2011

Nice hotel, nothing special. Good location and friendly staff. Happy hour in the evening is just M-W from 5-6:30pm, should be a bit longer if you ask me. Breakfast very basic, not much to it.

Rooms not very modern, furniture a bit old. I did experience A LOT of static electricity when I went to bed... my hair was standing up, not sure what that was all about... but it was too late to call down to front desk and change rooms.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Until this trip my experience with Mariott properties had always been really positive. The room was incredibly out dated and in poor condition. 25 year old kitchen, noisy refrigerator that sounded like a broken fan when the compressor kicked on in the middle of the night, cabinet doors that didn't close, shower that didn't drain, sink that didn't drain, etc. TVs and furniture was old and obsolete and should be replaced.
The location was great and it is great that pets are allowed, but that would not be enough to have me return before it is entirely refurbished.

This property is a very average property. This property should be updated and the beds should be improved to real Marriott beds. The food is not good at all. The coffee should be improved.

When we travel to Santa Fe each summer to see the Santa Fe Opera and attend the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, we have usually stayed at a hotel on Cerillos Road. This year, we learned of terrible construction which would make our commutes a challenge as they did two years ago when the first construction phase began. Since we had a most enjoyable stay at a Residence Inn in Tucson recently, we chose the Residence in off of St. Michael's which was not only convenient, but much roomier than our previous Cerillos hotel.

The complementary breakfast is boilerplate (same as all hotels who offer the amenity), but the food is presently nicely and is constantly refilled. Depending on the bookings at the hotel, finding a seat at breakfast can be a challenge.

The rooms are much bigger than expected. The bed was comfortable. Depending on your room location, parking can be a challenge.

You never know when your room is going to be made. A call to Housekeeping may be your best bet. There are signs which you are told to post, but in most cases for us (we stayed there twice over a 3 week period) the signs meant little.

We swam once, and were concerned about security, because a large familiy (10 at least) arrived (they clearl were not guests... maybe family members of a staff person) and monopolized the pool and spa. They left an infant out in the sun and rarely showed any attention to the baby who screamed constantly from the heat and need of attention. Finally, they brought over a bottle of water and gave it to the screaming baby.

In sum, I feel that this is a good choice for any number of reasons. The rooms are dark. Our home is full of light..... Bottom line.... there's no place like home.... but this place will fill the job on the road.

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room with convenient parking.

i stayed here n a business trip and it was great.... Breakfast was good and the social they had 3 days a week was just what I needed. Hotel was kept clean and is up to date. I will stay there again when I visit Sante Fe in a few months....

I am a platinum member at Marriott. They may not be the best value but they are consistently nice and clean. Until my stay at the Santa Fe Residence Inn, it had been a long time since I have been disappointed in a Marriott property. I found the rooms very dated; linoleum coming up in the bathroom, hard to regulate the water, noisy air conditioning and fan and dust build up on the carpeting and in the corners. The next day we left our room at 9AM and returned at 9:30PM to find the temperature on our room at over 80 degrees. The air conditioning unit froze; which we were made to feel it was our fault because the setting was too low; even though a housekeeping was in our room that day. We were told to run the fan for 2 or 3 hours without the A/C on and that would thaw things out. I told the front desk this was unacceptable and we were issued a new room. The only person to apologize was the very nice maintenance person. So we had to pack up five people and move to another room at 10:00 PM. Santa Fe was lovely, but find some other place to stay.

This is one of the most dated, sad hotel rooms I've stayed in, and it was definitely much more expensive than it should have been. The property is somewhat removed from good restaurants, galleries, etc in Santa Fe- you'll want to drive everywhere. The hot tub near our room was empty, and there were work crews there all three days (Fri, Sat, Sun), loudly fixing up the buildings.

Our room itself was definitely not that big - the smallest Residence Inn room I've had. The kitchen was pathetic - ancient microwave, beat up refrigerator, dinged up counters. The bathroom was about the same - gross wallpaper, peeling off trim. And the carpet - ugly and old throughout. Old boxy, big TV. The bed was decently comfortable, and the air conditioning was the best part.

I definitely would not stay here again, and wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
