My experience with Fort Marcy Hotel Suites was very good after, as my title says, a rough start. And by rough, I mean not knowing about the after-hours check-in procedure after arriving from San Francisco at 10pm and having to stay at another hotel for the night because I could not enter my room. Thankfully, the staff was gracious, understanding, and apologetic, and I was immediately refunded for the previous night.
First off, location. Fort Marcy is not located on the main plaza and the compound is sprawled across several acres. The hotel is on a slight hill too, so you definitely you should consider renting a car if you're staying at Fort Marcy during winter. The plaza is walkable, but again, be mindful of weather conditions (it spontaneously began snowing during my stay).
My sister and I stayed in a one bedroom suite, and it was fantastic. The living area was surprisingly roomy, there was a kitchen fully stocked with cooking equipment, and the bathroom and bedroom were clean and spacious as well. For the price (~$80 a night for my stay) the one bedroom suite was well worth it! I truly felt relaxed coming back to the hotel after a day of sightseeing.
One of the main reasons why I chose Fort Marcy was for the indoor hotel/spa, which I enjoyed. The pool was cleaned and nicely size, as well as the jacuzzi. Be aware, it's only open until 7pm. I really wish it were open later, but for security reasons they lock it up once the front desk staff leaves work for the day. I hope one day they can stay open for a bit later in the night...it's an indoor pool, after all. :)
I really enjoyed this hotel. If you're booking through a hotel reservation website, you may not receive information about how to check-in after hours, so definitely call Fort Marcy ahead of time if you plan on arriving after 7pm. If you're visiting Santa Fe, definitely keep Fort Marcy in mind. You'll get great value for your money, have a comfortable space to turned into after a long day, and be situated a drive away from the city's shops, museums, and major highways for any road trips.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Perched atop a hill near the site of the original Fort Marcy from which the property took its name, the modern Fort Marcy provides guests with panoramic views of Santa Fe, the outlying deserts, and the distant Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Fort Marcy's 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites are spread throughout twelve different adobe buildings which sit on nine acres of natural and landscaped desert grounds. Stroll through meandering paths among shade trees, blooming cactus, and manicured gardens. Or return to your suite's fully furnished kitchen, separate living area, authentic kiva fireplace, or private balcony to enjoy the desert air or a famous Southwest sunset.
Of course, Santa Fe's historic downtown lies just blocks away - home to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, the Mercado, Galleria, and Sena Plazas, the San Miguel Mission, and an endless number of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. For the Santa Fe getaway that's the ideal blend of luxury, convenience, and beauty, Fort Marcy may just be vacation perfection.... more less
