Excellent property in downtown Santa Fe. Décor perfectly complements the architecture of Santa Fe and the local culture. Rooms are spotless and tastefully decorated with art that extends the southwester theme. Fixtures are older but very attractive and work just fine (e.g., the shower is still in a tub rather than what you now find in newer properties where the tub has been removed for a larger shower). Friendly staff and attentive staff. Good hotel food. There are many other amenities that I didn’t use (I was there for business), including a spa, all of which look very nice. Very reasonably priced for an upscale hotel.
Pros: Downtown location, attractive décor, friendly staff, good food, reasonable price!

Beautiful property that makes you feel like you are in fairy tale garden. The room (we stayed in the Shaman room) was very nice, spacious, yet very cozy. The location of the Inn is very convenient as it as only a 5 minute walk to the historical plaza. Breakfast was exceptional every day! The service was top notch and staff were very friendly and accommodating! We are definitely coming back.
This Inn is historic and beautifully maintained property. It says it’s a b&b but this is really a lovely, cozy hotel with a marvelous innkeeper and excellent service and staff. The breakfast is fabulous and makes you want to get up and see what yummy specials they have that day!
I used to stay at a rather fancy, double the price hotel and no longer as this is too wonderful an experience!
Staying in one of their three large rooms/suites actually. Georgie O’Keefe room with fireplace.
The renovations are authentic; we stayed in the carriage house, and the wall stucco was speckled with pieces of hay artfully embedded in the material. Decorations and furniture ,were lovely and unobtrusive, complementing the winding architectural lines of the house. The front sitting room, dining room, and office are all tastefully decorated without overdoing it. We were there mid-November, and the farolitos were lit each night, making an enchanting winter memory for me, when we students would make farolitos with actual brown bags, sand, and candles.
We stayed in The Shaman Room – and it was like stepping into a set. Beautiful old bricks on the floor, highly polished from use, comfortable bed, antique-style furnishings, books, a working fireplace, plus deep-set windows and courtyard seating areas. We arrived in the evening so experienced the spectacle of luminarias lining the tops of all the enclosing walls and lining the roof.
The Food. Wow. Wonderful hearty breakfast variety, available in a beautiful dining room with a polished-wood communal table.
All the furnishings resonate with various New Mexico themes, and the entire dining area & shared sitting room are warm, rich, and cozy.
The Company. We enjoyed talking with fellow guests over a couple of leisurely breakfasts. Fascinating travelers in this setting gives one of the feel of travel as it must have been in the days of trains and carriages. We had a marvelous time.

I can’t wait to go back to Santa Fe when I can spend some more time and I will certainly be staying at this hotel next time as well!
It is within walking distance (about 2 blocks) to the Plaza, it is a small,charming, unique, historic, adobe boutique hotel. Each room is different which I really like rather than staying in a typical, cookie cutter style hotel. (I have stayed in many of the rooms and have enjoyed them all).
The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated in authentic Santa Fe style.
The beds are very comfortable. I LOVE that they have working kiva fireplaces. I enter the room after a long day on the road and just feel “ahhhh” and immediately relax.
The dining room/piano bar is a classy place to relax and enjoy a meal. And I really enjoy sitting in the lovely breakfast room in the morning and the food that is served is very good.
