"Great value for Money"

After two nights here, I would love to have stayed longer. This charming hotel is great value for money, has excellent staff, is located within walking distance of the main sights and offers both a great breakfast buffet as part of the room price and generous Margaritas in the popular bar.

When I arrived in the evening – unfortunately missing the free sherry or tea served daily 4-5 pm – there was plenty of room to park, the exterior balconies that lead to the rooms were lined with swathes of flowers and my room itself (308, a corner) was spacious with a good bathroom area, hidden fridge, large TV and lots of nice details.

The hotel decor is classic traditional New Mexico with lots of colourful hangings and furnishings, exposed timbers and well maintained plants. The small pool has space to also lie down and relax. The Del Charro bar-café is partly in a patio and has good local fare (some local restaurants are expensive) for lunch and dinner. At the bar, a nice detail is how the cocktail shaker with your margarita is left beside your filled glass for refills at the price of one drink.

The breakfasts, included in the very reasonable prices of the rooms, can be a major meal if you feast from the extensive buffet which includes New Mexico chiles, tacos, spicy scrambled eggs and all sorts of goodies.

The hotel will arrange a morning tour of Santa Fe that departs from the hotel. It takes in the major city sights including the must-see Canyon Road concentration of art studios and galleries that help make Santa Fe the number three art outlet in the US after New York and LA. The native Indians also sell jewelry etc in the main plaza in the colonnade in front of the Governor’s House Museum.

"The place we recommend to all our friends"

We spent a lovely weekend playing tourist in our own town. It was so enjoyable to go to the museums, shops and restaurants that we normally don’t visit since we live in Santa Fe. The time was even more lovely since we were able to stay at the Inn of the Governors for the first. After this stay, it has become the place we recommend to all our friends that are coming to visit us.

"It was our Home away from Home"

There are so many memories of our visits to the Inn of The Governors that it is hard to choose just one. Whether it was a stop over, on our way to in El Paso or making a special trek with, my Grandmother, from El Paso to Santa Fe, it was our Refuge from the chaos of everyday life. It was our Home away from Home and we were always greeted by your staff like close friends. Some of our fondest memories is having your Mountain Sunrise Breakfast on your garden patio. Listening to the birds sing as they fluttered about the ivy. Another fond memory is swim in your pool either in the dead of winter or soaking in it after a long day of galavanting through out Santa fe area. We were always refreshed after our visit.
