Hi Puter! Altho' we stayed at Inn of the Governors (http://innofthegovernors.com) for 3 nights and really enjoyed it, we fell in love with La Fonda (www.lafondasantafe.com) on the Plaza. The historic, artistic ambiance was fabulous and their interior courtyard restaurant was beautiful. For your 3 nights you could tap into their "3 for 2" special and get a queen room for what would average out to be $179--a great deal! Send me a private message if you have any questions about what to see in the Santa Fe area. I have loads of notes and would be very glad to share them. We spent 3 nights in Santa Fe, 3 in Taos and 2 in Albuquerque (last Oct.) and are more than ready to go back!
Well, Forestvillian, fancy running into you here :~).
Thank you for the recs and would love to have any advice you have on things to see. We were in Santa Fe years ago, and Taos as well, but decided to check back on our way to.....believe it or not...Texas.
(DH's first teaching job was at Rice University, a long, long time ago, and we decided to save a larger and more distant trip for spring.)
Also, thank you Santa Fe Red. The two of you have given me something to work on.
I've contacted Pam60 and have e-mailed my travel notes. Would be happy to do the same for others. Send me a private message and I'll respond.
Forestvillian sent her notes to me, as well, and they are wonderful. Should be a permanent part of the info on this forum, I think. (Yes, we are Californians, but well-traveled ones, and we might be able to give some insight for other tourists.) The California Forum has some wonderful trip reports from Brits, for example, which often surprise me with insights I had never had.
We decided on a deluxe king in the Governor's Inn and think we will be very happy. Looking forward to Santa Fe.
