Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2012

First time in Santa Fe. This was an ideal place to stay in close proximity to the old town area which is full of good restaurants, hot chocolate bars and numerous art galleries. Comfortable rooms and very helpful staff including Amanda at the front desk. Plan to return to this hotel!

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and just love it!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a fireplace, be sure to ask for one if that is important to you.

I stayed two nights in February with my two teenagers. We just loved this hotel. The location is fabulous, and our suite was very attractive, clean and comfortable. I loved the Southwestern decor, especially the handmade crosses hanging over the fire place. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room. The hotel will send someone to light it for you, as long as you call before 10:30 pm. All the rooms look out onto a central courtyard. There are tables and chairs outside your door, so you can sit and enjoy your coffee or drinks, etc. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Parking underground is at an additional charge, but very convenient. There is a refrigerator and coffe maker in the room. The bathroom area is small, but the living room and bedroom are large. During our stay, we ate in both the Low Rider bar area, and upstairs in the dining room. At check in we were given a coupon for a free appitizer with meal purchase. The food was very good and the waite staff very friendly. I especially liked that the hotel donates part of your room rate to the Chimayo Cultural Preservation Association. We would definitely stay there again

I have been staying at the Hotel Chimayo Since 2004 when it was the Hotel Plaza Real.

I originally went to Santa Fe on a business trip and return several times a year, for the past eight years on holidays. I always stay at the Chimayo regardless.

The front desk are helpful, friendly and professional. They always greet me with a genuine smile.
The rooms are exceptionally clean and well kept and the view from the upper courtyard is very lovely.
The hotel itself is in the perfect location off the Plaza and the cost is extremely reasonable for the location. You are literally a stones throw from the Plaza.
They have recently opened up the restaurant on the second level. This was an added pleasure. The food is wonderful and the staff are fantastic.
The Chimayo is a home away from home for me. I cannot write enough positive remarks. Each and every stay is a pleasure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace.

We've always loved staying in Santa Fe, but this plaza- and Canyon Road- convenient hotel ranks with the best.
Great room; large, with a wood fire in the fireplace each night;
Good amenities, including the on-site retaurant (Tia's Cocina);
Close to everything.
We'll visit again.
