This hotel was perfectly located for walking to so many of the key attractions: The Plaza, the State Capitol, Canyon Road, and many others. There was ample off-street parking, attractive rooms, a lovely sherry/tea hour every afternoon, and a large, delicious buffet breakfast. I would definitely go there again on a return visit!

Enjoyed our two night stay in this one-of-a-kind inn. No cookie-cutter here! Our room had a fireplace and was nicely appointed. Plenty of neatly snacked wood next to elevator for an enjoyable evening, falling asleep eventually to the crackling dying embers. So nice. Delicious dining including ample breakfast. We ate and enjoyed beverages in the Saloon which was fun, lively...

We loved it!! I guess what impressed us both the most was the attention to decor and the wonderful decorative elements which abound, in the public spaces as well as the rooms. Obvious love and care has been given to this place, making it very personal and distinctive. The label 'Inn' is well-earned. The photos posted by others say it...

We stayed at the Inn of the Governors for 3 nights and we enjoyed it. The hotel itself is kind of quaint - cozy and not anything like your typical chain hotels. The courtyard with swimming pool is very charming and we enjoyed sitting out there in the sunshine during happy hour. Our room was nice and clean and the...

3.5 stars would be appropriate in my view. Since no such ratings exist on Trip Advisor, I give it a reluctant "4", even though it is basically only slightly above average. No question they are in a good location, within easy walking distance to the Plaza and many restaurants. The free full breakfast in the morning is a good feature...

This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Santa Fe, just a couple of blocks from the historical plaza. It's architecture and room decor is very pleasing, in the style of old Santa Fe. Our receptionist, indeed all the staff we met, was friendly and helpful. Our room was not large, but very adequate for the king-sized bed. The...

Won't be staying here again. The staff upon checking in was not real friendly, no welcome. The room although adequate it was dark, it overlooked the carpark and the noise outside of some exhaust fan was deafening. It went all night long. The beds were comfortable, the linen was crisp and clean. The bathroom was very small....not much room to...

Such ambiance to this hotel. The rooms are decorated so nicely. Centrally located to walkable sites in town. The all inclusive breakfast to die for.. far from your typical continental. Also the bar restaurant exteremly affordable. We had a great stay.

We were not terribly happy the first night as the noise from the pub was a little loud in our room. We told the front desk, then went out for the day. When we came back in the afternoon they had moved our stuff to a room in the back which was very quiet, Wonderful customer service.
