Historical Traveller Reviews of Inn and Spa at Loretto Hotel

Greatly overrated

from mgwt
Old can be quaint or old can be tired. This hotel is the latter. The exterior is lovely, the inside not so much. The room was in disrepair and dirty, and very dark. The carpet is disgusting. The new bathroom fixtures were nice, but the sink faucet leaked all over the place. Maybe the location demands $300 per night, but lesser priced hotels in the area could not possibly be worse. The spa, however, is nice and the treatments very good. If the hotel rooms were as nice as the spa rooms, it would go a long way. Stay somewhere nicer, or save your money.

Great location

from colesloough
Nice hotel. Historic and old. Restaurant very good.
Beds close to room doors, so you hear hallway noise.
Workout room outside main building. Pretty decent. Heated pool.
On site restaurant very good and pricey.

Great Location, but beware of construction

from Bonanza37V
We stayed at the hotel during Easter weekend. There was room at the last minute and I should have wondered why. They told me there was construction, but I didn't realize they meant it would be right on my floor. Dust and paint fumes wafted into my room whenever I ventured out. For 2 days a broken lamp stayed in a box on my floor. It made me feel like no one from management cared about the second floor.

The best part of the hotel is the first floor which is beautiful. It went downhill after that; we got to our VISTA room, a smallish room with deep red walls without anything to break up the heavy color--no paintings or mirrors. The view through the shared balcony is more to the top of the other roofs than anything else so we only went out once. It felt cramped--strange for a balcony with a mountain view.

Good news: linens were nice and comfortable and the location is excellent!

NOTE to people with kids: We were told the pool is kept at 80 degrees year round. Way too cold for kids, other than summer.

cutest hotel in true sante fe tradition, loved it, go back tomorrow

Watch out for surprise charges

from Jcw811
This was a very well located, established hotel in Santa Fe, and we were pleased to be booked through Priceline. The room had just been redone, was extremely comfortable--with a lot of attention to linens, towels, etc. We spent extra time in the room because it was such a pleasant part of our trip. However, I was taken aback by their pricing practices. I expect my Priceline purchase (not inexpensive in off-season) to cover everything except incidentals. When I checked in we were informed for the first time of a $16.00/day fee for car parking (high, but really OK) and a $10.00/day fee for hotel services which were described as internet, the pool (it was near freezing) and the excercise room. I stay at a variety of hotels and I consider these part of the price of the room. The clerk checking me in also volunteered this was part of housekeeping's gratuity. When I asked for specifics so I would know how much I needed to leave, the response was vague: "some of it, not all of it" I also was required to sign a statement saying on weekdays a paper would be delivered, but I could decline it and get .75 reduction in bill. I declined it, did not receive a paper, and did not receive the reduction either. We're not minibar users often, but the $4.50 for a bottle of water did catch our notice! The $10 fee was not much compared to the price of the room, but I thought its charging was deceptive, just a way of getting around our Priceline agreement, and really when you are standing there checking in, what option do you have? My advise: caveat emptor! (buyer beware)

Great Place to Call Home while in Santa Fe

from OhioKaren
I have stayed at the Inn and Spa at Loretto several times and absolutely love it. The staff is wonderful, remembering me whenever I return. They always treat me special and make a point to ensure that all of my needs are met.

The Inn is warm and inviting. I instantly feel at home when I walk through the doors and see that wonderful Living Room with its roaring fire and comfortable chairs and couches. I have stayed in several different rooms and all are unique in their style - which is really neat, particularly when you are there for an extended stay. The uniqueness of the rooms makes you feel like you are in a warm, comfortable home rather than in a "cookie-cutter" hotel room. The best part of the room is the bed - talk about "heaven" - wow; it is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. From the mattress to the pillows to the comforter - it is all perfect!

Speaking of perfect - the Spa is just that. The rooms are some of the nicest treatment rooms I have ever been in. They are large, warm, candlelit - and each has its own bathroom for changing and refreshing up. No locker room - just your own personal space. How nice! I highly recommend the Signature Facial and Heavenly High Altitude massage. I loved that both treatments featured homemade products and scents that are unique to Santa Fe. The decor and magical atmosphere of the Spa made me never want to leave it.

I ate many meals at the restaurant at Loretto and was lucky enough to meet Chef Brian. He is so passionate about his food and sincerely wants all of his guests to experience the freshest, most authentic tastes that represent the Santa Fe region. While downtown Santa Fe has many dining options, I found my meals at the Inn's restaurant to be some of the best.

The Inn at Loretto is located in the heart of the city - only a short stroll away from the Plaza and Canyon road. You can walk everywhere. I really enjoy my time in Santa Fe - with the shops, great historical sightseeing and the Inn and Spa at Loretto. I highly recommend this Inn for everyone!

I was in Santa Fe for a lengthy business trip. The hotel was conveniently located downtown on the Plaza and near the state capitol. The staff was friendly and my room, while somewhat dated, was very clean and comfortable. I REALLY enjoyed the spa ( be sure to ask for Lyndsay) and the dining room offered some of the best cuisine in town. Check out the spiral stairs in the Loretto Chapel, and beware Sister George, a haunting visitor at the hotel. B-fed can explain. I learned that the hotel is remodeling during the early months of 2008 and cannot wait to return during the summer festival season to the all "new" Loretto.

Lovely hotel, Great location

from Kondan
The Inn & Spa at Loretto is nice hotel close to the Santa Fe plaza. This was our second stay and again the hotel room was large and comfortable, the staff were all friendly and the price was reasonable.

This pueblo-style hotel has a tasteful lobby and some very nice shops. I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone who wants a pleasant hotel in a wonderful location in Santa Fe.

Enjoyed our stay

from cookieintx
I went with my two girlfriends to Santa Fe to celebrate her 40th Birthday. We chose the Inn & Spa at Loretto as our hotel. The website photos have accurate depictions.

We stayed in a Pueblo room with a slight view of the mountains.
The room was nice and served our needs well. We had 2 double beds so two of us had to bunk together but it was fine.

We also enjoyed the Spa at Loretto with Balinese massage treatments for each of us.

Overall this was a lovely hotel but not worth $200+ per night. Fortunately, we booked a special seasonal rate.

MINIMAL DRAWBACKS:
Since our flight arrived quite early, we could not check in until later that afternoon, so we walked around and had lunch. We wanted to freshen up a bit before our spa treatment and the room still wasn't ready. I think it would have been nice for the front desk to contact housekeeping to see if they could possibly have our "blocked" room attended to since we did walk around for several hours and were tired. Overall, we got into our room eventually.

Also having never been to Santa Fe, it would have been helpful for the front desk clerk to tell us about the various restaurants that required reservations or booked up early for dinner. We tried to have dinner at Coyote Cafe as a walk-in and were politely told that they wouldn't have a table ready until several hours later.

Places to Dine: Honestly, we never had a bad meal. The food in Santa Fe was remarkable.

Breakfast -
Cafe Pasqual's - Expect to wait but the food was good. Some tables are family style but we sat with very nice strangers. Loved it.

Plaza Cafe? - This was a diner type restaurant next to The Ore House....This was a wonderful place for breakfast. I actually liked it better than Pasqual's.

Lunch -
The Shed - Good food. I saw lots of people drinking the margarita. We had the hot coffee with baileys.


Dinner -
The Sleeping Dog Tavern - OMG!!! The best hamburger (kobe) I've ever had in my life. You can see the kitchen from a little window from the street view sidewalk...we stared at them making a burger and immediately decided to eat there. Good martini's too. Seriously people, I still think about that burger!!

Blue Corn Cafe-
We had dinner here on our last night and loved it too. I ordered the ribs and this wonderful corn soup and margaritas. Ridiculously delicious! Our server was JARRAD!! He was great. Tell him the 3 giggling ladies in the booth near the door celebrating a 40th birthday said hello.

We are thinking of doing an annual trip back to Santa Fe.

a bit disappointing

from anticvals
the hotel facilities were extremely handsome and well appointed. the hotel's location a wonderful asset. my only qualms came early one morning when we were rudely awakenened by workmen LOUDLY shoveling snow (by far the most distressing god awful sound one could ever be treated to at 6:30 am) off the hotel's rooftop (right outside our balcony), waking us up extremely prematurely. after asking the front desk if we could be somehow compensated for this awful inconvenience with perhaps a free continental breakfast, we were told by the manager
on duty that he could not promise anything. worst of all, we were not offered even the minutest apology. to make a long story short, not even the remotest compensation was forthcoming from the hotel's management. overall, the front desk staff and management were certainly aloof in a "couldn't be bothered" sort of way, sometimes acting almost rudely when asked simple little questions like: where is the restaurant? these people clearly are in the wrong line of work if they can't be bothered to take care of guests in a civil, cordial manner. the location and experience of being so close to the plaza was quite a fascinating one, however.

Top Local Tips for Santa Fe

Canyon Road Gallery Openings On Friday nights, from 5-7, several galleries on Canyon Road will be open and offer snacks and look at their artists. It is really fun and a lot of locals attend. My recommendation is to make 7:30 reservations at El Farol (restaurant at the end of Canyon Road) and then, starting at five, meander up Canyon Road, go to the openings and end at El Farol (request outside seating). Order from the Tapas menu (for four people, start with about 6 tapas and expect to order a couple more. Fantastic!

better hotels budget travelers; go to Garrett's Desert Inn Inn of the Governor's is very nice have stayed there before\\
