Historical Traveller Reviews of Inn Of the Anasazi Hotel

Nice but not worth the price

from Asian_traveller_TX
I'm a doctor and my wife is an executive so we tend to stay at "luxury" hotels when we travel, however, even by our standards we found this hotel overpriced. It's a nice hotel, no doubt about it, with accommodating staff, but at over $400/night (after taxes) for a standard room of 370 sq feet, I just don't think it's worth the price. We shortened our stay at this hotel after two days and moved to Ten Thousand Waves where we got a large suite for $100 less.

Best inn ever

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed at the Inn of the Anasazi in September of 2005. The rooms were extremely nice and very comfortable but not large. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed dinner which was very good in their restaurant one of those nights. The location is perfect with only a short walk to the Plaza. We were able to go in and out all day long without any inconvenience. The concierge was very helpful with maps and ideas for sightseeing. This was definitely a top notch hotel, and we would stay there again if we are ever lucky enough to go back to Santa Fe.

Worthy of every accolade

from LHill
My wife and I travel frequently, stay in the top hotels and resorts world-wide, and can say that Inn of The Anasazi is as good as any. Rooms are extremely comfortable. Linens, fittings and fixtures, every detail, first rate. Staff could not be more helpful (doorman and parking attendant outfitted in old-west white shirt, black jeans and stetson are a great touch).

The restaurant is excellent. The location, with the town square only a half block away, could not be better (be certain to visit, and buy from, the native craftsmen and women there throughout the day).

We have visited Sante Fe frequently over the years. It is a special place. So is this hotel. We look forward to coming back.

Wonderful!

from daphnebar
Our stay at the Inn of the Anasazi, though brief, was very nice--the nicest by far of the three properties we stayed at in Santa Fe. Check-in was efficient and timely, and we were shown to a lovely, quiet room on the second floor. The decor was Southwestern but understated, with a kiva fireplace in the corner. The bathroom was spacious and very clean, and the amenities seemed high quality. The view was nothing to speak of, but this is true of most of the rooms because of the building's position. We were steps from the Plaza, yet it was very quiet (even with the bongo drums playing in the Plaza past 11). The restaurant downstairs was superb--again, the best of the many we tried in Santa Fe. We had a room service breakfast--and the breakfast prices do not suffer from the usual room service mark-up. Should we return to Santa Fe, this is the place we will stay.

The best!

Awesome hotel! Amazing location and the most warm, friendly and helpful concierge you'll ever meet (I believe her name is Jodi). Also, the little night time turn-down treats they leave in your room are to die for!

Pleasant and convenient place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed at the Inn in Spring and found it to be the quietest hotel/inn we have ever encountered. Without exception, all of the staff were extremely attentive and prompt. Our room was modest in size, but very attractive and tastefully furnished and appointed with quality materials. High ceilings seem to minimize the impression that things are pretty tight. In a city of three-story buildings, one cannot expect a view, except of the street from the front rooms. We saw only a narrow glimpse of the street. If you are going to spend much time in your room, perhaps this place is not for you.

The library is very attractive, and the lobby with its fireplace was extremely pleasant in the cool weather. The bar is OK, just a quiet bar with nice furnishings and a good bartender.

If you are going to walk around the city the Inn is in a great location. The lack of on-site parking requires the use of the valet, which can be an annoyance. But we had only a five minute wait for the car when we requested it.

Since we spent our time out and about, we found several other appealing restaurants and did not eat any meals in the Inn. We did get a recommendation at the Inn for a restaurant we had seen, The Shed. My wife and I agree that the only fault we find with the Inn is they had recommended that lackluster little place. It is a study in mediocrity.

Comfortable rooms, though noisy at night

from cattycat99
We just returned from a February weekend in Santa Fe. We stayed at the Inn of the Anasazi, which is a lovely little hotel. The best parts:
- the beds - incredibly soft sheets and comforter
- wonderful pine scented bath products
- extreme cleanliness of the rooms
- the hotel's public spaces (library and living area)
- quick and efficient valet service (we checked out car in/out several times)
- location, location, location! the inn is within 1 minute walk from the Plaza
- little touches - the humidifier during turn-down, the fresh apples left in our room

The challenges:
- Noisy outside. Our room (on the south side of the building) faced the back of a restaurant, so every night around 10-11 we'd hear them bringing the garbage out - was very loud. And 2 out of the 3 mornings we stayed there, I was also awakened by the garbage truck at 530am coming to get that trash. Very, very loud. I am surprised that no one has commented on this before, but maybe it's because I'm a light sleeper. I would recommend requesting a north facing room.
- No business center/computer. We like to print our boarding passes out before we get to airport and there is no computer for public use. We were told by front desk we could use their computer and that people "use it all the time for boarding passes"; when we got there at midnight to print tickets, found out internet wasn't working and hadn't been for several days.
- Minor complaint - there is a beautiful library area with a fireplace and upon checkin, we were told we could request a fire to be built when we were in room. When I asked, I was told "we're working on it" and 1/2 hr passed and no fire. Not sure what was going on there, but was a slight disappointment.

I would recommend this hotel, but request a room that doesn't face the back of that restaurant and know that the Inn probably caters more to vacationers than business travelers. We travel a lot for business and pleasure and I think the Anasazi has potential to be a top hotel with minor tweaks in service and some influence with the noise level from next door.

Santa Fe was wonderful. We ate at the Anasazi our first night - had wonderful Navajo flat bread, was underwhelmed with the risotto. Our best dinner was at the Shed around the corner, which is probably the back of the restaurant that was keeping me up at night! For breakfast, we went twice to the Plaza Restuarant around the corner (right on West side of Plaza) and had a great breakfast burrito/blue corn and pinon pancakes.

Besides wandering around Santa Fe and looking at galleries, etc. we headed to the Japanese spa, 10000 Waves for massages - my husband said he got the best massage ever there! And we also ventured to Museum hill and saw the museum of Indian Arts and Culture - was very impressive.

We always return to the Inn, and to Room #221,

from GWBrowning
Which we have had several visits. Unable to book over Christmas, we returned to Santa Fe, and Our Room at the Inn, Jan. 2nd, for three nights. The holiday bustle is gone, as are the traffic and the tourists, a lovely time to be in town. The Inn welcomed us as always, the room with its fireplace, 4-poster, large bath, comfy sofa,and wonderful NM decoration and large patio (for winter star-gazing!) as inviting as ever. Housekeeping and room service for breakfasts as friendly and as unobtrusive as ever. It was very cold, and it snowed. The room's a perfect hideout in which to read, watch the fire, and prepare for the evening. (The restaurant, alas, was closed for some re-furbishment our stay.) The bar is small, but NOT boring as written by a previous reviewer. It is friendly, the margaritas and bar food yummy, locals wander in and speak both with the guests and their favorite bartenders. All in all, it's a lovely and perfect spot to land after shopping in the afternoons, or pre-/post-dinner out. Joanie at the Desk, and Doral, one of the two Concierges, will make you welcome. One problem: 221's booked for next Christmas! We've learned our lesson re. advance booking over the Yule - having missed out on the small size of the Inn and its popularity these past two Christmas seasons, we've got it under deposit for December, 2005!! But don't despair, there are three or four other similar lovelies with the big terrace, as well as some larger corner rooms suitable for entertaining their sitting areas are so large! Book now to be there then!

Great choice for nice rooms and great cuisine

from KTzip
We visited the Inn of the Anasazi in December before Christmas. We got a great off season deal directly with the Inn for a fairly small room decorated nicely in southwest style with a wonderful fireplace. The bed and feather pillows were very comfy and the down comforter soft and perfect for the crisp winter nights. The Inns restaurant serves delicious meals, most with regional flavors and the ambiance is warm and relaxing. The wine list is not very big but seemed impressive. With frustration, we found the first four wines we selected from the list one evening, were not in the cellar. Yes, I said four. The waitress was clueless about the wines on the list and even offered, we felt, an inferior wine as a substitute. The menu seems to be updated frequently by the chef, apparently not the case for the wine cellar. The hotel offers a library to relax in a comfortable overstuffed chair with a good book or brandy by the fireplace. We did not rent a car but brought good shoes and walked all over town. Great location from which to walk to many shops, restaurants, museums and the sites of Santa Fe.
For a little more action, walk to the La Fonda for cocktails, especially margaritas, as the Inns bar is small and boring.

Restaurant

from erniec
The hotel looks lovely; this is about the restaurant that has star billing. Is it justified? Frankly, NO. We had a perfectly pleasant meal in very pleasanat surroundings but the food did not live up to the hype. It was interesting and carefully presented but lacked any real innovative skill. Halibut with angel hair pasta and pok choy floated in a vaguely citrusy thin sauce and whilst the ingredients were all good the whole just didn't work. Delicious pud however. We were surprised to find champagne, two ports and a sherry on the desert wine menu and eventually opted for a dull but palatable NZ wine at $5 a glass. Give it a whirl but don't expect too much. Bill came to over $100 dollars for two mains, one desert and 2 glasses of desert wine. Finding it hard to grasp that Santa Fe is the gastronomic heart of the USA!

Top Local Tips for Santa Fe

Anasazi Stay at the beautiful Inn! You will not be let down!

10,000 waves is amazing Japanese bath/spa Book 4 handed massage--one of best I have had

Can't predict the weather If you don't care for changeable weather don't visit before June. It was 83 the day we arrived and two days later it was 47 with wind and hail. The day we left it was 81. We were there 5 days.
