Historical Traveller Reviews of Las Palomas de Santa Fe Hotel

A bit of a dissapointment

from Laserglo
Our room was spacious, but the furniture was shabby, the bedspread which had an odor, doubled as the blanket, not something I usually see in a $200.00 a night room. I asked twice for additional pillows, they never arrived. When we returned to our room after it had been cleaned there was a filthy rag laying in the bathroom sink.
A positive note, breakfast was very good, but again the service was rather spotty as was the level of cleanliness throughout the hotel.
My understanding is that the hotel very recently changed ownership. I hope they get a better handle on the mangement of this once lovely hotel.

A home away from home!

from Travel Explorer
How wonderful to stay in a 'home away from home'. We stayed in a casita at Las Palomas de Santa Fe and it was wonderful. It had a lovely outdoor patio area, beautiful and very comfortable living room and bedroom, spacious bathroom and small kitchen (which we did not need). Staying in this environment is sooooo much nicer than just being confined to a 'bedroom'. The breakfast was an expanded continental type with delicious waffles. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. It's located just a short walk from the Plaza. It's a place you don't want to leave!!!!! It's a welcoming place to return to at the end of the day! We can't wait to return there; we stayed in #33.

Best hotel in Santa Fe

from A TripAdvisor Member
I had stayed at Las Palomas after a couple of days at a four diamond hotel in town and was very surprized to see that the quality of service and ammenity's were far beyond the four diamond hotel. The staff was very helpful and polite in all of our interactions. From the restuarants they had suggested, to the breakfast in the morning, we were blown away with the options they had preseneted us. We had delightful meals and accommodations the entire stay, do to the helpful suggestions from the staff and superb breakfast.

In my opinion, Las Palomas far exceeds that of every other hotel in Santa Fe due to the originality, location, professionalism and staff. This hotel is a true representation of the south west style and culture and when I come to Santa Fe I wll only stay at Las Palomas.

Traveled with 3 generations and loved Las Palomas

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I attended a conference in Santa Fe and brought our two year old daughter and my mother along for the trip. Our plane was late and we arrived much later than we'd anticipated at 1:00am to an empty front desk, but a quick call roused the VERY friendly and cheerful manager who even helped us carry our bags to our room and found a crib and extra pillows and blankets for us. Our room was perfect for our intergenerational group, decorated in a simple but very comfortable style. The livingroom had a gas fireplace with we used every night, a large TV, CD player, etc. My mom slept on the very comfortable leather pull-out couch in the living room. Our bedroom and the livingroom were separated by two doors, and afforded excellent sleeping privacy. The outdoor walkways to the rooms provided a quaint and comforting atmosphere, they felt just like little village pathways. Tables and chairs set up in the small courtyard allowed for places to enjoy the fresh air. It was wonderful to stay in a place that felt secluded from the hassle and congestion of Santa Fe streets but was only 4 blocks or so from downtown. Everything about the stay was wonderful. But perhaps the best aspect of all was the morning breakfast. Complimentary lattes, and fresh baked waffles (even micky mouse shaped waffles for kids) made breakfast my favorite part of the day. Each morning we were greated with a different special baked good of the day, one day it was home-made cinnamon rolls, the next chocolate croisants, the next blueberry muffins--all in addition to the daily waffles and lattes!! If we ever find ourselves in Santa Fe again, especially with an intergenerational group, we will definitely stay at Las Palomas.

away from home...

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from a lovely stay at the Las Palomas Santa Fe. We arrived very late on a Saturday night, greeted by the manager, Patrick, who was very friendly to us. We had been given a Pueblo style room and were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to casita number 21. There was a sitting area with a couch and area rug, CD player, utility kitchen complete with microwave, 2 burner stove, mini fridge, dishes and silverware. The bathroom had a skylight over the shower. The best feature was the bedroom with a very inviting King size bed, although that did make it a little tough to get to the dresser, and an adorable woodburning Kiva in the corner of the room, firewood supplied. Since this was a "winter" vacation and it did snow off & on the 3 days we were there, it was nice to warm up to the fire. Also the complementary "continental" breakfast was a nice touch with homemade waffles. The location was an easy 3 block walk to the Plaza area and if we return to Santa Fe, we will return to Las Palomas.

An Inspiring and Relaxing Oasis

from A TripAdvisor Member
I grew up in the Southwest, so when I return there I am always looking for a new experience. Las Palomas and Santa Fe turned out to be a perfect match for a family getaway. My parents had stayed there once before and told me about it, so we all decided to try it!!!! The atmosphere echoes the natural beauty of Santa Fe, and the service was first-rate! It was nestled in a quiet little corner of the downtown area and had a lot of personal charm. We got a great rate on our room and it was the perfect place to return to after a long day of hiking or visiting local art galleries. When you come to a place like Santa Fe, away from the torments of New York, you want a relaxed and personal environment to unwind in, and that's just what we got at Las Palomas. We even saw families with little kids having a good time, and I know that my parents think it's great for a romantic weekend... so, in short, if you are planning a trip to see the inspiring beauty of Santa Fe, Las Palomas delivers the true Santa Fe spirit!!!!

The BEST place to stay in Santa Fe!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Las Palomas surpassed my expectations in every way. When I walked into the office to check-in for my stay, I was greeted by the smell of freshly baked cookies and the warmth of the fireplace. The staff was more than accommodating—before even being shown to my room, I was offered a cappuccino and a taste of those wonderful cookies! They also explained their library of books, CDs and videos which are available to any of the guests.

A staff member walked me to my room and helped me with my bags. Immediately outside the front door stood two wooden rocking chairs and a small wooden table—a perfect way to enjoy the sun in the mornings. Upon entering my “room”, I was shocked to discover that it was actually larger than most Manhattan apartments! This unit held a kitchenette complete with coffee maker, microwave, stove, refrigerator, sink, cookware, silverware, dishes, soap, dishcloths, and a dining-room table and chairs. A leather sofa and chair, coffee table, wood-burning gas stove, television and VCR created a cozy atmosphere for the living room. I was able to enjoy several leisurely evenings of reading by the fireplace! The bedroom was nicely decorated with a king-sized bed, plenty of comfy pillows, another television and large bureau. The bathroom was clean and tidy, with two terry-cloth robes available in addition to plenty of towels, washcloths, soaps, and the ever-important hair-dryer! I definitely appreciated the iron and ironing board in the closet, as well as the wooden hangers.

Every morning, breakfast was available from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m., offering freshly-made Belgian waffles, lattes or cappuccinos, as well as a variety of fresh fruits and juices. The staff was always available to provide information about Santa Fe—the best tours, good restaurants, and interesting art exhibits. My room was always clean and comfortable—housekeeping did a wonderful job. The grounds were also clean—the stone walk-way gave me a feeling that I was in a small village somewhere. I loved the interior and exterior Native American art—sculptures, totem poles, and small “churches”. Evidently, the owner of Las Palomas has commissioned these pieces from a local artist.

I loved my stay at Las Palomas! Las Palomas provided me with a place to stay that was just as comfortable as my own home. I will definitely be coming back, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Fe!

One of the Worst Hotels Ever !!

from OmahaNorbie
Where do I begin? When we arrived, we were given a room in the "pueblo" style which translates to ugly and about two blocks away from the office. When we pushed the door to our room open (it sticks badly) - we were met with an overpowering smell of smoke (cigarette and otherwise). we tried to turn the light on (didn't work) and looked around. The room was horrible!! Dirty smears on all the walls, damp cold smell, ugly worn and misshapen furniture, windows that either didn't open or opened out on a courtyard without any screen or security protection. We called the office and told them we couldn't accept this room - the smell alone was quickly closing my sinuses. They reluctantly told us to wait and they would call back. After 15 minutes, they hadn't returned our call and so we called them. The front desk staff was apathetic and not too concerned about our unhappiness but instructed us to return to the office and they would see what could be done. We schlepped our bags back out to the car and drove back to the office. The clerk told us the smell was probably due to the "charming fireplace" in the corner of the ugly living room portion but gave us another key to try a different room. We left our bags in the car and walked over to the new room and took a look. Horrible again - but without the smoke smell. It was Saturday night in Santa Fe and nothing else was available. We had already paid $250 for this non-smoking reservation via their very misleading website so we were forced to stay. The bed was ok - but the condition and appearance of the room is just plain ugly. What they consider ambiance is - in our well traveled opinion - just tacky. We felt like we were camping out for the night in the badly designed basement apartment of a not-so-nice acquaintance ( unfinished wooden shelves, toilet tank lid broken, no shelf in shower, shower curtain doesn't cover opening, broken chair in living room, no window covering on window of door facing street, badly stained walls, etc. ). Run, dont' walk, away from this property. It's not anything like the website purports. What a ripoff!!

t expect the moon

from A TripAdvisor Member
Nice quiet and cute (great NM ambiance) place within easy walking distance of the Plaza. First time to New Mexico. My sister and I rented the Casita with the "sofa sleeper couch". We enjoyed our stay. Great deluxe continental breakfast in the morning. Ask for a latte (giant mug with 3 inches of steamed milk on top). Only issues - we were delayed by several hours in receiving messages (I had seen this problem listed before) - caused some upset family members. Also - do not expect to be able use the couch as an extra bed. It was the most uncomfortable sofa bed either of us had ever experienced. (Springs sticking you all over your body bad). The other bed was very nice. Otherwise a nice place to stay.

Great place

from A TripAdvisor Member
Las Palomas B&B is now owned/managed by the Anasazi Hotel (previously by the Eldorado.) It reflects the same level of service and comfort. We visit Santa Fe at least 2x/year with our dogs and always are looking for a dog-friendly yet upscale place to stay. Our room was actually a suite with bedroom and living room and large bath. Everything was new or updated and very clean. There was a small fridge with an "honor" mini-bar. The unit had self contained heat/air-con and also opening windows. As is usual with many B&Bs, videos are available for use in the room and breakfast is included although we didn't indulge, opting instead for one morning at the Plaza Restaurant and one morning at Horseman's Haven. Our only complaint was a constant noise/humming that was coming from an unseen mechanical unit. All in all, a terrific place and we'll be back.

Top Local Tips for Santa Fe

Eat at Cafe Pasquale This tip is no secret: this restaurant near the Plaza is famous. The food is consistently creative, ample, and fabulous--worth waiting in line for when you have to (and you often don't have to). And if you're on a tight budget, eat breakfast or lunch here, and dinner elsewhere. (Cowgirl Cafe is a less-expensive place for dinner, with great southwestern food.) I eat at least one meal here every time I come to Santa Fe and it always makes me happy! Joyful, casual decor and atmosphere; clientele includes both locals and tourists.

Santa Fe It sounds like I complain alot, and maybe I am a little critical but when I go on vacation and spend good money I expect to be satisfied. The snow was great, but the drive from downtown there was miserable, parking at the mountain a bear. Restaurants were nice, we ate very well, and were satisfied w/ the choices. Especially, and I cant remember the name of a Sushi/Hibachi grill on Cerrillos Rd. The locals were exceptionaly kind, unusually so for a tourist town. The hotel I will stay in when I go back will be the Marriott Residence Inn, staff were very welcoming, and the rooms were extremely comfortable. If your Military, I can't recommend this place enough, you will be treated as an individual doing the jobs we do should be treated.

Outdoor experiences. There are many outdoor opportunites in Santa Fe and the area. Although you can walk throughout the central parts of the city with ease and comfort, it is important to have your own transportation. At the end of Upper Canyon Road is a series of trails. The relatively easy Santa Fe Canyon Loop Trail takes you by water, great vistas, and a variety of plant life. The signage and narration (provided by the Nature Conservancy) are good additions. The trail, is good for people who can handle a short hike (about 1.5) miiles , but don't want to feel to pushed. Plus, you can turn back at any point if you feel it is too much. But, really it's great for kids and seniors. Also, we went early in the morning, and there were only a few other people. The location also includes the Dale Baile (probably I have mispelled this) trails which are more challenging and longer. Be sure to go to Bandalier National Monument and make time for a stop at White Rock for the unbelievable views of the Rio Grande.
