"Perfect iconoclastic location near the Plaza"
This little jewel is the perfect spot for a Santa Fe visit. It is just 2, maybe 3 blocks from the plaza in the heart of the city. We found the informal check in and check out procedure refreshing... nothing to sign, no credit cards to run (granted, we had pre-booked with expedia). Just get your room code, and move in. This little boutique hotel is quite different than the "BIG" hotel experience... no restaurant, no grand entrance nor large lobby, no phone, and, presumably, no room service.
But who needs or wants any of that useless stuff. Most travelers today just want a quite, nicely decorated homey room with a small refrig and coffee, and wireless access. check, check, and check. Oh, and don't worry about getting the special password for the wireless access... none is required. Just boot up and start surfing.
And with more cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, etc within a couple of block walking distance than you could shake a stick at, what's not to like?
If we had any complaint, it would be the lack of any hotel-owned parking, so guests are on their own for that. We were able to park every night right in front, on the street (free from 6 PM on), but in busier times that might not be an option. Otherwise, plan on $20/day for the public garage just next door (not sure if that allows multiple ingress/egress)
Next time we return to Santa Fe (and we surely will), without question this is exactly where I'd want to stay again.
