Thanksgiving weekend getaway!

Even though the hotel is a ten minute drive from the plaza its still totally worrh it. The breakfasts are great. The casino is a lot of fun. There are many places to eat or have a drink. The inside pool is nice for the winter time. I really enjoyed my weekend getaway at the hotel. Will definetly come back soon.

weekend getaway

overall experience was great except for the fact that I did not receive the deluxe king suite that I paid for since the hotel was overbooked. The hotel said that since I purchased through a third party, my reservation for a specific room wasnt valid. That is ridiculous especially when I paid more that specific room. At the very least I should be refunded the difference since I did not get what I paid for

Great night stay

I arrived to property early, it was nice toi be allowed an early check-in, 1'ish. Was giving a top floor room with a nice view of golf course and water fountain pond. The pleasant room was topped off with available bathrobe. This is my second stay at hotel. I'll BE BACK and will let folks know to stay while in area. Only click four stars...morning breakfact buffet $15, wasn't worth cost. Waitstaff was fine, issue was food selection was no better than what you are serve at two-star

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

I selected this hotel because of close prox.to Santa Fe Opera (approx 10mi) to see Tony Bennett. After I booked on line I called hotel to inquire about shuddle service to venue told it does not. Hotel apologize and offer a taxi costing ~$30 each way....good thing i had a car! A shuddle would have been made entire stay a perfect 5 stars

Has gone downhill fast

I have stayed at this hotel at least a dozen times and this will be the absolute last time. It's pretty horrible now, and the services are sub par and in many cases non existent. One night there was no parking available and then had to wait an hour for a paid valet. After waiting went to front desk to be told there was one person handling valet and other services and they were busy. Front desk person couldn't even be bothered to take my keys so I waited for another 30 minutes. On top of that there was construction outside my window and when opened my doors a huge gust of dirt and smoke came into my room. Front desks apology consisted of telling me that they would be done in a few weeks. Only one towel in the room resulted in another hour wait, and zero interest in the front desk hearing another complaint. It's obvious the well publicized financial issues of the casino has caused this casino and hotel to drop staff and services. Do not reccomend unless you don't care about anything but a really ugly room to lay your head on.

Well......

It was okay. My wife and I stayed there 1 nite. Pictures looked good on the website so we thought why not its a casino hotel and thought we could enjoy the pool by day and casino by night. Pool is nice as long as you enjoy swimming with children. It was like White Water(water park)with kids everywhere. Not what we expected at a casino hotel. Rooms were very nice and clean.
