Would not return

Everything was so inconvenient I hated returning to the hotel. Randomly the keys wouldn't work, and after climbing 32 stairs to my room with bags to find that out was more than frustrating. The wifi also didn't work about 75% of the times I'd try to log on. The only pop and ice machines were in the garage. Inconvenient on every level. Plus they didn't have my reservation when I arrived. The staff was very friendly, the only saving grace.

A Disappointment

Hotel had great location, but room was so smoky that it was suffocating ( we did not have a fire in the fireplace) toilette sounded like it was about to overflow, room had no coffee maker, even though it had coffee packs. The staff at the front desk, although pleasant, was clueless about recommendations for restaurants and for tours.

Cold and Understaffed

The room was cold, uncomfortable and not ready on time. The fireplace was nice until you had to move away from it, and then it was bitter cold. The staff were friendly but there were too few of them. No amenities to speak of.

Not a business traveler's hotel, but a nice, clean, boutique hotel

This was not a business traveler's hotel. Internet only available in the lobby, small bathrooms, difficult to park when checking in. For vacationers looking for a nice boutique hotel with excellent proximity to shopping via walking it would be great.

No AC and desk lied about it

Cute hotel. Needs some tender love. Great location. We couldn't get the AC to work. The front desk told us it was turned off (current temp was high 70s) because it was to snow in two days. Room was hot and loud all night due to open windows.

Santa Fe - where I always wanted to stop!

Wonderfully located in the center of town. The hotel itself is in the tradition of the Sourhwest. The room was very 'different' - not bad in any way, just different. The underground garage is an added plus. I would come back, though the town at night is deserted.

Under Construction!

We stopped in Santa Fe to explore and do the arts for a day. I chose Hotel Plaza Real because it is right off the plaza and within walking distance of all the galleries, the governor's palace, and museums. It also looked comfortable and southwestern, which it was. It was also undergoing MAJOR CONSTRUCTION, which meant morning noise, dust, and nothing available at the hotel but rooms. No breakfast, no bar, not even a lobby. If the hotel had been up and running, I would have thought the price I paid fair, but with the inconvenience caused by the construction I thing it was WAY OVER-PRICED. WHen the construction is done, it will be lovely and I would recommend it. But not until then.
