Happy New Year from Santa Fe
January 07, 2011
THE OLD YEAR has passed, and the new year is welcomed in with snowflakes and pinon smoke here in Santa Fe. The days will now grow longer, and we turn our thoughts to the many blessings we have enjoyed in the year gone by. Despite the many challenges in today’s world, we find our hearts are filled with gratitude, and here are some of the reasons for our contentment.
OUR GUESTS! We feel truly fortunate that so many interesting and friendly people pass through our doors. After 25 years of welcoming travelers to Santa Fe, the pleasure of saying “Thank you for choosing the Inn” is still genuine. We understand that travel can be stressful and that satisfying dreams is a tall order, so the kind comments and thoughtful feedback we receive is always welcome. We appreciate every single visitor who crosses our thresh-hold and gives us the opportunity to help him or her enjoy the very things we cherish about the Land of Enchantment.
OUR STAFF! Having tenured staff who remember your guests and address them by name is a treasure beyond price. Not a day goes by when we are not aware that the world of hospitality often has a revolving door that can rapidly channel staff in and out. The fact that our staff stays with us for years is an honor of which we strive to be worthy. From the laundry to the maintenance crew, from the kitchen to the front desk, the lounge to the reservation desk, we thank you all, each and everyone, for your dedication and commitment. Our guests feel like family, because our staff is our family!
OUR OWNERS! It probably goes without saying, but a well-run property can only operate successfully from the top down. Having a sole owner since the beginning, and knowing that this same person built the property from the ground up, we are able to ensure that the Inn will always look and feel her best. We feel confident in saying “Nuestra casa es tu casa” because our casa has felt the loving care of owners whose taste, instincts and attention to detail have led to our success. Thank you, Joe and Angelica Schepps!
OUR CITY! It is so uplifting to live in such a unique and inspirational spot! Santa Fe always ranks in the top ten of travel publication polls with good reason. Our sublime climate, our perfect size, the presence of world-class arts organizations, unusual mercados, the blend of native cultures, delicious cuisine, the beautiful natural surroundings, all these things combine to keep us here and allow us to offer a panoply of experiences to our visitors. Muchissimas Gracias a La Villa Real de la Santa Fe San Francisco de Assis……Santa Fe!
For those who have yet to visit, we invite you to discover the charms of our city and our Inn! And for those who return to us again and again, our thanks for helping us create a home away from home in Santa Fe!
