Getaways for Grownups – August 2015
Feel at home in Santa Fe, New Mexico – One of my personal favorite hotels is Inn on the Alameda in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s uniquely homey with a distinct sense of place, it’s convenient walking distance to all historic Santa Fe has to offer, it’s got everything a hotel needs, and the folks who work at the hotel are among the best in hospitality. And the price you’ll pay for all this and more feels like a great value; it’s the rare hotel these days where you won’t feel nickeled-and-dimed. Finding a place that truly feels as comfortable and welcoming as home while traveling is rare. The Inn on the Alameda is a place that consistently delivers and, even after I’ve had a few years for the memory of the place to build up, it even manages to exceed expectations on a revisit. I can’t wait to return.

Make the Inn home – The Inn on the Alameda, owned by the same family for 30 years, is the closest hotel to Canyon Road and an easy walk to downtown. If you don’t want to walk, the inn offers free valet service. The 72 guest rooms are situated in a handful of buildings, but everyone joins for the bounteous morning buffet breakfast and evening wine and appetizers in the lounge and dining area. A new chef has brought a fun, light evening dinner menu that makes for a great alternative to going out if the day has been full of museum going and shopping.

“We stayed at – and really liked – the Inn on the Alameda. This cozy boutique hotel includes colorful flower gardens and picturesque patios. Our deluxe king came with a fireplace and balcony. The Sanchez Suites are larger and include separate living rooms. I loved that the Inn was a couple of blocks from the Plaza, which, in summertime, is very busy and somewhat noisy. All guests at the Inn on the Alameda enjoy a complimentary cooked breakfast and a hosted wine and cheese hour in the afternoon. In addition, we had a terrific dinner one night in the hotel’s Agoyo Lounge. The menu includes a tasty range of small plates and light main courses. My husband and I started with baked Brie in crispy phyllo dough served with toasted spiced nuts and fresh fruit. We also really liked the ‘tarte of the day,’ which was a flatbread topped with crème fraiche, smoked salmon, spinach, and Gruyere cheese.”

“Historic, charming, and truly enchanting, the Inn on the Alameda is a gem, which shines brightly against the arid mountain-desert of the Southwest.”
Phoenix Magazine – February 2013
“This quaint country inn lies within walking distance of bustling Canyon Road and serves a hearty Breakfast of Enchantment featuring things like hot croissants stuffed with green chile and tomatoes. There’s also a complimentary wine and cheese reception in the lounge every evening.”
Coast Magazine – November 2012
The Inn, while giving the impression of being a private getaway far from the pulse of downtown, was actually right in the heart of the action – walking distance, it turns out, from almost all of the city’s main attractions. …The Inn istelf is intimate, with a series of casitas housing rooms of different sizes and styles, all in the ubiquitous pueblo style. Enormous vigas (long, heavy wood rafters that support the roof in American Indain and Spanish architecture) run the length of the hotel lobby, from which breakfast is served everfy morning – one of the livelier and most scenic breakfasts we had in Santa Fe, especially if you sit outside on the floer-dotted patio and migle with guests hailing from near and far.”

“The Inn on the Alameda (where, our editors say, it’s all about privacy and a sense of place) is celebrating Santa Fe’s growing reputation as a food city with diverse cuisine and a popular farmers’ market.”
The Daily Meal – August 2012
“On the heels of the Rand McNally/USA Today Best of the Road contest, where Santa Fe, New Mexico was voted the city in America Best for Food, the Inn on the Alameda offers travelers the chance to sample Santa Fe’s cuisine with a Fresh Santa Fe package.”

“There are flashier, more cosseting hotels here, but there’s a reason this unassuming “old Santa Fe” inn at the edge of downtown has lasted as long as it has…..The 71 individually designed rooms are charming and comfortable (especially their plump beds), many with wood-burning fireplaces and patios, and get my vote for the best value in town.”
Examiner.com – May 2012
“In the heart of Old Santa Fe, Inn on the Alameda offers the luxury of one of the Southwest’s best small hotels with the secluded ambience of a country B&B. Just a block from the art galleries of Canyon Road and three blocks from the historic Plaza, the Inn is within strolling distance of most of Santa Fe’s cultural attractions….A lavish breakfast buffet (including gluten-free and vegan options), free parking and wi-fi add value and pleasure to a stay. Daily complimentary wine-and-cheese rceptions are very popular with guests, who gather every afternoon ….to chat about the day’s experienceand plan evening activities.”
Ladies Home Journal – April 2012
“Rest and Renew. The Inn on the Alameda is a Southwest-style hotel nestled in the heart of Santa Fe. Perks include…..complimentary wine and cheese every afternoon.”
LATimes.com – February 2012
“I like this offering because the inn gets good user reviews and, unlike some other hotels, it doesn’t slap on resort fees or charge for parking. Its room rates include continental breakfast, an afternoon wine reception and free Wi-Fi.”
