This was our second stay at what has become our favorite spot in Santa Fe. It had been almost six years, so as we neared La Posada I'll confess we wondered a bit whether or not the resort would be as wonderful as we remembered... it was even better, which is saying a great deal!
From the prompt and efficient check-in service to the quick arrival of our luggage in our room by a smiling valet who knew the answers to our questions we knew we were in for another 5-star stay. Our room was lovely with a flat screen TV, comfortable leather arm chair, desk for the laptop, mini bar, coffee server, king size bed with four downy pillows. In the bathroom area was a large closet, safe, ironing board and iron. The sink counter was wide with plenty of room for two plus all of our accoutrements. AND, the amenities - Frette towels, plus delicious body lotion, conditioner, shampoo, and mouth wash formulated exclusively for Rock Resorts. (Loved the Lavender & Lemongrass shampoo!)
Breakfast on the patio was a delight - everything from Huevos Rancheros to pancakes to granola. We enjoyed dinner in one of the Resort's restaurants, Fuego, (Braised Beef Short Rib for him and Wild Mushroom Cavatelli for me). Another evening was sparked with live music and after dinner drinks in the bar - a fun place! Dress throughout the Resort is casual, comfortable.
There's a Business Center available with computers and printer, plus a shuttle service providing rides into downtown Santa Fe and pick-up when called. This service is on a first come first served basis, but we never waited longer than 10 minutes either way. A newspaper of your choice is delivered to your room each morning, and other papers are available in the main lounge area.
La Posada has an on-site curator and displays over $1 million of original art works throughout the Resort's public spaces and guest rooms. What an experience to stroll throughout while admiring this magnificent collection of art! Pops of color greet you around corners just as sunlit landscapes draw your eye.
Cannot say enough good things about the staff who were always friendly, ready to help if wanted and never intrusive. Actually, we cannot say enough good things about La Posada de Santa Fe! We're already planning a return visit as we're eager to enjoy it at each season of the year.
