Historic, charming, and truly enchanting, the Inn on the Alameda is a gem which shines brightly against the arid mountain-desert of the Southwest. Artistic, symbolic and truly lavish, the Inn is a treat for those wishing to visit a city where Native American culture abounds.
Nestled behind adobe walls, only steps from the heart of old Santa Fe, the Inn on the Alameda is a unique four and a half star lodge with distinctive pueblo revival architecture truly on display.
Tan adobe blocks form the walls of each suite, with three stories peacefully shaded by lush greenery, colourful xeriscaped gardens, and private wooden balconies creating an intimate but sophisticated setting. Dried chilli peppers hang on lanais, draped from each balcony, symbolistic of true New Mexican culture. Firewood sits neatly piled outside each ground floor suite, with unadorned outdoor furniture fitting with the hotel’s theme of simplistic elegance.
The Inn on the Alameda is an experience within itself, and truly the best way to experience Santa Fe.
Affectionately known to locals as “that enchanting small hotel in old Santa Fe”, while enchanting it is, small it is not. The Inn is cozy, intimate and quiet; though with spacious suites set gracefully across a property which spans 2 acres and 10 buildings, including a beautifully designed lobby with expansive breakfast hall and bar, one could hardly describe it as small. However the modesty and understated elegance of the Inn is it’s main charm.
While sprawled across a sizable portion of land in historic Santa Fe, the Inn is well-designed to achieve a perfect balance of intimate and low key, while remaining lavish and sophisticated.
Roomy suites allow guests the ability to sprawl out while reading up on the history of New Mexico from the diverse range of literature provided in-room. Private balconies allow guests to enjoy the fresh air in an intimate setting. A fully-equipped exercise room and two hot tubs on site cater to everyone, whether you are looking to exercise or relax.
Steps from the hotel, Mariachi music fills the historic Santa Fe Plaza as Mexican musicians play until the sun goes down. There are no parking fees at the Inn, so accessing the city’s main attractions, restaurants and cultural spots is a breeze.
But the best part? There are no hidden fees!
While the amount of complimentary amenities included in the price of each room almost borders on the outrageous, the main inclusions involve free high speed wifi, complimentary onsite parking, complimentary courtesy shuttle to downtown attractions, local and 800-number calls always at no charge, organic in-room coffee, lobby library with books and games, and a relaxing wine-and-cheese reception daily from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., with a selection of cheeses, olives, bread, fruit and crudite.
An “expanded continental breakfast” is also available, which translates into a lavish spread of fresh-cut fruits, organic dairy and cereal products, juices, an array of pastries, savory options like quiche or stuffed croissants, and a wide range of eggs, including organic and gluten-free choices.
Of course these are all locally-sourced wherever possible.
The Inn on the Alameda is intimate; the Inn on the Alameda is elegant, and the Inn on the Alameda is right in the heart of Santa Fe.
