Booked last minute whilst traveling on our way to LA and wanted to visit Santa Fe. The hotel is just outside of the main town and is surrounded with some nice views of the mountains. The room was clean, spacious and bathroom of a good standard. They are pet friendly however there is a $50 fee but this is similar...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were very nice, very clean and nicely decorated. The frig. in the room was an added bonus. Lots of gift shops, nice restaurants and very welcoming sitting areas. We enjoyed our stay. The Casino was nice and offered a non-smoking area. We will return for another visit.

We stay at BT quite often and sometimes use it for several days, applying our membership points. The hotel is gorgeous and very centrally located between many destinations from Santa Fe to Taos. Being out in the countryside and near the famously acclaimed Gabriel's restaurant is also a great big plus for BT. Its clean, beautifully decorated and the staff...

Stayed at The Hilton Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino for 4 nights. Excellent property with great prices and the staff was wonderful. The rooms are quite huge and the beds are very comfortable. The food at the Buffet is good and the prices very reasonable. Would definitely stay here again in a heart beat.

Clean and very tastefully decorated. All the staff were kind and very helpful. The hotel rooms were spacious and very accomodating. The shower quality was good, with no trouble setting the water temperature as in some hotels I have stayed in. The shower is enclosed which really helps to keep the floor dry and safe which is important to us....

Stayed a few nights in this scenic environment. Artwork in lobby and throughout were fantastic. Staff were great. Had a very nice dinner at the The Red Sage. Breakfasts at the Iguana were outstanding. Nice walking trail near the golf course. Room was quiet & clean. Comfortable balcony to enjoy the 55 degree sun! Really nice Hilton

Nice Hotel, beautiful Native American Art, Textiles and Sculptures… good food and a talented bartender… Staff is accommodating… the only rub is both times I have stayed I have been woken up by a fire alarm and had to evacuate… in spite of this I would consider returning… they have been very good to me

The Hilton Buffalo Thunder is our go-to spot in Santa Fe. From the service to the food, to the artwork, it is top notch. Be sure to try the steakhouse, as well as the adjacent bar. Excellent food, thoughtfully prepared! The hotel rooms are beautifully appointed with a local flair. If you can book it, be sure to try the...

Nice place to relax! My husband enjoys watching all the college bowl games and I can enjoy a little time in the casino. 15-20 minute drive to be at the square in Santa Fe.. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Thanksgiving night at around 11:30 pm we experienced a fire alarm and instructions to vacate the building... took about an hour for the all clear... then the exodus for the elevators... since every room was empty it created a line of guests waiting for the elevators.

Dear Douglas K.: I understand clearly your frustration while on our property. The fire alarms serve a purpose and the safety and wellbeing of our guests is a priority. When an alarm does go off, it is our responsibility to respond accordingly. Unfortunately floor and building evacuations can be an intruding inconvenience at any given hour. We have protocols we...
