Santa Fe is a beautiful location with a lot to do especially if you are an art enthusiast. As a meeting location it is not ideal - mainly because it is difficult to get to. So, when I was told that our Board meeting was at the El Dorado Hotel & Spa, I was expecting a beautiful facility. What I...

The hotel carpets are dirty. Need replacement as it really sends a poor impression. Ice machines on 2nd and 3rd floor were not working. Room lighting was horrible. We felt like we were in a cave. Hotel staff was great and restaurant and bar were fun and good. Wife is at spa today so well post on that later.

As it's *the* hotel to stay at - you might find yourself like we did last Summer sharing the space with government officials and a few from our neighbor to the south - and their assorted guards, security, and drivers. But they are also polite and will let you to your business as they attend to theirs. Our room was...

We had trouble checking in but it was Booking.com that was to blame as our reservation did not go through. When they sorted that out, they sent us to the wrong room, we waited. It took us an hour to get into our room. HOWEVER, they comped us drinks, "resort fee", and reduced our room rate. So, they really made...

This Hotel had a great location. It was in walking distance to plenty of restaurants, shopping, ski rentals, and the bus service to Ski Santa Fe mountain. The rooms were clean and nice. The staff was helpful and the design of the hotel is what you would want to see when you stay in Santa Fe.

We stayed at the El Dorado one night. It is a very nice hotel close to the Georgia O' Keefe museum and a short walk to the Plaza. The room was very nice and the hotel was modern and upscale. The Lobby was very welcoming to sit and talk. We would recommend this hotel.

Convenient location and within short walking distance to the plaza. Restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Georgia O'Keeffe museum across the road from the back of the hotel. Also within walking distance to the Railyard for more restaurants and the Rail Runner to Santa Fe. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was small and the only negative...

Beautiful building, spotless rooms, comfortable beds, very helpful staff. Rooms on upper floors come with a view (mine was the town center and the mountains). Front desk arranges the shuttle to Albuquerque airport, if you need that. Three minutes' walk to the center of Santa Fe Georgia O'Keefe museum around the corner

Awesome visit to Santa Fe. Stayed at the El Dorado Hotel and Spa. Great location couple blocks from the square..... centrally located near the railroad market as well. Spa was booked.....make reservations early upon arrival. Excellent restaurant and breakfast included in rate. Highly recommend Hotel and Santa Fe experience.

The El Dorado is is a great location. The historic plaza is a 5 minute walk away, an the hotel is easy to reach from the highway or the airport. Nice rooms, two bars and a nice restaurant. A surprisingly well equipped gym on the fifth floor, and a pool on the roof with great views of Santa Fe and...
