The Inn and Spa at Loretto is a historic property and beautiful haven of relaxation and restoration, originally built in 1878 and redesigned in 2008. The Inn has a sophisticated slightly pristine ambience (the former sight of the Sisters of Loretto Girls School) blended with Southwestern charm.
The hotel's solicitous service begins at curbside—Scott, the car valet, voluntarily brought my luggage to the room immediately and repeated his mantra “I’m here for you always”.
Our earth toned, Superior King room featured a candle lit kiva fireplace, handpainted wall border, traditionally designed club chairs, oversized carved wood furniture, massive ornate wall mirrors, a four poster bed and a lush view of evergreens from our French doors opening onto a shared dining patio lit by electric luminarias—magical views at night!
Guest amenities are superior —I enjoyed a wonderfully restful night in a great bed with luxurious microfibre linens and even your pooch's well being is considered—an orthopedic sheepskin pet bed is provided.
The hotel's dining options are the popular restaurant, Luminaria —dishes include fresh herbs from the hotel's garden, organic ingredients and local produce and The Living Room (pet friendly dining) with access to the full restaurant menu.
The presentation and excellence of the room service breakfast made the $30 bill (oatmeal, grapefruit juice, coffee ,eggs, potatoes and bacon) palatable.
Valet Parking is $20 (the only option available) per night in this convenient downtown location, however the fee is waived if driving a hybrid or eco-friendly car. The Inn is the only Green Key Level 4 certified hotel in Santa Fe.
A full service spa offers a unique and tantalizing menu of services including cranial sacral massage and chakra balancing.
The famous Loretto Chapel, built in 1878, is adjacent to the hotel and is also a museum that hosts hundreds of weddings annually.
Pet fee is $20 daily per room.
