Homewood Suites Santa Fe
Travel Blogs from Santa Fe
... 1829, just eight years after Mexico had gained independence from Spain, Antonio Armijo led a caravan of 60 men and 100 pack mules from what we call Santa Fe, the then provincial capital of New Mexico, to the Mission San Gabriel in California, east of Los Angeles. The journey took about 12 weeks to reach California and six weeks to return.
They were following part of the route established by the 1776 Dominguez - Escalante Expedition. That early group had taken ...

What were weren't fully prepared for was how much work it would be to backpack with kids. While both boys were totally game to carry their own backpack, there is only so much weight 65 pound kids can bear! This resulted in almost comical loads for the adults for the first couple of days, and a serious route adjustment once we descended into the gulch. Shortening ...

New Mexico was a great experience, I am currently writing in hindsight on my way to Nevada desert. I have a lot of catching up to do and have done a lot since my last blog, so I will continue the trip from the heart of the west. To all of you who do not know what Mesa Verde is, it is a national park located in south east New Mexico. Some 800 to 1000 years ago, the 'Navajo' people lived in a small part of this national park, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites Santa Fe
We extended our stay!
We enjoyed the room, facilities and location enough that we extended our stay from 3 to 4 nights. The staff is generous of their time and knowledge ands tried to answer all of our questions about the choices of daytrips which are numerous from this location. I recommend it for both family stays and if you are just trying to get away. The breakfast included fresh hot choices and the normal pastries, breads, cereal and fruit. We chose it from the Trip Advisor reviews and all the posts were totally accurate.
We live in NM and were looking for a getaway that would include a little romance. We selected the Homewood Suites because they were near Santa Fe, yet not actually in the City Different. We were booked into the Wije Casita in a one-bedroom, 2 queen suite. The suite was spacious, comfortable, and sparkling clean. It had all the amenities you could hope for--fridge, microwave, kitchenware, on-demand TV. Our room was quiet and had a beautiful view of the golf course and the rolling hills. A very short drive from the hotel is the Towa Golf Course, which is part of the Buffalo Thunder Resort on which the Homewood Suites sits. We went to the cafe at the golf course and had drinks. The bartender was very friendly and professional. The restaurant/lounge was not crowded and the views were awesome. A small number of casino gaming machines were located in the corner. Due to the lateness of the hour, we did not eat at the restaurant. An all-you-care-to-eat breakfast at the hotel was included in the price and was of good quality. Pluses to staying at the Homewood Suites: Not far away is Gabriel's restaurant, which serves excellent Mexican and New Mexican style food. The margaritas and guacamole (made tableside) are perfection--I sincerely doubt there are better anywhere in the region. Near the hotel are two small casinos, Camel Rock and Cities of Gold. There was local entertainment available in the lounges and (primarily) video gaming. A beautiful daytrip is nearby: Bandelier National Monument where ancient Native American dwellings and cliff dwellings can be seen and explored. Our stay at the Homewood Suites was everything we hoped for and more. The beautiful facilities and great location made it easy for us to relax and unwind. This is a great place to spend quality time with someone you love!
Reviews are accurate
I booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, which are entirely accurate. Beautiful hotel in a dramatic location mid-way between Santa Fe and Los Alamos with easy access to both. We were upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite which was enormous.
There is a beautiful lodge where breakfast is served, and a private business centre.
The only drawback if you are staying more than one night is the lack of restaurants in the immediate area. Nevertheless, this is a great place to stay.
Love This Hotel!
My friends and I have been staying at the Homewood Suites at Pojoaque Pueblo since it opened. It is quite frankly the best place to stay in the Santa Fe area. I've stayed at numerous places in town and although the Homewood Suites is north of Santa Fe, I will stay there from now on. I was most recently there during Indian Market and it was great to "get away" from the crowds and traffic by going north. Highly recomended.
Nicest New Hotel in Santa Fe Area
My husband and I stayed here on business for 4 nights in late January, and we were not disappointed. This hotel is 1 year old (they had a celebratory 1 year birthday breakfast for all guests one morning) and going strong. Great service, big comfy suites with nice overstuffed beds. Clean and cosy, and free hot breakfast in the morning. Decent coin-operated guest laundry room. Only a 15 minute drive to Santa Fe, or a twenty minute drive to Los Alamos. This is far better than many of the expensive and in some cases crummy Santa Fe hotels near the plaza which charge a fortune. If you are going to the opera in the summer the Homewood Suites would be the place to stay for sure.
Great facility, close to hiking, casinos
I loved our room, the breakfast, the entire facility. You could tell it was darn near brand new. We were there to hike (great hikes nearby) and hit the casinos (no shortage of those around). Santa Fe's only poker room 3 miles down the road, which sold us. Granted, to get back down into Santa Fe, it was quite a drive. For dinner, for instance, it took a good 30 minutes of highway and city driving to get there.
Love this Homewood!!!
I live in the Santa Fe area and my family stayed at Homewood for about a week while our well was being fixed at our home. I have stayed at a number of Homewood's and this Homewood Suites (by Hilton, of course) is by far the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. Not only is the exterior beautiful (adobe style, located on the gorgeous Towa Golf Resort), but the interior is one-of-a-kind. The art-work is all regional and just absolutely stunning. The staff is WONDERFUL and the rooms were so comfortable, we felt right at home! It's also close to two casinos, a 27 hole golf course and LOTS OF GREAT NEW MEXICAN FOOD!! I give this Hotel 110% approval to all who wish to visit the Santa Fe area. If you're looking for comfort, culture and great food, you'll love this hotel.
Great value for the money
Exceeded my expectations. After a terrible experience at another hotel, we moved to Homewood Suites. This is a new hotel that offers wonderful views and very comfortable furnishings.
I love this place and will definitely come back!
Wonderful new facility
We recently traveled through five states and our best experience was at the new Homewood Suites north of Santa Fe. We stayed in a wonderful "casita" which was beautifully decorated. The staff was attentive, and breakfast was wonderful both days. We will definitely stay there if we are lucky enough to return to beautiful and unique Santa Fe!
