I wasn't sure how the stay would be as there were mixed reviews when I was investigating where to stay.
Well the place appears to be in the process of being refurbished as some rooms are being worked on.
We are a party of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenage grandkids. I got the basic room. I chose this because of the proximity to the Plaza and the price was so great.
As it turns out everything is new or nearly new. We have a huge bedroom with a nice living room, dinette, small kitchen fully stocked with everything necessary for cooking.
The Plaza is maybe a 7 minute walk. There is shuttle service to wherever one needs to go within a radius but the walk is really nice. The Santa Fe School of Cooking that we will go to is also within walking distance as are grocery stores.
We needed extra blankets and had them within minutes.
I highly recommend the Villas to anyone and we will stay here again.

We had heard Canyon Road in Santa Fe and had to make a token visit even though we were out of time. ...

... up to be beautiful. We put our names in at Pasquale's Restaurant and the wait was well over an hour. Our chilies, burritos, and trout w/ eggs were all worth it. We then joined Keith's friends over at Cowgirl's Saloon where we watched the sunny day turn to rain over Bloody Mary's and Marias. On the way home we shopped for ...
... history of New Mexico - really and truly interesting. This is a wild part of the world, or was. True frontier country, cowboys and Indians etc! It became a state of the IS in 1912, but had been an area of dispute amongst Indians, Spanish missionaries and soldiers, later Mexicans (once Mexico was independent of Spain) and Americans, who fought with the Mexicans to have it as part of the US! And a stage for the Wild West - Billy the Kid country. So lots ...
... died when Route 66 did, and took a few photos of murals & tourist spots then we had to divert to Santa Fe (on the way to Vegas which technically isn't original Route 66) so we had to stick to the interstate roads. When arriving at the hotel we had a little down time then went for a quick swim. We had a few drinks while getting ready then got a taxi down to the 'Plaza' area. Having a little shop we ...
