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.

Small note here: Have been busy or some other convenient excuse, but writing this at a much later date so some of the details are possibly forgotten.
Lisa arrived in Albuquerque and spent her first night there at the Route 66 hostel and then took the Railrunner to Santa Fe. We met her and enjoyed lunch together and ran a few errands and then took her to the Santa Fe Hostel. Robert had been ill with the flu and ...
... architectural forms, has identified the area as "O’Keeffe Country."
She continued painting and working in charcoals and pencils until her eyesight began failing her and she could no longer paint. She died in 1986 at the age of 98.
After my visit I walked back to the Plaza to find the rest of the group. Judy hadn’t surfaced yet, so I wandered among the Native American artists who were displaying ...
Chip announced in exercise class there was a Christmas Eve matinee at the Lensic. Decided to go enjoy some culture and rode the bus downtown. When we walked up to the ticket window to purchase tickets, a woman came up and said she had two tickets that were not going to be used and would we like them. Sure.
Very enjoyable concert. Because it was a matinee, many people had brought children in hopes of introducing them to ...
