Santa Fe's Diverse Bed and Breakfasts Await Travelers



Are you a bed and breakfast person? Santa Fe has a selection for you to choose from including ones close to the Plaza. There are even options out in the country if you prefer getting out of the hustle and bustle of town. As many bed and breakfasts occupy former homes, rooms will differ greatly. Some of these small, intimate lodgings are luxurious, some more basic and some are in-between. One of the pluses of small properties is that the person who answers the phone when you call knows the property well. With the right qualifying questions you can make sure it’s the right place for you. What’s important to you? Whether the number of rooms, room size, quality of the WiFi, closet space, view, breakfast, afternoon reception, bathroom size and amenities, location, outdoor space or even a place you can bring your dog, make sure to ask. Each bed and breakfast has a unique ambiance and character. They don’t all work for every guest. Just read the range of reviews online. One person’s paradise is another’s hell. Also, make sure to ask about the cancellation policy and payment methods accepted. Armed with answers to all of your concerns, you can choose the Santa Fe bed and breakfast that’s best for you. Want something bigger than a B & B that includes breakfast and is staffed 24-hours a day? Check out the luxe Inn of the Five Graces, the unique Las Palomas or the value-added Inn of the Governors.
