    Luxurious and Convenient to Town Square!


    We booked the junior suite at Hotel Plaza Real, which provided us a cozy sitting room with sofa, side and coffee tables, desk, tv and fireplace (which was prepared each evening by a member of the hotel staff), refrigerator, coffeemaker, King size down covered bed and small bathroom.

    The hotel has 44 suites and 12 guestrooms, each with a southwest decor. After checking in at the lobby, the rooms are accessed by a courtyard which extends between the two story structure.

    The lobby has a warm, colorful Mexican tile floor and comfortable seating area wisely stationed by the rustic fireplace.

    A lounge is located off the lobby, where one can get hot cocoa, glass of wine or a margarita. The hotel does not have a dining area, but next door is the luxurious Inn of the Anasazi where you can have a luscious breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    Hotel Plaza Real was only a block from the central plaza alongwhich many shops, restaurants, museums and galleries were located. We highly recommend this hotel for its amenities and its convenient location!! It snowed and got a bit icy on one of the days we visited, which did not affect our plans in the least since everything we wanted to see was within this area.

    Additional pictures show the junior suite with sitting room, courtyard and lobby area.

    Unique Quality: Lovely southwest decor with warm colors and comfy amenities

More about Hotel Plaza Real

A Gourmet's Delight

by VeronicaG about The Inn Of The Anasazi

The Inn of the Anasazi has an excellent restaurant called appropriately 'Anasazi'. A wonderfully light french toast topped with fruit and a sweet, flavorful syrup started my day beautifully, while a hearty pork tenderloin dinner at the end of our visit seemed to melt in my mouth! Highly acclaimed chef, Martin Rios, specializes in 'Southwest/Asian cuisine with a French influence'.

The Inn was located directly next to the Hotel Plaza Real, where we lodged. Our hotel did not have a dining area, so we found it extremely convenient to dine at the Anasazi. Especially one evening, when it had snowed all day and we did not want to drive anywhere on icy roads.

The restaurant was dimly lit by beautiful wrought iron sconces, the tables covered in sparkling white linen, the room cozied up by thick beamed ceilings and warm wood floors. The service was courteous and very attentive.

The Inn of the Anasazi is a four star hotel located a block or so from the central plaza.

Karaoke at the Plaza Real!

by A TripAdvisor Member

The best thing about Santa Fe's Hotel Plaza Real is the location, just half a block off the plaza. The worst thing was the karaoke singing (loudly miked) that continued until midnight both the Friday and Saturday nights we were there. We booked on Priceline, which could be the reason our room was the closest to the lobby and "musical" bar. We asked to be moved, but while the staff person at the front desk was sympathetic, he said there were no rooms for us to move to. He suggested we call down if the music got too loud and request that they quiet down. We chose to stay up the second night until the music stopped. As someone else said, the room was dark and, I would add, more "funky" than upscale. The fire in the lobby looked and smelled wonderful. But if you choose this hotel, either ask for a room far from the lobby, or don't go over a Friday and Saturday. (The bar was silent on Thursday and Sunday of our four-day stay.)

Great Location and A Good, Small Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Vicarina

Hotel Plaza Real is a charming,small hotel less than a block from the plaza. It has plenty of Santa Fe charm in the decor and the staff is accommodating. Our room, which was a junior suite, was pleasant although the bathroom was quite small. There is a casual bar off the lobby but no restaurant on the premises. This isn't a problem, however, because the hotel is surrounded by great places to eat. The very best thing about this pleasant little place is the convenient location for less than half the price of its next door neighbor, swanky Inn of the Anasazi.

Great Location!!

by TripAdvisor Member Bigmac40

You can't beat the location of the Plaza Real. You can easily walk to all the bars and shops surrounding the plaza.
The rooms are very nice but not five star. We stayed in room 304 which is one of their presidential suites. It was only an extra $30 over the price of the jr suite. The room was great but the kitchen needed to be updated. The mini fridge has to be twenty years old. It struggeled to keep a six pack cold.
All in all you will be happy here because who spends that much time in your room.

If convenience is enough, you don't care for ambiance, and small is OK

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Plaza's chief asset is it's location, only steps away from the Plaza. The room was a "deluxe suite." Booked through Travelocity, it was about $875 for four days, including taxes. Parking is an additional $12 per day. I would recommend opting for it as it wiould cost you that much at public lots.

The Deluxe Suite is advertised at having 650 sq. ft .However, the room felt small and cramped. The bathroom was tiny and in need of updating. I confirmed at the desk that we were indeed in a Deluxe Suite as I was unable to locate around 250 of the 650 sq. ft.

The lobby was small and not the kind of place you might want to linger or read a magazine. The bar and the lobby were devoid of ambiance. They had a sterile quality about them. They were clean and neat, as was the room, but uninviting. The staff was helpful when asked.

I think one can do better for the money. On the other hand, if you want to be very near the Plaza, then this place might meet your needs. For us, by day four we couldn't wait to find more suitable quarters that offered a better taste of the Southwest.

SImply put, the Plaza Real suffers from pervasive ordinariness.

Complete satisfaction

by A TripAdvisor Member

It was excellent! The bed was perfect. The room size was generous. The staff was courteous and accomodating. The view was grand and the location was perfect. The only negative was the bar which was grossly overpriced and the staff quite ... rough round the edges and crude, which was unfortunate for the comfortable atmosphere of the place. A $50 bought 3 drinks with $3.00 change.I will return for certain but will avoid the bar.

Ask for room #110-All Rooms-Wireless In-Room HighSpeed!

by TripAdvisor Member tvsullivan

This is our 3rd stay at this Hotel. This hotel is in a great location and the price is the best on the Plaza you will find. We paid $129.00 for a Junior Suite and were up graded to a Deluxe King Suite- ASK for #110

This Hotel is in need of updating!!! The first room they put us in had not been updated- the first & second time we stayed here it was dingy and dreary- but we come every year with a group and don't have any choice about where we stay. But I learned that if you nicely ask they will change your room,

The in-room wireless highspeed is not advertised and this was a special surprise- especially since I have and old Mac.

I think this hotel is a great location and the hotel knows they will always be booked so they don't spend any money on updating-The pillows are way too soft- there is a fridge in each room which is nice and the coffee pot is horrible- it is a one cup maker without a pot-But they do have complimentry coffee in the lobby- Bring your own Booze the bar is pricey-Hope all this helped! Book directly thru the hotel!

Booked this hotel based on the recommendation of family. Couldn't have been more pleased. We booked a "deluxe" room (#200) for 129.00 and were pleased to find a king sized bed, fireplace, couch, and a large bathroom. The room had two large closets and a wet bar. But what really makes this hotel so pleasant is that it is literally within walking distance for everything Santa Fe and The Plaza area has to offer. We spent two days walking through shops and art galleries and only caught 1/3 of the shops. There was entertainment in the plaza nightly and having the hotel so close was great for mid-day naps. Room does offer wireless, but connections were spotty. All in all a great buy.
