    I enjoyed my stay at the Don Fernando De Taos


    After reading many reviews of this hotel on other travel sites I really was not sure what to expect. I was plesantly surprised. The room we had was very spacious, clean and sufficient. The hotels grounds were kept very nice. All rooms are accessed from the outside, it's like staying in your own little apartment with nice landscaping and pathways outside of your door.
    The hotel has in room coffee, lotion, shampoo. Television w/cable.

    Unique Quality: The pool is large and indoors but with glass covering it so it's like being outdoors. There is also a hot tub. The lobby area is very nice and there is no longer a regular restaurant but there is a hotel bar that opens at 6 p.m. that serves a limited food menu, like pizza, etc. On Friday evenings there is music in the bar. The continental breakfast was great, I thought. It offered everything one would need for breakfast. Hard boiled eggs, milk, cereal, apples, bagels, toast, orange juice and coffee, muffins and pastries. Served in a large eating area, it was never over crowded or busy. I thought this hotel was great and for the price, it could not be beat!

    Directions: South of Main Street. About 2 miles south of the Plaza.

    Great place - Great Stay


    This is a former Holiday Inn. We had a suite for $70 (five years ago). There is a fireplace in the main room and a small refrigerator.
    The pool is covered but still outdoors. It is a good size pool and is very lovely in the evening with the lights glowing in the water.
    There is a very nice gathering area around the pool.
    We thought it was a great family place to stay in the summer and I'm sure skiers enjoy it too with the doors opening right by the area to park the car. I would stay there again.

    Unique Quality: Great pool and plenty of room to sit together around the fire in our suite.

More about Don Fernando de Taos

Taos - From Fortified Plaza to Artists' Colony

by AlbuqRay

Taos (from Don Fernando de Taos) was established between 1780 and 1800. It was originally constructed as a Spanish fortified plaza ringed by low adobe buildings. To say the least, this must have made for an interesting dynamic with the long established Taos Pueblo, which is just 2.5 miles away. Even so, it was certainly different from the Jemez Pueblo, where the Spanish made the Jemez Indians move down the valley and took the best spot (now Jemez Springs) for themselves. Also vastly different from Cusco, where they conquered the Incas, tore down their structures and built on their foundations.

The town grew and became an important center for trade on the Santa Fe Trail. Taos became noted as an artists' colony in the late 19th century and retains that influence and charm to this day. Parking can be a problem but you may use the walking map to find your way around. Don't miss the John Dunn House Shops, a quaint area just northeast of the Plaza. You may eat at Ogilvie's and overlook the Plaza.
