The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Our room was huge and beautiful. I could have easily stayed for days. My only complaint is that the pool is adults only from 9 pm to 11 pm. My son wanted to take a dip after a long road trip and we were told we had to leave the pool area. It was a...

I was impressed from the moment we walked in the door, both by the ambience and cleanliness of the hotel. Front desk staff was extremely friendly and room was fantastic! Beds were super comfy for a great nights sleep. When in Santa Fe, we will definitely stay here again!

THIS IS NOT ACCEPTIBLE. My credit card should not leave my sight. Other people in my group had to repeatedly get new door keys as the...

Dear ggalbreth, Thank you for taking the time to share comments on your recent stay at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. I was disappointed, however not surprised upon hearing your comments on the slow check in upon your arrival. You are correct in stating that our computer system was not operational and was in fact down for almost three days....

The hotel reeked of cigarette smoke!! The computers where down upon check in which delayed us. Then they changed out the locks while we were still in the room. Then we couldn't get back in to the room without having to go get new keys from the front desk. The whole stay seemed chaotic and just down right stinky! From...

We stayed at this resort over a week-end. We had our 9 year old granddaughter. This resort has something for everyone. We would have really enjoyed this place as a couple. They have several restaurants, spa, golf course, casino, outdoor pool, indoor pool. We used the indoor pool. It was a week-end and very crowded but a nice pool all...

Went early so we could eat in the restaurant Red Sage before the performance. Decided to sit in the bar area which wasn't as crowded as the dining area. Good decision! Our bartenders took great care of us with bar service and food. I cannot remember exactly what we ate but we both thought it was good and we left...
