My partner and I have traveled extensively around the world, and we have to say that we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Inn of the Turquoise Bear! The room was immaculate and very cozy, with a Kiva that came fully equipped with wood. The Inn keeper was very friendly and even sat down with us for a...

This was my first trip to Santa Fe-- a place I knew relatively little about until my husband recommended us to go on a whim. I am glad we decided to go and what better place to segue into this mystical and sacred treasure trove than to lodge at the Turquoise Bear? I haven't had the full gamut of Bed...

We are so pleased we were able to contribute to making your first trip to Santa Fe an enchanting one! They call this the land of enchantment for good reason. Having traveled extensively professionally before acquiring the Inn I do have a sense that travel isn't always easy or restful. We are very happy we made your visit comfortable and...

We stayed at the Inn for 3 days. Dan, the owner and Alex, the manager were brilliant hosts and were totally focused on you, as the guest, and your needs. Nothing was too much for them. They helped with the planning of your day trips, restaurant recommendations and also they provided ideas about what to see during your time. They...

I am a native New Mexican and have spent lots of time in Santa Fe and never knew about this inn, until my girlfriends picked it for a recent gathering. The location is very close in, but not on top of the historic downtown area. It is walking distance to many interesting galleries, restaurants, markets and coffee places, but the...

We just stayed two nights in the Igor Stravinsky room and could not be more pleased. The Inn has a great history, wonderfully convenient location, and fabulous atmosphere. The Innkeepers maintain a welcoming atmosphere around the clock, from individually prepared gourmet breakfasts complimentary wine in the evening, served in an absolutely charming lobby/living room. The fireplace in our room was...

My wife and I recently stayed at the inn for a wedding hosted there and were delighted by the historical character and hospitality. We stayed in the DH Lawrence room and found it well-appointed. Our wedding party was well accommodated, and it was fun going to their different rooms as each was unique and told a different story. Dan and...

We stayed in the room that shares a bathroom, the sharing of the bathroom not an issue. The inn provides you with robes and we never heard our neighbor. There were several features we loved. It's walking distance to downtown. We went to three museums, needed a change from the mountains. We will be back to Santa Fe to climb...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Turquoise Bear for four nights. We were so happy to have the charming Stravinsky room. It had it's own entrance, and was very quiet and comfortable.

This is a charming historical property. Breakfasts are served around a large table in a beautiful dining room. Coffee and tea are available early and breakfast is plentiful and tasty.
