Mindy Mills, the manager of the Water Street Inn, prides herself on the customer service that she and her staff provide to her customers, and from our stay at the Water Street Inn in the Galisteo Suite, I can’t argue with her. From the homemade cookies delivered to our room every night to the option of having breakfast in the kitchen, on the deck, or in our own private sundeck, the Water Street Inn catered to all of our needs.
If a breakfast of cinnamon rolls, croissants, and fresh fruit wasn’t enough, the Water Street Inn also hosts an afternoon happy hour with fresh hors d’oeuvres and wine. Not only was this a great time to snack after a long day of hiking, it was a great opportunity to trade stories and travel tips with the other guests.
The Water Street Inn has eight rooms in the main building, and three suites located in a separate building. Rates range from $100 for a room in the low season to $225 for a suite in the high season. Detailed rate information can be found at www.waterstreetinn.com. All the rooms are uniquely decorated, and our suite, the Galisteo Suite, was beautifully furnished with New Mexican art surrounding a four-post pine bed. Every room/suite at the inn has its own set of luxuries, including fireplaces, outdoor patios, and sundecks, so be sure to check out the individual room descriptions on their webpage. Other amenities included private voice mail, modem dial-up service, and a hot tub. If you do fall in love with your room and want to hang out there all night, the Water Street Inn also provides a video library from which guests can choose(for a fee).
Located within walking distance of the Santa Fe Plaza, the Water Street Inn is a great place to stay and be pampered.
