Our room, number 7 in the second building, had a bedroom with double bed, a spacious bathroom, and a generous combination kitchen/sitting area with a microwave oven, fridge and coffee maker. The sitting area also had a sofa that could be pulled out for another bed. Like all pull out sofas, it’s not the best place to sleep, but it worked well for the lightest person on our trip. Of course, other than using the pull out and shoving some water bottles into the freezer, we didn’t actually use any of this equipment… but we could have. Décor was slightly, but not overpoweringly southwestern.
Breakfast is served in the main house. Breakfast usually consisted of coffee cake, fruit, some sort of southwestern style egg dish, granola, bacon, pancakes (with, believe it or not, a super cranberry-maple syrup!), juices and coffee. We might have found the half a block walk to breakfast inconvenient if it was raining or snowing, but on a bright sunny morning it was a fine way to start the day.
Rooms 1 through 3 in the main house might have problems since they adjoin the kitchen and breakfast area. Anyone interested in sleeping late would have a problem with general noise. Room 4 in the main house has a separate entrance.
The rate for the three of us in unit 7 was $98 plus tax per night. It's well situated, only a short walk from the Plaza, museums and shopping.
