A treasure in Taos.Posted Aug 17, 2013
Pros: Not only are the grounds and the facility spectacular, but the restaurant serves delicious meals. (We had both dinner and breakfast there.)
Cons: Nothing that we noticed.
Location: The hotel is several blocks from the Taos plaza, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.
My husband and I enjoyed one night in this beautiful hotel/resort. On the morning after we arrived, we took advantage of their lovely pools and hot tub, the spa, and the charming upstairs library. A wonderful experience!

beautiful groundsPosted Aug 8, 2013
Pros: Beautfiul grounds, good location
Cons: Staff can be more friendly, helpful and responsive.
Location: We enjoyed the Taos Pueblo.
The location of the hotel was walking distance from town and the hotel provides shuttle service if you are not up for the walk. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the room was very nice. The room was modern with an open wall between the bathroom and the bed, which we are not fans of. We were disappointed that the staff was not very friendly or helpful.

Good looking hotelPosted Jul 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great hotel but the location is about a mile from downtown Taos and the neighborhood doesn't look real nice.

Very nice, but...Posted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was both lovely and a little chintzy. One day before our stay we got a message that there was a problem with our booking. They first offered to move us to another hotel and pay the extra price -- but El Monte Sagrado is the most expensive hotel in Taos, so that wasn't offering much. I explained that I had the reservation for four months, and after a long hold they offered us a two-bedroom suite instead, for the price of one of the two rooms we had originally reserved (we are a family of 5.) The room was lovely, even Starbucks coffee and tea for the coffee maker, but you have to pay per day for internet. We ate at the hotel bar the first night, which was quite nice but certainly pricey and you paid for even bread if you asked for it. We were able to park the car in the lot, but valet parking (not even 50 feet from the self-park spots) was an additional cost per day. Had we paid the rate for the two rooms we originally reserved, we would have felt strongly that the hotel was over-priced. As we had one lovely room, it worked out fine. The staff was helpful, answered our tourist questions, but made us felt just a little as if we were an imposition. So a lovely stay, but with hesitations.

First, I'd like to say that the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, so this review is mostly about their policies more than it is about their service. I travel a lot, and I find myself surprised when hotels in the US STILL charge for internet service. Not only do they charge per room, they also charge per device that is connected. Also, this hotel states they are pet friendly. They are, but the fee is almost as much as one night at the hotel was. I'm aware most hotels that allow pets have an associated fee, and most of them clearly state this online...however, this one is not listed online. The charge is for "deep cleaning" of each room after the pet is gone. The only problem with that, is that I was not a given a receipt for what exactly "deep cleaning" entails. Not only that, but in 3 days of staying there, I did not see any additional cleaning devices besides the standard carts at any time. For a hotel of this nature, I felt as though I was being charged for small things here and there, which all add up. While the facility is awesome and the location is nice, I think next time I may just save my money and stay at a Holiday Inn...no access to a spa-like setting or massages, but at least I know what I'll be paying for up front.

El Monte SegratoPosted Jun 30, 2013
Pros: Almost everything!
Cons: Needed a table and chairs in the room, or a dressing table etc. near the windows because the light was low. Lighting could be improved.
Location: near art galleries, museums, golf, rafting, fishing.
Close to Historic center of Taos; beautiful grounds. Reminded me of the Beverly Hills Hotel! with a western motif. It was a nice quiet place, but you could walk to town.
