Lovely Christmas in Santa Fe
Posted Dec 28, 2016
Our stay at the Eldorado was overall pretty great, but it really had the benefit of being a holiday season. Everything was decorated for the holiday, everyone was in a cheerful mood, the weather was perfect, and it is a nice hotel. However, the town was overrun with tourists, so everything was busy. We weren't able to get a reservation for brunch at the hotel on Christmas morning a week in advance because they were already sold out. We looked around and found several excellent restaurants that were serving. In the end we were glad: when we tried to eat breakfast in the hotel on a non-holiday morning the service was non-existent. We left after a 1/2 hour. Our room's window was stuck open a bit, which was OK with heating until Christmas morning when it snowed. We did enjoy the cocktail lounge and new open area bar, which had live music playing in the evening. Mostly we loved that everything was within walking distance.
