The rooms have a rustic charm and furniture was in good condition however the bathrooms really need updating. There are two heating controls in the bathroom, which back in the '70's were probably the height of luxury but they are now just old and strange.
TV is placed such that you can only view from awkward angle from the bed.
Heat/fan is extremely loud and noisy. Beds were actually pretty comfortable. The pull-out sofa was pretty "springy" but hey, it's a pull-out. It could have used a mattress pad for sure.
Room seemed pretty clean but then, earthtones and dim lighting hide a multitide of sins. We found several bugs in the room and unfortunately one of them (that I know of) even made it home with us in a backpack. Ew!
Beware of the $10/day housekeeping that is tacked on to your bill - we asked to have this removed for two reasons: First, I don't think I should have to pay $10 for the night I checked in, as no housekeeping services were rendered (they certainly didn't clean after I checked in at 5pm and there was no turn down service!) Second, when I did make a housekeeping request, for extra towels, they never came. I still left a small gratuity for what little housekeeping I received but the front desk removed the daily fees.
There was also a "portage" fee added to our bill. We never had any items delivered or bags carried to our room so I don't know what this was. The front desk offered no explanation but they did remove the charge.
The daily $29 resort fee is another fee required whether you use the amenities or not.
Secure your valuables, as someone in our group had items stolen from their room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In August of 1851, a Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Lamy, arrived in the NM Territory as the first Bishop of Santa Fe. Here he built a private retreat; his chapel still stands today, now on the national register of historic places. After Lamy's Death, the land was acquired by the Pulitzer publishing family as a private vacation retreat. In 1917, the Thorpe family from Denver fell in love with these pristine acres, bought the property and developed the first resort in the state. Today Bishop's Lodge comprises 15 lodges for a total of 110 rooms ranging in sizes from 250 sq feet to 450, not to mention a 2000 sq foot Presidential Suite. Many of our rooms feature fireplaces and the majority all have outdoor access to patios, lawns or balconies. Our ShaNah Spa and Wellness Center which opened up in June of 2002 is a sanctuary where one can take time out to be nurtured by Mother Nature, guided by ancient wisdon and touched by angels. The experience may change your life. Other activities are abundant such as: trap/skeet shooting (offered to groups of 10 or monmre roomnights), horseback, pony trail rides, hiking, mountain biking, fitness center, excercise studio, outdoor pool, whirlpool and tennis to mention a few. Bishop's Lodge is located just 3 miles from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. Complimentary shuttle service is provided by the lodge at scheduled times daily. ... more less
