Rooms & Rates

The Hilton Santa Fe Golf Resort & Spa at Buffalo Thunder combines the best of modern amenities with the beauty of the area’s history. Designed in the distinctive Spanish Pueblo style, the pinkish-orange building exterior matches the blazing Southwestern sunsets.

Throughout the interior are distinctive Native American-themed furnishings and art, including a two-story stained-glass window by a local artist and life-size sculptures of traditionally dressed Native Americans. Rooms are similarly designed with carved wooden headboards and furnishings and Southwestern accents.

Gamblers can check out the hotel’s casino with slot machines, table games and poker. Links lovers can try their hand at the golf club, which has three nine-hole courses, a putting green and a driving range. Or unwind at the full-service spa and enjoy a body, face or hair treatment.

The hotel has seven restaurants, including the Iguana Café, which serves locally inspired meals three times a day.

Large rooms, benefits of the special - e.g. breakfast buffet, low rate, bottle of wine.
Other Comments
The rooms are showing their age - e.g. worn and torn furniture, rugs, etc. Also, the resort is about a 30 minute drive from I-25 during heavy traffic time, a bit far for someone traveling as we were.

There is much to enjoy about this facility. The art work and common areas are exceptionally well appointed. Management at this facility should give the front desk/concierge young lady Rhiannon a promotion and keep her. Without her attention to detail and customer focused assistance, I would not have had a good stay. She made the issues experienced tolerable. Many kudos to her. As well, we had Spa services provided by Donna and Lisa - we've had many massages across the states and internationally - we both came away saying that they were the BEST. Management would do well to keep them happy as well as Rhiannon. Rarely do I remember the names of staff but these were exceptional.

Issues that need to be addressed by Hilton: I waited in the room for more than 2 hours for the wine and glasses to be delivered. After 4 phone calls someone did arrive with a hot dusty bottle of Merlot, no glasses, and no bucket of ice to chill it down - needless to say it was never opened. The Red Sage restaurant offered an a nice Valentine's meal of steak and lobster. The steak had an excellent flavor and was done perfect for medium rare; however, the steak was cool, the lobster cold as well as the "butter" and the baked potato was so cold that butter would not melt...due to the late hour, 8:30pm, we said nothing but ate the lobster and steak as it was leaving the potato. For such good flavored food, it was a shame to not be able to enjoy it to its fullest. The chef may not be aware but I enjoy a "hot" meal, not lukewarm and cold.

We stayed here overnight on a business trip, and the room was perfect. The service is extraordinary and we did have a "little" fun at the casino! I will be staying again!
