The Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder combines the best of modern amenities with the beauty and history of the area. 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 9-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 Cafe, which serves locally inspired meals three times a day.

TZoo provided great offer...have seen deal at least a couple of times previously. I took the bait and will continue to look for another Hilton Buffalo deal. Right off the main drag was also another plus which is why I gave 5 stars for location.

One need not go anywhere else after check in....restaurants, spa, cantina, fitness, gifts, art gallery, casino ----all under one roof. Would like to know nearby hiking/walking trails nearby for next time...I would be so content.

every time I come here they always mess up the receipt at the end, they never take the breakfast off the tab which comes free with this promotion and I always have to call them for a credit, Additionally my friend booked a room through Hilton and got the same rate with a free breakfast and got points and a better room than I did. Last time I book thru Travel Zoo

Hope they keep doing this promotion. We use it every time they offer it. The place was spotless this visit. Lovely to see you keeping the place in good shape. We will be back.

I absolutely love Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. This is our third time there and we want to make it a family tradition. The general hotel staff is second to none. An especial shout-out to Sarah at the reservations desk who made us feel like we were the only people in her world. Three of us had fantastic experiences at the spa. My particular masseuse requiring special mention was Lisa.
Other Comments
The dining experiences at the hotel are sometimes incongruent with the general positive service level throughout the rest of the hotel facilities. At breakfast in the Iguana (where the food and selection are DELECTABLE, by the way), most hostesses/servers were great, but there was one hostess who was grumpy about our seating choice. There was also a male server who let our dishes pile up and I waited a loooong time for my omelette - - I don't know his name, but he was sooooo nice that I tipped him anyway! Our dinner at the Red Sage was over the top amazing food, but the service was pretty bad. Our server Thomas did not do things in the correct order (took dinner order before we got our drinks, which we waited for for a long time, dinner also took a long time and was served incompletely, AND he took a long time to check in with us so we could say so). When I expressed slight exasperation at all this, I felt that he copped an attitude for the rest of the meal. The hostess, whose name I don't know, was very unfriendly. But, to reiterate, the food at the Red Sage was AMAZING and I would certainly go there again.
