Alexander's Inn

529 E Palace Avenue , Santa Fe, NM 87501 USA (Show map)


Alexander’s Inn has recently evolved from a Bed & Breakfast to a unique and much smaller operation. We cater to the guest who seeks more than a vacation rental yet prefers the autonomy and privacy not found at other inns. Our traditional Santa Fe casitas, featuring kiva fireplaces, New Mexican furnishings and décor, full kitchens and patios, are perfectly suited for family vacations or romantic holidays. The Cottage and Casita offer full breakfast options at The Hacienda Nicholas, while The Pinon and Juniper Casas are vacation rental style accommodations. As members of The Green Hotels Association, we are committed to incorporating sustainable earth policies and practices in the running of our inns, vacation rentals and the spa.Guests rave about our heavenly beds, made up with fine linens, down comforters and feather pillows. For your utmost comfort and convenience, we provide daily maid service, luxuriously soft robes, phones, wireless internet, cable TV, DVD & CD players and air conditioning. Also available is a guest membership at the full-service El Gancho Health Club. Enjoy our spa, located just a few blocks away. Absolute Nirvana Spa, selected by Conde Nast Traveler as "One of the Hottest New Spas in the World", features therapeutic, deep-tissue, hot stone and Thai massage, as well as a selection of facials and spa treatments.

Santa Fe Getaway

5 on September 02, 2008

we loved staying at the Madeleine house in Santa Fe. We were able to walk all of Santa Fe from the inn location. Staff couldn't have been nicer and more accomodating to our needs. Our room was romantic and charming. We loved the fact that the inn is so enviornmentally conscious.

A Wonderful Bed & Breakfast

5 on January 08, 2007

If you want to experience the heart and soul of Santa Fe this is the place to stay. We lodged in the Casita, a romantic feel, with a fireplace and spiral staircase. All details revealed an aesthetic appeal and lend beauty to your surroundings. Also delightful are the congenial people who work there including the owner, Carolyn. Each one adds character and care to the ambience. Assistance was provided in a multitude of kind and serviceable ways especially evident when the unforeseen Christmas snowstorm fell. I highly recommend giving them an immediate call to see if you are lucky enough to find a room.

Look out onto the treetops from this airy upstairs room. Your comfortable queen bed with its quilted comforter sits on a lovely white frame. Light streams through the lace curtains from three windows, which you can open to catch the Santa Fe breeze.

Our only accommodation with twin beds, this room has a special welcoming ambiance. Notice the wildflower motif in the wallpaper and the matching quilts on the beds.

Just down the hall, the large shared bath has double sinks, a huge skylight, and lovely tiled shower with a morning glory pattern.

Enjoy a soothing view of our gardens from this quiet room. Before you snuggle into your four-poster queen bed, you might want to sit in the overstuffed chairs and glance through all the material about Santa Fe you'll find on the table beneath your windows. Beth Silverman's painting, Lavender Field Province, adds to the floral theme. Your private, modern bath is just across the hall.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2


From the roses on the comforter over your queen bed to the framed still life with roses that hangs above, you'll know you're in the Rose room. Large wooden-framed windows with classic gauze curtains look out onto the garden. Or step outside and enjoy Santa Fe's beautiful evenings or sparkling mornings on your very own deck. This beautiful downstairs room has a private modern bath.

A comfortable four poster bed with a lovely blue spread welcomes you to this large downstairs room. Notice the blue ceiling above you in beautiful contrast to the simple white walls. Relax in our overstuffed chairs before your own fireplace. The stained glass windows give the Lilac Room a special ambiance.
