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.

Great place to stay in Santa Fe

4.4 on November 12, 2017

The owner is wonderful and right there at breakfast to make sure everyone feels welcome and gets a great breakfast. Also, very helpful with recommendations of hikes and things to do. I would definitely stay here again. The location was also within easy walking distance of the historic downtown.

Another Great Stay

This B&B is the our favorite in Santa Fe. The Victorian style house is fantastic as is the fresh, daily baked cookies. The owner Carolyn and staff have always made us feel like family. The food is the best around. The evening social get together is always wonderful. We have met SO many great people from around the world. A short walk to the Plaza and a wonderful environment.

Best in Santa Fe

Wonderful property, wonderful people in a wonderful town---what more could one ask? We stayed at Hacienda Nicholas for five days in September--our third stay with Carolyn, Marilee, and Regan! We were delighted to reacquaint and enjoy their company. All of them were knowledgeable and ready to help with whatever one might need. There are many properties in Santa Fe, but none better than this¿¿

Another great stay!!

Another great stay at Hacienda Nicholas!

We have been staying at Hacienda Nicholas for many years. It features a charming and comfortable setting and is a short stroll from the plaza. Off a quiet street which buffers the hustle and bustle of Santa Fe. Great breakfasts and other amenities, a hidden jewel!

Santa Fe Vacay

The whole experience was great!

Excellent home away from home...wonderful retreat as well as place to meet other travelers

3.8 on June 28, 2017

Merrilie and staff made this experience feel like a home away from home. I loved how near the Hacienda Nicholas was to the core of Sante Fe at the same time hidden away, quiet and private. My room was cosy and my experience excellent...plan to return.

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.
