Hotel Cheval Review

Equestrian themes surface throughout this intimate, European-style inn a half-block from the main square and near some of Paso's best restaurants. Each of the 16 spacious rooms is named after a famous racehorse (its history and picture hang on the wall) and includes custom European contemporary furnishings, king beds with exquisite linens and comforters, and original works of art. Most rooms have fireplaces and window seats; some have vaulted cedar ceilings. At the on-site Pony Club, you can sip local and international wines and champagne at the horseshoe-shape zinc bar.
