Fodor's Expert Review Casa de Tres Lunas

711 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501, USA See on Map

Set in a characterful early 1900s adobe house on the eastern edge of Downtown, this cozy inn with a tasteful mix of antiques and upscale contemporary furnishings has a fantastic setting steps from local attractions and many of the city's best restaurants. One of the best features is the expansive courtyard, which is both quiet and shaded by trees. A number of free add-ons are included, including HBO Premium, passes good at four prominent Downtown museums, and in-room concierge tablets configured to help you make the most of your visit in town.


The good-size rooms (a minimum of 260 square feet and some are much larger) are outfitted with luxury linens, flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, microwaves, and--in most cases--kiva fireplaces. Although you'll find a smattering of Southwestern accents, the decor is less cluttered and both more contemporary and international than what's typical a many smaller Santa Fe properties. A couple of larger suites have full, well-stocked kitchens and dining areas.

YOU SHOULD KNOW To use your wood-burning fireplace during your stay, there's a $25 charge, which includes pinon firewood, preparation, and clean-up.


The bathrooms are generally on the simple side, and vary a bit in size and configuration depending on the unit, but you can expect plush linens, tasteful furnishings, and soft robes.


Although the inn has an extensive courtyard that makes for an inviting common space in summer, there's no lobby or interior common spaces.


There's no spa, but in-room 60-minute massages can be arranged for $120.


There's no restaurant on-site, but suites are furnished with a basket of light snacks and also some beverages and breakfast items in the refrigerators. Larger units have kitchens.


There's no bar, but rooms all have refrigerators at a minimum and kitchens in many cases, and a stay here includes membership with the wine club at La Casa Sena and Rio Chama restaurants, which entitles you to retail prices when ordering from the wine list at either spot.


Getting Around

A car isn't a necessity at this small inn on the eastern edge of Downtown, as both the Plaza and Canyon Road's galleries and shops are within a short walk, but if you do have wheels, there's free parking. Uber and cabs are easy to find in Santa Fe and helpful for longer trips, as public transit is very limited here.


Convivial La Boca (5-minute walk) serves sophisticated Spanish and Mediterranean fare, both classics like paella and delicious hot and cold tapas. There's an extensive list of Spanish wines and sherries. Contemporary, upscale Geronimo (15-minute walk) is set in a stunning mid-18th-century house amid the many art galleries on Canyon Road. The dishes here, from sweet corn–lobster crepes to tellicherry-rubbed elk tenderloin, are themselves works of art.


The award-winning mixologists at Secreto Lounge (10-minute walk) create some of the most interesting and colorful cocktails in town, and the adjoining portal is a grand spot on a summer evening to sip your drink. Stop by Del Charro Saloon (10-minute walk) for the exceptional margaritas and a good list of local beers; the tasty bar food here is available late, too.


It's hard to tell your in bustling downtown Santa Fe when relaxing in the large and peaceful courtyard or inside any of the thick-walled adobe rooms and suites in this cozy and elegant inn. Service is top-notch here, and the innkeepers provide all sorts of little extras, from free museum passes to "woof welcome baskets" in the two pet-friendly rooms.
