Great and friendly service. Clean comfortable. Large room beautiful facilities scenic views. Lots of activities. Excellent security.
Everything about this property is awesome, plenty to do and your one-stop destination as you will not need to depart the property for anything if you truly take advantage of all that this hotel has to offer, I would stay again in a heart beat!
Overpriced for amenities
The artwork at the hotel was beautiful. The pottery, paintings, and architecture was amazing. The food was decent. Went to both the cafe and buffet. It was decent.
The spa which was 15$ separate from the room fee was tiny. I didn't book a massage or anything after already paying 181.00 for the room, so I had high hopes that the spa amenities would be worth it. They weren't. The spa was a tiny single hot tub, a tiny sauna that maybe fit three people, and a tiny steam room that maybe fit four. The room I was promised when I booked had a queen size bed plus additional amenities hopefully included. Because I was promised a king size bed, I was hoping the room would also include a balcony and/or fireplace like what is advertised on the website. They put us in a tiny room with two queen beds and a standard bathroom. No amenities that are advertised online or when I booked. It sucked. When I asked the woman at the desk she said no rooms with those anemities were available and that the small queen room was our only option. She said this sort of rudely as well. Won't be coming back.
The decor and the art on the premises is superb! The rooms are spotless.
We reserved a king size bed, but the hotel had things mixed up and gave us a queen.
Worst stay ever
First I would like to start with the fact that I never write a review. But I feel I must after my stay. I requested to have a room change, in which I received a less than pleasant call from the assistant manager. He would not assist me and his snarky and sarcastic tone was the icing on the cake. In the end he would not assist in my request. The room we stayed in was beat up with wallpaper peeling in the bathroom as well as tile falling off the corners. We used the stairs and each time I was shocked at the amount of garbage in the stairwell. One certain time a front desk employee was heading up the stairs the same time as us, looked at the trash and kept moving. We suggested he pick up the used light bulbs discarded and perhaps send someone to pick up. The last complaint I have is the vallet left our car windows open all night. Unfortunately it rained all night and our seats are soaked. With all noted above I would think by staying at a Hilton the customer service and overall cleanliness would be superior. My room was 250 dollars and I have stayed in a Holiday Inn that was far better this.
Shuttle service was very convenient
On site casino, pool and golf course. There was a shuttle that ran to the train station in Santa Fe and was easy to use if you needed to get to town.
Very nice, clean, comfortable, and convenient
Our stay at Fort Marcy was very pleasant. Our suite was quite, very pretty and comfortable. We had our grandsons with us and they had their own bedroom with twin beds. The beautiful mosaic tile and decor was beautiful with the Santa Fe theme. The staff were very nice and gave us a warm welcome.
Beautiful artwork/decor, and great dining!
Lovely facility, great room.
No concierge, bell staff not helpful at all, was given cold coffee from coffee shop.
Relax, beautiful, staff friendly and helpful.
Ok stay. Make sure if you want a view to ask what
Decent stay for a casino or golf.
View of air conditioners that were running 24 hours a day. Loud sound for a balcony view. Didn't spend much time on the balcony due to the noise and the view. Couldn't leave balcony door open due to sound running constantly. Make sure you ask what you're getting a view of ? Wifi is an extra cost in some rooms
Casino and isolated location make it more for adul
Multiple restaurant , native Indian decors and kiva fireplace in the bedroom oh yeah the balcony to enjoy the views.
Lack of shuttles to museum and plaza
Excellent Spa services and surrounding views
Service staff was inexperienced
Exterior and interior design was perfect, it matches the local architecture.
Extremely rude ( 0 smile) personnel ( except the consierge), they look like they only respect the guests that look highly reach and pay full check with no doubts or questions at all. Mini bar sensors are unacceptable making guests feel like they are thefts by definition.

Policies vary by room type and provider.
All reservations at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder – even non-cancellable stays – on or before June 30, 2020, are eligible for a full refund. For more information, visit the Hilton Corporate Response to COVID-19 page.
The moment you enter the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder you will feel like you have just arrived at an art museum. With over 400 unique pieces from Native American artists, you will find everything from paintings to pottery, sculptures and weavings. The resort has been inspired by the Po’suwae’geh Owingeh pueblo traditions to create an enchanting experience in every room and public area, and any art lover will love going on a self-guided tour to discover all the art.
The rooms of the resort are quite spread out, and as a result you might have to walk long distances between one spot and another. If walking too much is a potential issue, ask for a room closer to the casino side or to the elevators, however as these tend to be noisy at times, it is best to have a room above the 3rd floor. For a quieter stay, ask for a room on the spa side.
The Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder organizes a variety of shows and events on a regular basis, ranging from music concerts and tributes shows to food festivals and sporting events. Most events are suitable for guests of all ages, and you will find a few to choose from every week. Tickets can be booked online or from the Buffalo Thunder Box Office.
If you are bringing your pet on holiday with you, aside from offering pet-friendly rooms, you can make use of the Dog Park for a bit of playtime, or head to the Butterfly Trail if you want to take your dog for a walk. And if you don’t want to leave your pet alone in the room while you dine, the Red Sage Patio restaurant is dog-friendly. Please note that dogs have to be under 70 lb to stay at the resort and an additional fee of $75 applies for that service.
If you are looking at using public transport to get to your accommodation, you can hop on bus line 50 or 250 heading towards downtown Albuquerque and get off at the ABQ RailRunner train station, where you can get a train to Santa Fe. Once you arrive, you can get the Buffalo Thunder shuttle bus to reach the resort. The total time for this trip will be about 2h, so if time is of essence for you, a quicker transfer would be by using a taxi or renting a car from the airport, in which case the trip will take a bit over 1h. A private taxi ride will cost about $160, while the fare for a shared ride shuttle bus will be about $60. (Prices checked 06/05/19).
