Perfect for those that want to bed down in a stately Queen Anne Victorian inn, the Madeleine was built in 1886 by a railroad tycoon, and sits on a quiet, tree-shaded street within easy walking distance of bustling Santa Fe Plaza. All rooms are different, with mostly period style furnishings and either queen- or king-size beds, and throughout the house you'll see unique stained glass windows and ornately carved wood fireplaces. Our favorite room here is the Columbine, with a king-size bed, fireplace, and a stained glass bay window. But we also like the Geranium Room, the least expensive unit, with a queen bed and private bath across the hall (bathrobes provided!). Breakfast is served across the street at the Hacienda Nicholas (see that property's listing above for details). Homemade cookies and other snacks are available all day, and complimentary wine and appetizers are served each evening. The Madeleine has its own onsite spa—the Absolute Nirvana. The spa, this property, and Hacienda Nicholas are operated by the same owner, and the owner and staff provide a friendly, welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere. They're also willing and able guides to the city. Madeleine's guests receive a 10% discount in the spa. Note: This is a three-story historic building with no elevator, so those with mobility issues or who are not comfortable with stairs should check when booking to make sure they get one of the three ground floor rooms. Be sure to check the website for seasonal and theme special rates. (The owner also rents two cottages nearby, with rates of $155 to $225.)
