Love this place❗️❗️
Words cannot describe the amazing experience you'll have !
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at and I've stayed at the best! From the moment you book your reservation the staff makes you feel like they have already began to prepare for your arrival. I booked the 2-bedroom suite on-line about 4 months before our arrival. I was celebrating my 60th Birthday with my partner and two best friends. I received a welcome phone call the same day and a welcome e-mail from Anna that confirmed the reservation details. Every month or so I received an e-mail asking if there were any special things we needed. When I called to re-confirm the reservation a month before our arrival the Callie treated me like a close friend coming to visit.
Then you arrive! The check-in process is handled very elegantly and you are escorted to your room. Upon opening the door to our suite we were immediately transported to an amazing new place. The experience is overwhelming. Beauty abounds and you don't know where to look first. Even inch of the room has been touched by artists. The Furniture, Fabrics and Architectural Details are a perfect mix of Santa Fe and Ottoman Empire and it works. Every Inch of the Ceiling and all of the Beams are hand painted in different designs. Every surface of the Bathrooms are covered with Mosaic Tiles. It was so beautiful we cried. We reluctantly left the room an hour later to make our Dinner reservation. The Concierge provided a Driver to take us to the restaurant and pick us up. As soon as we were done we immediately went back to the room. We spent the rest of the night sitting and taking in all of the sights in the room. Our senses were overwhelmed. We could not believe our good fortune. The next morning we went to the courtyard and had a 5-star breakfast prepared for us (included in the price of the room). My favorite was the Blue Corn Pancakes. Better than any restaurant we could have gone to and the service was unsurpassed. I can't recommend Inn of the Five Graces enough. To call it a hotel doesn't justify it - it's an experience. This is the place to stay if you go to Santa Fe.
The ONLY place to stay in Santa Fe
This is a very real "Oasis in the Desert". If you ever want to celebrate something very special or just "get away from it all" this is the place. Believe me!! In the marvelous old city of Santa Fe, Ira and Sylvia Seret, internationally-known importers and creators of unique and exotic architectural elements, rugs and antiques, decided to take an ancient, dilapidated collection of buildings and create a hotel.

The Inn of the Five Graces was originally known as Seret's 1001 Nights. The 24-suite hotel opened in 1996, and from the beginning the Inn was a magical and fanciful retreat, furnished with near-eastern treasures and antiques that the Serets brought back from their travels. Sylvia Seret designed the fabulous mosaic tile-work for the suites' kitchens and bathrooms. The Garrett Hotel Group managed an

Our Story

In one of Santa Fe’s most historic neighborhoods, designers Ira and Sylvia Seret, transformed a neglected cluster of traditional adobe buildings into a unique hotel. As internationally-known importers of exotic antiques, rugs, textiles and architectural elements, the Serets conceived the hotel as a showcase for their combined creative talents. From its 1996 opening as “Serets’ 1001 Nights”, the 24-suite hotel has been a magical retreat, brimming with the most exquisite of the Serets’ treasures, collected on travels through Central and South Asia. Sylvia Seret’s glorious, one-of-a-kind tile mosaics adorn the suites’ kitchens and bathrooms, while Ira Seret’s signature design style makes every space an extraordinary living experience.

In 2002 the Inn was renamed to honor its sensuous atmosphere along with its many Afghan and Tibetan artifacts. The name, “Five Graces”, refers to an Eastern concept — the five graces of sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Each needs to be honored in the full experience of life. Over the years, the Serets’ original vision has been continually developed with meticulous attention to excellent service, cuisine, and comfort as the Inn has grown into newly acquired properties on its historic street. They continually enhance the hotel’s visual experience, updating design elements and collection pieces throughout.

In January, 2010 Sharif Seret took on the management of the property, bringing a focused dedication to creating a world class hotel with unparalleled service.

Within a short period, Sharif’s leadership and guidance raised the standards of service, amenities and guest experience to position The Inn of The Five Graces as New Mexico’s top hotel and one of the best hotels in the United States. His efforts quickly put the Inn of the Five Graces on the map for discriminating international travelers. In 2013, Five Graces was named the #1 Small Hotel in the US by Tripadvisor, among other accolades, and in 2019, much to Sharif’s credit, Travel and Leisure named Five Graces the #1 City Hotel in the US. Sharif has been instrumental in expanding the property to include the Luminaria Villa and a luxury spa, applying his expertise and gifts to create a truly unique destination.
