Nice resort

I stayed here a couple of years ago. The room was very reasonably priced and luxurious. Nice grounds. It's about a fifteen minute drive into Santa Fe and nicely located on a golf course. I'll definitely go back.

Ski the Thunder
Reviewed 5 days ago

Before the internet there were the stories told by natives, returning travelers and rugged adventurers, came those who dare go in search of the unknown. They describe beautiful, thriving, unforgiving territory spreading hundreds, and thousands of miles. Living becomes contagious when the stories are written down for so many more to become inspired, because the world is right there. Too many people today spend their lives walking plowed ground on the internet instead of passing wisdom, and may be passing on living their lives.

Instead of fearing the unknown and when a fog overtakes the imagination, there is a beacon shining in the arid lands of northern New Mexico. Located at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, there is a Santa Fe inspired castle, a vast world containing many doorways and paths to new adventure. The call of the open road leads to this place where the name shakes your dreams loose and the realm of excitement reigns on your next visit to the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder, the ultimate retreat for winter sports enthusiasts.

This season, the resort is offering a special package tailored to delight the most discerning winter wander lusters. From après ski drink specials to deep tissue spa treatments and discounted lift tickets, this snow lover’s package guarantees an unforgettable, winter escape. Careful planning can also lead you to headliner quality entertainment. Central to five ski areas including Ski Santa Fe, Taos, Pajarito, Sippapu and Red River, Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder is the perfect home base for travelers looking for a variety of slopes and scenic routes.

The Après Ski Package starts at $199.00 per night and it includes; deluxe accommodations in a King bedded room with a toasty fireplace, 15% off lift tickets for Ski Santa Fe available for purchase at the Concierge stand, $50.00 nightly credit towards any treatment at Wo’ P’in Spa and $50.00 nightly après ski food and beverage credit at the resort’s signature Red Sage restaurant.

No matter how fast the internet gets, taking time to plan your trip is time well spent. When experiencing the mysteries of Northern New Mexico, it will bring you stories to relish. Travel to the farthest reaches by plane, train, auto or boat is the key to modern movement. Remaining in motion is the key to life, so attack with thunder, and bolt into the Ultimate Après Ski Package at the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder.

Way to expensive.

It is a nice hotel, but the room service prices were ridiculous. $12 for fruit and yogurt. I hate that there wasn’t a bath tub just a shower. It just wasn’t that great for the price and resort fee. Also, when I booked, it said we would have bath robes. No robes.

Beautiful and Comfortable Property

Buffalo Thunder offers all the perks of both a resort and a casino. This place is always clean and comfortable. Front desk staff will make sure your check in or check is easy and simple. Parking is ample and generally feels very safe. We continue to come back for both fun and relaxation. Take advantage of their amenities! Totally worth the stay!

Fabulous resort.

Hilton Honors always exceeds my expectations in every way. The front staff is efficient and professional. The room is beautiful and clean. The beds are extremely comfortable. The restaurants are excellent, and the food is great. Visiting the Casino is always fun. For many reasons, I highly recommend Buffalo Thunder.
