Choose from two deals at Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa in Santa Fe to celebrate their 95th anniversary year, using the promo codes.

I’ve stayed at Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa and gave it a good review in a city guide I wrote for AOL Travel. It’s a gorgeous property.   The resort is in a beautiful location in the peaceful Tesuque Valley surrounded by Santa Fe National Forest, yet it’s only about a 5 minute drive from Santa Fe Plaza. (Yes, I’ve timed it.) It has a pretty good restaurant too.  If you’re looking for a Santa Fe getaway, these two deals could help you save some dollars:

1) Rooms from $95 per night to kick off the 95th anniversary year using the promo code 95ANN
According to an email, the  rate is for a traditional room, for dates from December 14 – 20, 2012, and January 1 – 31, 2013.

2) Stay 2 nights get the 3rd night free using the promo code BACKTOTHERANCH
The offer is valid on Sundays through Thursdays until April 30, 2013. The third night free deal excludes holidays.

Book online at the website or contact the Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa in Santa Fe directly to make a reservation by phone on 1-800-768-3586.

New Mexico Restaurant Week

February 24, 2011 by

Comments Off on New Mexico Restaurant Week

New Mexico Restaurant Week actually runs over four weeks – offering savings at fave restaurants in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos. (Who says we can’t count in New Mexico? Well, we may not count so well, but we eat FABULOUSLY, especially when it’s on the cheap!)

The 2011 New Mexico Restaurant Week promotion offers three course (or more) meals for a flat rate, with several options in each course, including vegetarian choices at many restaurants.  It runs in a different city each week from now to March 20, 2011, and the restaurant deals range from $20 to $40 per person.

It’s a great opportunity to eat out at some places you haven’t tried before, and the fixed price menus are especially good value at the more upscale places, compared to their regular a la carte menus.

Right now they’re celebrating down south with Las Cruces Restaurant Week through February 27. Closer to home, we’re looking forward to:

Taos Restaurant Week from February 27 to March 6.  Participating Taos restaurants include:

  • Doc Martin’s Restaurant in the Taos Inn ($20)
  • Antonio’s ($20)
  • El Meze ($30)
  • Chef Damon’s ($30)
  • Graham’s Grille ($30)
  • El Monte Sagrado ($40)
  • The Stakeout ($40)

Santa Fe Restaurant Week from March 6 – 13. Participating Santa Fe restaurants include:

  • Zia Diner ($20)
  • Vinaigrette ($20)
  • Vanessie of Santa Fe ($30)
  • O’Keeffe Cafe ($30)
  • Anasazi Restaurant ($30)
  • Restaurant Martin ($30)
  • The Compound ($40)
  • Geronimo ($40)

Albuquerque Restaurant Week from March 13 – 20. Of course they saved the best till last 😉 Some of my fave participating restaurants include:

  • Pars Cuisine ($20)
  • Nob Hill Bar & Grill ($20)
  • Nicky V’s Pizzeria ($20)
  • Artichoke Cafe ($30)
  • Brasserie La Provence ($30)
  • Lucia at Hotel Andaluz ($30)
  • Scalo ($30)
  • Casa Vieja ($40)
  • Marcello’s Chophouse ($40)
  • Also the Corn Maiden at Hyatt Regency Tamaya ($30) although there’s only one choice per course at Corn Maiden – but it looks like they include a glass of wine too!

Reservations heartily recommended where possible, because anyone with the remotest interest in food will belly up to take advantage of this deal.

There are also New Mexico lodging deals and hotel packages in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos, plus some special events including cookery demonstrations, tastings, seminars, and other foodie fun in the various cities at various prices. We’ll let you know of anything super-special that we spot, but meanwhile check out the details at the New Mexico Restaurant Week website.

Orbitz Extra 15% Hotel Discount: Book by August 12

August 9, 2010 by  
Filed under Lodging, Weekend & Day Trips

Comments Off on Orbitz Extra 15% Hotel Discount: Book by August 12

Get an extra 15% off Orbitz low rates on hotels, including Labor Day weekend 2010. It’s a time limited deal: Read on for the details and code word….

Orbitz hotel room prices are a pretty good bargain to begin with, but this 3 day hotel code knocks an extra 15% off hotel rates, and it’s valid for travel through 30 September, 2010, with NO blackout dates.  Which means your trip to Albuquerque if you’re visiting, or your trip out of town even for Labor Day weekend, just got a tidy sum cheaper.

I’ve tried out the code, and it works even on hotels that are already discounted by 30%.  BUT, you need to book by August 12, 2010.

Here’s how to get the Orbitz hotel discount:

  • Make a hotel reservation at Orbitz.com by August 12, 2010
  • For stays through 30 September, 2010
  • Enter this promotion code at the checkout page:  HOTEL15

The only caveat I see is that Orbitz Price Assurance doesn’t apply with a promo code. That’s their guarantee that if one customer books a room at a lower price than another customer for the same dates, the one who paid more gets a refund of the difference. But we wouldn’t expect that to apply here, because some people (you) know the promo code, and others (them) don’t, so we can’t really expect Orbitz to refund the difference to the poor out-of-the-loop customers who didn’t use the code, right?

I don’t have a link to the deal as I received it by newsletter as an Orbitz customer.  But thanks to Evelyn at our sister site Big Apple on the Cheap for tipping me the wink as I hadn’t actually had chance to read my Orbitz email yet today…

This could all tie in quite nicely if you’re taking a trip within New Mexico or out of state for this weekend’s National Park Free Entry Days deal we posted about earlier.

Reservations heartily recommended where possible, because anyone with the remotest interest in food will belly up to take advantage of this one.

If you’re from out of town or in the mood for a home-away-from-home stopover, there are special lodging rates during Albuquerque Restaurant Week at Hotel Andaluz ($99 – promo code REST) and Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa ($109- promo code NMRW).

Whoever thought this promotion up and persuaded so many great restaurants to play deserves an extra serving of hot fudge sauce with their wild Atlantic salmon. Or am I getting my menus muddled? There’s just so much to choose from.

Exclusive: Balloon Fiesta Hotel Discount

October 5, 2009 by  
Filed under Balloon Fiesta, Lodging

Looking for a last-minute Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta lodging discount? You know Albuquerque hotel discounts are hard to find during Balloon Fiesta, but we have an exclusive one for you!

Throughout the rest of Balloon Fiesta, you can get the cheapest rate available at Nativo Lodge, conveniently located near San Mateo and I-25, which isn’t far from Balloon Fiesta Park and the Balloon Museum. Simply enter the promo code HHRVIP in the Promo Code box at the top of the Nativo Lodge website. The discount will vary, depending on the type of room you book, but it will be the lowest rate available — lower than any other rate available, including AAA, AARP, Expedia, and more!

And it’s exclusively for ABQ on the Cheap readers!

Nativo Lodge could be called a boutique hotel, in the sense it’s not part of a large chain and is uniquely designed and decorated to reflect southwestern and Native American themes. The hotel has a café, lobby lounge, free wi-fi, pool, fitness center, concierge — even a teepee for parties or retreats. How cool is that?

Nativo Lodge is located at 6000 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque.
