On a spring break road trip with my two sons, we had been staying in chain hotels, which is a pretty homogenous experience, so the switch to a unique but still very comfortable setup was a welcome one. The very nice people upgraded us to a suite, which I gather they do regularly when they have a suite open. It... More

Location is in the city center, the check in process was nice and the rooms have recently been renovated, that is the good. The rest, not so good. The turn down service was them throwing three chocolates in the bed, not making it or closing the blinds. The front desk clerk gave absurdly wrong information for hiking, the lobby is... More

We stayed here for 3 nites and had a suite that had a bath and a half. That was great -- it really cut down on the noise in the morning when I was trying to sleep and my husband was up and about. The suite had a large living room area with a good sized desk. The bedroom was... More

The renovated La Fonda beautifully embraces the warmth and art of the Land of Enchantment. Hallways with contemporary and historic native art, headboards painted by artists in the original La Fonda style, and art in the rooms with descriptions on the origin of the pieces all add to a truly Santa Fe experience. We loved finding the Kelly Jo tile... More

Recently spent 4 very relaxing days at La Fonda- the most comfortable bed, with lots of pillows and a clean spacious and quiet room, safe, refrigerator, bathrobes, chocolates on the bed at night. Keurig coffee maker with selection of pods, and complimentary bottled water that is refilled daily. Close to the Plaza, shopping, museums, and restaurants. Parking is $15/day for... More

Came from Australia to a conference at LA Fonda being a first visit to USA and the service has been amazing. Danny on the desk, Daniel and Reuben with the luggage,the concierges Rebecca and maryanne, Mary who organised a new fridge, nothing is too much for them to help you. I don't want to leave.

We finally stayed here for one night, having for years visited the hotel to use their parking or to pass through and visit the shops. Overall, a good first stay, the ambiance is wonderful and the hotel is nicely appointed. The room was small for the price (romance package), but cozy and we were on the 2nd floor, south side... More
