A little small, but clean and well apportioned. The king size bed is comfortable. Free WiFi. Well located in Santa Fe. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a $15 charge for parking in the covered garage.

I stayed at La Fonda in November. I found it to be one of the nicest and most accomodating hotels I've ever stayed at. My booking was complex because of my family members coming and going. I had a call from the hotel several days prior to my trip and in order to simplify my arrangements they gave me a... More

My,husband and I had a lovely experience at La Fonda. This hotel has generously sized comfortable rooms in a historic setting. The amenities and staff are top notch. They offer convenient parking in their garage attached to the hotel. The roof top bell tower lounge is open until an hour after sunset and has a super view. Our room was... More

I was on a road trip with my adult niece and was I ever happy I chose this place. We both fell in love with this hotel. Everything was perfect and what a lovely location and position to be in in Santa Fe. Please note, this is one of the only hotels on the Plaza to have its own parking,... More

A trip to New Mexico to visit with old friends. We chose this place mostly for the location. Not having a car we wanted to enjoy the town on foot. I was traveling with a girlfriend. Our room was large and had plenty of New Mexico charm. The view from our balcony was beautiful and we wished the weather would... More

Location provides walking access to museums, restaurants, art gallery's, and more. Appreciated all the work since our last stay, over two years ago, to upgrade the hotel infrastructure and preserve it's historic integrity and architecture. Welcoming, professional staff make for a great experience.

We've been to Santa Fe several times but never had the chance to stay at La Fonda. First - Location, location, location. Can't get better than right on the plaza. Close to all the shops and restaurants. It's an easy walk to everything Second - The rooms are very clean and nice. They have redone the rooms and they will... More

Unbelievable architecture and best example of the splendor of high living in the old South West recreated in the modern world. The hotel is also full of tremendous old and new South Western art and preserved examples of the original furniture and art when the hotel was first built by the railroad Barons of old.

I had first stayed at La Fonda over 10 years ago and have since stayed at a number of other Santa Fe hotels. However, with my most recent visit, La Fonda is now my hotel of choice for Santa Fe and I will be sure to return again and again. I'm not sure exactly when the hotel renovated the quest... More
