This is my favorite hotel in Santa Fe, The hotel takes up a city block and is truly a central point in the history of Santa Fe and NM. Old world charm combined with unique shops and classic NM dining. The rooms are nicely appointed. If it's your first trip to the 'City Different', I recommend this hotel. Wander the... More

We stayed for a week in July, driving in. The hotel has its own parking garage which was easy to find. The staff was very efficient and courteous when helping with our luggage. We had the traditional room which at first glance might seem a bit small but we really spent very little time there. The hotel is right on... More

We make a yearly trek from Denver to Santa Fe with our best friends to attend the Santa Fe Opera. For the last few years we have stayed at La Fonda in the terrace rooms. We couldn't be happier with the rooms, service, location, food and staff. This year, our car broke down and we had to stay a couple... More

The hotel has convenient off street parking right next to the hotel itself and it is located just feet from the central plaza. The restaurant in the hotel was very good for dinner and breakfast and there was an independently run French Bakery on premise for coffee and pastries. The gym is very limited and one of the two treadmills... More

Can't beat the location right off the main square of downtown Santa Fe. This quaint hotel is a very nice spot - recent renovations are great and they did a great job of maintaining the historic feel. The rooms are a little small, but overall great spot!!

My partner and I were married on The Terrace at La Fonda on 7/5/2014. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, but what made it even better was the staff. Every detail was exactly as we'd wanted it to be. Samie planned our wedding as if it were her very own and was more focused on our experience than profit for... More

We stayed in a 2nd floor room with a king bed. The bed was beautiful to look at and a joy to sleep in: linens, mattress and pillows all very comfortable, with a choice of pillows. The room had a mini-fridge concealed in the clothes cupboard/dresser, in which were 2 bottles of water, plus another 2 bottles were outside the... More

We stayed at La Fonda July 13 - 16, 2014. We like the location, right on the plaza, and within walking distance to Canyon Road for the art galleries and restaurants, specifically The Compound and Geronimo. We stayed in suite #502, the top floor, just a few paces from the Bell Tower Bar. The suite has been newly renovated with... More

Cute and clean rooms, sanitizing wipes on remote and phone.. Nicely updated showers are a plus. Great view from the roof top bar. Great location is the catch. The restaurant attached is very good and crepes are a winner from what I hear.

Stayed on 4th floor room w/ a balcony for 5 nights on a combined business/pleasure trip with spouse. The room was excellent, except it was very tight quarters -- even for just the two of us. We had to negotiate space carefully in the main room when we were both getting ready. There is a table with a chair, but... More
