La Fonda on the Plaza was a sweet little hotel nestled in the middle of town. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in town. Patrick checked us both in and out and was very nice and helpful. The restaurant there is very good and service was nice also. We did not go into the lounge however on both... More

Stayed 4 nights in March and I was quite happy with my stay here. The room seemed to be newer and better appointed than my 5 other stays, 3-5 days each time, here in past years (2012 and before). The service was excellent and the parking was convenient. It is at the heart of Santa Fe and you can walk... More

We had a great time in Santa Fe and the La Fonda was excellent. The hotel has old charm with beautiful design work. Everyone there was very helpful. The location was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere.

Been to Santa Fe several times (some as a young kid) and always wanted to stay here! My sweet husband finally got us a reservation here! It is a beautiful old hotel with retro charm right in the heart of Santa Fe (walking distance to all of the good stuff). The rooms are not real large but they are very... More

We went to Santa Fe for a conference that was being hosted at this wonderful hotel. Our room had been recently renovated and was extraordinarily comfortable and spacious. There was a sitting room facing a nearby plaza, a first-rate mattress, a well-designed walk-in closet, and an awesome bathroom. We would recommend this to anyone!

I wrote a few days ago about the wonderful time my husband and I had at the La Fonda the first week of October, 2014. I by accident I click all of the lowest marks, even though my comments were full of praise. So since that can't be undone I'm reviewing again with the highest marks in all categories -... More

It’s hard to find a starting place to describe la Fonda in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I guess, first, and most important, is that all of the staff is incredibly friendly, polite, and efficient. One could not ask for more. But then, there was the Hotel itself. It was built in the 1920s in the Spanish Mission style and has... More

I am writing this review because I have found Trip Advisor to be a good source for information on hotels, restaurants and travel in general. Our family has stayed at the LaFonda several times. We were most recently there for the weekend and found it to be as always: friendly accommodating staff, good food (room service), close to everything, and... More

There has been a hotel on this spot since the 1400's - and the current establishment pays full due to its historic obligations. It was recently renovated, and kudos for a very tasteful job done! Art and style are everywhere, every nook and cranny is tastefully done, even the laundry chutes are beautiful. The lobby is more like a mini-mall,... More
