My husband and I recently had a delightful stay at La Fonda in Santa Fe. The entire hotel is filled with southwestern art, and each room also contains art items. Last year we were also in Santa Fe, but stayed on a chain inn on Cerrillos Road. This year I insisted on staying at La Fonda. It has a perfect... More

Historic hotel that has been beautifully renovated. Ideal location right on the plaza within walking distance to historic sights, shopping and restaurants We stayed on the Terrace level which has its own check-in system, private elevator, concierge, exercise room, jacuzzi/hot tub, and includes daily breakfast. Well worth the extra cost and very quiet and private. Our room was spacious with... More

This hotel is almost 100 years old but has been so totally renovated that you can't really tell. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was amazing (more comfortable than at home). The decor is beautifull including hand painted headboard, original artwork, hand crafted furniture. The floor was hardwood with a lovely area rug. The bathroom was also spacious... More

Our room was a suite with a balcony and view of the Loretta Chapel and rooftops of Santa Fe. Bed was King with a most comfortable mattress. Breakfast and lunch in La Plazuela Restaurant... More

We have stayed at the La Fonda several times over the last 10 years but since they have renovated I must say that it is excellent. We were able to enjoy live music in the lounge on Saturday evening. It was a great way to spend Mother's Day weekend. The room was beautiful and the staff was extremely helpful.

Second time at the La Fonda for me and pleased with the all around quality of my stay. Two years ago the pool area and rec room were closed due to construction but this time the entire hotel was open. The pool are is in an interior atrium area and is an excellent sheltered location. I was here again on... More

Love love love LaFonda, which was a Fred Harvey hotel. The restaurants and shopping on the Plaza are wonderful. I always enjoy the short walk down to the Lensic for a concert. Make sure you try the French bakery for a quick breakfast.

Situated on the S E corner of the historic Santa Fe Plaza, La Fonda Hotel has been offering luxurious accommodations for discriminating guests since the late 1920s. Across the street from the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica built in 1888, La Fonda is right in the heart of Santa Fe at the very end of the Santa Fe Trail. There are... More

This is my second visit to Santa Fe and I am throughly enjoying the location of La Fonda. The staff has all been very friendly and tried to accommodate any request. The location of our particular room is not awesome but it is functional. We are overlooking the roof of an adjacent building. The roof also necessitates that our room... More

Enjoyed our two night stay. Service when I called and after check-in was very good. People were friendly and helpful. Property is in a wonderful location...on the Plaza. Building is beautifully renovated. Our room was very nice and bed comfortable, but small. Bathroom was not private...everyone in the room knew what was happening. Lobby was always crowded, never quiet. Will... More
