My boyfriend and I went this weekend for our anniversary and we couldn't have been happier! The room was cozy and clean. Our room overlooked the pool which was very cute. We went down that night, my only complaint would be that the hot tub didn't "bubble". We couldn't have had a better location on the Plaza. We were able... More

We loved our recent visit to La Fonda, mostly because of the location. We were able to walk everywhere and it was great to be so centrally located! The hotel has been recently renovated and we had a great room. It was very clean; in fact, this hotel cleans the phones and remote controls in the rooms which we knew... More

This is the cutest, historic but updated hotel. The room was large and had a corner fireplace. It is summer and we did not use it, but would be nice to have in the winter, after skiing, ect. The food was great, staff was friendly, and the location is perfect. I would definately stay here again and recommend it to... More

Just returned from business trip to Sante Fe and loved staying at this hotel. Excellent service and friendly staff added to the ambiance of the hotel that has beautiful appointments, artwork and tile. The king bed room was comfy, clean and had all the comforts of home (fridge, bottled water, K-cups, etc.) The location provided easy access to the plaza,... More

The rooms are charmingly decorated and the bed was very comfortable but our standard king room was quite small with barely enough room to walk around the bed. There are no luggage racks so we slid our open suitcases under the bed. There is no bureau and no drawers anywhere in the room, just a tiny shelf under the nightstand... More

After a complete exterior and interior remodel, it's better than ever. The bathrooms are beautifully updated (love the barn door!) and the furnishings are a mix of new and old. The restaurant and other downstairs areas look brighter. I was there many years ago, and it still has the same charm but the facelift makes it more cheerful.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights using two rooms on two different floors. The location is excellent, with great access to the plaza. The exterior of the hotel and the public spaces are lovely with authentic décor. The rooms are well appointed. The cons: the lower floor is VERY busy. The lobby is directly off the marketplace with... More

We booked a room for three persons with breakfast included. At breakfast the hotel insisted the “Package” we paid for was for three beds but only breakfast for two. Rather illogical, but no big deal. What turned out to be the deal was the manager who was called in to sort the situation out. Patric the manager – probably a... More

This hotel was an experience, not just a place to stay. It is rich in history which is reflected in the decor, the hand painted furniture and tiles, and the intricate maze of beautiful rooms and patios. We enjoyed a "terrace" room with a walkout balcony on the concierge floor. The room was beautifully appointed and the service was cordial... More

Stayed at lafonda for one evening on our drive across the country. Santa Fe was a little out of the way for our trip but so worth it LaFonda is amazing. The rooms are huge and make you feel like you are truly somewhere special. Easy parking. Wonderful rooftop bar to watch the sunset, location is perfect. Walking distance to... More
