We were back for another visit to La Fonda, and realize why we always choose this hotel. Several reasons, but mainly because it is a perfect fit for Santa Fe. I know there are other choices, some a touch more modern, but if a person wants to really feel like he or she is in Santa Fe, this is the... More

Recently stayed at La Fonda for a weekend getaway. The location is great, the hotel itself is BEAUTIFUL. The room we stayed in was a suite and was very spacious with amazing views from the balcony, especially during sunset. The first night we decided to find a spot on the plaza to have dinner, which was ok, but after eating... More

All the staff were friendly and helpful. I loved the New Mexican art decorating the walls. The breakfasts we had in the dining room was... More

We went to New Mexico on a Road Scholar trip, based in Albuquerque. After the program we went to Santa Fe for a few days. I looked online for something that fit our needs, and chose LaFonda by chance. It was fabulous from the time we saw the adobe structure until we left 5 days later. The staff is excellent;... More

We stayed here 3 nights in March 2015 with another couple- all thought the stay excellent in all regards. Room was on the small side, but comfortably and tastefully furnished, spotless (as was bathroom), bed was very comfortable and it was quiet. Desk staff were very helpful and friendly. There is parking (which you pay for), but was quite convenient...especially... More

I doubt this hotel needs additional hosannas from me but my family was absolutely WOWed here. Our dual queen room on the Terraza floor was very spacious, comfortable and beautiful. The custom tile work and unique art in the room and hallways were enchanting. Our bathroom had a separate tub and shower, but the shower was unusual in that it... More

My husband and I just spent a week at La Fonda. We ended up in a room with a balcony which we greatly enjoyed. Arial was fantastic at check in. The concierge staff was on the ball when we asked about drives. They quickly provided us with maps and suggestions which we greatly appreciated. The room was on the smaller... More

Every wall, door window, cornice in fact just about everything there is an authentic piece of art. Our welcome to the hotel was warm and relaxed, we went straight up to their rooftop bar which has a... More
