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

This property is the best place to stay in Santa Fe New Mexico- you are walking distance to everything-best restaurants, fabulous shopping and all the sites on the To Do list. The restaurant in the hotel is wonderful for breakfast before your tours and shopping. Delicious fresh food and reasonable prices. The Roof Top Bar is fantastic- views of all... More

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
