From the minute you walk into La Fonda, you're walking into History. The architecture, layout and location is perfect if you're visiting Santa Fe. Located right in the middle of old Santa Fe, you can easily walk to several unique Chapels ( Loretto ~ highly recommended) and Basilica of St Francis is Assisi. You're right across the street from the... More

We stayed here for three days on a road trip from Austin TX to San Diego and it was the highlight of our tour. The ambience of this historic hotel was welcoming with lovely fireplaces to sit and meet new people and a wonderful (free) tour of the hotel itself and its wonderful artworks. I loved the painted glass doors... More

OK, you have to start with how expensive the place is...but if you can afford it it is worth it. Start with the great staff--I was in the concierge wing and they saw to every need. But throughout the building the staff is friendly and helpful (don't forget to tip your maid!). The rooms are a delight, all somewhat different,... More

Wonderful experience. Very nice room with comfortable amenities. There was even a Western swing dance that occurred in the lobby bar. Wonderful western experience. For a weary traveler to watch a group of talented locals dance with their partners and then engage some of us bystanders was FUN!!

My husband and I stayed here for a two day weekend get away. He is in the military and we are separated often. Anita and the whole staff made our stay exceptional! The attention to detail, kindness of the staff, and exceptional service made this a trip I'll never forget!

Excellent historic hotel right on the Plaza, with wonderful help. In particular, Andrea from Reservations and Rebecca Hammer from the Concierge desk were especially helpful when we needed to make some last minute changes to reservations. The fireplace with pinion firewood was especially wonderful to have on Christmas Day - we'd love to come back.

I hadnt ever stayed at the La Fonda when my company booked a room for me due to business in Santa Fe. It was a really great experience. The recently remodeled room i stayed in was warm, comfy, cozy, and had great amenities! The hotel restaurant (with the painted windows) was great for breakfast! Overall, a wonderful stay
