We stayed here for two nights. Truly one of the southwest grand hotels. La Fonda is on the plaza in Taos, has the lobby full of RC Gorman artwork and the DH Lawrence "banned" paintings (available to view, not on display) and other work from local artists, including some $30,000 pottery.
Rooms are smallish and well furnished. Nice public areas with comfy chairs and and a small library. Parking is in a private lot which is good as everything on the plaza is metered, when you can get it.
A lot of tourist attractions are within walking distance.
