We had no idea we'd booked on the opening weekend of Fiesta. Entering the hotel the first thing we saw was a Mexican wedding parade through the lobby complete with a full mariachi band. Upon check-in we learned that the hotel was 100% booked and there were three more weddings planned for the weekend. We didn’t panic but did begin to imagine all the things that might go wrong with our stay. We travel a lot and usually stay at high-end properties and resorts. I can say that even some of our favorite places would have succumbed to the demands this kind of capacity places on a property. Not so La Fonda. The moment we arrived in the garage Dave Robinson capably ushered us and our bags with grace and a smile on his face. The front desk assured us everything was ready and even called after we’d checked in to make sure our deluxe king room was satisfactory. Concierge Nancy Helman was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and able to provide information on day trip outings, restaurants and even arrange a sunset pedi bike tour even though the company was just about to close its doors for the evening. Unless you know of or have a particular favorite restaurant in Santa Fe, I’d recommend dining at La Plazuela in the La Fonda. Their prices are more than reasonable and the food was some of the best we had.
All in all, my wife and I give La Fonda a big thumbs up. It may be a bit more expensive than other properties but you can’t beat the location, nothing else is even close …. literally, by at least two blocks.
