Just spent a wonderful 4 nights at La Fonda. We made reservations only a week before our trip and the only room available for our party of 3 friends was in LaTerraza, the concierge floor with large rooms and bathrooms, balcony, great amenities, a private concierge, a private terrace, hot tub and small fitness room for those 17 rooms. Our concierge, Eric, was extremely helpful to us and the general concierge, Rebecca, was also very knowledgeable and friendly. In fact the entire staff was warm and gracious. The hotel was recently renovated and it is steeped with Santa Fe history. Right across from the Plaza and in the center of town, the hotel offers a daily tour ($14) of the downtown area and the guide was interesting an enjoyable. Other tours depart every few hours from just outside the doors of the hotel. We enjoyed the nightly entertainment and dancing in the lobby bar. Many of the terrific country western dancers live in Santa Fe, come here regularly and are so much fun to watch. We also enjoyed margaritas at sunset at the outdoor bar in the historic bell tower. All in all, a wonderful choice.
