We have stayed at the La Fonda on and off for 30+ years. Many of the staff are not only friends but close to being family. At times we have stayed in excess of 60 days straight. The service, the staff and especially the people like, Becky that we interact with booking reservations and accommodations are just really special people. La Fonda is lucky to have that caliber of professionals representing them. That along with the amenities and the general service and staff is what makes the LaFonda so special. Jim and Paula Townsend

Went to the rooftop bar to view the sunset. The view was lovely but we were ignored for at least 15 minutes, finally told by our waitress that she'd be back. Waited another 15 minutes and to give our order...they were busy but not that busy. Watched the sun go down and still no drinks...waited another 10 minutes when she came back to ask if our margaritas had been good...looked surprised when told neither food nor drinks had come....ran off and we just left. Beware a short waitress with dark hair and pink Buffy tails...totally incompetent and really rather rude.

La Fonda is a charming property and great location. Staff goes above and beyond. Alice the concierge was so helpful with dinner recommendations and reservations. We ate at a couple of different restaurants, however the restaurant at La Fonda was the best! Great food and nice atmosphere. Our room was a one bedroom suite. Seemed a bit over priced for what is was, however very comfortable and the rest of the experience made the price seem ok. Will definitely stay on future visits.

Great Experience. The history makes this hotel a must in Santa Fe. Bell tower for drinks at sunset. Don't miss it. Pricey but you won't forget it. Make reservations for dinner at the Plazauela. Coffee on the balcony in the morning.

La Fonda is the nicest hotel in the City. It’s location on The Historic Plaza makes all the fine dining and shopping g within walking distance. No two rooms are alike in this hotel. All rooms are fantastic particularly the suites. You will not find a finer hotel in the State of New Mexico. La Fonda is an experience you do not want to miss.

We enjoyed all that was offered at this hotel. The rooftop patio is great for watching the sun set. Staff are helpful once we arrive, though not so much in making a reservation. Location on the Plaza is close to the best restaurants, galleries, and museums. Parking downtown is not always easy, so we chose the expensive on-site garage. Workout room is small, but open 24 hours. No coffee in the lobby until the on-site French restaurant opens. We had a "regular" room that had a leaky shower. Water that always hits the back of the shower runs onto the floor. Hotel helped by providing towels for mop-up.

The location is what you are paying for. Very pricy with small room and extra small bathroom with no room for any toiletry items to get ready. The electrical outlet is horizontal, not vertical, so only one item can be plugged in at a time--pick either your blow dryer or your curling iron.

La Fonda was a lovely hotel. It is very comfortable with helpful friendly staff. The location is perfect. I would love to stay again. Sorry I didn’t have the opportunity to try the restaurant but was busy with planned activities.

Saw an ad about the Terrace and was planning g to go to Santa Fe I have never been more disappointed in advertising than I was here The concierge acted as if I were interrupting her more important clients, repeatedly gave me bad information The room was at best okay The thrown looked like it was a Dollar General discount the huge black cords coming out of very single wall looked like tarantualas and disrupted any feeling of elegance The bathroom was lovely until you looked up and saw a gaping cutout over the sink that looked like it would fall in your head at any moment and the tub spewed brown thick water- not at all comforting or peacefully healing The curtain was pretty and like the one in the ad So very disappointing for such a once great hotel and a such a very expensive price There are too many choices in Santa Fe to choose that type of service or that type of hotel so so so disspointing
