Very welcoming and comfortable hotel with old time grace and elegance. Helpful and sincerely friendly staff, comfortable rooms and common spaces, good food, and bar service. Breakfast superb, coffee in lobby superb, rooftop bar great afternoon spot. Perfect location, good parking setup and good concierge. Nothing below expectation, in fact constantly exceeded my expectation.

I love this hotel! The common areas are reflective of the area beautiful Native American art. Our rate included breakfast which was an excellent deal. The room was large and well appointed. The staff are very courteous and professional. Parking in the attached garage is free. Museums and restaurants are in walking distance.

Located on the top floor of the historic and fabulous La Fonda Hotel, this is THE place to view a fantastic Santa Fe sunset. If there happens to be clouds in the sky...it could be all the better. Desert reds and oranges filter through the gray clouds. This rooftop bar with a great appetizer menu has a lovely outdoor seating... More

With the La Fonda's new renovation, it still reflects the great history of this hotel and Santa FE. We stayed for a couple of evenings. We ate at the restaurants and bars. The food and service was outstanding. WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to go back often.

La Fonda on the Plaza was quite the indulgence for us. Everything from start to finish was terrific. The staff was friendly, engaging and very accommodating. The linens and furnishings were lovely and the food at their restaurant, La Plazuela, was delicious. It maintains an old world feel with modern amenities. It's location was perfect for exploring the area. There... More

We had not been to Santa Fe in over 10 years, and decided to go back to our favorite hotel there, despite reading about a number of new hotels in the area. It was a good decision because La Fonda just seems to embody SANTA FE! If you are looking for shiny new appointments, don't go. But if you want... More

This is an historic hotel that has been upgraded and remodeled over the years, and the location can't be beat - just steps away from the central plaza of Santa Fe. The Spanish decor is really pretty and contributes to the relaxing feel of the hotel. Our room was like a junior suite, large bedroom and a separate sitting area... More

Stayed one night in lovely suite overlooking the cathedral. Great access to everything on the plaza. Church bells during the day but quit at night. We would definitely return. The floors are confusing and hard to figure out how to get everywhere but it is common in an old building.

We found the LaFonda a lovely place to stay! The people were extremely helpful and friendly, the room was clean and with all of the amenities one would expect. We enjoyed a light lunch on the deck where the sunsets are spectacular in the evening. The location is within walking distance of the plaza, shopping, galleries, and museums. We would... More

Was just there for a wedding and stayed on the terrace. What an experience, the service, the views, and the staff were all amazing! The wedding venue, with the Cathedral in the background, was so incredible. The food for the reception was very delicious and as advertised!
