If you can't spend a few nights at La Fonda as we did, then at least walk through the lovingly restored historic lobby and common areas. One member of our group of 3 was fragile and wheelchair bound, but the historic hotel was nevertheless easy to maneuver through, and there were no tiring vehicle transfers when we wanted to sight-see,...

If you want to know where to go or what to do in Santa Fe and the pueblos beyond, Helen the concierge at La Fonda on the Plaza was amazing. She listened to what we wanted to do and then created an easy itinerary which was great. She clearly knows her stuff and was very fun and easy to work... More

What a beautiful hotel at a perfect location. My husband and I stayed with our 2 adult children in a double room. We booked a terrace room and it was well worth the small extra cost. The private balcony and pool/hot tub was wonderful. We used the pool every day and pretty much had it to ourselves. The concierge was... More

We decided to celebrate our anniversary at the La Fonda. We booked our room through Booking.com as they offered a "no cancellation" lowered rate for a standard queen bed room. When we checked in we were surprised to find that we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite with fireplace and also received a complimentary bottle of wine. (We had... More

Top quality in every way. Excellent employees, food, bar everything! The parking can be kind of crowded sometimes, but the location can not be beat. Anytime of the year is a good time to visit and all of the rooms have been redone and many are now pet friendly.

I always stay there, it is a neat hotel with comfortable rooms and good food in the historic district downtown adjacent to the Palace of the Governors, on the old Santa Fe Trail. It is surrounded by wonderful traditional Spanish- American architecture, including buildings like the Loretta Chapel with its wonderful staircase. If you are into art, Canyon Road is... More

We've stayed at the La Fonda before and have always had a great experience. This trip was no exception. All of the staff were attentive, kind and always smiled. Our room, a double this time, was comfortable and we loved the decor. The decor is so very unique at this property; we could never tire of it. We found the... More

Dear Texangal39 Thank you for your lovely review of La Fonda and of Annette. We love her dearly! She brightens many faces at La Fonda and she will be thrilled to read this. I did want to share with you the reasons why we set up the smaller desks at the front. There are actually three desk kiosk areas now... More

This hotel is right off the main plaza attraction in Santa Fe, and there is so much all within easy walking distance. The décor and vibe of this place is quintessential Santa Fe! There are shops and restaurants within the hotel, so the place is bustling. Very good restaurants, and the roof top lounge is fun. Wi Fi was spotty,... More

Dear CCRiderLLC, Thank you for taking the time to review La Fonda. We appreciate your kind comments and are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We do apologize for the spotty Wi-Fi. Because we are a historical hotel with extremely thick inner walls, Wi-Fi does occasionally have some difficulty. We are adding more boosters in the next few months... More

Location at the plaza is great. It got pretty shabby before renovations were finished a couple of years ago, but it's good to go again now. Better service at the hotel's front desk and their lobby restaurant would probably make them #1. But the history and location of the place is more important to me than the service. It's a... More

This historical hotel is right on the Plaza, one of my favorite places to "people watch." The hotel is well maintained and kept clean, has a parking garage and wonderful restaurant. Many seating spaces in the lobby and elsewhere. We loved it. No easy chair in the guest room, but those are pretty rare anyway.
