We r Loved into Sante Fe around 1pm on a cross country road trip. We did not have a place to stay as we were not on a strict schedule. We pulled up outside the hotel and made the reservation from the car. Wonderful staff. The hotel is an historic location. They have shopping, restaurants, quick service food and a... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. The room was beautiful, the staff was wonderful and the restaurant was excellent! There is not a better location in Santa Fe for shopping, food and art. The check in process was seamless with the parking garage staff handing us our room keys as we pulled in. Prior to our arrival, the concierge had... More

During our too-brief visit to SF, my wife and I loved coming into this most impressive hotel on two days. We love the lobby. We enjoyed the beautiful window displays in several unique shops, and we were wowed by the elaborate exhibits from many local shops along the main corridors around the lobby. We enjoyed dinner here on Sunday night,... More

I was impressed with La Fonda. All aspects for the room were fantastic - layout, size, bathroom, balcony. I will stay here again. The location is perfect for roaming around the plaza and art areas of Santa Fe.

My wife and I visited Santa Fe for the first time this July, and I'm not sure why we waited this long. What a great city! For our primary university event, we stayed in La Fonda on the Plaza, a terrific hotel in the heart of the city that caters to tourist, but man, it's not a tourist place; in... More

The rooms in this historic hotel have recently been redecorated and are beautiful and inviting. The hotel's interior is so fabulous it's tempting to just stay inside. We love love love Santa Fe, but staying at the La Fonda definitely enhanced our visit!

spent our anniversary at La Fonda and we are so happy we did. when we checked in they greeted us with smiles and a free drink card. Then we entered our beautiful room, on the bed was a fantastic gift basket full of fruit, cheese, and champagne. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were luxurious. The pool area...

A hopping place on a Saturday morning. Several upscale shops. 2 Casual restaurants on first floor. Helpful staff to navigate the meandering Lobby. Take old elevator to 5 Th floor and sit outside on their balcony to have a meal or a drink. It opens at 11:30.

We really enjoyed our dinner and drinks on the rooftop bar. Yummy jalapeño margaritas and delicious veggie tacos. Very wonderful wait staff. We didn't stay at the hotel but it looked cry nice. Highly recommend a visit to the rooftop bar for a lovely view and drink.

We have stayed in two different rooms in the Terrace area, which is the top two floors of the hotel. Has a separate elevator, and is away from the noise and crowding of the very busy main lobby. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Could have been much more attractive using different fabrics and rugs. Bathrooms in these rooms had one... More
