Have been in the common areas of La Fonda for years but this was our first stay. The room was amazingly clean and the bathroom had modern fixtures, etc. Room was very quiet, which was somewhat surprising for a first floor room. The renovation workers were a non-issue.

Hotel has a great location. Rooms were nicely redone and beds were very comfortable. We knew renovation was occurring so we asked about the noise. They said it was minimal with work only going on the floor below us. Well, they were working on our floor but that was no issue. The big issue is that starting at 6 am,... More

Over the years, we have enjoyed many memorable breakfasts in the hotel's dining room on our way to another destination. This trip, we decided to stop for a night. We were offered a selection of rooms, and chose the least expensive since we were not there for the room, but to experience Santa Fe from a convenient location. It was... More

We very much enjoyed our stay for three nights. We had a very nice room with a small balcony over-viewing the city. We use to sit there in the evenings while our son was already sleeping. The location is perfect, everything is in walking distance so that we did not move our car at all during our stay. The hotel... More

I have stayed at many other hotels in Santa Fe, this by far was the most comfortable and convenient place I have stayed at. Each staff member that I came into contact with, was always very kind and accommodating. The hot tub/pool area is beautiful and relaxing. The room itself was truly a home away from home, with a very... More

So let me start by saying that I had the stay from hell. So why did I give then 3 stars. Well, here's why: I checked in on a Saturday evening and saw the renovations started one door down from my room. I figured: tomorrow is Sunday--no work, right? Wrong...they started in at 8am. Monday morning, they started at 7pm.... More

I¹m certainly pleased to hear that our front desk staff made an impression on you during your stay and that they were able to accommodate you even though your stay was not stellar. A massive renovation project to modernize this historic property without compromising its historical character has created challenges we are quickly overcoming. La Fonda apologizes for any inconvenience... More

The room was charming and the location was very convenient - being right in the middle of town and across the street from the historic central park. The decoration was full of character. The bed very comfortable. The bathroom was large and clean. During the time we were there for business, there were live bands every night at the park,... More

Rooms are done out nicely with all sorts of artwork. Bed was one of comfiest I've ever slept it - big, plush and with loads of pillows. Lots of amenities in hotel (shops, restaurants, crepe place). Good value for money in Santa Fe. Right on plaza and full of history. Big construction plan going on at present, but didn't really... More

The hotel is in the process of upgrading rooms and cleaning up the interior! They are being very successful in maintaining the character and history of the hotel while making the rooms outstandingly delightful. Our room was cozy and comfortable. The room felt like a suite in which to be spoiled!
