Where to begin? My husband and I traveled to Santa Fe to celebrate his birthday. We decided to stay at the La Fonda because of its location to the Plaza. We did not have a car this trip so we wanted to be able to walk everywhere. The location is perfect! We arrived quite late on a Saturday night and we were greeted warmly. Our room was lovely and warm and romantic and had a wood-burning fireplace in it. There was a wonderful bottle of wine and a nice birthday card awaiting my husband in the room. What a thoughtful gesture! The room was VERY large as was the bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and we rested well every night. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas and we enjoyed noticing new decorations daily. The hotel staff could not be more friendly or helpful. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and had drinks and dinner in the bar and a birthday dinner in the restaurant (all reviewed separately). Our server in the bar, Isabel, was exceptional. We followed her recommendations and they were great. There is a great wood-burning fireplace in the lobby and we sat in front of it and read the paper every day -- it was like being in our own cozy living room. As others noted, this La Fonda is about to undergo renovations. Consequently, the room rate was excellent -- a very good value. We look forward to returning to the La Fonda soon!
