I preface this by saying we have never stayed overnight at La Fonda. That being said, we spend a lot of time in and around the La Fonda building every time we go to Santa Fe. La Fonda is an old historic inn and for that it is worth a walk through the lobby and halls to see the old architecture and southwestern decor. You can also get a fabulous meal there. The lobby buffet bar is excellent for an informal lunch/drink and a welcome break from walking and shopping. The atrium restaurant is lovely and the food is good too. I do recommend making a reservation there. Beside that, the halls are full of art work and the adjoining arcade shops are some of the best on the Plaza. The La Fonda complex takes up an entire block. As an extra, the covered parking garage is an excellent, centrally located facility that is reasonable and safe. Friends say that the hotel rooms are currently undergoing some extensive and long over due renovations at this time but I understand that there are some rate specials and that the construction crews have limited work hours.
