“Trip to Santa Fe”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We didn't stay at this hotel, but while visiting Santa Fe we stopped at La Fonda for drinks and appitizers. The appitizers were great - wish we were able to make it back to try their meals, but unfortunately, we weren't able to. If we go back to Santa Fe, we will try their dinner menue for sure.

What a fantastic experience! The accommodations are top notch! The renovated rooms are gorgeous, and the views from the terrace are breathtaking. In addition, the service offered by the staff is unrivaled. Every time I made a request of the front desk, they jumped to help assist. Furthermore, the manager Virginia is phenomenal. She goes above and beyond the responsibilities of her position in order to offer the best experience to all of her clients. The food at the restaurant is some of the best tex-mex I have ever tasted. Do not miss out on this experience! The hotel is centrally located to with easy access to the square and local historic sites. My only complaint (very minor) is the small size of the fitness center and the fact that the TV in it was not functioning. Despite this minor hiccup, I would jump at the chance to return! If you plan on visiting Santa Fe, this is THE place to stay!

We did not stay at La Fonda as it is a bit pricey but it looked like they were doing a lot of renovation on the rooms.
Had not been in Sante Fe in 19yrs and it was so nice to stop by after going to the museums
Sitting at the bar having a couple of cold drinks after walking around all afternoon was a true treat, Our Bar Tender Roberto was fantastic. such a pleasant man. we truly enjoyed visiting with him. and the other bar tenders. This is a great spot to go and enjoy a little spoiling. Highly recommend it..we did not eat there, but the food did look good.

My husband and I have loved this hotel since our first visit at least ten years past. Last year we couldn't stay here during our annual ski vacation and chose another hotel nearby because of the renovation. When we opened the door to our room this time, we almost gasped with pleasure at the perfection of the renovation. So many thoughtful details as well as the newly chosen artistic furniture are the surprise that awaits anyone who comes for a revisit. Thanks to the architect, etc. we think the renovation will give La Fonda a competitive edge with the other 4 star hotels.

Room Tip: The upper floors offer a view of downtown and a balcony.

We stayed at La Fonda for two nights on a road trip through New Mexico. This hotel is located just steps from shopping, the plaza and many restaurants. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated in Southwestern style. We ate dinner at the lounge one night and the main restaurant the second night. Both dinners were delicious and the service was great. There is a French bakery on site and we had breakfast there twice. The crepes are delicious and the staff is very friendly. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Santa Fe. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

We joined another couple at The Hotel's Tower Bar and WOW! The view was enjoyable and when dark clouds threatened the photo opportunities were fabulous. They will close the bar if the weather turns because you are exposed to the elements but we were lucky and were able to stay. This is a great place to be to enjoy the sunset, but seating is very limited. This Hotel's location is perfect and we visiting many times during our trip.
