Sometimes when traveling the stars of comfort, history, elegance and hospitality all align to create a stay you know you will remember forever. This was the case on our last visit to Santa Fe when we stayed at the La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe New Mexico.
We were traveling with quite a bit of luggage this trip and I called ahead to alert reservations and ask if there was anything special I needed to do.
It turned out to be the staff at the La Fonda who did everything and anything to insure our visit (to celebrate my husbands birthday) was spectacular beyond any and all expectations. These days when good service is hard to find this kind of excellent service really stands out. This historic hotel has recently been renovated and we found the rooms comfortable and beautifully appointed with hand painted furniture and original art. We opted to stay an additional day because we fell so in love with our surroundings.
Our package included breakfast, parking and tickets to the O'keeffe museum. We loved being right in the heart of the plaza within walking distance to practically everything we wanted to do.
Everyone from the reservations staff (and Eric) to the bell staff (and Norma), to the servers in the restaurant, to Nancy the marvel of a concierge, made us feel so pampered and so special. A special thank you to Furmin, you are a wonderful person and we will never forget your kindness. Yes, this hotel is getting it right and I'm very pleased to share my thoughts.
