I stayed at La Fonda hotel recently. The hotel was full of New Mexico charm. The room was small, but comfortable. There was a refrigerator in the room that was helpful for keeping some drinks cold. The staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful. There were a few quirks though. The housekeeping staff forgot to replenish the coffee and water (a MUST for the dry climate) in the room. I am not certain that I would return to Santa Fe though. Although many of the people were friendly on the surface, if they don't like you, they can be just plain rude. I smoke, and the lady in the gift shop let me know clearly that she disapproved, and made it difficult to purchase cigarettes. I was traveling with an Asian friend from SE Asia who purchased over $150 of trinkets for his friends from a general store. When he asked the lady a question about the charge on his receipt, she told him she was busy and it is self-explanatory. Finally, in a grocery store, a local person came up behind us and uttered racial slurs directed at him. I was certainly embarrassed for the way they treated a guest in this country, and the combined experiences certainly marred the Santa Fe experience.
