Wow is all we can say about our experience at La Fonda. We were first greeted by Anita at the front desk, who sent a bottle of local wine up to our room as a welcome present. My daughter and I were pleasantly surprised by our beautiful and spacious room with a balcony that overlooked the Loretto Chapel. Throughout the...

I have been a regular at the La Fonda since I was a young girl in the late 50's. Dinner and a margarita in the bar has been a must for me for decades. This time disappointed me. Service was lackluster. As a matter of fact we waited so long we were about to leave when a waitress finally showed...

The La Fonda is a classic Santa Fe hotel that not only has lovely recently refurbished rooms, but also has delicious food. Their bar features wonderful bands for dancing. I have stayed at the La Fonda for over 40 years, and always enjoy going back. They are also a pet friendly hotel.

Old Hotel with so much charm. The rooms are a bit small but nice. The location is perfect for Old Town fun. In the center of attractions means less walking I had no problems with any of the services fo the hotel. My stay in Santa Fe would not have been so wonderful without the La Fonda.

Centrally located next to the historic Santa Fe Plaza, the hotel's decor transports one back in time to the romance of the old southwest. Boutiques featuring everything from southwest art to photography and clothing surround the classic old Santa Fe style restaurant. Be sure to take in the spectacular sunsets from the Bell Tower Bar on the rooftop too.

We loved Santa Fe NM and La Fonda Plaza Hotel. The hotel is historical, clean, great helpful staff, and the food delicious. I would return to Santa Fe and this hotel, as well. The only wish would have been if the hotel could have warned us to obtain a rental car in advance if our trip because we were unable...

the hotel is a 4 Diamond "historic hotel" and it deserves that title. The location in downtown is ideal so everything (Cathedral, Governors Palace etc) is within walking distance. Room was great, staff was friendly and attentive.

This historic hotel is charming, full of New Mexican arts and crafts. The location is right on the plaza, in the heart of things. You can walk to restaurants and lots of shops with beautiful offerings. The hotel rooms are lovely, but not huge. it's worth it to be in this prime location. Highly recommended for an authentic Santa Fe...

This is a true gem. The location is perfect, right on the plaza, walking distance to most in-town destinations. The hotel has a great historic feel and has a fabulous art collection in the public rooms and in the guest rooms. Our room was small but comfy, also tastefully decorated. The staff was uniformly helpful and friendly. I would stay...

It was a great place! Historic and nostalgic right on the downtown square, so easy walking to shops, restaurants, museums, etc. The rooms are a bit small but nicely appointed. Very friendly staff. Welcoming environment. Would definitely return.
