We had a great time at the LaFonda. Excellent wedding venue! All meals we had at the hotel were excellent. Very friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location to shopping and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to others.

La Fonda is a great home away from home hotel. The staff is so wonderful and really go out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. La Plazuela is a gem all on its own and have the best staff I have had in a long time. We will definitely be staying here again!

We travel quite extensively and looked forward to our stay based on the many positive reviews and the history of the hotel. We called ahead to ask about early checkin and were told that our room was empty and there would be no problem. Upon arrival, there was no room available. During our stay, when we would call various desks (front desk, restaurant, concierge) the phone would ring with no answer, so we would walk down to ask our questions. Overall, we found the front desk staff and hosts/hostesses to be unhelpful and unfriendly. On the day we checked out, the person at the front desk did not make eye contact or ask if we had a good time or enjoyed our stay. That's to be expected in any hotel, and especially an expensive one at which you'd expect top-notch service. In addition, they have a serious safety issue with their elevators. We saw two people almost get caught in the closing doors when they failed to stop when blocked by an arm or body. Just terribly disappointing. The one bright area of service was the wait staff in the restaurant, who we found to be helpful, cheerful and accomodating. Unfortunately, we would not return and would not recommend this hotel to anyone we know.

La Fonda on the Plaza is a beautiful, atmospheric hotel, perfectly located on the Santa Fe Plaza. We stayed in two different rooms, and they were both spacious, very clean, and well-appointed. Service in the hotel is unfailingly attentive and gracious. The reason I would return again and again to this hotel is that it is more than just a place to stay. The artwork, the exquisite shops, the comfortable furnishings in the extensive lobby, and the restaurants all make it a destination to be enjoyed in and of itself. I promise you that it is a remarkable hotel that will live on in your memory as it does in mine. It has only been a day since we left, but we already cannot wait to return.

To night stay after 3 nights at the Grand Canyon. Wonderful hotel, although hard to find your way around at times. Great location in Santa Fe. Near the Square and the Cathedral. Walking distance to the Georgia O'Keefe museum which was worth the trip. Loved the shopping in the area and brought home way too much. Well appointed room, very comfortable and modern
