La Fonda on the Plaza is a special hotel, filled with history, beautiful artwork, and is a place anyone will feel comfortable. The rooms are newly renovated and were above my highest expectations. The staff is very friendly, accommodating, and the hotel is in a prime location. A stay at this hotel is worth every penny!

Great hotel right off the central plaza in Santa Fe. Spectacular artwork throughout the hotel. Quiet, nicely decorated rooms. Great restaurants can be found a few steps out the door. Close to many art galleries. Was here for a conference; room price was terrific.

While there are undoubtedly more luxurious and more intimate places to stay in Santa Fe, none can compete with the location and sheer southwestern look and vibe of La Fonda on the Plaza. The hotel is located across the street from the central plaza in downtown Santa Fe. It was designed and decorated in the 1920s by Mary Coulter of... More

Just got back from Santa Fe . The La Fonda on the Plaza is an amazing hotel. Fantastic rooms, great restaurant, super staff, nightly entertainment. What more could anyone ask for? The concierge John Felix is the best in the business.
