My wife and I spent three nights at LaFonda recently. The location is the best in town if you want to be near the plaza. We reserved a suite and it was very nice, exactly as represented on the website. We had dinner there one night and breakfast a couple of mornings. Food was excellent and service was very friendly....

My husband and I had a wonderful time at La Fonda over the New Year! Helen was a fantastic concierge who was incredibly accommodating and helped us book some fabulous massages. We had never been to Santa Fe before so La Fonda was perfect, located directly on the Plaza and within a short walk of many tourist destinations (O'Keeffe Museum,...

We stayed at La Fonda the weekend prior to Thanksgiving 2016. The hotel is in a perfect location for a Santa Fe visit, literally on the corner of the town square. All of Santa Fe's downtown is right outside the door. We found the concierge desk to be very helpful with getting in at The Shed without a reservation on...

If you want to park your car and catch the feel of this beautiful "Southwest" city, the La Fonda is the place to book. The inn is beautiful, especially at Christmas. Staff was most accommodating as we arrived early and our room wasn't quite ready. Restaurants, shops, museums sit in the heart of the Plaza, and La Fonda is very...

In all fairness, we booked late coming into the holiday season. However, the room looked nice online and the price, though understandable this time of year ($319.00) was enough that one would expect a reasonable room. The room was very small - difficult to place luggage and work around. Accepting that, we headed off for dinner, knowing full well it...

Quick trip to Santa Fe for a specific exhibition. Usually rent a house for two months in the summer. Always wanted to see Santa Fe in winter. Chose La Fonda for its location and reputation. Was wowed and absolutely loved it. The people are terrific, helpful and informed but not obsequious. Restaurant breakfasts are terrific (included in our room choice)....

Stayed three nights during a very busy ski season. The hotel is right in the middle of everything. We walked to most places and parking at the hotel was great also. Any questions we had they answered them readily and couple of issues in room was quickly fixed. Wonderful place to stay if you like connecting with an areas heritage....

Stayed here for 5 nights over Christmas. Great location, and very nice. Rooms are not large, but upscale and very comfortable. Concierge and front desk staff are very helpful. We had a breakfast packsge, and found the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner to be very good, but not great. The bar was usually crowded, and service was poor, perhaps...

Loved, loved, loved La Fonda on the Plaza. Perfect location, incredibly friendly staff, and dog friendly too! When we checked in, they gave my dog a goody bag complete with treats and a toy. The bar was fun at night and they did a great job decorating for Christmas, as I was there just after Thanksgiving. I would stay there...
