Got a good deal on room with 2 queen beds. However, we were right by the elevators and heard it day/night. Had an unpleasant view of roof top with little else. Kids wanted to swim but despite the pool being heated it was crazy cold. Outdoor pool area was disappointingly plain and right next to the parking garage = very...

La Fonda on the Plaza is in the heart of Old Town and walking distance to many of the historic attractions and local flare. It is filled with artwork from decades of collecting from local artists, folk art, different medians... The collection they have is stunning. The beds were great, the accommodations were perfect. The parking garage kept our vehicle...

Valuable art , artifacts and antique furnishings were prevalent throughout and the staff was more than helpful with each of our needs. We ate breakfast and dinner there each day and...

The staff is very friendly. Rooms very nice. If shopping is your thing and cultural art this is your place. Breakfast at the hotel was very nice. Spent our first day visiting local artisan shops! Loretto Chapel is a must see.

We will stay again. This hotel is beautiful and CLEAN. We moved to a suite for the 3 of us since our 2 bed queen room was a bit small for the 3 of us staying 5 nights. Both rooms were decorated beautifully. They had barn doors for the bathroom doors and the tile and vanity made me want to...

This place is precious. It is historical and the architecture is amazing. The charm here is worth the price and the location is second to none. The restaurant has great food. The pool is nestled in a court yard area. My room was spacious. Not a good view though. The front desk was amazing. Parking was easy and accessible. I...

We stayed on the top floor at La Fonda in a very nice room with a balcony. We enjoyed looking over the view before sunset and in the morning. The historic hotel is beautiful with shops, restaurants and interesting features. The room and bathroom were up to date and beautiful. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant and it was...

At the front desk, talk to Gabby or Anita. When we first checked in Gabby was professional and genuinely informative on the hotel accommodations as well as things around the Plaza and town. Later in the stay, dealt with Anita who went above and beyond what, unfortunately, you expect in service. I have since talked with Anita and booked family...

My wife and I recently spent almost a week in Santa Fe with our kids and grandkids who rented a house and we stayed at La Fonda. It was fabulous. We were upgraded to the Terrace and into a nice Suite. What a great time we had. Great service. Fantastic staff. Good food in the bar and restaurant. The bar...
