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.

La Fonda on the Plaza was way beyond a spectacular hotel. It was a focal point of the town, an institution and a base from which to enjoy the whole area. Spacious rooms, friendly, responsive staff. The lobby and the centrally located restaurant Plazuela are works of art. And the location is central to downtown Santa Fe with it being...

Great location to all shops and restaurants. Wonderful rooms and amenities especially the rooms on the terrace. The food is excellent and the service was outstanding. The only negative was that they charge $20 a day to park. One would think that if your are staying there that there would be no charge for parking.

I reviewed La Fonda last year and raved about it's location, amenities, history, and charm. When my wife and I returned to Santa Fe last week, of course we stayed at La Fonda, and it did not disappoint. The hotel remains the best hotel experience we've ever enjoyed. There are other great hotels in Santa Fe, but none that can...

My wife and I recently stayed at La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe and were extremely pleased with the accommodations. The front desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant had wonderful food and the ambiance and artwork were classic Santa Fe charm.

the location is Santa Fe is excellent. The lobby and first floor areas have been recently renovated and are now worthy of the historic hotel status. The staff was helpful. The bedroom suite arrangement worked very well; there was a half bath off of the living room as well as a full bath off of the bedroom.

400 pieces of extraordinary public art. Amazing professional staff. Handcrafted interior period decor. Original art in all the rooms, plus hand crafted tinwork, lamps, and embroidery. Historic ambiance and modern amenities. Best chiles rellenos possibly in the world. Great margarita menu. All this plus the very best location in old Santa Fe. I love it here.

I recently had the opportunity to stay at this hotel. It's a hotel that has been a part of my love for Santa Fe since I was a kid. My wedding reception was held at this hotel several years back, and I just have a special place in my heart for the property. It's a little pricier than I would...

Dear Ron 117, Thank you so much for your glowing review of La Fonda. One of the best things about Santa Fe is the fresh air and sleeping with the balcony door open is truly the best way to experience it.

I attended a conference at this hotel and was so taken with it, I will definitely go back. The hotel is full of history and original art and it is in the perfect location.
