I just recently stayed at the La Fonda for my wedding. 1) I visited most of the "top rated" hotels in Santa Fe and La Fonda was the winner all because of Samie Doerfler. Not only was the La Terraza breath taking, Samie was the one who sold me. She made sure that my reception was everything I could have...

I stayed at this property in June for a business trip. The property was a little dated but definitely kept neat and clean. The lobby area is super busy because of the restaurants and shops connected. The elevators were not working properly the entire time we were there. You either waited for the elevator for a long time or you...

I had the pleasure of a recent stay at this beautiful establishment. The room was absolutely one of the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The housekeeping staff was amazing, and the grounds were impeccable! But the best treat of all was the knowledgeable Concierge Eric. Not only was he able to provide some of the best tips ever,...

Been traveling about the world in a wheelchair for 30 years and did not have to ask for ANY changes or accommodations to meet my needs.

Stayed once again in La Fonda in Santa Fe in June 2015. Never disappointed! Lovely hotel, good food and drinks, nice shopping. Conveniently located in center of town and walking distance from all restaurants, plaza, and shops. Don't miss the Bell Tower on 5th floor for happy hour and amazing views!!

We have stayed here before; a few times. We always book well in advance so that we can get a room right on the square and look out on it hopefully. This is not a standard American motel/hotel like a Hampden Inn or Marriott. This is an old hotel modernized to fit what was there; small rooms. Each room is...

Stayed for 2 nights a La Fonda. Well worth the money, as it has a great rooftop bar with wonderful views of the city and mountains. Really nice location. Quick check-in, nice parking garage and restaurant. They had a bottle of Champagne chilling in the room when we arrived! Great staff. We had a Superior Room with a balcony. Very...

Our family has just returned from our stay at the La Fonda Hotel where our youngest daughter's wedding was held. Samie Doerfler, the wedding coordinator at the hotel is the consummate professional.

This is a beautiful hotel but I was gravely disappointed when on the second day of my five day stay I found that someone (not me) had eaten some of the chocolates I had purchased. I reported this to the front desk who proceeded to check the codes in my door to see who had been in my room. After...
