Forty years ago we stayed at the La Fonda on our honeymoon and this year my husband chose to relive the experience. Upon check-in, unfortunately, we were not greeted very warmly by the gentleman who checked us in. We were, however, given a spotless and lovely room on the 5th floor with a great view. The hotel restaurant accommodated us... More

With a location adjacent to the plaza and well appointed, comfortable (and recently renovated) rooms, La Fonda is a solid choice for a traveler looking for upscale accommodations in the heart of Santa Fe. I recently spent 3 nights here and was particularly impressed with the quality of our room. The deluxe king room was surprisingly large, filled with original... More

I have almost never been so impressed by the service in a hotel. Arrived exhausted after midnight and was well taken care of. When Hertz's confirmed rental car failed to be "available," Concierge Pamela moved heaven and earth to find us one last minute on busy holiday weekend. Ben at the Enterprise desk gave 150%, and we were one of... More

We stayed one night at the La Fonda in Santa Fe. It is a beautiful, old hotel that has been updated with lovely features. The beds are very comfortable and I love the fact that the tub was large enough for a long soak! The valets, concierge and front desk staff could not be nicer. They were very helpful from... More

We stayed here for the first time last night - such a beautiful and authentic property. It's right on the plaza and includes indoor parking. Parking is limited in Santa Fe. Walk to countless shops and restaurants. The room was awesome. Huge. With a fireplace, balcony overlooking the Main Street, roomy modern bathroom. All amenities. I loved this place.
