Hotel La Fonda is very close to the Basillica, and is in a very convenient location.
This was one of the first hotels in Santa Fe created by the Atchison,Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company. This train line allowed goods to be transported more quickly and efficiently, and thus avoiding the arduous cross country trails. It also created the beginning of tourism to the area.
La Plazuela is an attractive place to eat in the hotel. It is situated in a beautifully decorated area in the middle of the hotel. Flowers, trailing greenery and skylights make the restaurant inviting.
An interesting selection of high end stores are within the hotel and right next to this restaurant.
