We loved the idea of staying right on the plaza where restaurants and shopping were all within a short walk. Worried the hotel would be noisy but it was surprisingly quiet since the shops closed pretty early. We also loved the hotel and rooms were updated with a Taos feel and the staff was super friendly. And to top it...

A clean property with an excellent mezzanine for checking emails and the like. The room was very nice with a decorative fireplace. The bathroom was small but to be expected in an historic building. Staff was fine. The display of the D.H. Lawrence was very interesting. The only issue, minor, was the WiFi was spotty at best. It did not...

The hotel has recently undergone a renovation according to their brochures. It kinda shows - maybe? The hotel is filled with odd stairways that lead to some rooms or to mini-lobbies. If you cannot manage stairs there are very few rooms accessible for you. Our room was at the top of several flights of stairs, was warm because of the...

My wife and I needed a hotel in Taos for two nights, and we wanted to be located near the Plaza--we also needed parking for our rental car. This hotel met all of our needs for about $140 per night (and parking was free). Since it was "off" season our room, which overlooked the plaza, was not noisy (as others...

Just returned form a 4 night stay and we rented the two bedroom "suite". The hotel is nor affiliated with the La Fonda in Santa Fe, and it is definitely not on the same level. That said, the staff were very nice and the room was adequate, but I had hoped for more for the money. One bummer was the...

Hotels can all be said to meet standards and others like the Hotel La Fonda de Taos is light years above. It may be the staff who are super friendly and walking historians or the fact it shows a style of building with class.

We loved our stay at Hotel LaFonda de Taos with its rustic old world charm. Our room and bathroom were small but clean and very cozy. The location is perfect right on a very pretty plaza, park and walk to shops and food. The hotel had cozy seating spots - my favorite was a loft on the second floor. We...

My friend and I stayed here with pretty much zero plan or reason to be in Taos. We wanted to snowshoe and we wanted to eat well. We found this gem of a hotel! The rooms were just the right size (we had two suitcases each) and i loved the amenities! It's a city center hotel-- but I didn't find...

This is an old historic hotel right on the main plaza in Taos. If you like the historic value then by all means stay here. Staff was very good, no problems with reservations, and gave us helpful hints. Main lobby has wonderful art, and restaurant on property is nice and we had a fun talk with the chef as no...
