The La Fonda hotel was the most wonderful experience. The staff, from parking attendants, to restaurant staff, to front desk associates made our stay extraordinary. Our room was perfect in every way. The bed linens were luxurious. It couldn't have been more perfect. This is the only hotel we will EVER stay in again while in Santa Fe. This hotel...

Excellent Hotel. I've been to Santa Fe many, many times and have stayed in most of the downtown hotels throughout the years. This was, by far, my best experience. La Fonda has an excellent location and their customer service was well beyond my expectations. From the moment I arrived, they treated me like no other I can recall visiting. There...

Old Santa Fe feel n more. I stayed here overnight but felt it was to short of time. I will definitely revisit this magical Southwestern home. Staff are highly effective n kind. Closer to plaza than expected. Enjoyed nightlife activities within one block radius.

Nice hotel and very nice suites! Easy walking to all the shops around the square. The church and museum across the street. Since it was New Years, the restaurants were crowded so you really needed to make reservations ahead. Our suite was great with 2 bathrooms, 1 shower, sitting area, bedroom and balcony. All the staff was so friendly and...

My husband and I have been traveling this month to break up the winters in Michigan. One of our favorite stays is at the LaFonda in Santa Fe. When we arrived, we were greeted by Adam , who loaded our luggage and directed us to check in . Once there, Anita went above and beyond to see that we were...

This is an amazing & affordable place to stay. The restaurant downstairs was delicious. It is located in the middle of the Plaza, near churches, galleries, and walking distance to Canyon Road. My 10-year-old son loved the hotel and the galleries.

La Fonda is a lovely place to stay, dine and shop. Their staff members are friendly and professional. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and very attractive. In fact, you feel cherished and who doesn't want to feel cherished? The hotel is very central and has a shuttle service to the Opera House. I recently heard that when white peaches are...

Restaurant is amazingly good. Bar is fun. People are friendly. Upgrading the room is a good idea as the base rooms are very small. They are nice, just small. We stayed on concierge level and they had snacks, waters, and personal service! Great stay at la Fonda!

Very pretty hotel and beds are comfortable. Wish the bathrooms were bigger not much space for your stuff. Shower is weird as there is no door on it so glad they give you lots of towels. Also nice to have in room coffee but it's pretty bad coffee. Lots of great shops on property and restaurant gets busy. We enjoyed...

They remodeled the hotel last year and did an excellent job making it more appealing and open. We have traditionally stayed at other hotels when visiting but staying at La Fonda was a real treat - the service was excellent and being right in the square was a huge plus - so close to the shops and amenities. We love...
