I was at a conference in Santa Fe and stayed at La Fonda. The room was spacious and clean, with windows that open! The beds were quite comfortable, the food reasonable and good. The bar made one of the best margarota's I've had in a while. Brenda at the main desk was friendly and very helpful. The central location made seeing the sights between panels an easy walk.

This is the original Santa Fe resort. Right on the Plaza, you can walk out to tons of shops, restaurants and art galleries. The original part of the hotel was built in the 1920's and has smaller rooms, but they are well-appointed. The Terrace rooms are newer (1980's), and are on a concierge floor. What really sets this place apart is the service. They GET customer service here, unlike many other Santa Fe hotels where you get attitude above all else. Everyone from the front desk to the dining room and housekeeping staff went out of their way to be sure we were happy. The bell tower bar is the best place in Santa Fe to watch the sun set.

Room Tip: Try to book a terrace room.

LaFondaManager, General Manager at La Fonda on the Plaza, responded to this review, 4 May 2012
Thanks for taking the time to note your experience at La Fonda on the Plaza. I’m happy that you enjoyed your stay at “the original Santa Fe resort.” In fact, many accounts report that a fonda (Spanish for the word inn) was located on the Plaza shortly after the 1610 founding of the Villa de Santa Fe. With such a long history, our property is constantly changing with the times – so, I am glad that you had the opportunity to experience both the historic and the more modern aspects of the hotel.

We have stayed at La Fonda several times over the past several years and the Hotel is always top notch. We've stayed on business trips as well as vacations, and the staff is consistently friendly, the rooms clean and the service more than expected. You can't beat the location - right on the plaza. The hotel dining is delicious. The one drawback is the parking garage which is super tight, but understandable due to its location. Worth the visit!
