Celebrated my 74th birthday in the historic and romantic La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe. Everything was perfect from check in to check out. Our room was a suite with a balcony and view of the Loretta Chapel and rooftops of Santa Fe. Bed was King with a most comfortable mattress. Breakfast and lunch in La Plazuela Restaurant...

We have stayed at the La Fonda several times over the last 10 years but since they have renovated I must say that it is excellent. We were able to enjoy live music in the lounge on Saturday evening. It was a great way to spend Mother's Day weekend. The room was beautiful and the staff was extremely helpful.

Love love love LaFonda, which was a Fred Harvey hotel. The restaurants and shopping on the Plaza are wonderful. I always enjoy the short walk down to the Lensic for a concert. Make sure you try the French bakery for a quick breakfast.

Situated on the S E corner of the historic Santa Fe Plaza, La Fonda Hotel has been offering luxurious accommodations for discriminating guests since the late 1920s. Across the street from the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica built in 1888, La Fonda is right in the heart of Santa Fe at the very end of the Santa Fe Trail. There are...

This is my second visit to Santa Fe and I am throughly enjoying the location of La Fonda. The staff has all been very friendly and tried to accommodate any request. The location of our particular room is not awesome but it is functional. We are overlooking the roof of an adjacent building. The roof also necessitates that our room...

Enjoyed our two night stay. Service when I called and after check-in was very good. People were friendly and helpful. Property is in a wonderful location...on the Plaza. Building is beautifully renovated. Our room was very nice and bed comfortable, but small. Bathroom was not private...everyone in the room knew what was happening. Lobby was always crowded, never quiet. Will...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at La Fonda! The location could not be more perfect, as it is right on the plaza, in front of the cathedral, which makes it walking distance from all the downtown Santa Fe fun! The hotel is so southwest, which I loved. The hotel has not given up its southwest charm in favor of a...

I love this hotel for its location, historic significance, bustling lobby, and great value. This is one of many charming hotels across the southwest designed by the dynamic duo of Fred Harvey and Mary Colter in the 1920's that my husband and seek out. The attention to design detail throughout the building and original art collection are impressive. The lobby...
