Amazing Hotel! Fantastic Staff!

Such a beautiful hotel filled with original artworks and gorgeous inspirations! The history is as intriguing as the one-of-a-kind works of art adorning the rooms and corridors. Location was equally amazing, set between the St. Francis Cathedral and the Loretto Chapel, with the Plaza Market within steps of the hotel's front door. Couldn't recommend La Fonda more highly! Stayed March 2018, traveled as a couple

What a Perfect Place to Stay

This was our first trip ever to Santa Fe and we lucked out choosing La Fonda on the Plaza!! It was perfect in every way. The location was great... right in the middle of all the action. The room was comfortable and lovely. The staff was attentive and helpful. We ate at the restaurant one night and it was GREAT too! We loved every minute of our quick get away weekend. September 2018, traveled as a couple

Every aspect was enjoyable!

My partner and I stayed at La Fonda for three nights and I enjoyed our time as much or more than any other hotel stay. The staff was helpful and friendly, from the concierge to the parking attendant. The food at La Plazuela, the restaurant, was excellent. And it was fun just to wander around the halls and look at the art. Even the hotel gift shop was fun.  I would swear I spent three whole days there without seeing anyone on his or her cell phone. There was just too much art and people watching all around to be distracted by anything else. I highly recommend a stay here, preferably for more than a day.   Stayed March 2018, Traveled as a couple

Best 5 Days in Last 10 Months

The five days at La Fonda, in that beautiful quarter on the terrace floor, that Jacqueline & I were privileged to enjoy…was probably the best five days of the last 10 months. We are forever grateful to you for once again accommodating us. And by the way, we invited some Santa Fe friends to join us for dinner in the restaurant, La Plazuela: Your chefs are world class. And your hotel staff is marvelous, friendly & very very helpful. Thank you for your graciousness. Wishing you the very best, Mark & Jacqueline Margolis
