COVID-19 Update

A Message to Our Guests:

The health and well-being of our guests and employees is of paramount importance to us at La Fonda on the Plaza.

We are actively monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) and will continue to follow guidelines from these agencies and local health authorities. 

We are in full compliance with all guidelines from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control as well as the New Mexico Department of Health and are following all of their recommendations and requirements.

And per new orders issued from New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, dine-in service at our restaurants has been discontinued and we now offer only take-out and room service.  

We also have closed the Spa at La Fonda and our gift shop, Detours at La Fonda until further notice.  We are fully compliant with the state order to limit hotel occupancy to 50% of capacity during this emergency.

We continue to remind our staff members of everyday actions to help prevent the spread of germs, including:

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Staying home when you are sick.
  • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash.  Or, sneeze/cough into your elbow if no tissue is within reach.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes – telephone, door handles, keyboards, desk surface.
  • Washing your hands, thoroughly and frequently!
  • Practice distancing – avoid being in groups of more than 5, use the elbow bump instead of a handshake, stand 6 feet away from another person.

The comfort and peace of mind of our guests is our top priority.  We have implemented the following housekeeping measures:

  • Upon guest checkout each guest room is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by staff wearing sterile gloves. 
  • All bedding is washed with disinfecting detergents at high temperatures. 
  • Rugs, drapes, furniture and surfaces are sprayed/wiped with an antibacterial sanitizing product. 
  • Each guest room is kept out of service for four days before a new guest is checked in.
  • Public areas are aggressively attended by our housemen wearing sterile gloves and surfaces are sprayed with disinfectant and wiped down hourly.
