Our Reviews

Wonderful Rooms and Great Attitude

Hi Desireé, I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with NAFSMA’s Annual Meeting. We really appreciate all that you did to make us look good and the way you all work together as a team! For our side, it really really helps. The rooms (meeting and guest – were wonderful (heard no complaints at all about rooms – which was wonderful). Also having our leadership on the terrace level helped so much and they really enjoyed it so much – our members and spouses were well taken care of at all times and that helped so much to create such a positive attitude. Thank you so much for making that happen. Please let us know if we can provide any recommendations to interested folks for future meetings. Happy to write up something for you. Susan Gilson, Executive Director, NAFSMA

Excellent Service

Hi Jenny, I wanted to say thank you again for your excellent service and support of our conference event. Your diligence and flexibility made my job so much easier. The venue was a highlight for our attendees, and many asked that we return back in a few years. Overall the service at the hotel was amazing. Maureen Foerster, Director of Institutional Memberships & Meetings Textbook & Academic Authors Association

Highly Recommended

I want to thank you and your team for what most of our members are calling the best conference yet. It was truly a pleasure to work with everyone at La Fonda. The food and service were exemplary and significant factors in making the event successful. Although we may never have the chance to return as a group we will heartily recommend La Fonda and I am sure many of us will be back of our own accord. Many Thanks, David Cooper Stairbuilder's and Manufacturer's Association

Outstanding Hotel Exceeded Expectations

I worked with the key personnel at LaFonda for 1.5 years for my high school's 50th reunion. Everything at the hotel exceeded expectations. The service was out of this world. Whether it was getting upgraded rooms, setting the menu, audio visual, hospitality suite, concierge services, music in the bar, etc. In one case we could not get a restaurant to answer so the concierge walked over and got the reservation. The food at our banquet in La Terraza ballroom was excellent. Not hotel food but food like you would have at home or one of your favorite restaurants. We did a one hour free docent tour of LaFonda and the history is just amazing. From the bellman to the General Manager, this hotel is outstanding. Interfacing with the Sales manager and the catering department was a real pleasure. If you want to plan a major event with a hotel that exceeds expectations go to La Fonda on the Plaza.  Glenbrook North HS Reunion

Amazing Staff and Service

Jenny, it was a meeting that our attendees will be talking about for some time.  We always stay in nice hotels, but your staff was unequaled with their attentiveness and caring attitude toward our “diverse” group.  The weather was AMAZING!  It was good for everyone to be able to get outside and walk around the city, have a great meal, and enjoy the beautiful architecture.  It made a huge difference in their well-being over the two-week period.  I also appreciate how well Vickie worked with our KBRwyle/Raytheon arrangement the second week.  Everyone “made it work”, and I truly appreciated that. I am sure other meetings will start thinking seriously about Santa Fe, now that we’ve opened that possibility to them. Thank you for everything. Janet E. Deaton, CGMP, KBRwyle
