A vibrant historic landmark on Santa Fe's downtown Plaza, La Fonda hotel is known for its award-winning architecture and decor, excellent service and amenities, unique artwork and much more. Just steps away from history and art museums, a wide variety of galleries and shops, historic churches, and, of course, the Plaza.

Each of La Fonda's 167 rooms and suites is colorful and unique, featuring hand painted furniture and other artistic touches, from tile murals to whimsical wall accents. Some rooms have traditional vigas and latillas and others have fireplaces and private balconies. La Fonda is a Smoke Free Hotel.

The La Fonda was as beautiful and comfortable as all the reviews said. The rooms are a bit small but all the same very comfortable and attractive. The rooftop lounge has a great view and location is perfect. You can walk along Canyon road and visit the art galleries and check out the historic plaza. The concierge made us a reservation at a fantastic local restaurant and we enjoyed our stay there in every way. The power went out all over downtown the morning we were there and the hotel had coffee and water for everyone. I can't say enough about how well we enjoyed ourselves while staying there.

Best location downtown

Right in the center of the town, but of course you pay for the location. Parking is tough. Hotel parking is extra, but once you are parked, the shops and tourist spots are walking distance. La Fonda has the reputation for pampering its guests and did not disappoint. Rooms have original artwork and come with all the amenities expected from a high-end well-run place. Very enjoyable and cannot be compared to ordinary travel accommodations.

Lovely hotel, quaint, lively. Rooms clean, hardwood floors with area rug and decorative bed made the experience. I would have like to access the TVs HMDI port in room to connect my Apple TV. Oh well.

Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of the tourist area

Very comfortable beds/linens, delicious food (room service), excellent location, and a fantastic collection of artwork including hand painted headboards. We were a little disappointed to be placed in a room directly next to the elevator because it was a bit noisy. I also don't like being charged for parking at hotel parking lots, I feel nickel and dimed as a guest when that happens.

Beautiful place to stay

The location couldn't be better -- right at the town center. The hotel is full characters. Room decoration is charming. Strongly recommend it to anyone traveling to Santa Fe.

great Hotel!

Wonderful time in Santa Fe!! The Hotel is at the best part of town. Very comfortable and clean rooms. A little expensive, but was worth. During the day walk around the cute city and shops. At night the convenience to go to the bar at the hotel to have fun with live music and cold beer.

Pleasantly surprised

Hotel staff very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Room was comfortable, clean and fantastic. Location was obviously perfect; food and shopping convenient. Parking garage fee seemed a little high. I'll need to compare to other nearby, similar hotels. Short trip for some R & R. Outfitter picked me up at hotel and had a fantastic hike up Aspen Vista Trail.
