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. Every room offers, FREE high speed wireless Internet access, coffeemaker, terrycloth bath robes, personal safe, data port telephones, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, individual climate control, cable television and pay-per-view movies and valet laundry is also available.

WHAT A GREAT HOTEL

Best staff we have encountered in 50 years of travel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The meals were great in the lounge and the entertainment was super. The decor is fitting and beautiful. This is what a hotel can and should be, but seldom is.

Excellent Santa Fe experience!

I have visited Santa Fe a number of times in the past, but have never stayed at the La Fonda. Excellent location to all that the Plaza has to offer, great drinks and snacks at the bar in the evening, and surprisingly comfortable beds made our stay fantastic!

I always eat at The Shed when I'm in Santa Fe. The NM food is delicious, but the hot fudge sundae at the end is a little treat you can't get anywhere else.

This place has all the character!

The stay was great. It just does not get any better when you consider location, charm, staff and the level of cleanliness was excellent. I have stayed at all the main upper end Places including Inn of Five Graces. LaFonda is just plain fun! 5 stars for me

Nice place to stay

A great location for the Easter weekend. Very close to Cathedral. Easy access around the Plaza towards other directions in the city. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Loved it!

Love this hotel and staff.

At check in [...] at the desk was friendly and put us in a suite. [...]. Our room had a living room with it's own bathroom and a bedroom with it's own bathroom and a small deck overlooking the pool and nearby historic church! The hotel is beautiful with several great restaurants and shops. it is right in the heart of Sante Fe. The concierge was very helpful. [...] at the front desk helped me with wireless computer issue and they have a free business center with computers and printer. Live music in bar. Great food and drinks. Room service brought cocktails and food out to pool! Nice! Rooftop sunset bar is great. Perfect!!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

La Fonda is right in the middle of town so you can make stops back at hotel to freshen up, go for a swim, take a nap, and then just walk out the front door to your next adventure.

Everything we were expecting-fantastic.

As I mentioned, the bathrooms are small and have no ventilation, i.e. ceiling fan. Everything else was perfect, including room, food service, pools and employees.
