Stay at the vibrant landmark hotel on historic Santa Fe plaza

La Fonda Hotel is a Santa Fe classic. This downtown hotel has firmly held its place in the heart of the city for nearly a century.

Don't miss sunset on the rooftop bar, the highest in the city.

Great retreat from the ordinary

After checking in, we were unhappy with original room. Staff spent considerable time helping us find a room we liked. While the view was not great, it was quiet at all hours. Maintenance and housekeeping are the best I have experienced.
