Recent guest reviews

Ideal location, beautiful decor, great restaurants! It's my first visit to Santa Fe, & enjoyed your hotel.

Charming hotel with friendly staff. Location convenient.

Wasn’t impressed other than the location. The hotel itself is nice and historic but the basic comfort of the rooms (other than the bed) for the price is unacceptable. Not comfortable furniture etc.

Beautiful hotel. Well appointed, spacious rooms. Newly renovated hotel with gorgeous art. Wonderful lobby with fireplace. Concierge was the best giving us great info and telling us what to do and where to go. Restaurant food and service was spectacular. They also have a french cafe with a chef from Paris, fantastic!! Above all the staff was friendly and attentive. Turn down service every night. The location is perfect right on the town square. Great bar area. Entertainment at night.

Great staff. Only downside was they charged to park in the parking garage. Wonderful hotel, very friendly staff, perfect location.

Right in the middle of old town / plaza area, walking to all shopping, restaurants and pubs. be prepared to pay extra for parking though...

Enjoyed the stay due to nice room and friendly staff

Close to the plaza, museums and Canyon Road. This hotel has it all.

Wonderful historic building. Great art. Would be nice if breakfast were included of course. Location is outstanding

The location is within easy walking distance of historical attractions, restaurants and shopping.

We loved the hotel and the restaurant. Also, try the French bakery their breakfast was a great way to start the day!

Got a deal that was still expensive. Expected a nice, good sized room. It was smaller than most normal hotel rooms. The bed duvet was on upside down, so the strings were in our face. When we pulled it off to turn it around, we found a bunch of hair everywhere underneath the sheets. The shower was set up to be "retro" but the shower head shot straight down and only came out a couple inches from the wall. No way to get completely understand it without bumping up against the shower nob. Gross. Staff was good. But it was overpriced and we expected much more for the price we paid. I'd definitely say go some place else.

Great location, tasteful decor and designs in tradational NM style

Loved the hotel, but had pricing all over the place through Orbitz and some rooms were tiny.

The Hotel staff made our stay just wonderful. The room was very clean, the food at the restaurant was AWESOME and the location was perfect. We could not have had a better experience.

Food was fabulous, good music and dancing in the bar,hotel staff were friendly, kind and went above and beyond to help. Excellent location. Looking forward to returning!

the only reason the place was not a 5 is that they had remodeling in the lobby

We stayed 2 consecutive Mondays and had wonderful stays both times. The staff is so friendly and helpful, starting at the curb with the welcoming bellmen, easy and fast check in, delightful rooms. The recent refurbishment of this venerable hotel has added delightful local artwork throughout including the rooms. The dinners in the restaurant and breakfasts were outstanding. My last visit here was almost 40 years ago and I have looked forward to a return visit. I was not disappointed in any respect. I'm already planning a return stay.

They were doing a little remodeling by the front desk, but it was not noisy in our room, and all of the staff was helpful and nice. We had dinner there one night, and they had set up a couple of tv's for a Super Bowl party while we ate. The meal was nice, and the service, too. We would definitely go back.

LaFonda was a delightful place to stay. We found everything to be wonderful from the moment of entry into a charming lobby. The service was excellent and the food in the restaurants was tasty and very well prepared. The corridors and rooms were tastefully decorated. It is centrally located and within walking distance to everything. Sante Fe is a charming and delightful place to visit and La Fonda was the icing on the cake. I would recommend it to anyone.
