This has always been the best hotel in Santa Fe, but last week was our first stay since the latest renovation. Our room was much nicer but the mechanicals are now spot-on and the furnishings much newer and modern. The amazing art collection and historic building are the main draws for me - take the daily tour of the hotel...

I always stay at the La Fonda when visiting Santa Fe. Been coming to this hotel for more than 20 years. The location is perfect for hanging out near the central plaza, and within walking distance to great restaurants and historical landmarks. I love the lobby with its open bar and the numerous fireplaces for sitting and just hanging out....

Each room is unique and mine had hand-painted headboards. You can't get any closer to Santa Fe's central plaza. Restaurants are delicious and not overly priced. There are also interesting shops in the hotel as well as in the surrounding area.

Service excellence and the concierge service was par excellence! Steered the solo traveler to great restaurants, museums, walks and hikes that I never would have found on my own. Bill Hearne Trio is in the Bar on Monday and Tuesday--be sure you plan to be in the bar to listen to this talented Trio, led by the fabulous Bill Hearne.

Most comfortable, relaxing hotel I've ever been to. Service and accomadations are superb. The restaurant has wonderful New Mexican food, not so easy to find in town anymore. The lounge has very interesting margaritas and the shops in the hotel are fun to check out. Go on the hotel history tour if you can.

La Fonda IS Santa Fe! Perfect location on the plaza; easy walking to restaurants, shopping, museums and sites. Quiet, comfortable room and the NICEST staff in town. Always a smile and cheerful greeting from the parking attendants to the waitstaff to the front desk lady who remembered our names. We'll be back next year!

My wife and I stayed here five nights while I was on a business trip in Santa Fe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was comfortable. It included a Keurig coffee maker, a small refrigerator, and a safe. Wifi was also complimentary, although it was a little slow at times. The staff at the hotel were friendly. When my...

The La Fonda hotel was the most wonderful experience. The staff, from parking attendants, to restaurant staff, to front desk associates made our stay extraordinary. Our room was perfect in every way. The bed linens were luxurious. It couldn't have been more perfect. This is the only hotel we will EVER stay in again while in Santa Fe. This hotel...

Excellent Hotel. I've been to Santa Fe many, many times and have stayed in most of the downtown hotels throughout the years. This was, by far, my best experience. La Fonda has an excellent location and their customer service was well beyond my expectations. From the moment I arrived, they treated me like no other I can recall visiting. There...
