Santa Fe Plaza Central

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Our desire to stay at La Fonda was all about experiencing their remodel of the rooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful but I could not shake the feeling, entering the extended lobby, of a bus or train station. All over people were "waiting" and sitting around. It was indeed different than in other hotels. Maybe it is because of their perfect central location and maybe it was because of the snowy chilly weather outside. The king rooms were nice and clean but small. I was happy we had a big closet so we could put our two small suitcases in there otherwise there would have been no walking around the bed room. Very disappointed with the bathroom remodel as I expected mexican tiles and color in their. The whole bathroom, nicely done however, was white. There was one small mural in the very vlean and well working shower. Wonderful bed linens. Comfortable beds. Beautiful hand painted headboards, which are hidden by the pillows. New windows but no updated doirs. One can hear people in the hallway. Especially a child crying in the hallway at 3:00-ish in the morning!!! The restaurant La Plazuela: very good. Wonderful guacamole made table side. Chiles Relleno were good and more than ample. Good and friendly service. I would go again but I thought the rate of $275 for a small room was a bit much.

Great location. Awesome Margaritas.

Parking $16/night. Great French bakery onsite. Good food in lounge and strong drinks - or maybe it was just the altitude!

Excellent location-walking distance to everything!

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Great location, great food, great staff. The room was large and well-supplied with towels and necessities. Loved the stores too!
Cons: The 3am noise on the street downstairs. Some people are simply disrespectful but it wasn't the hotel's fault or responsibility to eliminate idiots.
Location: I can't say enough good things about the location. It was right in the middle of all the sites!
We had a lovely stay here in beautiful Santa Fe, NM. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the location was great - we didn't use the car for 2 days, we just walked the wonderful city - the sites were historic and well kept, the hotel food was delicious, and the staff was extremely friendly.

LaFonda Exceeds All Expectations!

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Pros: Staff, food, art work, decor, even parking attendants outstanding!
Cons: NOTHING!
Location: Plaza of course, but City Tour excellent...the Contemporary Art Museum was terrible!
We have been to Sante Fe often, first time at La Fonda. Every aspect outstanding from friendliness of initial meeting with garage attendants, to Jasmine at check, to restaurant servers. Excellent food in restaurant for breakfast and dinner at reasonable prices. Excellent live music in bar each evening. Incredible original art work through out. We will be back!

Location was excellent.

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Located just east of the historic plaza makes it easy to walk to the square and restaurants. La Fonda restaurant was lovely. Driving in the historic area is a bit of a challenge with narrow and many one way streets. Smaller cars would make navigation a breeze. All in all, you can't go wrong staying at La Fonda. A beautiful, historic hotel with excellent staff and amenities.

Great historic hotel in great location.

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Cons: If you really like bath tubs, this hotel is not for you. Room had only shower.
Loved that hotel had history, but was in very good condItion with up to date rooms. Great location. Staff was very good too.
