They remodeled the hotel last year and did an excellent job making it more appealing and open. We have traditionally stayed at other hotels when visiting but staying at La Fonda was a real treat - the service was excellent and being right in the square was a huge plus - so close to the shops and amenities. We love...

Great location on the square. Beautiful hotel and rooms. It was New Years week and the only bad experience was trying to eat in the hotel restaurant during this busy time. But that is to be expected. Very friendly staff, suite was beautiful!!! Fun times!! The bar in the hotel is a fun place!! The New Years party in the...

From our nicely decorated room, to the gorgeously decorated hotel, we loved just about everything at this hotel. Even the fire hose container was painted in a floral design. There was a very nice restaurant in the lobby, a great bar too. The staff, very numerous, were very helpful and friendly. This is a perfect location to explore old Santa...

This is a fabulous hotel!!!! All of the staff went out of their way to help in any way they could. The hotel itself is so historic and yet has been brought up to modern standards. On the historic square and convenient to the whole city, the hacienda has the feel of old New Mexico (in the best of ways)....

My wife and I were able to get away to Santa Fe for the New Year's celebration on the plaza. It was important to us to stay on the plaza so that we wouldn't have to take the car anywhere. La Fonda on the Plaza was a great, albeit expensive, place to stay. The hotel is very posh and elegant....

Quite a charming hotel and I think it's the only hotel that's right on the square which makes it an A+++ location. Checking in was a breeze, very friendly and efficient. Rooms were clean and safe. All staff we encountered were super friendly. The hotel has some dated features but for a hotel of its age it was still quite...

The hotel is one of the larger hotels in Santa Fe, but it has a lot of character and charm. It is a historic hotel that has maintained a good deal of its historical charm. The location could not be better.

Great old historic hotel with fabulous location right off the square. Lots of artwork and historical charm, lively lobby and very friendly staff. Not very "upscale" but unique and comfortable. I have visited this hotel before and would again, however, don't expect any "fancy" room amenities.

Had to make a quick trip to Santa Fe and the La Fonda was the perfect place to stay, great service, room comfortable and clean. Close to restaurants and shopping. The plaza is across the street. Easy walk to anyplace in the downtown area.

This is an excellent choice for a hotel in Santa Fe. As far as we were concerned we received 5 star treatment without 5 star prices. The hotel staff are all extremely friendly (mind you most everyone in New Mexico seems friendly). The location is great, with many sites, shopping, etc within walking or a very short drive. The hotel...
