Verified Reviews of La Fonda on the Plaza

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Return visit for good reasons."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
La Fonda is always our first choice whenever we stay in Santa Fe. They rate at the top fro comfort, service and location. Our only detraction this particular trip involved room service. To be sure we received breakfast room service at the desired morning time we ordered the night before. When time approached 15 minutes late we called for status only to be told they had no record of our order. We decided to make other arrangements After a few minutes the staff called our room to tell us they had "found" our order and it would be to us in a few minutes. As we were on a tight schedule this particular trip a late meal is what we wanted to avoid. While this is not typical of La Fonda it does present room for improvement in the future.

"A welcome getaway!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My husband and I stayed for one night on our way from Scottsdale to Denver. It was the first day of reopening after CO VID 19. The hotel did an outstanding job of social distancing efforts. Everyone wore a mask, the employees were all very gracious. We had dinner at their main restaurant and felt very comfortable. The food was outstanding and the staff was excellent. We wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back when circumstances allow us more freedom to explore the art galleries. La Fonda went above and beyond what we expected!

Property Description

For lodging, dining and entertainment, La Fonda hotel – a landmark structure, grandly situated on the historic Plaza – is the Santa Fe vacation and meeting destination of choice.The “grande dame” of Santa Fe hotels, La Fonda is just steps from museums, galleries, shops and restaurants. A showcase for the work of local artisans, La Fonda is loved for many of the same reasons that Santa Fe is loved: award-winning pueblo-style Spanish architecture and décor, luxurious, inviting ambience, and warm hospitality.
