U.S. News Review

Like many of the elite hotels in Santa Fe, La Fonda has a rich history — this landmark property has been welcoming Santa Fe visitors since 1929. And according to guests, the hotel has aged well: Many describe La Fonda as charming and enchanting, marveling at the pueblo-style architecture and Native American artifacts. The guest rooms also feature this type of decor, as well as modern comforts such as flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Travelers also rave about the friendly and attentive staff and the mouthwatering cuisine served at La Plazuela. Just as its name suggests, you can find this hotel on the famous Santa Fe Plaza; a location that has attracted such visitors as fur trappers, gold miners, businessmen and families for centuries. However, some guests warn that La Fonda's central location can mean the surrounding streets stay a bit noisy through the night.
