I love the LaFonda! I’ve been coming to Santa Fe for over a decade. Eating, drinking and shopping there has been a ritual but this is the first time I’ve been a guest at the hotel. It is fabulous. Rich in history and beautifully appointed it should be a must stay on everyone’s bucket list!!!

A good stay in an interesting, historic hotel

An interesting, historic hotel in an amazing location. As is the case with many older hotels, the room was comfortable but very small. Interior could use an update-but everything worked and it was fine for a solo traveller. The patio bar on the 5th floor has a great sunset view. The nespresso machine in the room is a nice touch. For couples or larger families, I would recommend booking a larger room or seeking a stay elsewhere due to room size.
