  • Great Location, Super Staff, Good Food

    by hirschwrites on 2019-06-23 04:36 pm

    We were on the top floor in Room 500 ... a great suite with balcony. Decor and artwork all through the hotel are top notch. Staff excellent. Valet parking required, but needed in this city. Would stay here again for sure.

  • Fun visit

    by adventuretraveler4 on 2019-06-22 04:56 am

    This hotel is fabulous. It has character, ambience and a friendly staff, ideal location . I had mistakenly booked a king bed room instead of 2 separate beds. (Actually, a third party site had changed my reservation to the king and I had not noticed) The hotel went out of its way to correct my mistake. The room was beyond nice. It was on the terrace level, which I highly recommend. It is worth the extra $$ with the perfect weather for relaxing outside. Also,the bathroom was very nice with both a shower and a large bathtub. The cleaning staff was especially helpful and nice. We had drinks and dinner in the beautiful room shown on their ad. It's not outside, but with a glass roof, so it feels outside. Book in advance, it gets very crowded. The organic margaritas are great. Prices were reasonable for a hotel.
    My only disappointment was the concierge. He promised to call early the next morning to arrange a rental car ( he had connections with hertz). Since I could not get a car through the internet and car rental places in Santa Fe are closed on the weekend, I gave him a generous tip. The next morning he did not even seem to remember his promise and we did not get a rental car. Santa Fe fortunately is so great, we just walked around more.

  • Charming Hotel in a Great Location

    by mom2017 on 2019-06-21 12:38 am

    We enjoyed staying at La Fonda on the Plaza. The location of the hotel was perfect and the room was clean and charming. The food in the restaurant was delicious. When we checked in, there was a problem as I reserved a room with 2 queen beds for 2 adults and 1 teenager, yet the front desk explained that the hotel was almost full and only had a small rooms with 1 king bed reserved for our family. The hotel offered to put a roll away in the room which would have been tight but doable. An hour later, I received a call from the front desk apologizing for the mistake and the hotel offered our family an additional room free of charge. The hotel employee told me he looked at the reservation again and realized that they had truly made a mistake and wanted to correct their mistake. I was impressed as I had not complained about the room. Hotels frequently make mistakes but rarely offer a free room to correct their mistake. All in all we had a great experience and will stay at La Fonda on the Plaza again!

  • Simple but aged rooms, aggressive service and high costs

    by luxurytraveljunkies on 2019-06-21 12:22 am

    Stayed here for one night. Last night I will stay at this hotel. For the high price you receive very simple but aged rooms and aggressive service upon check-in and check-out. By the way, I did mention this review to the gentleman at the reception this morning who would not print out my final hotel receipt - weird.

    Owner Response
    Dear luxurytraveljunkies,
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay... some of the attraction of an historic property is that we have a huge variety of room types and sizes. La Fonda was built in 4 phases over the past 100 years and covers an entire city block, with multiple floor levels.
    Getting around the property can be very confusing, so I have instructed our staff to be outgoing and anticipate that guests may need directions and help with their luggage, even if they may not think so at first. If this was interpreted as aggressive hospitality, I certainly apologize.
    Without more details, I can't comment on the receipt issue, possibly you booked through a 3rd party travel site, some of them have confidential net rates with us.
    Thank you once again,

    Rik Blyth
    General Manager

  • From A Bygone Era...

    by Hugemaniac1 on 2019-06-20 09:47 am

    This truly is a wonderful old property, lovingly restored to capture the flavor of the past. Rooms were spacious, well appointed and the sleep experience was superb. The only down sides were a "fitness center" which was completely substandard for a property of this caliber. The website inaccurately depicted a facility boasting more then the 8-10 dumbbells and a few machines. The other was the lack of any outdoor seating area where one could enjoy a morning coffee. Silly that the roof top bar did not open until 3 pm.
