“Outstanding Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2011

I just had the most pleasurable stay at the La Fonda. The staff, in particular Joe and Brenda, at the front desk. We left some things in our room and when I called, Joe asked housekeeping to check the room. He called back within minutes to tell me they located my items and I had them on my doorstep within two days. Amazing responsiveness! Thank you all for a wonderful stay.

My wife and I stayed at La Fonda for her birthday. It's a beautiful hotel with a wonderful history. We loved the room, the food and the location. The staff was courteous and the service was excellent. We will choose La Fonda the next, and every time we visit Santa Fe.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel was remodeled in the 1920's and it is unique. The adobe-like walls, spanish floor tiles, painted window panes are charming. the staff is pleasant and helpful.
The food is great and it was one of the best places we ate in Santa Fe.
Free Wifi and lovely lobby. Right on the plaza so very convenient.

This historic hotel has something to look at in every corner. You could spend a day wandering around the lobby and hallways gazing at the beautiful artwork, architecture, and decor. The restaurant is a gorgeous, sunny room with superior food and service. Our suite had 2 bathrooms, a large living room, separate bedroom and a balcony looking out into the hills of Santa Fe. The icing on the cake however, was the untouchable service that La Fonda extends to its guests. We felt as if Pauline, Dennis and Joe at the front desk could not do enough for us. They were happy to spend time with us each day answering all of our questions about local real estate, resturants, shopping, etc. Omar our porter was always on hand to help with parking logistics and whatever else we needed. We loved our stay at this hotel and will surely return.

Room Tip: Low season pricing is extremely affordable

This was one of many trips to Santa Fe and La Fonda but this was by far the best experience ever. From making the initial reservation, talking with Jessica by phone about using my gift certificate, to the arrival and warm greeting by Dennis at the front desk, I could not have asked for more. Dennis was amazing! He has the perfect personality and charm plus the professional demeanor and knowledge to make you feel that you are the most special guest in the property. Staff in every part of the operation were 5 diamond quality. Dinner and breakfast were wonderful, food and service was exceptional and the renovations in the restaurant since I last visited were really well done. The location can't be beat, easy access to shops and museums. La Fonda holds such wonderful memories for me and this trip reminds me that it is not so much the building as it is the staff who provide such a rich experience. To Dennis and all the others, thank you for the memories and I will be back soon!

Spent a long weekend in Santa Fe and stayed at La Fonda hotel. It was a great hotel. Service, accomodations, and food were all good. Room was very comfortable and inviting. Will definitely stay there again. Brenda at front desk was particularly helpful at check in.

Room Tip: First stay. Good rate due to off season visit.
