“Shurtliff-Spain Wedding”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

If you want the full flavor of Santa Fe, the La Fonda Hotel is the place to stay. We went to a wedding there on December 1, 2012. The hotel is very close to the square and it was decorated with beautiful lights, as was the hotel. There is so much history in this city, and when you walk into the La Fonda you feel it, The food at the reception was excellent, as well as the wedding cake. We really enjoyed the hot cider during the cocktail hour. We also enjoyed the French Bakery ( which is accessible to the hotel without going outside) for coffee. Lots of old world furnishings and architecture flow through the entire hotel. The reception hall had stain glass skylights, beautiful!
You will know you have been to Santa Fe after visiting this hotel, close to St. Francis Cathedral and walking distance to the infamous Loretto Chapel with its miraculous staircase.

The hotel in and of itself was great!! They had an amazing staff and it was a great atmosphere to be in! My auntie had her wedding at La Fonda it was truly a delight to see how the staff accommodated her and the whole 2 extended families that were there, it was spectacular. The La Fonda had a New Mexico feel to it which was great to bring people who had never been to this state before! Where the hotel was positioned is perfect for historic adventures and the artwork in the hotel told its own story! The front desk was very quick and efficient with both checking in and out, everything definitely felt so organized.

The staff is amazing, always accommodating and so helpful. My husband and I came with my entire family for a wedding and they were always had so much information to provide to us when asking any question: where to eat, where to shop, anything. The rooms are all beautiful, so clean, very antique and quaint. There is nothing more that I could have asked for from this hotel.

This hotel is a real jewel on the beautiful historic plaza of Santa Fe. We were there for a wedding and the staff was so extremely helpful and really interested that we had a wonderful experience. Loved our room, it was very quiet and uniquely decorated just like the brochure described. The decor really fits the area. The food in the restaurant was superb, the wait staff very attentive without hovering. This is a place that is worth returning to. We would like to try the private Terrace rooms also, a little more expensive but it would be fun to stay in that area. We will definitely be back.

What an amazing and beautiful time my family & I had at the La Fonda! Our family of four stayed in a comfortable, spacious, and beautifully southwestern decor room on the first floor. The staff was very accommodating and welcoming to myself AND my children. The restaurant was beautifully decorated with hand painted glass and vaulted ceilings and the Chorizo Grits/Green Chile Biscuits & Gravy were delectable! The Lounge was also very welcoming with speedy service. The hotel sits right on the plaza with all shopping, museums, and entertainment within walking distance. We have lived in NM most of our lives & cannot wait to enjoy this hotel in the future.

Terrace rooms are in a very quiet location up the private stairway with rabbit railings ala Mary Coulter. The private area and private pool make the terrace rooms worthwhile, along with your very own concierge. We arrived at check in time. The front desk was very professional and organized. Our ginormous, ultra clean terrace room had tasteful southwestern decoration and architecture. Everything in our room worked and the bathroom was immaculate. Comfy couches and chairs, lovely artwork, nooks and crannies and wood floors made for a magical stay. We drank a bottle of wine on our patio overlooking the mountains as we admired the adobe architecture of Santa Fe and enjoyed the cheese and fruit plate. I had the terrace floor's giant hot tub all to myself, and afterwards enjoyed the unique shower in the giant tiled bathroom with saloon glass doors hand painted with pigs and bunnies and flowers. Drinks are expensive and the sunset crowd is thick on the upstairs outdoor bar, so it was more romantic to enjoy our private patio.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are quite special and separate from the more standard rooms in the main part of the ho...

I could not have picked a more beautiful place for my wedding!! Me and my new husband had the time of our lives with 100+ of our closest friends and family. The accomodations WONDERFUL! The service SUPERB! The food TO DIE FOR!!! And this went well beyond the ceremony and the reception. This wonderful experience filled our entire stay making us and our guests feel WARM and WELCOME!! Thank you La Fonda -- for the memories that will truely last a lifetime!!

Room Tip: The Terraza Terrace is a but more expensive but so worth staying in at least once!
