4.8 Mediocre
Pros:1. Convenient location 2. Convenient parking 3. Holiday buffet was very good in restaurant.
Cons:1. Room was very shabby and in desperate need of make-over. 2. Loud music from bar goes on every night until 11:00. Very disturbing. 3. So over-priced for what we got. 4. Did not find Stephen at the front desk to be helpful at all. 5. Will NOT use hotel again.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful, facility was in great shape. our room was unique with original art and colorful furnishings. The lobby area is large and comfortable and well used.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:The building is wonderful, a pueblo style exterior with an art-filled interior. The staff was gracious and accommodating. We loved the folk art touches scattered throughout the public places and rooms. You could hear the Basilica bells pealing and walk to the place to mingle with the tourists.
Cons:The La Fonda is a fine, venerable institution. Santa Fe has an extraordinary architectural homogeneity (in a good sense). The must have very strict zoning rules for the historical district. That being said, it all seemed a bit artificial, without the sights and sounds of real town. Not far out, there are miserable reservations with dirt-poor housing and a feeling of desolation. That is not La Fonda's fault, of course, but it is a bit shocking.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Year-in and year-out the LaFonda always sets the standard for my Santa Fe visits. Yes there are many great hotels in this wonderful town but for class, comfort, quality dining and loation you cannot beat this historic Inn.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is beautifully appointed with southwestern antiques and details. Staff was helpful and friendly. Central location and easy parking.
7.7 Good
Pros:Great location
Cons:Room not as described or pictured at all, Huge disappointment. Also first room they checked us into had someone's drinks on the desk along with other items. Also when checking in, the manager said "Oh, you booked third party". Why should that matter? Made me fell like a low class guest. Then finally after being checked in to 2 other rooms, the third room was satisfactory. Also the pool and spa is not very good. Have had much much better at a Holiday Inn Express for hot tub, pool, and fitness equipment.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Very tourist oriented. No an elegant place, but comfortable.
8.0 Very good
Pros:The bathroom was unique and the setting of the hotel was perfect. Great for spending time and walking around Santa Fe.
Cons:My view was of a parking lot.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The comfortable beds, beautiful decor, very friendly staff and good location.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:My husband and I found La Fonda a very comfortable and beautiful place to stay. The central dining room, where we often had breakfast and dinner, is a beautiful setting, with courteous staff, and excellent cuisine.
