La Fonda on the Plaza, Santa Fe
WE stayed one night for our anniversary. It is in a great location, affordable and the rooms were small but very nice and clean. I would stay again.

The hotel was outstanding. Very quaint with a lot of character. Location is great. Nothing but positive things to say.

Service and attitude could use an upgrade
La Fonda was ok---comfortable and clean, However, there was little in the very ordinary service that matched the decor or the history of the place. The drinks at the bar, and the bar food was, again, just ok. What really spoiled the stay was the $43 charge for two days parking, especially after I had been told parking was free at check in. We wont be back.
