Opened in 1929, La Fonda on the Plaza, a landmark property and AAA 4-Diamond hotel, is the oldest hotel in Santa Fe, and sits at the very end of the Santa Fe Trail within the centre of the city. Various attractions are within walking distance, such as the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe Plaza, shops and restaurants. The hotel’s lobby also has a variety of shops.
The hotel’s rich history is reflected in the décor and artwork. The lobby features hand-carved and painted beams and corbels and chandeliers made of tin, glass and copper. Hand-painted windows look out to the city, and murals depicting Native American culture hang in the lobby.
After a renovation in 2013, the guest rooms have been updated with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Luxuries such as pillow-top beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and plush robes are also a bonus here. Each room features original artwork and colourful hand-painted headboards and bathroom tiles, continuing the influence of local artists throughout the hotel. Many of the rooms feature views of St. Francis Cathedral Basilica, and upgraded rooms also feature fireplaces, separate living rooms and balconies.
Amenities include a fitness centre and steam rooms, an outdoor heated swimming pool (open all year round) and a hot tub. A spa features body treatments and massages with the option to have them in the privacy of your own room.
Dining options include La Plazuela at La Fonda, which serves up locally sourced New Mexican cuisine. Guests shouldn't miss the Bell Tower Bar, which offers stunning views of the surrounding area and mountains, and is a perfect spot to watch the sun set over a glass of wine. A New Mexican buffet is served daily in La Fiesta lounge, with live music six nights a week.
