More about La Fonda on the Plaza:
La Fonda is a historic, luxury hotel in the heart of Santa Fe and is the only hotel on the Santa Fe Plaza. La Fonda was built in 1922, but city records indicate that there has been a hotel or inn on this corner of the plaza since Santa Fe’s founding in 1607. The hotel was a Harvey House until 1969, operated by the Harvey Company, who had a legendary reputation for hospitality and “civilizing” the Old West. La Fonda has a long history of supporting the visual arts, and continues that legacy with an ever-growing collection of over 400 pieces of art throughout the hotel—featuring both traditional and contemporary Southwestern art.
Vibrant decor and authentic New Mexican architecture intermingle with indulgent amenities including complimentary Wi-Fi, concierge services, free water, Nespresso machine, complimentary art & history tours 4 days a week, a business center and much more. Each of our 180 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites present an opportunity to experience the elegance of our property, boasting original artwork and hand-crafted furniture and luxury amenities.
An authentic example of one of Santa Fe's 4-Diamond hotels, La Fonda on the Plaza offers three classic New Mexican dining experiences including a one-of-a-kind, seasonal, outdoor cocktail bar. Breathtaking event venues showcase views of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, creating an idyllic location for Santa Fe weddings and events while stately meeting rooms and a complimentary business center make La Fonda the ideal solution for your business meetings and corporate travel.
