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, which 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.
