“Centrally located elegant hotel. Interiors draw on local crafts with an airy feel: cream walls are adorned with original art, beds have hand-carved and painted headboards, some rooms have fireplaces and sitting areas. Romantic dining outside at La Plazuela and rooftop bar with views over Santa Fe.”

La Fonda

La Fonda is a Santa Fe landmark, just steps away from history and art museums, a variety of galleries and shops, historic churches and, of course, the Plaza. The historic inn’s Pueblo-style architecture features thick wood beams, latilla ceilings and carved corbels. Special touches such as hand-crafted chandeliers, tin and copper lighting fixtures, and colorful tiles add character and charm. Beautiful hand-carved and hand-painted furniture and displays by local artists create a rich ambience. La Fonda has always been a local gathering spot and a hub of activity. World War II journalist Ernie Pyle wrote, “You could go there any time of day and see a few artists in the bar…a goateed gentleman from Austria or a maharajah from India or a New York broker… You never met anyone anywhere except at La Fonda.”
