La Fonda on the Plaza Hotel Review

: There's been a hotel at the corner of the Old Santa Fe Trail and San Francisco Street, overlooking the historic Plaza, for many generations. The current property, La Fonda, dates to 1922 and boasts stately Pueblo Revival architecture and a snazzy tiled lobby decked out with fine antiques and art. The 180 guest rooms and suites continue the theme with handcrafted wooden furniture, hand-painted headboards and chests and wrought-iron lamps. Wooden beams run across the ceilings, adding to the rustic feel. One of the most appealing features at Santa Fe's only hotel directly overlooking the Plaza is the rooftop Bell Tower Bar, where you can enjoy a margarita while taking in views of the city's colorful skyline and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the distance. The rooftop terrace is also home to the property's 14 most upscale rooms and suites. On the ground floor, feast on creative Southwest classics at La Plazuela Restaurant. Spa services are available, and there are a swimming pool and fitness room on-site.
