La Fonda on the Plaza

save place
A Venerable, Classic Institution
Yes, it's big and bustling, but this classic pueblo-style landmark (it opened in 1922) is a perfect place to rest your weary head. Designed by the visionary female architect Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, the 180 rooms were recently renovated to maintain the authentic Southwestern look and feel. Think handcrafted furniture and painted headboards. For the full Santa Fe experience, request a room with a cozy fireplace or balcony. In the early evenings, retreat upstairs to the well-traversed Bell Tower Bar for a light snack and a margarita.
