The bathroom was unique and the setting of the hotel was perfect. Great for spending time and walking around Santa Fe. My view was of a parking lot.
The hotel is beautifully appointed with southwestern antiques and details. Staff was helpful and friendly. Central location and easy parking.
My husband and I found La Fonda a very comfortable and beautiful place to stay. The central dining room, where we often had breakfast and dinner, is a beautiful setting, with courteous staff, and excellent cuisine.
Very tourist oriented. No an elegant place, but comfortable.
The building is wonderful, a pueblo style exterior with an art-filled interior. The staff was gracious and accommodating. We loved the folk art touches scattered throughout the public places and rooms. You could hear the Basilica bells pealing and walk to the place to mingle with the tourists. The La Fonda is a fine, venerable institution. Santa Fe has an extraordinary architectural homogeneity (in a good sense). The must have very strict zoning rules for the historical district. That being said, it all seemed a bit artificial, without the sights and sounds of real town. Not far out, there are miserable reservations with dirt-poor housing and a feeling of desolation. That is not La Fonda's fault, of course, but it is a bit shocking.
I liked everything about this hotel. The room was wonderful, the staff excellent and polite, the restaurant was wonderful, and the location was the best. It even included free parking in a covered garage. Every aspect of this hotel was excellent.
Great location Room not as described or pictured at all, Huge disappointment. Also first room they checked us into had someone's drinks on the desk along with other items. Also when checking in, the manager said "Oh, you booked third party". Why should that matter? Made me fell like a low class guest. Then finally after being checked in to 2 other rooms, the third room was satisfactory. Also the pool and spa is not very good. Have had much much better at a Holiday Inn Express for hot tub, pool, and fitness equipment.
Year-in and year-out the LaFonda always sets the standard for my Santa Fe visits. Yes there are many great hotels in this wonderful town but for class, comfort, quality dining and loation you cannot beat this historic Inn.
The comfortable beds, beautiful decor, very friendly staff and good location.
Location is fantastic. Included breakfast options are good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean. The room is a little too small for two queen beds, leaving just barely enough room to move around. With two people, it was cramped, but fortunately we did not spend much time actually in the room.
That's a 2 stray
My advice is to stay at Hampton instead. Add on parking fees are inherently dishonest. It not only cheats the customer but also the state and city since sales taxes are not collected and, presumably not paid on the fee. They charged me $10.00 per night. Stupid marketing and dishonest too.

The location was good, front desk staff was amazing. Beautiful bar with outdoor firepit/lounge area. The carpet in the room felt moist. Room was stuffy and incredibly tight (my husband and I were constantly climbing over each other).
Location Breakfast was adequate, although extra charge for a burrito. Plenty of hot water Rude front desk staff. Amenities were not up to a 3 star. Parking fee. Outside rooms. (Safety issue) Old style tv with poor picture quality. Porn station part of regular viewing channels...not appropriate. Vending machines broken. Ice Machine dirty.
Location Parking fees
Very friendly staff, and the free shuttle to the square My shower was bad, water were either scalding hot or cold.
Shuttle service was great and breakfast was fine The pool is tiny...just so they can check off the box that they have one and was quite dirty. The rooms are very basic and dingy.
Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, quiet and good energy. Free shuttle to downtown. Restaurant (with a decent menu including vegetarian and vegan options!) and bar inside the Inn with live music during the week. Free wifi. Rooms are pretty small if you are sharing with someone, wifi is not the best. Parking isn't free. Breakfast is included but they could definitely improve it!
Location It is not a hotel, it is a motel! It should have been represented as a 2 star. There was sand coming out of the water fixtures, lavatory and bathtub.

Excelente ubicación. Reservamos una habitación extra grande, pero cuando llegamos nos dieron una habitación doble. Dijeron que no podían garantizar el tipo de habitación cuando se reserva a través de terceros. Sentimos decepción. Recomendamos reservar directamente con el hotel, para poder tener la habitación desada.
El personal era excelente. Muy complaciente. El vestíbulo y el bar están actualizadas. Las habitaciones son muy oscuras. No hay iluminación de techo, sólo lámparas de pie.
The management was excellent- so helpful on finding places and things to do. Great breakfast included, as well as free lattes and treats. Truly made you feel like you were guests at their home. The bed was really excellent- super comfortable king.
Loaded with Santa Fe charm. Cozy and quaint. Loved the location! Parked the car and forgot about it while in Santa Fe. Walked everywhere. Will definitely stay here again! Some people complained about the smallness of the rooms...That's where the cozy comes in and didn't bother us a bit. We ended up staying an extra night.
The location was fantastic! The shops and eateries was walking distance. The staff was wonderful and it was an warm welcome. My room was cool at night. When I went to turn on the heat, it was only blowing out freezing air.
Very comfortable, excellent location within the city, for walking around & not having to drive. Wonderful, welcoming staff, especially Tina & Al. Can't think of anything.
The best thing about Las Palomas is the location, just 4 blocks from the Plaza. However it's also located in a cute little real neighborhood outside the Plaza so it feels more homey. Check in was a bit abrupt but not unfriendly.
Walking distance to the plaza and sights of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The only complaint we had was the wi fi didn't work on my computer and they weren't knowledgeable to fix it, but they did have one in the lounge I could use.
La ubicación, el personal era muy amable y servicial, desayunos con alimentos frescos, ofrecían jerez por la tarde, edificio y vestíbulo bonitos, habitaciones limpias, confortables, con decoración local, y el aire acondicionado no era ruidoso. Para abrir los cajones había que abrir primero las puertas de la habitación y aun así los cajones chocaban.
Me sorprendió por ser un hotel bonito y muy correcto a un precio inmejorable.
habitacion tipo apartahotel con cocina ,microondas ,nevera mesas y sillas utensilios para prepararse comidas .esta muy linpio y el moviliario es de madera de pino,no es muy grande pero no esta mal.el trato del personal muy bien.hay varios supermercados uno de ordenadores y otro un hipermercado de comida y de todo de la la cadena albertson . pero hay supermercados pero es una zona muy bonita y tranquila rodeado de zonas verdes.aparcamiento muy abundante y gratuito lejos del centro de santa fe pero con coche no hay problemas .internet muy lento.desayuno muy basico y no muy bueno.
Precio por habitación razonable, cómodas camas, me gustó tener una cocina pequeña 2 de 3 miembros del personal en la recepción eran muy fríos;. Solicite hablar con el director y el personal había diciendo que no estaba, y resulta que sí. Tuvimos un problema y quería discutirlo con el director, ya que era una cuestión de seguridad y el personal podría importarle menos. Estaban completamente indiferentes y ni siquiera informaron al director sobre el tema, no mostrar ninguna preocupación ni compasión..
Muy buena ubicación. Personal amable. La habitación no estaba limpia. Nos pusieron justo al lado de la cocina, y había mucho ruido alrededor de las 5 de la mañana.
Me encantó todo! Cama cómoda, un gran balcón con vistas, pero privada, buena comida en el restaurante, entorno muy bonito
Very large room. After a couple of days, the breakfast got old.
The gentleman who checked us in was very nice and helpful. We made the reservation an hour and a half before arrival and it ended up being one of their last rooms. I only wish that their had been some more dinner options. We were tired and ordered Jimmy Johns which was ok The room was clean and spacious but a little dark. There were quite a few kids running up and down the halls which we didn't like but they quieted down after a while. The only thing we were a little unhappy with was the complimentary breakfast. It was not good.
Cerritos Blvd is motel row and not the safest area in Santa Fe.
Parking lot lights blazed through the room all night despite full coverage curtains.
My room was clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, and the lighting in the bathroom was very good, which is not always the case in hotels, and thus worth mentioning. The staff were friendly and helpful. My room did not have a microwave. The "business center" only had 2 computers, one of which did not work at all, and the printer did not work. The breakfast was not really worth eating, even at no charge. The "fresh" fruit was especially disappointing.
Won't stay there again. On the third floor, a beep sounded every 2 minutes - sounded like a smoke detector indicator of a low battery. Contacted the front desk the first night, they did nothing. Lasted our entire 3 day 2 night stay. There was little light in the room, not enough to work by. There was no electrical plug by the desk - have to unplug the TV and a light plus borrow an extension cord from the front desk to use my laptop. People were nice, but room wasn't.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the rooms were nice and quiet. The breakfast was also nice.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Modern, clean, comfortable room.
The exterior of the hotel and landscaping are easily the best in town. On-site valet parking is quick and convenient, as parking in old town santa fe is very limited. The location is ideal. It's a quick walk to anywhere in the old town area. The rooms are very average and dark. In my opinion, they are very overpriced, as is the restaurant. I expected better decorating in the rooms, considering the hallways and public areas of the hotel are very nice. One person in our party discovered their bed had been thrown-up in the night before and improperly cleaned. When they pulled down the comforter, they were greeted by the offensive odor and put a towel on the bed and found it was still wet. Their night was comped, but that's about as bad as it can get.
This may be the first time we've spent in a hotel that had really comfortable rooms (the bed and pillows were wonderful). The architecture was very interesting, and gave it an almost exotic feel (from east coasters at least). The location in Santa Fe let you do almost everything within walking distance, and it's a short drive to other great spots to visit like Los Alamos, Taos, and Albuquerque. The staff were always very helpful. Only negative I can think of is their fitness center's a bit of an afterthought, especially when both treadmills were broken at the same time. If you're going to charge everyone a mandatory fee for its use, you should at least keep the equipment working. And while the valet parking staff were awesome, having to pay for valet if you wish to park there is also a little annoying. (I would have anyway, but I can certainly see how someone would not want to.)
This was my first time and it was more than what I expect. Service was excellent. Candy and snacks were too expensive.
The people (hotel employees)! No complaints.
the pool was lovely and the location of the hotel was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were a little on the small side.
Loved the style and amenities. The restaurant, both indoors and outdoors, was very pleasant. Great service and food. Didn't like having to valet our car.
location of resort, general atmosphere and very good service from conceirge and engineering the closet in the bathroom arrangement was not convenient for getting to clothes.
Good location, incredibly comfy beds, if a little small. Very expensive for what you got and very noisy air conditioning!
Excellent location near the Plaza and other Santa Fe sites. Definite feel of Santa Fe within the hotel and the room. Great patio for drinks and dinner. Concierge made dinner reservations and was prompt with confimations.
The staff was really helpful. Lots of nice amenities. Very walkable and nice grounds. I left a scarf behind in the room and housekeeping was not able to find it.
Valet service was good Food was overpriced and the breakfast was lousy Housekeeping service fee? Are you kidding
The location is superb, the ambience was perfect. Clean large rooms, and a lovely view. Mostly, the staff was great and friendly. However, a bad experience in the bar was really disappointing. I wanted to order a light meal (available there) and a glass of wine. I sat alone at my table for at least 15 minutes, while others who were couples were getting waited on and served. They had even come after me! After about 15 minutes, I realized that I wasn't going to be served. So I went up to the bar, where 3 of the bar staff were talking and laughing. Finally, "Luis" took my order of a glass of wine. I commented that I didn't realize thT I had to come up to the bar myself and get a drink. He never responded and gave a slight smirk. I am handicapped and have trouble walking due to 4 fractured vertebrae. I would have appreciated an apology and then have someone come back and check! I slowly drank my wine, and still no service, while others around me (couples) were served. I wanted another glass of wine and a light bite to eat. But obviously that wasn't going to happen unless I chased someone down. So I just left. Regarding Luminare, the restaurant, service was ok. Nothing stellar. At dinner, I wasn't informed of any specials, yet I heard other tables getting the full treatment. I feel that because I am a woman alone, I was sort of treated as a second class citizen. Lorenzo the bellhop was GREAT. So were the front desk staff.
Excellent stay at Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza. Great service, clean and amazing decor. Loved the pillows!
Location is great. Only reason I stayed there was because of the parking area. Had I not had a large vehicle, I wouldve gone else where. In fact I was going to stay across the street at El Dorado but couldnt fit my car. Insidef elt and looked like a casino in Las Vegas.
From the smiling face at the desk, and the attentive staff, this was a memorable stay the entire time. As a place to stay that was convenient to the historic plaza and all of its attractions, this was an excellent choice of places to stay
Great experience from the front desk to the room. Perry was exceptional as our concierge and treated our Mother on her 80th with a split of champagne and strawberries that made her special day. First floor rooms have no cell phone service due to the solid construction of the hotel.
The proximity to shopping and great restaurants was perfect. The ambiance, customer service and room all exceeded our expectations. When we had trouble with the ac, someone was up to fix it within the hour and everyone was so helpful, from the parking attendant to the front desk and concierge. The daily offering of cider and cookies in the lobby was such a nice touch, too!
Wonderful restoration; helpful staff and superb location to main sights in the central part of old Santa Fe. We did choose the least expensive room and was perhaps not surprised that we had a small room with not such a nice view but it was very nicely appointed and comfortable.
Walk to Plaza and all the shops and restaurants....
Loved the location. Staff was amazing. Romantic room... Hotel design is so well done. Loved the whole experience!
All of the staff are very pleasant in this boutique hotel in the heart of Santa Fe. The public areas are nicely appointed. It is a historic hotel so the rooms are small with limited counter space.
The location is terrific, the rooms are a little small but nicely appointed, the beds are comfy, lobby is nice, it's a historic property with a great bar! There was no coffee maker in the guest room and no morning coffee in the lobby, and no one at the restaurant desk so we had to go out. Not a big deal but a little inconvenient since it was snowing!
Location, service, historical feature, comfort. Not enough space in room to spread out but ample for the price.
The rooms were clean and cozy. Since I'm from a tropical place and staying in Santa Fe during November I was fearful of the cold nights, but the heater worked great and I could open the windows for fresh air. The decor is modern with nostalgic and rustic sentiment. I did not have a car, so I appreciated the convenience of the hotels location as it was steps away from the plaza and great eateries.
the possibility of having a shuttle to the plaza anytime was great !
we were upgraded to a suite and were comped breakfast and a drunk
Shopped and visited art galleries. Our room was small and not having a tub was a surprise.
the food ,' the ambiance', the silence, the people.
Ours was a luxurious stay at a reasonable price. The rooms at the Hacienda are very nicely appointed and spacious. Staying nearer the Plaza would be better but the decent location combined with free parking and shuttle is still very good. The private entry and helpful staff help make this a safe and enjoyable place that we would come back to.
Food! Getting the new york times, Location, "vibe." Included parking, gym, breakfast unlike many other sf hotels. Personal butler
