History, tradition and art in one excellent hotel.
When registration opened he Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Western Chapter meeting in Santa Fe, my first choice of the three fine downtown hotels was La Fonda. This historic hotel is awash with Southwestern history, a place of legend, a repository of art and a very fine place to stay — to say nothing of dining and indulging in fabled margaritas. Here are a few images:
We didn’t use the pool or the spa, but we were grateful for an attached parking garage, given the middle-of-town location.
La Fonda is at 100 East San Francisco Street, Santa Fe, NM 87501;
800-523-5002 or 505-982-5511.
