Well, if you want to pay top dollar to stay in the best hotel in Santa Fe, book somewhere else. What a disappointment. I'm very familiar with the La Fonda, having advertised my art, in one of their display windows. Not a newbie. Here are my impressions. First of all Covid has taken the laughter and spirit away from the employees. The place was like a morgue, energetically. Dark, cold, uninviting, and yes it went down to 53 the nights we were there. No fireplaces burning in the lobby, NO MUSIC IN THE LOBBY SITTING AREA? Employees with sour faces. Bar non-existent, restaurant gone. Lounge gone. NO live music either. Did COVID DISALLOW MUSIC ALSO? We tried to have a drink at the Bell Tower and we were questioned rudely, as to our names and phone number?? Restaurant of other side of the roof, served guacamole and chips, with a big chunk of uncut, unmashed avocado in it. A saucer full of chunks for $15.00 All in all very mediocre and uninviting. They put us in a room overlooking the street, on the first floor. People outside of our window talking and cars going by. We had driven from early morning and wanted an afternoon nap. All in all, a disappointment. Pool closed, hot tub closed, just on and on. Diana Valencia
