Learn About Our Taos Hotel
The historic La Fonda de Taos, nestled on the west side of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, dates back to the time when Spanish settlers first arrived here 400 years ago. In 1820 the first “La Fonda” (Spanish for “the Inn”) was opened in the form of a mercantile store that also rented rooms; this same location is where you can find our hotel today.
With over a century of colorful history, we are the only hotel on Taos Plaza and now offer the most elegant Taos vacation options in town. All that the historic district has is right outside our accommodations: dining, shopping, galleries, museums, theater and a multitude of historic sites and attractions.
Our building was recently renovated with a concern for architectural integrity while focusing on the 21st century traveler’s standards of comfort. Rooms here provide the best in deluxe accommodations with luxury linens, hand-tiled bathrooms, in-room Internet access and cozy fireplaces in many rooms. Hotel parking is available to all guests for $6 per day and can accommodate tour buses!
