RPSD Conference Hotel—La Fonda

We will meet at the historic La Fonda Hotel in 400-year-old Santa Fe, America’s most unusual state capital. The city’s unique mix of Pueblo Indian, Hispanic, and European traditions provides visitors with an amazing choice of cultural and recreational activities. Fascinating museums, world-class shopping, art tours, varied performances in theater, dance, and music, gourmet dining, and myriad outdoor activities in one of the world’s most beautiful settings—all these await you in “The City Different.” Here you will experience firsthand the true ambiance of America’s Southwest. In April—or any season—Santa Fe’s people, arts, endless charms, and legendary hospitality promise to make your stay memorable.

La Fonda IS Santa Fe—the historic hotel on the southeast corner of the Plaza is surrounded by museums, shops, galleries and close to all of the area's attractions. Known for its award-winning Spanish pueblo style architecture, La Fonda is a vibrant landmark filled with unique paintings and colorful, hand-painted and hand-carved wooden furniture, beams, corbels and much more. Guests are delighted by their 167 uniquely decorated guest rooms and suites and by the delicious creations of their award-winning chefs. You will also find a multilingual concierge, a news stand, as well as a variety of excellent shops in their lobby.

The La Fonda Hotel will make every attempt to accommodate conference attendees at the La Fonda or a neighboring hotel at the special reduced conference rate. The conference rate, which does not include an 11.4375% hotel tax, meets the U.S. government hotel guidelines for Santa Fe. The deadline for hotel registration at the special rate is March 14, 2002. You may register through the hotel's web site at making sure to use the conference code of "RPSD 2002 Topical Meeting" in the "any special requests or remarks" box or you can fill out the PDF form and fax it to the hotel.

There is a daily fee for parking at the La Fonda Hotel, and we recommend using a shuttle service from the Albuquerque airport to the hotel instead of a rental car.
Shuttle information is available from the Conference's transportation web page.
