Business briefs: Wilson Lass lands ‘legendary’ account

BRECKENRIDGE ” Breckenridge-based creative marketing firm Wilson Lass recently was chosen as the agency of record for La Fonda, the “grande dame” of Santa Fe hotels. The property considered proposals from 16 national agencies, and Wilson Lass emerged as the top pick. The Wilson Lass team will help La Fonda re-launch their historic brand as part of a comprehensive renovation beginning with the restoration of La Plazuela, the hotel’s trademark restaurant.

La Fonda is Santa Fe’s oldest hotel; the current building that is La Fonda was constructed in 1922, however official records show that an inn, or la fonda, existed on the same site when Santa Fe was founded in 1610. Property ownership has changed over the years, but La Fonda has been locally owned and operated since 1968.

Wilson Lass will help La Fonda create a more cohesive brand as the property completes a series of renovations designed to restore much of the building’s unique history and architecture. The finer points of the remodel will focus on the original design created by Mary Coulter, and many of the details unique to La Fonda’s decor will be restored. With the historic nature of the renovations, the property also looks forward to regaining its position as “the” place to stay in Santa Fe.

“Just as the technology of paint has improved, the customization of paint accessories has also improved,” Kruse said. “Using the right brush or roller for a specific application will help the homeowner and paint contractor achieve the best result.:
