A beutiful gem that rivals any hotel I've seen! A review of La Posada Hotel
One night a few years ago, I was exploring the old main street of Winslow Arizona when I encountered the La Posada hotel. Winslow, once a boom town had fallen on hard times. The La Posada was a beautifully designed and executed hotel created for the railway by Mary Colter in 1930. It was rescued by a group of artists and restored to it's original grandeur, quite literally, no other hotel of its type comes close to the attention to detail, history, architecture, or interiors. The owners have their art work on display, a nice warm fire in the winter and many many books to peruse. The rooms have been authentically returned to their original design of coarse mexican furniture combined with fine arts and crafts. The original Harvey House diner has been restored with fine dining choices. The gorunds are spacious and front a very active rail line. The buiding is old but well built the rooms large enough for two. Some of the rooms have balconies and fireplaces (ask about the Howard Hughes room). Certainly worth a visit and if possible a stay. The owners are very friendly and can offer immense details of the hotel, and railway history. five stars!
