“It's how you recover....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed at La Posada one night and went to the bar and restaurant for dinner. Winslow itself is not much to look at, but the hotel was a trip back in history - great artwork, beautiful. The guest room was away from the tracks (couldn't hear the nearby trains at all) and was large and well maintained. While we wouldn't make another trip to Winslow to stay there we would recommend it for a first time visitor.

The restaurant and bar were crowded. The hotel was understaffed (particularly bar staff and kitchen staff). We waited a long time after ordering and when the food ultimately arrived the food was overcooked. Credit to the wait staff and management, they recognized the problem, apologized, and immediately removed the cost of the dinner from our bill.

We travel a lot. Hotels and restaurants occasionally have a bad day or night. The La Posada hotel was good, but the restaurant and bar had a bad night. When there is a bad night it's
all about how you recover with the customer and fix the core problem. La Posada recovered well with us -- time will tell whether they can solve the staffing issue.

Spent New Years Eve here on a trip to experience some of Route 66 in between visiting some of the National parks in the Southwest. The hotel was little out of our way, but I'm so glad we stayed here. It has an amazing history and to see what one couple could do to salvage a little piece of history is impressive. The grounds were decorated with holiday lights on the outside and inside, making an already beautiful setting a little more cozy. There is so much to see throughout the hotel. They provided a guide upon check-in to help you tour the facility, which I recommend taking the time to do.

Overall, the hotel is clean and comfortable. It has everything you would need during your stay. The hotel was built to support train travel and the tracks behind the hotel are still in operation. Every so often, you will hear a train rumble through. I actually did not find this to be disruptive at all and didn't feel anything vibrations.

We ate in the hotel restaurant for breakfast and it was delicious. Everyone ordered something different and enjoyed their choices. The gift shop in the hotel is also worth visiting. It has unique items from local artists and are really fairly priced.

The corner in Winslow is a couple of blocks from the hotel- within walking distance. Honestly, I think the hotel is the most interesting thing to see in this town.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel and hope to be back some day when I'm back in the area.

Spend some time looking through the hotel and gardens. Our room had a beautiful wood floor with Indian rugs. It can be a little difficult to transport you luggage (if you bring everything with you like I do) because you have to get a cart at the entrance, push it over an uneven pavement to your car in the parking lot, and try to negotiate the double doors at the entrance. Also, to save money we stayed on the second floor and there are no elevators so it took several trips to get the luggage to the room. Even with these obstacles, I still recommend the hotel if you want to stay in this area. It seem to be economically depressed right now but is a good place to stay if you want to see the painted desert.

Room Tip: You pay extra to stay on the first floor but no elevators make the first floor more convenient.

Have gotten into the habit of breaking up a drive to Las Vegas with an overnight at La Posada and once again, it was SUCH a pleasure.

Quiet rooms. Simple but lush atmosphere. Ambiance with comfort. It is a "jewel"!

And who ever knew that train watching could be so much fun - of course, a glass of wine from their superb cellars doesn't hurt!

Very beautiful hotel, so old and historic. The common areas are filled with art, furnishings and lots of lovely designs. Our room was quite large and just the right amount of "quirkiness" to it. We were fortunate to be in the older section of the hotel, and a corner room. The hotel supplies "ear plugs" because some people in the past must have complained about the train that runs near by. Truly, we never heard the train when we were in bed and we were near the tracks. The staff is very nice, too!!

A Jewel

We found La Posada on a trip to Winslow, Arizona. There is little to this town if you are not a fan of the Eagles song “Take it Easy”. That is until we came across the entrance of La Posada Hotel. Walking through the sculptured gardens (filled with sculptures and flowering plants) we are welcomed by Jolly the camel sculpture standing outside the front gate.

The La Posada is a historically restored hotel from an era we all would love to have experienced. It is updated with modern conveniences for the comfort of their guests. The walls of the vast rooms are covered with artwork, many by Tina Mion who, along with her husband and two Parti Poodles own and reside in the Hotel. The rooms are filled with artwork and antiques. Huge reading rooms overlooking the gardens invite guests for lounging and reading. There really is no reason to leave the hotel grounds.

Tina Mion is a world-class artist. We bought one of her prints and since she was home that day we actually got to meet her and have her sign the print.

The hotel also has one of the finest restaurants you will ever dine in, The Turquoise Room.

This is a National treasure and should make it to your destination list. We have stayed here 3 times and will go out of our way to stay a night or two.

Room Tip: Many famous people have stayed at this hotel. Pick a room named after you favorite celebrity or hist...

Very easy to find and very friendly staff. The best part is the charm and feel of this place. All is old Mexican architecture and style. Vivid colors and paintings. Room furnishings are rustic but very comfy and very attractive. Also very clean. The building has a very interesting history. Incredible value. One of the most unique and wonderful stops for us in the USA.
