I stayed at La Posada for three nights in early April 2008. It's a delightful 1930s railway hotel which is being 'done up' by the current owners. Do not let that give you the idea its a building site, it isn't. All the public areas are beautifully decorated with original artworks adorning many walls (the artist is also one of owners). The guide book (free if you stay) takes you on a self guided tour of the building which is worth doing to give you the full history and ensures you see it all. The rooms are smallish (or at least mine was), but it was very comfortable. clean and a nice change from the uniform chain hotels that we are all so used to these days. The decor is supposed to be period (30s in this case), but even if it isn't quite 30,s it really didn't matter, it was cosy. The bathroom was also in the 30s style with black and white tiles, large bath (tub) and shower. Its difficult to convey just how comfortable, relaxing and unique this hotel is.
The restaurant, The Turquoise Room, run by an expat Englishman (John) is as good a restaurant as I've had the pleasure to eat in in the US. Rough Guide says best for 100 miles - I'd say thats under selling it by some margin. Different menu to what you might expect in a desert /railway town like Winslow - although steaks are available - and European portion control so you really can eat three courses if you wish. If you stay at the hotel, its a must. If you are just passing, its still a must!
The Rough Guide lists this hotel as one of the top 13 things to do in Soutwestern US - they are not wrong. Its great!
