“We will definitely return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Upon arrival, we were a little concerned about some areas of the grounds that were 'under construction' but those concerns quickly diminished as we were treated to a very pleasant experience at La Posada. We arrived a few hours before the formal check-in time but were told to enjoy the hotel and grounds and return in an hour. We did to find a lovely room waiting for us as promised. Not sure where to start in describing La Posada but, between the room and the hotel and the grounds, we had an incredible stay and actually relaxed! One might be concerned about a hotel that pretty much sits by the railroad tracks but we didn't hear a thing during the night (and I'm a light sleeper!). There are a large number of outdoor lounge areas but our favorite was actually the one facing the railroad tracks.....it was actually quite soothing to train-watch! The customer service from every staff member was impeccable. And they love the doggies as well. We will certainly return and will stay longer the next time!

What a place, the rooms are excellent, each one unique in many ways, the antiques throughout the hotel are just fantastic, and the modern art in the galleries just outstanding!

The owners have done a splendid job of restoring this old landmark hotel, the gardens are unique and the restaurant whilst pricey is also at a level you would never expect in a small town like Winslow.

Being an old railroad hotel does mean however that there will be trains passing through during the night, but we had no trouble sleeping as our room was downstairs and probably the furthest from the tracks, our friend room was closer and they were disturbed by the trains.

We thought that the unique experience of staying here was throughly worthwhile and that the room rate represented good value for money

Room Tip: As far away from the railroad lines as possible

La Posada is a masterpiece. This grand hotel from the glory days of the Santa Fe railroad is also the crowning achievement of Mary Colter who is known as the architect of the Southwest. After years of neglect the hotel has been restored complete with period furniture, art, and gardens. You will be very comfortable here and you have a great opportunity to learn something about the importance of the railroads and the Harvey Hotels and Harvey Girls to the development of the American Southwest. It is all good including the bar and restaurant which is run as a separate enterprise. For all you Eagles fans from the 1970s in a two block walk from your hotel you too can be 'Standin' on the Corner in Winslow Arizona.'

What a find! This is one of the old Railroad Hotels built at a railroad station. Lot's of history and art in the many spacious rooms where you can sit and relax if it is too hot to sit in one of their many gardens. The staff is very accommodating. They also have an excellent restaurant (See ratings for The Tourquoise Room). The room prices are very are very reasonable for a hotel of this quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the railroad tracks.

Love, love, love this hotel. I was here in 1997 when they were renovating and it was nice but I was pleasantly surprised to see how accurately the finished product is. The lobby, gift shop, sitting rooms and stairwells are so colorful and inviting. There are many original black/white photos around to see how the hotel looked in its heyday as a Harvey House for the Santa Fe Railroad. My niece and I stayed in the "Roddy MeDowell Room" that had two double beds. Bedspreads had raised Indian designs that we found unique. We slept well on soft sheets and fluffy pillows. If I can find one fault it was the high mirror in the bathroom; we were too short to see ourselves which might have been a good thing :-) The grounds are beautiful and there were many little doorways that made for phots ops. We loved sitting out by the tracks at twilight as the Amtrac stopped for awhile. We waved to people on board and talked to fellow hotel guests. Just a marvelous experience.

Room Tip: There isn't an elevator so be prepared to pay more for a bottom-floor room or be able to walk to...

She built this hotel as one of the last of her grand hotels. The current owner is renovating it to it's past glory which has to cost a pretty penny. It was beautiful, with quiet gardens and the BNSF (ex Santa Fe) Railroad running right by the west side. Amtrak makes a stop here and I got to watch as it stopped, loaded and unloaded passengers. A grand hotel.

This is a unique hotel. One of a kind. We stayed in the Lauren Hutton suite and it was the size of a small apartment. There are plenty of gardens for walking. The paintings in the hotel are mostly done by the owner, Tina Mion. Very interesting works. The people who work there will be glad to help you in any way possible. Very convenient. The history behind the hotel is very interesting. If I am ever in that area again I will surely stay there. So relaxing.

Room Tip: I would stay in the Lauren Hutton suite again. There was no noise anywhere in the hotel.
