I'd been to Flagstaff in 2011 and not made a reservation ahead of time, but this time I did at the Monte Vista.Why? It has a ginormous neon sign on the roof, I'm rather partial to that! Flagstaff has a nice vibe - the light is incredible, there are some excellent restaurants and coffee shops, attractive young people - thanks to Northern Arizona University - and the railroad runs through the middle of town. The Monte Vista is an excellent base - a classic American small town hotel dating from early in the last century. The room - 'Michael J Fox' on the door - was comfortable, the bar downstairs had a great glass of pinot noir, and the front desk team were excellent. No breakfast, so head out to 'Macy's' the other side of the railroad - I had dinner both nights at Criolla just a block from the Monte Vista, and fresh juice from the 'Juice Box' on a parking lot down the street. Downtown Flagstaff early in the morning resembles a Wim Wenders movie, and the Monte Vista fits perfectly. I drove down to Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon - possibly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been - the canyon, not Sedona!!
