The historic district is the core of tourism in Flagstaff Arizona. Our impression as we walked the streets was that it is more of a night life destination then a daytime area. Bars and college students are in abundance. Nice shops and a few restaurants were sprinkled amongst the funky and deferred maintenance. The local curator at the visit-worthy Pioneer Museum out of town mentioned that we should visit the historic Weatherford Hotel. So we headed to the hotel and walked into the lobby. Like many historic venues the Weatherford has suffered from deserved upkeep, but the staff was friendly, the bar lively and the restaurant populated. What we found to be the best of the Weatherford was the upper balcony where we enjoyed quiet views up and down the old western streets. Here you can feel the old west. Be sure to study the old pictures and paintings throughout the stairwells, floors and in the restaurant. These are the gold you'll find at The Weatherford.
