We stayed here two years ago while visiting the Grand Canyon, and a couple of weeks ago were delighted to find that it was at exactly the right spot for an overnight on our high-speed marathon from Maine to Palm Springs. It's just off I-40, but high enough on the hillside that there's absolutely no highway noise. The entrance drive is imposing enough for a high-end resort, and the facilities live up to that expectation. The lobby, adjoining lounge and dining room are all elegant, and the front desk attendant was welcoming and helpful. Our room, a king double, was spacious, immaculate and beautifully furnished.
After a quick clean-up, we headed for the dining room, where we found an appealing menu and a short but intelligent wine list. One of us had the French onion soup and a spinach, dried cranberry and walnut salad, and the the other the house salad and the grilled mountain trout - all outstanding. We also much enjoyed the local singer-guitarist, who played traditional standards and took requests.
After that, we enjoyed some time by ourselves in the romantic outdoor hot tub before heading back to our room for our first non-passenger-seat sleep in over 2000 miles!More
