“Charming hotel in middle of (almost) nowhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

I can see why La Posada is seen as a destination. It is a very charming, livable hotel which has employees who really care about the place. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was nice. AC worked fine. There are nice grounds to wander and several sitting areas both in/out where guests are welcome to relax. The gift shop is fantastic. Prices in the dining room (I thought) were pretty high. We ate breakfast here and it cost as much as many of our dinners on our total vacation. It would be very expensive for a family with kids to eat here, though for a couple not "worried" about making their money last, it would be fine.
There is almost nothing to do in Winslow. After you take the requisite photo 'standing on the corner' and visit the couple of gift shops, you're done. Fast food are really the main choices for eating (Denny's, Sonic....) outside of La Posada).

We were on our way home to Santa Fe from the 5-star Grand Del Mar in San Diego and decided to spend the night at La Posada. I had heard about La Posada for many years but had not the opportunity to stay. I want to tell you that this was the most relaxing night of our vacation. The rooms were clean, efficient and comfortable. The service great and the Turquoise Room restaurant impeccable, not to mention that it is a pet friendly hotel. I wish I had taken an entire week at La Posada, it was just so laid back and relaxing. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Be sure to leave the next few days open because you will want to stay longer.

The hotel was a highlight of our recent vacation. It is well worth going out of your way to stay instead of the business hotel chains in Flagstaff or the budget hotel chains in Holbrook.

It has a B&B vibe with great pride of place. Its historic architecture is lovingly preserved. Rooms are on the larger side, decorated in Southwest themes.

The restaurant is well suited as a special occasion place for the area , but also welcoming and comfortable for travelers. It offers interesting and creative Southwest style dishes as well as solid American items for breakfast and dinner.

Winslow, and the hotel’s trackside neighborhood, aren’t posh, but don’t let it be a negative, the hotel’s grounds are an oasis within Winslow, and the surrounding desert.

Amtrak's Southwest Chief stops here to pick up / drop off passengers. How cool is that for a railfan?

This was a wonderful respite after the crazy of Las Vegas. So peaceful to sit in the garden or courtyard and sip a glass of wine in the evening or coffee in the morning. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable. Enjoyed the jetted tub which was pipe free. Had a nice soak after a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Love the history of this hotel so glad it has been restored.

Room Tip: Any room is good but there is no elevator. So if that is an issue call ahead for room selection.

With another couple in a nearby room, my wife and I spent a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable July 4th weekend at La Posada. Winslow doesn't offer much, unless one is an avid Eagles afficianado; however, not too far away one can tour the Painted Desert and Meteor Crater (definitely worth seeing). But the highlight of our trip was time spent in the hotel. We relaxed with beverages in the morning and evening on one of the many patios, watching trains or birds, or simply enjoying the ambiance of the grounds. And we took the time to experience the 'Harvery Girl' tour of the facility, complete with oral history and amusing anecdotes about the hotel's past, it's demise, and its resurgence - Peggy was a wealth of knowledge. Tina Mion's artwork can be viewed throughout the hotel. She presents an interesting and different view of the world. The meals in the Turquoise Room were spectacular, from presentation to service. We will go back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have a view of the hotel's park.

A shop owner in Winslow suggested we check out this Historic Landmark and I want to say it was well worth the time we spent checking it out. Originally built in 1929 by the Santa Fe Railway for the Fred Harvey company, this landmark was closed in 1957. It was later purchased in 1994 and reopened in 1997. This place is awesome and kudos to the owners Allan Affeldt and Tina Mion for transforming and restoring to it's now awesome and interesting landmark that it has become. Well worth the 45 to 60 minute time block that it takes to explore. Highly recommend visiting it!!!

Iconic hotel! Everything and more that we had read about in the UK. We stayed in the Gene Autry room - absolute luxury - so much more than a hotel. Ate in the Turquoise Room - excellent food and really friendly, helpful staff. Would totally recommend.
