Read the reviews and had to see it myself. Vacationing in Arizona included the painted desert and the petrified forest in Holbrook after leaving Sedona. At the end of the day we stayed at this hotel on the way to the Grand Canyon. What a jewel. If you want the feel of the southwest and all its history, this is the place. The hotel is almost completely restored and is just so much fun to walk around in and explore. All the rooms are named after some famous person who stayed there during the heydays of the 30's,40's, and 50's. So cool. We stayed in the Will Rogers room. Located on the Santa Fa line there are trains rolling by all the time which is so neat to watch from the front lawn of the hotel. I didn't notice any train noise from our room at night. Slept geat with the window open all night, only heard the fountain in the courtyard. Big gift shop with lots of local items to pick from. You have to eat in the Turquoise Room restaurant. We ate both dinner and breakfast there. It has to have the best food in Arizona. Make sure you try there signature soup at dinner and there warm cinnamon buns and the breaksfast potatos in the morning.

After reading a southwest guidebook, we thought we would give the hotel a try, and it was great. We were given a smaller room at first with double beds but after going back to the front desk, we received a king for the same price around $110. It faced the tracks and remarkably, the passing trains never bothered us during the night. The room had lovely mexican tile for the floor, a bookcase full of books on the southwest and other titles, a desk, wooden settee, nightstands, ceiling fan, etc. The bathroom was on the larger side with a jacuzzi tub, and clean beautiful white tile. We ate at the restaurant, it's a little pricey with entrees at $16-35 but we both had a great meal for total of around $60. I mean, you have to try elk and wild boar at least once on a southwest vacation, right?

Stayed here one night in route across the state, and while Winslow was a little rough around the edges - staying at the hotel was a lot of fun. It was great to sit on the front porch and watch the trains go bye. The restaurant is very reasonable and very good. I'd consider taking the train out from LA just to stay a couple of nights and then take the train back. Give it a try if you can fit it into your schedule.

We flew into Phoenix and stayed one night at La Posada on our way to Canyon de Chelly. It was a beautiful, relaxing experience. We were lucky enough to book the " Howard Hughes" room and it was just delightful with beautiful old wood flooring, and a huge 4-poster bed. The grounds here are beautiful and my husband enjoyed sitting out by the train tracks and watching the many trains switch tracks behind the hotel. NO the trains don't bother you at night but come through slowly and the sound is very pleasant. I had a wonderful time browsing the many rooms of La Posada ground floor - restored ballroom, etc. with much memorabilia of old times preserved. It's easy to imagine the grandeur of days past, and La Posada full of merry times entertaining the visitors traveling by train.

We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant, The Turquoise Room. The food was very good but we did not find it to be as outstanding as otherwise noted - we have better food for less $$$ in several restaurants at home.

Winslow itself is almost a ghost town - the diner across the street and most stores are closed and the "standing on the corner" mural is unfortunately on a building which recently had a very bad fire. Don't bother looking for anything exciting to commemorate the Eagles' famous song. There is hoewever, an exceptional small park in town with a gorgeous carved "totem" made of one piece of huge pine. It also has some vintage railroad cars on a side track. Other than that, there's nothing in Winslow except the jail, La Posada and unfortunately a new Super WalMart. Sigh . . . .

From the moment we walked in, we knew this place was special. La Posada opened in 1930 as a Fred Harvey hotel for the Santa Fe Railroad and it operated until the late 1950's. After that the Santa Fe used the place for offices and practically destroyed the interior. The restoration that has occurred is nothing short of amazing and it's all documented in an hour and a half DVD that plays in the lobby. The architectural detail kept us wandering the halls for several hours after dinner.

The rooms were very nicely furnished and very "homey". Our room was about as far as you could get from the RR tracks and we didn't hear a thing during the night. Decorated in a southwest motif, everything was top-notch. Bedding and towels were high quality and very soft. Absolutely no complaints about the quality of anything in our room.

The food at the Turquiose Room was outstanding. Prices are a little steep but it's worth the spluge. It was easily the best food of our vacation. A very nice menu of traditional favorites and local specialties. We ate both dinner and breakfast there.

Winslow itself seems fairly rundown but hopefully the presence of La Posada helps change that. Amazing place with amazing history. If you stay here, be sure to immerse yourself in the history and story of its rebirth. You won't be disappointed.
