We stayed at the La Posada for one night, and we wished our stay could have been longer. This was a railroad hotel, and of course, the trains go by all night long. In fact, that's one of the reasons we stayed here. I kept the balcony door open all night long so I could listen to them, while my husband slept like a brick. The restoration of this hotel is so loving that it is a privilege to stay there. The art isn't creepy -- watch the artist's video and you can figure out what she's doing. We found it almost whimsical. Our room was the Mary Colter room, with furnishings true to what Mary Colter would had when she designed the hotel. There is a beautiful garden for sitting and, if you like to sit and watch the trains, there are rocking chairs provided near the tracks. The Turquoise Room's food was wonderful. We first ate there last year and weren't disappointed this time. The service was elegant and charming. We had a very nice young man as our server in the evening and a lovely young Harvey Girl was our server at breakfast. Check out the hotel's web site for the menu.
