Reasons for trip


We made a detour on our recent touring holiday in Arizona specifically to stay at La Posada as we had read so many excellent reviews and we were so pleased we did. We loved it and found it an amazing place like a museum filled with antiques and paintings. The spacious public rooms are crammed full of art, history and beautiful things. It has been lovingly restored and very historic. Just fantastic. The bedrooms are all different and named after public figures. Our room was upstairs and was named after Mary Jane Colter who was the architect for the hotel. It was one of the only rooms that had a balcony and what a long balcony too, situated on the side of the hotel and overlooking the gardens. There are no words to describe adequately the hotel as it is just so different to anywhere else we have stayed with big comfortable settees, tables covered with jigsaws, chess, bookcases filled with books everywhere, even a piano to play. A surprise around every corner! There was a gorgeous courtyard garden in the centre and lots of areas to sit and take in the amazing surroundings. It is situated on the old Sante Fe railroad and we sat in the rocking chairs watching the trains. Fascinating. We didn't hear any noise at all on the side of the hotel although presumably those facing the railroad may find it noisy. To top it all this hotel has an amazing, award winning restaurant, The Turquoise Room, which is very highly regarded and rightly so! Winslow itself is well placed for visiting the fantastic scenic places all around but within the town itself the most popular thing to do is to "take it easy" "standing on the corner of Winslow Arizona!" Eagles' fans will know what that means but in reality it is just a bronze statue of a man with a guitar and a red flatbed truck. Great fun to take photos though! Our only regret was that our stay was too short at La Posada but we are already working out how we can return for longer! Highly recommended.
