Reviewed 20 February 2012

My wife and I very much enjoyed a night at the La Posada en route home. We stayed in the Lauren Hutton Room (No. 242). It was very comfortable, with a spa tub and view of the front of the hotel. The hotel is the last of the Fred Harvey/Santa Fe Railroad hotels, completely designed by Mary Colter, and opened in 1929. After many years of being used as office space and general neglect, the hotel has been undergoing a renovation by a private individual for many years. It is still a work in progress, but the owners are to be congratulated on their work to date and obvious love they have for the project. If you enjoy history, you'll enjoy staying at this hotel. The hotel puts a lot of effort into making the history of the La Posada and the Harvey House available and enjoyable. The hotel has an outstanding restaurant, the Turquoise Room, which is highly recommended. Be advised, however, there is little to see and do in Winslow, although the town has a very nice local museum that is well worth seeing. The other attractions in the area are outdoor, such as the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest National Park, Grand Canyon (a bit of a drive), or the Meteor Crater. Otherwise, plan on quiet and solitude to read, wander the grounds, or watch the numerous trains that pass close by the rear (formerly the front) of the hotel. Amtrac also stops twice daily, one East bound and one West bound train. We enjoyed our stay very much, and will return as soon as possible, but in the Spring when the grounds should come alive.

Room Tip: Rooms facing South look over the very busy railroad tracks, but this is not a distraction and not no...

Whether you're looking for outstanding food, or lodging, La Posada is an excellent choice. My wife and I stayed there for a romantic getaway, and the fine accommodations, service, gift shop, and extraordinarily unusual art work exceeded all our expectations. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the trains too (there was no train noise in our room because of the thick adobe walls). Although ours was a getaway, La Posada is perfectly situated, and competitively priced for travelers too, just a couple of minutes off of Interstate 40. We plan to come again.

This is a must stop for me in my annual drive out west and though its charm comes with some rust, that accommodation is the cornerstone of travel. Not everyone will agree with the art work (I liked it) not everyone with the fact that the rooms are restored and not blasted away and replaced with chinese made furniture. It is authentic. It is well run (mostly) and it is preservation of something very important, and almost long gone in travel. The association with James Turrell (artist, see Roden Crater) is another step in the vision of those who would resurrect the dying town of Winslow with art, including art in accommodation and food (the restaurant is fantastic).

Room Tip: Book the standard room. The upgrade to the jacuzzi rooms wasn't worth it.

My husband and I stopped for lunch on our way to Phx in the fall. It was the most amazing lunch we could imagine. The fish tacos and soup were delish. We shortened our Phx visit to spend the night in Winslow. We are so glad that we did. The Turquoise Room for dinner and breakfast were just as good as we hoped. Everything on the menu was so good. We are coming back with some friends soon. Don't miss this oasis!

Room Tip: Our room was in the new side and was very clean and modern. We did not hear the trains but we wouldn...
