This hotel says...

Rated as one of the top 5 historic hotels in Arizona- La Posada was built in 1930 and was the last and most elegant of the Fred Harvey Hotels built by the Santa Fe Railroad. It was designed by Mary Colter- perhaps the greatest architect of the Southwest- as a fabulous Spanish hacienda. In its heyday La Posada was a favorite retreat for Hollywood stars. Everybody stayed here from Howard Hughes to John Wayne- Bob Hope to Dorthy Lamour- Albert Einstein to the Crown Prince of Japan. In the 1930s La Posada was the finest small hotel in the southwest- a romantic Spanish castle with 70 guest rooms- three dining rooms and grand public spaces. With the decline in rail travel- La Posada closed in 1957. Over the next 40 years the hotel narrowly escaped demolition. In 1997 a massive restoration project was begun- and today guests can again roam the original flagstone floors- play a game of chess next to a roaring fire in the ballroom- stroll past the petrified wood fountain in the secluded Mediterainian sunken garden- have a drink at the horseshoe bar in the Martini Lounge and a four star meal in the newly renovated Turquoise Room Restaurant- and spend a night in one of La Posada 37 fully restored guest rooms- many of which offer balcony views of our lawns and groves- some with whirlpool tubs and private fireplaces. Come to La Posada and step back in time. Stroll over 8 acres of lawns- groves and gardens. Watch the clouds through the cottonwoods. Relax with a good book from our library. For adventure we will direct you to wonderful day trips- just as Fred Harvey planned years ago- to all the marvels of the region. See the Grand Canyon- the red rocks of Sedona- Monument Valley- the Hopi Mesas- Meteor Crater- the Petrified Forest and prehistoric ruins at Wupatki and Walnut Canyon. There is so much to explore in Northern Arizona- and there is no better base than La Posada. Come spend a few memorable days with us in high style along historic U. S- Route 66.
