Spent one night in Winslow just so we could stay at the La Posada. We booked the cheapest room option - a small, but very comfortable and beautiful room on the second floor. The front desk staff were friendly, but don't expect resort-type customer service. This is much more informal. We happened to be in Winslow during a freak storm in May, so we were pretty much "stuck" in the hotel - which was fine by us. We had fun exploring all of its nooks and crannies, and enjoying the fine food in the Turqoise Room. Definitely worth a visit.

I wouldn't ordinarily advise that anyone even stop at Winslow, but our two-night stay at La Posada was one of the finest that I can recall.

I'm a railfan, so I reserved a room on the second floor, facing the tracks. As this is a very busy BNSF mainline joining Chicago and LA, others may opt for a quieter room.

This is one of the few surviving Harvey House hotels, and one of the last to be built, in 1930.

One caveat: there is no elevator to the second floor. Next time we will pack more judiciously, leaving all but one suitcase and the camera equipment and laptop in the vehicle. There are rooms on the ground floor, facing the garden, in the west wing.

The Turquoise Room, the original Harvey House restaurant, had excellent food and decor. Both nights at dinner, we enjoyed seeing the Amtrak Southwest Chief pull into the adjacent depot on its way to LA. At breakfast on the day of departure, there were even a couple of servers dressed in the traditional dresses that Harvey Girls wore as their uniform.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

What a gem! The loveliest hotel and best restaurant for hundreds of miles around, it can and should be considered a destination in the 4 Corners region. In April 2008, we had a lovely room (deluxe) that was full of charm and comforts just like the rest of the hotel. It is rare to find a place that exceeds your expectations. But this was definitely one of those times. The owners have done a beautiful job restoring/renovating this wonderful historic building and we wish them every success for the future.

I stayed at La Posada for three nights in early April 2008. It's a delightful 1930s railway hotel which is being 'done up' by the current owners. Do not let that give you the idea its a building site, it isn't. All the public areas are beautifully decorated with original artworks adorning many walls (the artist is also one of owners). The guide book (free if you stay) takes you on a self guided tour of the building which is worth doing to give you the full history and ensures you see it all. The rooms are smallish (or at least mine was), but it was very comfortable. clean and a nice change from the uniform chain hotels that we are all so used to these days. The decor is supposed to be period (30s in this case), but even if it isn't quite 30,s it really didn't matter, it was cosy. The bathroom was also in the 30s style with black and white tiles, large bath (tub) and shower. Its difficult to convey just how comfortable, relaxing and unique this hotel is.

The restaurant, The Turquoise Room, run by an expat Englishman (John) is as good a restaurant as I've had the pleasure to eat in in the US. Rough Guide says best for 100 miles - I'd say thats under selling it by some margin. Different menu to what you might expect in a desert /railway town like Winslow - although steaks are available - and European portion control so you really can eat three courses if you wish. If you stay at the hotel, its a must. If you are just passing, its still a must!

The Rough Guide lists this hotel as one of the top 13 things to do in Soutwestern US - they are not wrong. Its great!

My partner and I booked on whim during a road trip from L.A to Santa Fe and were delighted with La Posada. The staff were friendly and helpful (though one waiter was a little too chatty) and the rooms were quite unique.

We had such a great experience that we booked again on our return. We had a different room and it was equally unique and individually restored. Both our rooms had jacuzzi styled baths and all mod cons ... And again, lovely staff...

The only thing that let's La Posada down is what's around it - no real hang out zones either in the hotel or in the town, it needs a cozy coffee shop or something, something that makes you want to hang out - still hanging on a bit to its days of being an office (but not over-riding) and it wasn't the right time of year to hang out in the garden - maybe next time ... but we thoroughly enjoyed this hotel - a taste of indulgence and personality and care on a dusty road trip ...

Great place to stop off of you want to check out the PEtrified Forest or the Crater!
