We decided if we are going to Winslow, we hafta stay here seeing how its a landmark! We were greeted with a very warm welcome at check in. Our room was everything we hoped it to be. It's old fashion decor and style had just a little modern twist. The room faced one of the gardens, but it was misting rain when we arrived, so we just took in a little TV. I happened to get a glimpse of a sunset out the window, so I had to go check it out. I love getting those sunset pics, especially when they are unexpected. The cloudy skies let the golden sunset peak through. I noticed an arch of some type on a neighboring property, and just so happens, the sun lined up perfect and posed for a pic! It was one of those right place at the right time things, and the rain even stopped long enough for me to get a pic or three!
We enjoyed dinner in The Turquoise Room, located inside the hotel. This is a must if you are staying here. We made prior reservations, but they didn't seem to be too busy the night we were there. There are several rooms in the foyer and hallways filled with memorabilia from back in the day. We didn't see even half of what they had to offer, but really enjoyed what we did see.
Our king size bed was very comfortable and we got a good nights rest. The next morning, we did get to check out a couple of the gardens before we checked out to go stand on the corner :) Before we left town, the hotel called us. They said that we had left a charger behind, so we turned around and went back. Ends up that it wasn't ours but we were thankful they made the attempt to contact us!
