We found La Posada on a trip to Winslow, Arizona. There is little to this town if you are not a fan of the Eagles song “Take it Easy”. That is until we came across the entrance of La Posada Hotel. Walking through the sculptured gardens (filled with sculptures and flowering plants) we are welcomed by Jolly the camel sculpture standing outside the front gate.
The La Posada is a historically restored hotel from an era we all would love to have experienced. It is updated with modern conveniences for the comfort of their guests. The walls of the vast rooms are covered with artwork, many by Tina Mion who, along with her husband and two Parti Poodles own and reside in the Hotel. The rooms are filled with artwork and antiques. Huge reading rooms overlooking the gardens invite guests for lounging and reading. There really is no reason to leave the hotel grounds.
Tina Mion is a world-class artist. We bought one of her prints and since she was home that day we actually got to meet her and have her sign the print.
The hotel also has one of the finest restaurants you will ever dine in, The Turquoise Room.
This is a National treasure and should make it to your destination list. We have stayed here 3 times and will go out of our way to stay a night or two.
