Winslow was by far our favourite town on Route 66 - the friendly people as well as the kitsch "Standin' on the Corner" vibe. But by far the best was the evening we spent at La Posada and the wonderful service and food in their restaurant. The room was wonderful and not unreasonably priced - but bear in mind this is a luxury hotel, not some Motel 6. Prices should and do reflect this.
The story of the owners' rescue of that great space is inspiring and there are pictures all over the walls telling that story. The owner is an artist and there is a galley of her work upstairs.
We were able to put many miles behind us, and recharge our batteries for the rest of the drive.
