La Posada Historic Hotel is one of the last great railroad hotels and one of the finest hotels in the west. Designed by Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, famous for her magnificent Grand Canyon buildings as the Bright Angel Lodge, La Posada was built to resemble a wealthy Spanish hacienda. It was her masterpiece. Some consider La Posada the most important and most beautiful building in the Southwest. It was Colter's favorite.

Built alongside the Santa Fe rail line, La Posada opened in 1930 as the Fred Harvey Hotel, closed in 1957, was mostly gutted in later years for Santa Fe Railway offices, and planned for demolition as late as 1994. This national treasure, reopened as a hotel in 1997, is finally undergoing restoration to its former glory.

Rooms Beautiful furnished and unique. Furnishings range from Mexican rustic to fine antiques and include original pieces. All are named after previous famous guests (as Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Shirley Temple, Gene Autrey, John Wayne, Charles & Anne Lindbergh, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and others. Rooms have no phones to disturb you but all have televisions with cable access and private baths. Here are too are beautiful gardens, a splendid ballroom, arcades, lobby and courts.

We will have our welcome dinner in its restaurant, considered by many to be the finest restaurant in the entire Four Corners region. Hotel tour included.
