John W. Weatherford opened his Weatherford Hotel in 1900. Over the years
this grand building has been a hotel, a residential facility, a hostel
and back to being a hotel. When it first opened it was hailed as the finest
hotel in Flagstaff. Today the hotel also houses Charly's Pub & Grill
and Zane Grey Ballroom. That grand wrap around balcony had been lost at
one time but has since been replaced.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
