The La Posada Hotel was built in 1929/30 by the Fred Harvey Company. Architect Mary Colter designed the Spanish Colonial Revival style sixty-two room hotel and the attached Santa Fe Railroad (Amtrak) depot. The La Posada Hotel closed in the mid 1950's and became offices for the Santa Fe Railroad. In the late 1980s the railroad talked about moving out of the building and having it demolished.

In the early 1990's it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and in 1997 Allan Affeldt and Tina Mion purchased the building and the railroad stayed. Five rooms in the tower were quickly redone and opened to paying guests in late 1997. It is located at 303 E. Second St., which was being reworked in this 2009 photo.

The main entrance shown in this 2013 photo brings you into this hallway. The gift shop and guest registration desk are through the door on the far left.

The La Posada's sign near Route 66 points to the hotel entrance. La Posada means "the Resting Place". It was a swell "resting place" costing something like $2,000,000 US by the time it was finished and landscaped according to some reports.
