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 (now 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. Fortunately the proposed demolition didn't happen.
In the early 1990's the property 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.
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
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.
