La Posada

This covered walk is along the back side of the hotel and leads to the old Railway Station. The La Posada was one of the last of the old Harvey Hotels along the Santa Fe RR.


Jane Colter worked for the Fred Harvey Company from 1905 until her retirement in the 1950s. Although famous for her magnificent buildings at the Grand Canyon, she considered La Posada her masterpiece. Here she was able to design or select everything from the structures to the landscape, furniture, maids’ costumes, and dinner china. Many people consider this the most important and most beautiful building in the Southwest.
