Harvey House Hotels Rt 66

One of my favorites is the La Posada Hotel, Winslow, Arizona which has been fully restored and stands as an oasis in the desert, catering to a new generation of Route 66 adventurers. It is the only original Harvey Hotel on Route 66 that continues to operate as it was first intended. Don't miss the opportunity to have a meal in their Turquoise Room,

The Turquoise Room opened in 2000 under the direction of renowned Chef John Sharpe. John oversees every detail of the preparation and service. According to Sharpe and wife Patricia: “We bake and cook everything from scratch, using only the finest and freshest ingredients, locally sourced to reflect many of the unique regional flavors of the Southwest”.
