Most Historic Downtown Hotel
Located in downtown Flagstaff, this hotel first opened its doors on New Years Day in 1900. The architecture, particularly the spirited corner balcony that faces toward Heritage Square, is perhaps the most impressive of old downtown Flagstaff. See the website link for more details on what promises to be a great experience for those passing through town.
As we explored the downtown area, I was drawn to this building. My boys were really hungry and as we walked down the street, we saw others in the dinning room of this hotel. I am at times apprehensive in entering some businesses because of there pub like atmosphere. We felt right at home in Charlys Grill and found that their food was really good. This offered me a chance to look at some of the neat photography of the hotels past. The waitress was so kind to give me a flyer with the hotels history. I walked into the lobby to explore a bit and I thought it would really neat to stay here.
The original structure was built in 1898 and served as a general store on the first floor and the second floor was were the Weatherford family lived. Then in 1899, Mr. Weatherford had a third story added to accommodate hotel services as well as a restaurant. It was completed in 1900 and it is one of Flagstaff gem of historical places.
It has seen many ups and downs with fires, repairs, ownerships and now lovingly being restored by the Taylor family. It still services residence and tourist alike, with lovely hotel rooms, great food, and entertainment. Charly’s Pub & Grill that has some delicious food by the way, and Zane Grey ballroom (named after the writer who wrote a book here) overlooks the historical downtown area.
Directions: Off of Route 66, turn onto Leroux.
Haven't actually stayed there, but the location is great, right downtown Flag. They have two good bars on site as well. Charly's, downstairs, usually has good live music; Zane Grey, upstairs, is a nice relaxing place to have a drink.
Unique Quality: Friends that work there have told me that the building is haunted. There are stories about a lot of the old buildings being haunted, it was the "wild west" after all.
The story goes...A couple was staying at the hotel on their wedding night and ended up getting shot in their room. For years the hotel kept the room in operation, and occassionally they would have people check out in the middle of the night because they said that they woke up and there were two people sitting at the foot of their bed. Everyone had the same story, and it kept happening. So the hotel turned the room into their liquor closet. No one that I know has seen anything since, but they all swear that they get weird vibes in the liquor room, and no one will go there by themselves.
Historic Lodging in Flagstaff
We overnighted at the Weatherford Hotel during a recent roadtrip and had a great time. The hotel is in a historic building (est. 1897) in downtown Flagstaff. The room we stayed in was cozy and decorated in an old fashioned style. Our window looked out towards the railyard and we were just down the hall from the action at the upstairs Zane Grey bar and a stairway away from the live music at the downstairs bar, Charly's. We had a relaxing evening drinking local brews and taking in the atmosphere. The staff was very helpful.
Unique Quality: No TV or phone, but two great bars and live music, so who needs it?
