The La Posada, Mary Colters masterpiece and the Last Great Railroad Hotel. La Posada was built as an architectural fantasy. In 1928 Mary Colter - most influential designer in the Southwest - was asked by the Fred Harvey Company to design what was destined to become the Santa Fe Railways flagship and the finest hotels in Arizona. Colter created an imaginary timber and cattle baron - a Spanish Don - and built for him a magnificent hacienda. To enter the building is to enter another era - like visiting an old castle in Spain or colonial Mexico. LaPosada was built in they style of the late 1700s at a cost rumored at $2 million - an astonishing sum for the day. The main house of 68,000 square feet is bigger than Hearst Castle.
