November 2012 - Flagstaff AZ
Originally built in 1926 under a citizen subscription legislation, the Hotel Monte Vista soon became the place to stay for transcontinental travelers. For travelers and town folk alike, the hotel offered an oasis of lush surroundings and a chance to rub shoulders with the local and national elite. Located just one block north of famous Route 66, the Hotel Monte Vista has been home to thousands of adventurous and colorful characters, from bank robbers to headlining Hollywood stars.
The Hotel Monte Vista remains a centerpiece for Historic Downtown Flagstaff.
