Hotel Monte Vista, Flagstaff

Listed under

The Hotel Monte Vista opened for business on New Year's Day, 1927, having been funded by a group of prominent Flagstaff citizens who recognised that Flagstaff was in need of a first class accommodation for the rising tourism in the area. In the 40's and 50's, as the popularity of western films was on the rise, the hotel became the first choice for many Hollywood stars such as John Wayne, Jane Russell, Spencer Tracy, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby who shot at the nearby Sedona and Oak Creek Canyons.

The hotel itself has also been the star on occasions having been featured in Hollywood films such as Casablanca and Forrest Gump!

The hotel is a popular gathering point for locals and so all of the rooms are located on the second, third and fourth floor above the lobby and their two very popular bars. There is both an elevator and a staircase provided for you to access your room.

Located in the historic district of Flagstaff, the hotel is in a prime location with plenty of opportunities to explore the local area.

"We stayed at the Monte Vista in Aug 2011, and were really impressed by the Hotel, the service and the local attractions.  Highly recommended!"

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
