Gadsden Hotel Douglas Arizona

I was with a friend last week who lost a family member, so 3 of us friends went on a 700 mile road trip to the funeral. We all live in Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point, Mexico. The services were in Douglas Arizona, then a quick visit across the border into Agua Prieta Mexico.

There was adventure at every turn on the drive there. Crazy hail storn on the freeway where many cars were pulled over waiting for it to pass. Then more rain on the drive there, then finally arrived in the early evening to the church for the service. That first evening we stayed at the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas Arizona. Had a chance to visit with the family, lots of love surrounding our friend. What a beautiful historic place to be. The owner, Florencio, took us up to our floor in the over 100 year old Otis elevator. The Tiffany glass is beautiful, and there was a wonderful grand staircase. History says that Pancho Villa was riding his horse up the staircase, and broke off a small piece of the stair with the hoof of the horse. The bar (I think Saddle and Spur) was very cute, I spent time there and the lounge in the lobby, learning new drinks from the owner, Rosa Anel. Yolanda the bartender was very sweet.

We had a very nice breakfast in the restaurant Casa Segovia, and the piano player in the lobby was awesome.

See below some photos, including the one of the copper mug I purchased from the bar, the last one with the logo!

I also went in to the little museum inside the hotel, really cool, seeing photos from the old West.
Although the trip was for  a sad occasion, we still had a good time visiting friends and family. The Mass and services were beautiful. We so much enjoyed the hotel, where the owners were very welcoming and accomodating. Excellent customer service. We plan on another trip!
