An experience not to be missed. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, then I highly recommend this address. This bed & breakfast is a restored bordello/saloon from the 1900s. The bedrooms are upstairs and downstairs there is a bakery and gift shop with Route 66 memorabilia. It is also supposedly haunted but we didn't see any ghosts ! There is wireless internet access which is useful. We stayed in Best Gal's Room. This comfortable suite with private bathroom and a couch in a sitting room is nicely decorated with antique furnishings. The vintage Grand Canyon Railway departs for the Grand Canyon from just across the street. The room faces the street and the railway but there was no noise and we slept soundly with the window opened ! In the morning, we met the other guests for breakfast in the bakery. The breakfast was lovely with delicious pastries, cereals, fresh fruit and fruit juice. John Holst, owner and hospitable innkeeper greeted us and spent time talking about the history of the building. Local historian and involved in the campaign to save the Route 66 and the town of Williams, he eagerly shared information about the town, the Grand Canyon and the local area. Definitely a refreshing change from the standard hotel!
