Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, Arizona has undergone a significant transformation, renovating the Main Lodge, guest rooms and the brand new Silver Pine Restaurant & Bar.
This quaint hotel originally opened in 1973, surrounded by 500-acres of private forest. The original design had a very cabin-feel with guest rooms that were reminiscent of grandma’s house. While some guests enjoyed the step back in time, the property was due for a fresh and contemporary look.
This massive renovation is being completed in stages, with just two guest lodges left to be renovated. The Main Lodge, which includes the lobby, unique gift shop and meeting/event space, has been completed and the thought that went into the design and finishes is very evident.
The Main Lodge and Silver Pine Restaurant & Bar showcase a careful selection of Arizona products and artwork, including Canyon Diablo Spirits, handmade copper mule mugs, ceramic artwork, and photography. A fireplace adorned with chrysocolla stone, excavated in Morenci, Arizona, welcomes guests upon entry to the historic hotel.
Little America Hotel’s improvement project included an extensive renovation of its meeting area that provides an additional 3,500 SQ. FT. of space, bringing it to 13,770 SQ. FT. of total meeting space.
The transformation of the guest rooms is nearly jaw-dropping. Since there are still two lodges not yet renovated, we were able to see first-hand the dramatic differences. The newly renovated rooms are now a welcoming retreat with natural tones, plush down bedding, custom furnishings from French Heritage, and Spanish tile entries. Once again, there was much thought put into the details of these rooms with artisanal elements and custom-designed pieces throughout, including Ulster woven wool carpets from Northern Ireland, Anichini Bed Throws, and photography by Mikhail Reyfman, Shane McDermott, Tom Bean, and Tom Alexander.
The remaining 123 guest rooms in Lodges 1 and 2 are slated for completion by the summer of 2018.
Little America Hotel in Flagstaff is the perfect retreat for anyone looking to escape to Northern Arizona. If you love the outdoors and hiking, the hotel has it’s own walking trail and is a short drive from many popular hiking trails. The property is also family-friendly with an outdoor pool, playground and plenty of space for outdoor family fun.
