Business Description

The Weatherford Hotel is one of the most iconic hotels in Flagstaff, serving as the home of three pubs & gills, offering catering services and venues for events. Rich in history and located in the heart of downtown, it is one of the most popular hotels in Flagstaff for visitors, wedding parties and events alike, seeking a unique historic experience with charming hospitality. Located just a block away from the historic Route 66, the Weatherford Hotel is situated among art galleries, boutiques, and assortment of dining and nightlife venues, and adjacent to the central community and tourist gathering spot of Heritage Square. The Weatherford’s New Year’s Eve “Pine Cone Drop” has made national headlines, along with the hotel’s place in favorite small towns 4th of July celebrations. The hotel is just blocks away from Flagstaff City Hall, Coconino Municipal offices and courts, and Hwy 180 to the Arizona Snowbowl and Grand Canyon National Park.

Typical of most frontier towns in the late 19th century, Early Flagstaff was a victim of numerous disastrous fires. Following a particularly bad series of blazes in 1897, the city passed an ordinance requiring all buildings in the business area to be built of brick, stone or iron. Among the new buildings appearing in the 1897 was the predecessor of the Weatherford Hotel, built by John W. Weatherford, a native of Weatherford, Texas. The original structure, built with a facade of red Coconino sandstone, housed a general store of the first floor and living spaces for the Weatherford family upstairs. John Weatherford soon realized that tourism would offer an economic boom to the growing town, largely due to a new rail connection to the Grand Canyon, 80 miles to the north. In March of 1899, Weatherford began construction of a three story modification of his building and there was a grand opening of the Weatherford Hotel on New Year’s Day 1900. For many years, the Weatherford Hotel was the most prominent of the hotels in Flagstaff, entertaining guests such as artists Thomas Moran, publisher William Randolph Hearst, and western author Zane Grey. Grey’s novel, “The Call of the Canyon”, was written in an upstairs room, now part of the Zane Grey Ballroom. At various times, the hotel housed a theater, restaurant, billiard hall, and a local radio station.
