Winslow is a small town in the northern region of the state of Arizona, in the United States of America. While of limited tourism interest itself, it is one of the waypoints along historic Route 66 as well as a gateway to a number of regional attractions.
Winslow is on Interstate highway 40, which follows the roadway of old Route 66 through much of Arizona. Several state and local highways connect the town to Phoenix, about 150 miles away, which is a major commercial air hub. To get to Winslow from Phoenix, you'll just about have to drive.
Lodging in Winslow can charitably be described as "functional" -- geared to the thousands of travelers passing by on I-40 who need a place to sleep and nothing more. The usual motels and motor lodges (Best Western, Days Inn, Super 8, etc.) cluster near the exits, with little to choose among them. For a bit of flavor of the old town and Route 66, try La Posada Hotel, 303 E. 2nd St. (old Route 66), 928-289-4366. Looks interesting from the outside; see what the inside is like and write it up here.
