HOUSING IS PROVIDED for Saturday night at the iconic Hotel Monte Vista in downtown Flagstaff.
Originally built in 1926 the Hotel Monte Vista soon became the place to stay for transcontinental travelers. For travelers and town folk alike, the hotel offered an oasis of lush surroundings and a chance to rub shoulders with the local and national elite. Located just one block north of famous Route 66, the Hotel Monte Vista has been home to thousands of adventurous and colorful characters, from bank robbers, to headlining Hollywood stars, Hotel Monte Vista has remained steadfast in its commitment to serve its patrons. The Hotel Monte Vista remains a centerpiece for Historic Downtown Flagstaff. Dozens of fine shops, restaurants, and businesses of all kinds, are within a few blocks and The Monte Vista Lounge offers live music on the weekends. This hotel has hosted old time movie stars from Bing Crosby to Cary Grant, all of whom have told eerie stories of ghosts sightings and hauntings that have taken place in this hotel. Think you can survive the night? You are all welcome to stay in the penthouse suite as part of your registration, if you dare. Just bring a blanket and a sleeping bag to crash for the night!
