La Castenada

Las Vegas, NM ---- La Castenada was the first Harvey House. It is about 50,000 square feet and has 40 rooms. It's heyday was during the expansion of the railroad into the west. Even Teddy Roosevelt came to Las Vegas and stayed there. It's now in private hands and slowly being renovated by the owners of another former Harvey House in Winslow, Arizona, La Posada. If they can do in Las Vegas what they did in Winslow, La Castenada will become a gem again.
