Did You Know?
Fred Harvey hotels, where travelers could get a healthy meal and sleep in comfort right near train stations on their journeys through the Southwest, were known for their excellent service. The El Ortiz Hotel and Lunchroom at Lamy, NM was torn down many years ago. It stood across from the current Amtrak Station at Lamy, which is the stop closest to Santa Fe. La Fonda, the Harvey Hotel at the end of the Santa Fe trail, is still in operation.
