They don’t call La Posada a historic landmark without good reason.
The hotel is built around four historic buildings. The old Laredo High School today is the main entrance to the hotel, and houses the Front Desk and Lobby, the Zaragoza Grill, meeting rooms, the Phillip V Ballroom, The Tesoro Club and the hotel’s administrative offices. Our ballrooms are located in what was once a 19th-century convent. The Capitol of the Republic of the Rio Grande dates back to the 1830’s and now houses a museum on the hotel grounds. The famous Tack Room Steak House is located in the elegant Bruni Home, which also dates from the 1800’s.
But we’re part of a larger story. Laredo itself has a long and fascinating history as a nexus of commerce between Mexico and America-as well as a point of contention between New and Old World countries throughout its lifetime. Take a trip with us to learn more about our history-and the history of our community.
