Inside the Resort


I'm finishing up my tour of the Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass Resort today with a little tour of the main building of the resort.  This was the first time I had visited this part of the resort and I was impressed with what I saw.  You enter the lobby on the third floor where reception is located but, the main part of the lobby is below looking out over the pool area.


There is a big rock formation in the center of the area with water flowing out of it and through a stream, under the bridge above and out on to the patio area.


Above it all is a ceiling painted with different images of Native American history and activities. 


There was even a quiet little fireplace area where someone could sit and read the paper or talk with friends.  


All in all, I was genuinely impressed with the beauty of the place.  Someone mentioned on one of my previous posts that it reminded them of Santa Fe and I have to agree.  It does have a very strong Southwestern look reminiscent of Santa Fe architecture.

Wow! What a beautiful interior. It's very classy but without seeming cold and unwelcoming.

It's amazing what a few (hundred) bets at the craps table can do.
