{within-spiration | 7 spooky photos at the Hassayampa Inn}

Good Morning Designistas! Today is all about vintage inspiration! Last week we had the pleasure of staying at the Historic Hassayampa Inn in Prescott, Arizona. This stunning hotel opened its doors in 1927 and designed by one of the Southwest's most distinguished architects, Henry Trost. The Inn is truly splendid. Our room was comfortable and quiet and the 1927 vintage elevator was still working!

I decided, since Halloween was around the corner, to take some spookier photos of the hotel. Lets consider for a moment that at one point this Inn was a boarding house, radio station, and an interim campus for Prescott College. Through all those years I would suspect that a ghost or two would take up lodging here. So with my trusty Hipstamatic Camera I went to work to capture the darker side of the Inn. 
First we start with my luggage, a vintage Samsonite that I purchased at a yardsale for $5.

The room had a view of the front of the Inn, a restaurant, and a busy street corner. I personally just loved the vintage-y curtains.

Below is a view of our hallway. It was super quiet, and very white.

The fire escape windows had a lovely seating area.

Just in case...

I couldn't help but snap a selfie with this filter to see if it would make me look spooky too.
If you're in Prescott, I highly recommend this Inn. Walking distance to everything, food was yummy, and although I saw no ghosts in my one night stay, I expect to see some next time!
