“A perfect switch”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

My family and I switched to this hotel in the middle of our stay in Salida. The rates were great, as well as the space. Beautifully decorated like an old fashioned appartment, this place was great. Comfy beds, clawfoot bathtub, and great tv were among the awesome parts of this stay along with fresh yogurt parfaits outside on a table every morning. Its right in town and was an awesome experience!

We were lucky enough to find ourselves in Salida Colorado on a driving holiday in America. This hotel exudes "old World charm" but with all the modern perks! The rooms are beautiful, we stayed in room 302 which has a beautiful view of the park across the road. We had our own little kitchen with a cute table for two. We dined here on take-away local pizza (yummy) and enjoyed people watching down below in the street and in the park. A river runs through Salida and there was a little white - water, plenty of kids in canoes mucking around on or in the water. The Palace Hotel is situated close to the quaint shopping streets and there are a few really wonderful galleries selling local paintings, pottery and glass ornaments. The hotel staff were really helpful and there was a local painter set up in the gallery - reception area creating wonderful "works of art" right before your very eyes. There is a great little pub on the opposite corner to the hotel where we sat and had a drink with the locals. There is also a beautiful little Christmas shop where I bought a few local baubles for our tree come Christmas time.
Salida is a small town, with small town values and is a little bit of a step back in time, a real delight and a "must see" if you are in the area. Hotel is a top ten and I would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the park, you do have to carry your bags up stairs so bear this in min...

This boutique hotel deserves my first-ever online review - we went to Salida for a last-minute getaway for our 10 year anniversary and had no hotel reservations. This historic hotel has just been remodeled and is perfectly done, simple and comfortable design, very clean (no bad smells like many old hotels). Excellent morning room service included (fresh baked muffins and coffee were so good!) Great front desk service and ideal location. We did have the Governor's suite, so the view was good, some of the rooms do not have views but are very nice.

Great location- right out the front doors are the amazing shops, restaurants, and awesome river walk. We looked at several other places before getting reservations and are glad we stuck with this one. Nice setting inside. Rooms are big. Would be perfect for an extended stay as well.

My husband and I were heading north from Pagosa Springs stopping in little towns as we came upon them. Thankfully, we saw the small sign indicating downtown Salida, and quickly turned off the main thoroughfare. We found the Palace Hotel, which was originally built in 1909, and decided to stay there. The new owners did a fabulous job refurbishing the place, turning a 44 room hotel into 14 lovely suites. The original woodwork is beautiful, and the very tasteful decorating was elegant and warm. The suites were very reasonably priced, and a yummy breakfast was even delivered to our room in the morning. We loved the Palace Hotel and the quaint, artistic town.

We really enjoyed our night at the Palace Hotel. Each of the four suites occupied by our traveling group was tastefully done and very comfortable. The continental breakfast was delivered to our room on time and was very tasty. The location in downtown Salida is convenient to restaurants and shopping. The river is only a few steps away. Would love to stay there again!

We had a wonderful five night stay at Salida's historic Palace Hotel, located in Salida's charming downtown area. The hotel's impressive restoration has retained the inn's history, while offering modern day comforts. The Palace Hotel is perfectly situated for exploring Salida's array of charming arts & crafts, crystal/mineral gems shops, & arts events (at Salida's restored Steamplant Center). The hotel's staff goes out of its way to make all guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask staff for specifics on room details.

Green Features: This hotel is justifiably proud of being very sensitive to the environment.
