Maybe quirky would be a better word for the Palace Hotel. As noted in other reviews the rooms are not cookie cutter, nor is the furniture, the lobby, the breakfast area. The place is truly one of a kind, unique. And whether or not it appeals to you probably has much to do with your personal expectations for charm.
The location, in the fascinating old downtown is excellent. Close to great restaurants and a number of galleries and stores. The furniture in our suite had seen better days and there were some strange touches, like 2 tvs in the living room. We never tryed either of them but I assume one of them didn't work. They were both old models. The rooms were clean enough. They didn't seem sparkling but that may just be a result of the old mismatched furniture and fixtures. The toilet bowl finish was peeling. We did not experience any noise problems mentioned in some of the other reviews, Silver City in general seemed rather quiet when we were there (1st weekend in Dec). I loved Silver City and that area of SW New Mexico and will return someday to explore it further. Whether or not I would stay at the Palace again however is an open question, basically would the great location that encouraged walking the downtown vs driving it take precedence over the tattered feeling inside the hotel.
