This was our first visit to Silver City NM, a delightful town. We stayed at the Murray Hotel. There is lots of history here!
The Murray Hotel was built in 1938 where it became the social center of Silver City with a ballroom with a spring dance floor, restaurants, and all the fixings. Unfortunately, hard times fell and the Murray fell into disrepair. After 35 years of being vacant, new owners from Santa Barbara CA purchased the hotel and they are bringing it back to life. The floor in the lobby is original. The colors for the lobby and the guest rooms are simple, but fitting with the era of the hotel. Renovations are still being completed. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. There are plans to restore the ballroom and again add a restaurant and coffee bar. In the meantime, we received a voucher towards breakfast at a nearby eatery and coffee (delicious!) was available in the lobby.
This is an art-deco hotel that is being brought back to life and it's wonderful to see!
