The Continental Divide Trail goes right through Silver City, until the trail re-route is finished that will go around town. I was hiking the trail through New Mexico and planned to take a day off in Silver City. I was glad I chose the Palace Hotel--it was cheaper than the chain motels and closer to amenities so I didn't have to walk all over town to get what I needed--laundry, market, restaurant (there is a brew pub across the street and a coffee place around the corner), outdoor store (Gila Hike and Bike), computer at library (although the hotel has wireless).I was also delighted with the ambiance from the 1880's. I enjoyed being on the second floor and looking down on downtown Silver City. The room was comfortable. They provided breakfast, which was good and there was always cookies available for munching. I wish I stayed another night, there's so much to do and see in town..
