We found this hotel while traveling through Salida Colorado this past week. I wanted to stay "off the strip" and experience more a of a "old charming Hotel" and WOW was I impressed. The Hotel was built in 1901 and most recently used as a "longer term" cheap Hotel to what unfortunatly falls to most of these older Hotels.
The new owners have painstakenly remodeled this Hotel over the last 3yrs enlarging the rooms and hallways while keeping the original woodwork, trestles and adding new windows and even keeping the original radiators for "looks". The original copper ceiling remiains in the lobby and they painstakenly had the plaster redone throughout the hotel to complete the remodel.
The beds are overstuffed, large and very comfortable with crisp fine linen that just completes the experince. Finally you are supplied with fresh ground coffie for your morning and greeting with fresh muffins and homemade "greek yougurt" fruit parfaits.
The staff was warm and friendly and happy to show me as many rooms as I wanted..." I love Hotels and good remodels"
We throughly enjoyed our stay opting for a large suite on hte 3rd floor overlooking hte park, street and river. It was simply very enjoyable and I would highly recomened this Hotel for any stay in Salida and hope to return.
