We loved everything about our 3 night stay at the Murray. Our comfortable 4th floor corner room was light and airy ~ the bed was perfect, the decor elegant. The glass blocks in the bathroom exterior wall added to the olden days atmosphere. We were stepping back in time but with state-of-the-art conveniences. And quiet too ~ everything settles down early in Silver City. Not having a TV added to that delicious night time silence.
As the hotel dining room is still one of the parts to be renovated, we were given a voucher for breakfast at a restaurant within easy walking distance. Breakfast was excellent ~ and everything is within walking distance: at least 3 outstanding restaurants where the quality of food is astonishing for this size town. Accordingly, we had 3 memorable dinners. And there are many very good smaller places for lunch, breakfast and snacks ~ we ate ourselves silly!
But we were always on the go ~ visited countless art galleries and antique stores, hiked up Boston Hill, explored the college campus. We took day trips, too: the cliff dwellings, the hot springs, another hike with a local Apache guide.
And so lovely to return after our various outings to our room at The Murray ~ a true sanctuary. The staff is wonderful ~ friendly, cheerful, helpful, informed. We especially enjoyed talking with Debbie the night manager. Oh, I almost forgot: the coffee in the lobby every morning is really really good!
