In the heart of Silver City, New Mexico, a classic 1938 Art Deco hotel is reborn. The newly renovated historic Murray Hotel will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its original opening in 2013!

Silver City is a small town/ art town/ western town with hiking trails, shops, galleries, and a dozen great restaurants that are an easy stroll from our front door. Attend great downtown events, concerts and festivals.
