The Palace Hotel - Santa Fe Style

Contributed by

As Santa Fe sought to change her architecture to Pueblo and Territorial style, the Palace Hotel began renovation to comply.  This drawing represents the finished product.  Unfortunately, one night in 1926, the hotel burned to the ground.  It was suspected but never proved that the fire was intentionally set.  The Palace was one of the earliest victims of Santa Fe Style.
