The Palace Hotel was built across First Street from the Raton Railroad Depot in 1896 in the Romanesque Revival style. The elegant brownstone hotel was the most luxurious hotel in Raton until WWII when the popularity of La Mesa horse racing track eclipsed its location and popularity. The Hotel has been reopened several times since then, most notably by the Tinnie chain of historic hotels in the 1980s.
