Lobby Window.jpg


The historic Palace Hotel was built in 1909 offering 44 boarding rooms to weary travelers coming in off the Denver & Rio Grande (D&RG) Rail Road.  Now consisting of a diverse array of condominiums, many available for short-term rental, the Palace Hotel has converted it's vintage lobby into a boutique gathering spot for entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators and game changers.  It is now simply known as THE LOBBY

With private offices, shared desks, meeting rooms and the boutique lobby to convene, THE LOBBY is where Salida gathers!

Small Business Development Center


As of September 1, 2021, the main SBDC office for Chaffee, Lake and Park counties re-located in to THE LOBBY.

The Central Mountain SBDC and THE LOBBY are announcing a new strategic partnership that will build on their previous collaborations and bridge the region’s premier small business support organization with Salida’s newest entrepreneur hub.

Through this partnership, Central Mountain SBDC and THE LOBBY will be able to provide small business owners and entrepreneurs access to new highly visible shared work, meeting, and event space.

B.A. Dallas Gallery


B.A. Dallas will be exhibiting his art in THE LOBBY event space through February, 2022.  You need to see this colorful display!

B.A. Dallas is best known for his Dirty Modern West large-scale paintings, but his extensive entrepreneurial background also brings experience owning and operating a distillery, speakeasy, and a coffee shop.  As he re-locates his family, studio, and gallery from Leadville, his quirky, colorful presence will only add to Salida’s growing artist community.
