Should the City of Canon City acquire (at no cost) The Hotel St. Cloud for redevelopment or restoration? The City would qualify for so many grants as a municipality and would be able to finish the project more quickly!

The Historic St. Cloud Hotel

The Hotel St. Cloud is working toward reclaiming its place as the keystone to Historic downtown Cañon City.

The message to the local citizens as well as the tourism industry is an important component in the importance of the city’s downtown heritage, historic buildings, and character. Once open, not only will it employ members of our community but hotel guests will directly improve both the daytime and nighttime population in our downtown area and entire region. These guests will venture outside the hotel walls and purchase items from nearby shops, dine in downtown restaurants, attend local events, participate in outdoor adventure and immerse themselves in our culture and area. That will help us all, and benefit us as a community!


Originally built at this location in 1890, the Hotel St. Cloud is one of the oldest hotels still standing in the State of Colorado.  

Originally constructed in nearby Silver Cliff in 1878-1879, when the silver industry busted, the owner dismantled the hotel and shipped the materials to Canon City, where it was constructed at its current location at 6th and Main.

It is a contributing building to the National Register “Canon City Downtown Historic District”.

Excellent example of the Second Empire style

Elevator added in 1892 – the first in Canon City.

Decreed a “first class hotel” by the local paper, the Hotel St. Cloud became a popular destination for those visitors who came to Canon City to partake of the healing waters of the natural springs nearby.
