Welcome to the palace hotel and bathhouse, Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Travel Back in History
Established in 1901, the Palace Hotel and Bathhouse has been serving guests for over 100 years. Built to resemble the architecture of European castles, our hotel and bathhouse has unique features that are seldom seen in North America.
Over the years, the Palace Hotel – once a bordello – has played host to a variety of guests from both coasts of the US and Europe. In the early 20’s mobsters frequented the hotel, and we also hosted celebrities such as W.C. Fields.
Experiencing a few intermittent periods of vacancy due to wars and economic calamity throughout the 20th century, the Palace Hotel and Bathhouse began a restoration project in the 1970s and continued until 1983. Today, our hotel features 21st century amenities, all while maintaining its old world charm.
Turn of the Century Features
Just as 19th and 20th century travelers would have expected, we provide full service features and amenities to make you feel as though you have truly traveled back to Victorian Era America.
Indulge in your complimentary and fully stocked mini-fridge for refreshments and treats on the house. During the time in which our hotel and bathhouse was established, complimentary amenities such as these would have been the norm, and we want to do everything we can to uphold our accredited history of service and luxury.
In the morning, call down to us for your complimentary breakfast which we will deliver right to your room. Our breakfasts are not the average American breakfast. In keeping with our roots, we offer a light and refreshing breakfast featuring pastries, seasonal fresh fruits, tea, coffee and juice – similar to the type of breakfast that would have been enjoyed by the upper class during the Victorian Era.
When you aren’t out exploring Eureka Springs, sit back and relax in our vintage inspired Jacuzzi bathtubs – a unique feature that you won’t want to miss when you stay with us!
Victorian Era Bathhouse Experience
In 1901, if you needed a bath, a steam, massage, or special treatment during your stay at the Palace, you could head downstairs to the bathhouse spa. The bath and the steam in the ‘Turkish Bath’ was $0.50 and $1.00 respectively.
Our restored bathhouse can offer you the same – and more – of these unique luxurious offerings (of course, adjusting the prices for inflation)! Spring water from Harding Spring will be soothing as you relax in the comfort of our Victorian Era bathhouse and spa.
