Another early-ish start, up just after 6am & down for breakfast at 7am. This is the only hotel to offer complimentary breakfast. I just had some toast, I can never be to sure about pastries/cakes etc because of my nut allergy.
We were all on the coach by 8am, we took 4hrs to reach our destination of Silverton but what a lovely scenic …
Day 14 Cortez Colorado to Durango Colorado 43.2 miles 3,030 ft climbing.
We sleep in until 7 a.m. As today's ride is so short we set off at 9.a.m. and stop for coffee and blueberry muffins at Zuma's about 15 miles out of town. It's a fabulous coffee shop - don't miss it if you ever come this way!. For the 3rd day in a row the scenery is …
Nor wind to blow
Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full, may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made, by the hands of men
There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for, your steps alone
You who choose to lead must follow
But if you ...

They told us about places to go in Santa Fe and we shared about Bald Head Island (for their Thanksgiving with friends) and the Asheville area. Interesting people and conversation. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Durango
My husband, baby and I travelled across the western slope of Colorado in June and stayed at this lovely hotel.
After reading some reviews and doing research on the Doubletree Hotel in Durango, I elected to ask for a "river view" room. I am so glad I did! It was a gorgeous view and so peaceful. Sometimes, I would go on the balcony and just read. (I had college papers to write while I was there) Which brings me to the next great ammenity...Cable connenction in the room. This was great, because I was able to get essays and some discussion questions answered online. The price was reasonable, able $9.95 per day, (If I recall correctly)
I had an extremely frightful drive into Durango one evening in February after leaving Canon City, going home to San Diego. Not used to snow driving anyway, but those mountain passes sans guardrails are hair-raising.
Nice, clean, convenient
Nice big rooms. Stay on the river side away from the noise. Warm tasty cookies on arrival are a nice touch. Friendly staff, esp. Jason at the front desk. This hotel is convenient to the train and downtown. Skip the restaurant unless you like grandma-type hotel restaurants; the staff is indifferent at best, the food is mediocre. Try Cafe Sarie instead.
Don't miss the Silverton train. Sit on the east side going up.
We stated at this hotel for two nights. Upon check in, we received a warm cookie and it was tastey. We had a room facing main street. I would suggest that you get a room facing the river, less noise due to the traffic. We had an upgraded room and the amenities were terrific. The bed is conftorable and the water pressure is strong. The only thing missing is a small refrig. The swing shift gal is less than friendly and this was addressed to mgmt. The hotel is close to Main street, this is where you will find all the finer restaurants. The walk to the Durango Train is less than five minutes. Over all, this is a very nice place.
Strolling on the Animas River
We spent one night there, on a road trip, without a reservation ... and got a great ground floor room whose sliding door opened onto a small patio, grassy lawn, and the Animas River walkway. Early the next morning, we went out walking along the river, which has a paved walkway that follows the river through town.
The room was large and comfortable, and the beds were excellent. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd return in a heartbeat.
Can recommend the Doubletree
Although we spent only one night at the Doubletree, we found it quite pleasant. We opted to upgrade to a room with balcony view of the Animas River. The room was large and comfortable.
The hotel is about two blocks from Durango's main street. You can easily walk to a restaurant from the hotel. We ate that evening at Chez Grand-mere; a short distance from the hotel. It is not cheap, but the meal was excellent.
Nice hotel - bad experience...
Spent two nights at here while in Durango on business. Had to ask for a room change right off the bat due to a horrible stench (men's colonge) in the room. Was moved to a lesser room next door with no balcony. Had to make a call to maint. because the TV didn't work and was forced to pay the $10.95 per day high-speed internet access charge because none of the 800 # trunks out of the hotel were working and I needed access to my email. I ate three meals in the restaurant and can't say any of them were worth the price. The hotel was nice, room was clean and spacious, and the staff was friendly but all in all - - this was not a good experience and for the price, I expect much better.
Not cheap but very good
This is the hotel to stay in in Durango if you are not concerned too much about cost and if you are traveling with kids. If you are looking for a more victorian/wildwest property, consider the General Palmer first then the Strater. If you are looking for value, Durango has many many motels a little away from downtown. The Doubletree line is very reliable and family friendly, and this hotel is no exeception. Big rooms with two queen beds and no extra charge for a very good quality cot. Plenty of extra down pillows on request. Spring for a room with a view of the Animas river. Walking distance to downtown and the train station. Very nice indoor pool. I would stay here again.
Wonderful & relaxing
Loved our balcony view of the Animas River. Really hated to leave. Great rooms, great staff...... only gripe I have, was we wanted adjoining rooms (for my mother-in-law, the babysitter). They said they had one at check-in..But that they could NOT guarantee the adjoining rooms for all three nights. After arguing over how ridiculous that was...we did get it for all three nights. Not sure we would win that battle a second time!
