Most comfortable bed....ever!
My husband, baby and I travelled across the western slope of Colorado in June and stayed at this lovely hotel.
This was by far the nicest place I have stayed in Durango. The bed was extremely comfortable with a pillow-top mattress and fluffy pillows. The lobby was historical looking with nice places to gather. The pool and hot tub were nice, maybe a bit too much chlorine. The pool area opened up onto a veranda overlooking the river where you can purchase snacks or lunch at the "River Rat Cafe."
They were very accomodating to our family and had a crib waiting in the room when we arrived.
We took advantage of the "Dream Deal," which is an extra $10 per night, but gives you breakfast vouchers for 2 adults & 2 kids. This is well worth the extra $10 as the breakfasts were wonderful and gourmet--eggs benedict, real blueberry pancakes, delicious breakfast burrito. I am so glad we chose to add on this option.
The location can't be beat with downtown being just a short walk away and the river just behind the hotel for morning and evening walks on the sidewalk that follows the river.
We will return when we're back in Durango!
DoubleTree view of snow covered moutains
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)
We ate breakfast in the restaurant over-looking the river and it was very nice. Food and service was good.
I've heard all about "cookies upon arrival" We checked-in at 2AM, so cookies were not available then, but I called the front desk the next day and they brought them right up to the room. The cookies were "ok" but I am not really into "gourmet cookies."
We had a great time and this hotel is definitely worth the money!
Great comfort after harrowing drive
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.
The Doubletree was an unexpected relief, extremely comfortable and very fairly priced (with no reservation!). Very comfortable bed, lots of cable channels, pleasant decor, so-so view of the river off a slim balcony, nice shower with hot water. Extra pillows, high-speed available for $9.95 in-room or free in the 2-seater business closet (with windows - nice!) conveniently located in the front hallway. Fast connection too. Nice lounge where I mellowed out with a spiked hot coffee. Twice, they gave us hot milk for free for the baby. I loved it, absolutely adored my brief stay here. PS - nice shampoo, conditioner and soap too! Brand name and gentle on my skin and hair - a rare find in chain hotels.
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!

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 …
... sitting up, saying mama and dada, and reading to them. I can tell the boys enjoy being at her house too. I've never once showed up and they've been crying. Always playing with the older kids once school is out, or goofing off with their new girlfriend Mia. Jenny and her family came out of the blue and we are incredibly lucky to have found them. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the boys stay at home with me ...
... 2 to meet Kepler, Michael and Taylor's 5 month old. If you recall, we first met Michael and Taylor in New Zealand and quickly became best friends. They live in Fort Collins (7 hours away) so any chance we get to meet up, we do.
- Both babies love the Bumbo chair which we got used this past week. It helps the babies sit up and strengthen their backs and necks.
... a good moment.
The young cop had very dark glasses which he never took off, which made the whole business even worse. It was so intimidating. Rummaging for my passport, I feared the worst. He took it and went and logged all the details whilst I paced and prayed.
Eventually he returned and I asked him about the engine warning light and played the female card.

Yay! We are celebrating our anniversary today. And boy does time fly when you're having fun! Four years have gone by fast and I can't imagine spending it with anyone else but that cute hunk of mine. But put aside our anniversary for a second, the best present we could receive on this day is a trip to the OB Clinic to find out the genders of the babies! I'll give you ...
