      Historical Traveler Reviews Strater Hotel Durango

      Loved Staying Here!

      from

      My wife and I stayed here for 1 night before seeing Mesa Verde. The hotel is charming from the Victorian furniture to the wallpaper color (ours was sage). We liked the cozy space, and appreciated the renovated bathrooms, free parking, and 2 free gym passes for the Durango Rec Center to the north of town. The service at the front desk was a bit brusque, but otherwise everything was great. We loved the Cyprus Cafe for dinner just up the hill one block and to the left (next to the Leland B&B).

      Too short a stay

      from

      We only had a one night stay traveling between Moab and Colorado Springs. A charming throw-back to an olden day Victorian hotel. Great location, helpful staff. Breakfast is minimal, but there are terrific low-cost options very close.

      The nearby Bistro 701 was superb for dinner.

      For one night, the standard room was adequate. But if you are staying more than one night, choose one of the larger deluxe rooms.

      A step back in time

      from

      My sister and I stayed at the Strater Hotel in Jan. It was very beautiful and made us feel like we were in a different time period. The staff was very friendly. Henry's had awesome food and service. Durango is a beautiful place and anyone who visits should stay here. Make sure you ride the train.

      Best place in Durango..A place to remember...

      from

      Best Hotel in Durango and we have stayed at them all during the past 15 years.....A do not miss while in this town.

      Had Our Wedding There!

      from

      We decided to have our wedding and reception there. The entire staff, especially Anglea, the events coordinator went above and beyond to ensure that our day was exquisite! The food served at the reception was better than at any other reception I have attended, and the prices were not supersized because it was a wedding. The honeymoon suite was fabulous. The staff worked with all involved (florist, photographer, videographer, etc.) and left me with very little to worry about.

      I could not have had such an amazingly perfect day without their help!

      Loved the Strater and their restaurants

      from

      The Strater Hotel and their restaurants on both sides of the hotel are wonderful! Very friendly and efficient staff who made us feel very welcome during our two-day stay. Henry's (their restaurant) has superb food and a piano bar. "The Office" and the Diamond Belle Saloon are great also with live ragtime music, bluegrass music, and great atmosphere. All of this is an easy walk to the Durango to Silverton train. Much better than average continential breakfast is also included in the room rate. We would go back in a heartbeat!

      Beautiful Area

      from

      we had the time of our lives, we went to mesa verde,and stayed at the strater hotel.we also did lots of shopping.prices were very desirable. we will definitly will go again.

      Brits abroad!

      from

      We stayed one night in May, en-route from Phoenix to Denver. We loved it!! it was clean,comfortable and extremely atmospheric. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpfull and we would love to think that we might stay there again some day. The only thing missing was the sound of John Waynes spurs jangling as he sauntered through the lobby!!

      Wow!!

      from

      We loved the Strater. It is a wonderful example of a Victorian hotel. It had comfortable beds and beautiful rooms. They even have a book in the room where all past guests can write about their experiences, it was a good read before going to bed. It is located in a perfect area, with restraints and shops all around, and if you have the right room, you can see the Durango Silverton train pulling out of the station a few times a day. Plus, there is a great Coffee / Espresso bar located right across the street if you are in the mood for a coffee or treat.I won't stay anywhere else except the Strater when I go to Durango!!

      Not for Everyone

      from

      This hotel is a quaint, old victorian-era hotel that's located in the heart of old-town Durango. There are some very nice antique decorations and furnishings in the hotel but it lacked a lot of the modern conveniences that I have come to expect in a hotel in this price range (over $100/night). For example, the bathroom was excruciatingly tiny and cramped; the bathroom did not contain a bathtub, only a small shower stall. I really would have liked an old-time claw foot bathtub for romantic evenings. The room did not come with a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator nor hair dryer. These amenities I generally expect in most rooms nowadays. I asked to have a coffee maker brought up but I was told that they did not allow cooking elements in the rooms. I can understand that since it is an old hotel, but they did not provide coffee pots in the lobby or any kind of hot drinks except during the continental breakfast. However, the coffee was so bad that we had to go out to one of the local coffee joints to get our coffee. That was very disappointing. Also, they did not have any of the nice touches that I have seen in most other Colorado inns or hotels such as fresh-made cookies or desserts sitting out. They had a small sitting area in the lobby but again they did not put out any reading materials, drinks, etc to make it a comfortable place to sit and read. I think the service was okay but not especially friendly. I really expected more from this level of hotel. I would not stay here again.

In-between popping nooks I found I can successfully unload the dishwasher while making a bottle while sweeping the kitchen floor. I can hold a baby while shaving my legs and brushing my teeth. And I can blog (right now) ...

      What I find myself saying more than anything to those who ask about the trip in terms of midwifery, is that now I am ready to go back and have a real exchange. I feel like this trip was crucial in giving me the perspective and knowledge needed to understand what it is that I have to offer women in Africa, and ...
