Awesome hotel! If you like historical hotels this is the place to stay! They have a beautiful little courtyard in the back of the property and have music and events there. They had a great breakfast and the staff goes over and above to make sure your stay is perfect. The cookies in the afternoon are to die for😀. There... More

We just returned from an excellent 3 night stay at the Rochester! Wish that we could have spent more time here. The staff was so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. We had a king room that was very comfortable. And a great location in Durango with easy access to the city and sights! Thank you Rochester for making... More

On historic Second Avenue this charming historic B&B style hotel is a little haven right next to busy Main Avenue restaurants and galleries. Beautiful garden hosts summertime late afternoon concerts with drinks and light meals available benefitting local charities. Highly recommended by locals!

I will stay at the place again! I love the comfy vintage feel. The beds are wonderful and the breakfast in the courtyard garden made me never want to leave. A well-located Hotel in a beautiful old building. The staff is professional and very welcoming - a bonus!

A friend and I stayed for two nights, with a ride on the train during the day. Hotel is walking distance to the train station. The staff at the hotel was attentive without being intrusive. I will stay there every chance I get, and I am inspired to find more chances. (I would like more electrical outlets since we had... More

the room was pleasant enough, though small. We arrived near midnight to a locked door with no desk coverage, but making a call to a listed # got us into a box with our room key. The room was fine, bed comfortable, etc. However, the walls were paper thin. My wife and i were talking quietly and when we got... More

I recently stayed at the Rochester/Leland during a conference. The staff were very friendly and there's a comfortable feel that makes you feel at home. While amenities are limited they have nice touches such as tea and cookies available every afternoon and a bar available at request. I don't often get the chance to sleep in and so missed the...

If I could do a 5+ that's what I would do. But since they cap me at 5, know that I'm adding the + on my own. From start to finish our experience was top notch for customer service.
