I have stayed at the Rochester Hotel on a monthly/bi-monthly basis for almost two years. Each experience has been very positive, and I look forward to each of my visits. The rooms are large and cosy. They have sitting space for working alone or with colleagues and big, soft beds for sleeping. The rooms can made very dark, which I... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Rochester and we were not disappointed. The staff is amazing - friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are the best we've had in Durango and the atmosphere is relaxed (but you could eat in a hurry if needed). We have enjoyed visiting with the other guests at breakfast. The 2nd Ave. location is perfect... More

AMAZING - is an understatement. We started our trip from Tucson to Candian border back through Durango, CO. With no rooms reserved we were a bit nervous. However, one of the locals recommended the Rochester. We absolutely can't say enough about the stay. The staff is wonderful and our breakfast was wonderful. We loved the bell service and well, everything.... More

I had the opportunity to stay the the Rochester Hotel last week. It was wonderful! The accomodations were very comfortable. The staff was amazing; everyone from the front desk to the early morning chefs were smiling and charming. There was a great concert playing in the courtyard when I arrived. The breakfasts were delicious too! I loved the history of... More

Great staff and the breakfast was memorable. We will definitely stay here again; a welcome change from the typical chain hotels. When you look closely, there are a few minor blemishes, but this is a pretty old building. The management and staff should be proud, their hard work is obvious.

After reading reviews I thought this is a great place to splurge on our trip (I'm no trust funder & this is expensive to me). I have to say that for $250 a night I was really disappointed. What did I expect? I don't know, maybe plush amenities, spa products & complementary wine in a cool room. Anyway, to me... More

This has to be one of the most interesting places to stay in Durango, and the breakfast was by far the best we had on our whole trip across the US. The hotel was built in 1892 and it is immaculately decorated throughout. The rooms and hallways are decorated with movie posters of some of the western movies filmed in... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The other rooms we saw had much larger TVs and had chairs. Water pressure in the shower is horrible and you get constant ice cold or scalding hot blast during your shower. Other than that no complaints. Its right in the middle of everything so walking to places... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us! The Rochester is an older building, and with that age does come occasional spikes in water pressure and temperature. We are so sorry that you had to deal with it. We enjoyed having your group stay with us, and we hope to see you in the future. More

Lovely spacious rooms each tied to its own Western movie, excellent continental breakfast with a different hot dish optional every day. Helpful friendly staff. One block from historic Main Street and a few minutes from the Durango - Silverton Railroad, and from the nicest restaurants. Only possible drawback for some people - no elevator to second floor.

We were in Durango for our grand niece's graduation. We wanted something homey & sweet with the western feel.Family who live in Durango recommended the Rochester & we have thanked them. The hotel is lovely with a warm & welcome feeling. The room had a beautiful quilted bed cover & great mattress. The breakfast will not win any awards BUT... More
