We rendezvous with our family in Durango often. We always stay in the Pittman Suite. The two bedrooms with a full kitchen is perfect for us. Our 3 year old can romp around and play in the shared spaces while the adults have privet rooms. The breakfast is delicious and gets our day off to a good start with no... More

The staff is delightful. Our room was nice --- but unfortunately very cold. The NFL playoffs were on --- our cable was out. The staff could not fix it. The gal said sometimes the maids accidentally hit one of the cables.....that would be IF the maids had serviced our room!! Not worth the price at all

My husband and I, following the reviews found on tripadvisor, stayed 4 nights during the recent Christmas holidays. Our first floor room was delightful - we loved the period furnishings - enhanced with 21st century amenities. The staff was outstanding, and the breakfasts were wonderful. As persons who enjoy walking a town, the location was ideal. We will be back... More

I broke my wrist while my family was skiing and Nancy and Allie were so helpful, going above and beyond! They also have amazing breakfasts and everyone there is so nice and accommodating. This is our place of choice when we are in Durango!

Stayed at the Rochester Hotel while on Christmas Vacation. The entire staff was extremely nice and extended me a generous government employee discount. My room was very clean and welcoming. I thank them for their hospitality during a very heavy snow storm!

Stayed here and can't say I expected it to be that great! I love this hotel. It is just off the main drag. Parking is ok. You can walk to anything in downtown Durango. Love the seating areas just off the east side of the hotel. Breakfast was delicious and the staff is wonderful. Each room is unique and the... More

We stayed in the Rochester (actually their loft apartment upstairs, next door) and enjoyed the meals, snacks, and staff there. The loft apartment was right next door, has dedicated parking out back, and provides an easy walk to great locations around Durango. The hotel staff was friendly and made our stay a pleasant one. We're booked again for the same... More

This historic hotel is welcoming, comfortable, and very interesting with all the photos, and posters of cowboy movies and actors. I loved the room I had: seemed very warm and natural, a room I could live in for long periods. The overall décor lets you feel like you are in an older time and for me it’s quite comforting.

For a resort destination, Durango offers surprisingly little in the way of B & Bs, and its historic hotels (the Strater and the General Palmer), with their proximity to the train station and active bars, can be less than relaxing. For travelers looking for something more authentic than a night in one of the chain hotels on the outskirts of... More
