This hotel was recommended to us by friends who live in Durango. We stayed in the Leland House across the street. The room was on the small side but what you might expect from an older hotel. The queen bed was very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast (included in the rate) was served at the Rochester... More

Great location and great staff. Accommodations are charming and comfortable, staff love their jobs and are wonderful ambassadors of their hotel and town. Stayed at the Leland House across the street. Converted apartments make for spacious and well appointed rooms. Will definitely be back.

Our room at the Leland House side of the Rochester Hotel was small...yet it held every comfort we wanted and we never once got in one another's way. AC was a little wonky but worked well enough. Staff was lovely and helpful. Breakfast made other guests gripe about the speed, but it was fine and the buffet items were plentiful.... More

When we have friends or family come to visit us in Durango, this is where we have them stay. This is a charming boutique hotel with an amazing location, just 1 block from Main Avenue. The service is fantastic and very welcoming. If you are lucky enough to be here in the summer/fall, they have music in what they call... More

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.

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!
