Durango has a vibrant main street and the Strater is right in the middle of everything. It's a classy historic building that has been impeccably maintained. My wife and I had a 4th floor room which was charming, clean and quiet. We enjoyed the lively happy hour at the The Office bar. Our room included a full hot breakfast in... More

Attention to detail on this hotel is amazing. Beautiful antiques blend seamlessly with modern amenities. Our room was fairly small but had a comfortable bed and was nicely furnished. We had a view of the steam train line from the room, which I loved! Breakfast was good for $5, although limited selection as expected. Durango is a great place to... More

We traveled through Colorado with two families and stayed in the Strater for two nights while in Durango. It was the perfect location to shops, restaurants and the train station. We LOVED Diamond Belle Saloon! The atmosphere was unique and definitely has you feeling you are in the Old West. Highly recommended it!

I did not stay here, but I visited the hotel and the saloon. This lobby of this hotel is steeped in vivid colors and history. The front desk is nostalgia from a hundred years ago. The lobby still maintains period sofas, desks and chairs. The staff us very friendly and knowledgeable. The saloon is period and you are served by... More

Stayed here 2 nights. Picked it because of the good reviews and loved the location. The rooms were nice. Only complaint is trying to take a hot shower is challenging. We went on the train one morning and that was very handy to get to. Don't think you can sleep in, though. Those trains are a good alarm clock. Lol... More

The property is great, old style, centrally located, with good rooms. They were quite busy when we were there, which is probably why there was a few minor problems at breakfast, on checkout, and with the service. We would be glad to stay there again, though.

Anyone who takes the effort to say anything bad about the Strater is a “Glass Half-Empty” personality type. The Strater’s Old West Ambience is truly unique and lovely. We stayed for one night in the Gerry Ford room (333) and we were very impressed. It’s a King room and very quiet and comfortable. Dinner in the “Mahogany Grill” restaurant is... More

Very pleased with our choice of hotel and our choice of room. My husband and I were on a 3 night visit to Durango, Colorado, to take a trip on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway - see www.durangotrain.com - and the Strater Hotel was ideally located, within walking distance of Durango Railway Station. Our room was number 422,... More

This is our second stay here. It is truly "a little slice" of the old West. The rooms are up to date and very comfortable. The saloon is a fun place to have lunch and a drink. The restaurant has great food and really below average service. Stay here, eat in one of the many fine restaurants in Durango.

Our group of two grandparents, a parent, a 9 year old and a 7 year old loved the historic feel of the hotel. The staff was very gracious and the rooms were period. The location on Main Ave. was great for the historic downtown area. We highly recommend this property!
