Just walk out of the front door lobby, shops, restaurants, and the Durango Train ride are walking distance.We loved the complimentary coffee in the morning which was located by the elevator, on a nice serving table. There are 3 restaruranst at the Strater. We... More

We spent 3 nights at the hotel. The first night we had a room that was on the 4th floor. It was furnished beautifully but there was a lot of street noise and the bed was a double with a timber base at the end. The following morning we asked to be moved to a queen room. We were given... More

Initially, we thought the hotel was very cool and historic. But, we discovered that the hotel was not managed well and the hotel restaurants and bars were run by inept fools. The rooms were not clean and the customer service was awful. We will never return to this hotel or any of the restaurants again!

We really loved this hotel. It not only brings you back in time, but is perfectly located on Main Street and walking distance to everything. Not to mention has 2 bars (with live music in one of them) and a restaurant within the hotel! Will definitely be back!

We stayed 3 nights @ the Strater in December 2014. It was our first stay there and enjoyed our time there and in Durango. The old hotel is beautiful and the staff gracious. We will be back as soon as possible. It's close to all the downtown areas of interest, walking distance to pretty much everything.

The old world décor is enough of itself to entice you inside, but when you add to this the very reasonably priced and filling meals, the great beer, the friendly service from the lovely barmaids with their stunning outfits, and the great pianola entertainment, you have more than won me over. What a lovely, iconic old building. I had a... More

Just spend a wonderful weekend in Durango and stayed at the Strater Hotel. It could not have been nicer...friendly folks at the front desk, excellent wait staff in the restaurants and bars, and cheerful housekeeping staff! Are the furnishings old??? Yes, and that is part of the charm. Excellent location that is close to everything...only a few blocks to shopping,... More

I brought my girlfriend to Durango with the intent of proposing to her. I booked us a room at the Strater hotel. I think I made an amazing choice. The hotel was very elegant and well kept. I think the fact that it was decorated for Christmas was the icing on the cake. The staff was great and we had... More

A Victorian charmer! We've stayed at The Strater 4 or 5 times over the years and wouldn't consider other lodging. Awesome location on Main Street with easy access to shops and restaurants. Beautiful hotel and friendly staff. The Strater is antique, classic/standard rooms are probably smaller than the basic chain hotel room. Guests should not book a historic hotel and... More

This hotel was built in 1887 and although it has been modernized since then, it has been done very tastily so that the original architecture, fixtures and furnishings could be preserved. The associated restaurants / pubs are excellent. The personnel from the restaurant hostesses to the front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. Step back into time and enjoy... More
