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

Great place to stay to relive historic Durango. Friendly staff, kid friendly, delicious food. A group of us booked about 10 rooms and had a surprise birthday party in a private room at the restaurant located in the hotel, service all around was excellent. Props to our waiter as well. Hotel is centrally located...walking distance to other establishments. Really cool... More

So we got the little room under the stairs. lol We were all concerned that we had the "Harry Potter" room but once you walk beyond the entrance, it opened up into a nice room. We were concerned about the noise issue as well but they have a white noise maker and we slept like babies! This is a awesome... More

This was such a treat and the accommodations were fantastic. The room was large, the decor was fabulous and the beds were very comfortable. Loved being here and hope to stay here again. The history of this place is so interesting. Many of the rooms are dedicated to some individual that made a difference in Durangos history.

We loved staying at the strater hotel. It was beautiful, friendly, had the perfect location, comfortable beds, a great private hot tub, and lots of history. We will be staying there again on our next trip to Durango. My only regret is I didn't buy the book they offered in the lobby about the history of the hotel.

We came to Durango for a fun New Year's Eve getaway and stayed at the Strater for the victorian style and proximity to the train. We were greeted with great service from check in. The hotel itself is beautiful, decorated ceiling to floor in old west antique charm. There are a couple of restaurant and bar choices on site, but... More

If you want to experience the Wild West, this is it. Beautifully restored and maintained 1880's era hotel with saloon and girls dressed in period specific dress and feathers in their hair. Takes you way back in time with all the beautiful antique furniture, trim, wallpaper, carpet, etc. The rooms are fine. For the price, one would expect a higher... More

The ornate woodwork, period furniture and wallpaper in our room were quite nice. The bathroom was adequate, but the plumbing and tile could use some updating. We enjoyed dinner and drinks at the Diamond Belle and New Year's dinner at the Mahogany Grille. A buffet or full breakfast was available in the morning. Coffee and tea were also provided in... More
