This is one of the mainstays of Durango and it's fun to stay right in the middle of downtown. We walked all around town and were pleased to have convenient parking. Our room was a King bed with a tiny, but efficient bathroom and under the Manager's Special, Advance pay, it was $92 + 2 free drinks (plus tax). We... More

The place was built in 1867, and has been kept up beautifully - without losing its Old West charm. Our room was filled with delightful old furniture and classic touches throughout, yet managed to be perfectly comfortable as well. And don't miss the Diamond Belle saloon!

Room 108 is on the first floor, next to the Proprietor's quarters. It is an enormous room (500 sq ft?) and every inch is white glove clean and elegantly decorated with 19th century furniture. There are two queen beds and a separate seating area with two chairs and a queen sofa sleeper. The bathroom is quite adequate with a full... More

Came here as part of the Trafalgar Tour I was on. Walking through the front door is like stepping back in time. The bedrooms are the same. My room was a good size without being huge, (no fridge or microwave), and the bed was really comfortable. Good size bathroom. Unfortunately for the staff, the only (tiny) elevator in the hotel...

I would highly recommend the Strater to those who enjoy the character and elegance of a late 1800's hotel. Additionally, the hotel is right in the middle of Main, allowing you to walk everywhere easily. The beds are small, but this is an older hotel so you sacrifice some creature comforts. Rooms are decent size but decorated heavily, you won't... More

We love the Strater Hotel. It is located in downtown Durango and you can walk to the train station, restaurants and other "Colorado" type recreation!!! The hotel is decorated beyond amazing with many different room layouts. There is a hidden hot-tub room available when you sign up at the desk....great place to relax after a day of outdoor adventures. The... More

This is our second stay at the Strater. This time, we got Room 108, which is on the main floor with two beds and a couch that makes into a bed. This room slept all 6 of us comfortably. It is such a great hotel with an excellent location within easy walking distance to the grocery store, tourist shops, dining,... More

I love this place, stay every time I go. They have nice rooms with antiques and wallpaper. Some of the cheaper rooms are small but still a good size. There is only one small elevator and the first flight of stairs is long. The food and bar options are excellent and usually have live music.
