4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed 2 nights here in a King room. The bed was very comfortable & the bathroom nice size. The only thing that wasn't good was that it sits right next to the Durango-Silverton train station so the very loud train whistle woke us up early & often in the mornings. On the other hand, it was a great downtown... More

Don't stay at any of the plain-jane chain hotels if you're visiting Durango. The Strater has charm and personality! Our 3 kids said this was by far the best hotel they stayed in during our one-week Southwest US vacation. They loved the old-west feel, the maze of hallways, the "artifacts" in the room. PROS: Staff were friendly. Mahogany Room buffet... More

Loved this old place. Stately hotel right downtown.Beautiful lobby. Really liked the antiques throughout and those in the room. We were there for one night in late April. Had a "live like a local" special. Very nice price for queen with sitting area and free breakfast. Breakfast was excellent buffet style. Filled up before heading to Mesa Verde. If there... More

Great service, by the front desk and at the restaurant, room was small but quaint, TV and remote worked fine, free Wi-Fi w/ a strong signal. No continental breakfast ($5 charge) and to my knowledge there is no gym on the property (all hotels should have modernized gyms nowadays).

I stayed at the hotel for the night last month. I am pretty much the type of person that the Strater would appeal to I think. I love the history and pretty much lapped it up. I was very happy with my room, the service offered and the experience of going to The Diamond Belle. I'm sure that there must... More

I love historic hotels, and this was as good as any I've stayed in. We went in the off-season, (just before the busy season started), and got an incredible deal on a room. We only had the basic room, but found it to be plenty big enough, plenty comfortable enough, and plenty close to just about everything you would want... More

We loved our stay in this Historic hotel. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the location is fantastic. Everyone on staff is helpful and friendly. The bar is definitely a happening place in the evenings! We will definitely be back again!

The Strater is a wonderful historic hotel. The building is interesting, with back stairways and old touches. The three different restaurants are each lively and quite inviting. My room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and I would stay her again.
