This place has character. Staff was wonderful. Room is really comfortable and clean. Other places we stayed in during this trip should spend time here and see what customer service means. I feel at home here. GREAT LOCATION

We booked our room last-minute and got quite a small one with an antique-sized bed which didn't quite accommodate my 6'3" husband. The room was very charming, though, with old fixtures and tiles in the bathroom, antique wallpaper and furniture. We both got a strange vibe from the place and didn't sleep very well - maybe those ghost stories are... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Strater and will happily stay there again. It is a nice historical hotel with local feel and history. The hotel is right on the main historical area strip where there is lots of shopping and great restaurants. The river walk is only 4 blocks away. And it is a 3... More

We just spent a long weekend in Durango and strayed at the Strater. It was an excellent choice, and probably the only place to stay in Durango. The hotel has great atmosphere, and our room was very nice. We had VERY low water pressure in the shower, but that is not totally surprising since we were on the top floor... More

I loved the Strater Hotel. I have stayed there at least a half dozen times, often when we go out to Durango to visit our son who settled there . We had all the wedding guests stay there when he got married and also when we bring others out to visit him use this hotel. The antiques throughout the hotel... More

We'd heard that the Strater Hotel was a beautiful, Victorian Hotel, filled with antique furniture! We were NOT disappointed in that regard! We traveled to Durango to ride on the Silverton Railroad and this was the perfect place to carry out a "turn of the 1900's" theme. The hotel room we were in was small but nicely furnished and the...

We spent 10 days at the Strater Hotel while snow skiing at Purgatory ski resort. The room we were in was an old "brothel" suite with authentic furniture from the 1800's......it was a really cool place with good food, good service and incredible atmosphere......go to Belle Star's Saloon downstairs....it's great!

Don't drive up expecting a doorman to welcome you and take your bags.....you have to shlep them up the stairs yourself. Fortunately there is a tiny elevator to get you upstairs to your room. We stayed two nights, but couldn't get the same room for both nights. The first room was large and comfortable. Since we were taking the train... More

If you are a history buff and love a little pampering this is the hotel to stay in Durango. The guest rooms and the public areas have all been decorated tastefully with Victorian decor, while still having all the modern amenities. The hotel offers a fine breakfast and you can spend an enjoyable evening it one of its dining areas.... More

How often do you have the chance to stay in living history? The hotel and the furnishings are beautiful. A very enjoyable breakfast. Thanks Roy for the posole and scones. Super bellmen and front desk personell. I have stayed at the Strater in the past and enjoyed room 104 1/2. Not available now.
