I only stayed for one night but thought the service was great. The room was definitely dated but thats what its like in a 100+ year old hotel. It was somewhat creepy because the hallways are pretty dark filled with antique furniture and memoribilia. But there is a 12-ft Santa Claus on the second floor that really spooked me!! I... More

A really nice old hotel with a charm all its own. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Be aware of the stairs however if you have heavy bags. This is a genuine old style western hotel and the stairs are steep.

I love staying in old, historic hotels. The Delaware is definitely one of them, full of antiques. Rooms are fairly comfortable and as long as it doesn't face Harrison Street, it's quiet. My only complaint is that the lighting in the room was dim.

We read about this hotel and walked in without a reservation. The clerk helped us find a great rate (AARP.) It was quaint, historical, quiet, comfortable, and friendly. The staff gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to see. Even the housekeeping staff took the time to speak with us and give us some history. Great rates and... More

I wanted to be in town and in something historic instead of the same chain hotels . I wanted to remember where I stayed and how can you tell one Comfort Inn from another . This hotel is old and eclectic. Don't expect a white or beige sterile hospital look. The rooms are warm looking and filled with vintage items... More

My family of four drove into Leadville wanting to experience something a little different than the Super 8 on the south side of town. Along the main street we spotted the Delaware Hotel and decided to check it out. They had room for us, and I mean ROOM. We got a suite (Number 5) with two huge bedrooms with a... More

Have stayed here twice over the years when visiting family and enjoyed both times. The hotel dates back to the heady days when Leadville was a hard core mining town. The rooms are smallish with furniture to match the theme. Lots of antiques lining the halls that is for sale. I am glad I couldn't fit anymore into the car!... More

As mentioned by many reviewers, this hotel is wonderful, but not for everyone. What it is is a lovely old building, with an interior completely redone in the 1990's (guessing) and ready for another re-do, but still very quirky and comfortable. I was actually surprised by the obvious thought for comfort that had gone into my room's furnishings, and despite... More

We enjoyed the Delaware but it is definitely not automatically suited to everyone. It is an old immensely characterful building and as such makes a welcome change from a modern motel. The whole place is stuffed full of antiques and collectibles, many for sale, and there is attached a large gift shop which you can access form inside the hotel,... More

We came to the Delaware because it is a historic hotel, built in 1886. Unfortunately, it has some of the drawbacks of a hotel of that age. To begin, the rooms are small--more European than American in feel. The floors are creaky and the rooms are threadbare. The door frames and window sills could tell some tales, judging by the... More
