Tamarron vs. Doubletree?

Traveling with my 12 year old daugther. Thinking about these two properties for a trip in June? Any help would be appreciated

We have not stayed at Tamarron, but it does look nice. It is located about 15 miles north of town, so if you want to visit downtown Durango, you will have a drive. It is more of a resort/condo type place.

When we stay in Durango, always have stayed at the Doubletree. Close to shops, restaurants, the train and if you get a riverside room, a great view of the Animas River. They have a nice indoor pool, the restaurant was very good and the rooms were wonderful.

There is a bike/walk trail along the river right behind the hotel too.

Hope this helps some.

You definitely want to stay at the Doubletree. Tamarron is gorgeous, but a ways from town..not much to do. Doubletree is right on the Animas..river trail, close to town for all the restaurants, train and shopping. Much for fun for a 12 yar old. I lived in Durango for 3 years very close to the Doubletree with kids and it is a better choice. You can visit the Durango MOuntain resort (30 minutes) and enjoy alpine slide, bungee, etc. for a day.
