Which accomodations are walking distance to the stores, etc?

I can't tell from the listings. Are any of the better more popular properties listed within walking distance to the town, restaurants as well as the springs? Some appear to be closer to one or the other but not all.

Ouray Chalet Inn, Hot Springs Inn, Box Canyon Lodge.


Springville, Utah

Things in Ouray are all pretty close together -- relatively! From the pool on the north end of town to where the Million Dollar Highway starts on the south end is only about a mile.

Box Canyon is the farthest one from the pool, but just a short walk up to downtown, 90 percent of the restaurants and shops are. We'd highly recommend this one. It has four spring-fed hot tubs, so it's kind of like getting all the fun of the city pool without having to drive to the pool itself and pay to get in

On your list the Hot Springs Inn is the closest thing to the public hot springs pool. It's probably just a couple of blocks from the pool and less than half a mile from the center of downtown -- where most of the restaurants and stores are. We've never stayed here and can't say anything about it either way.

I think only Box Canyon, the city and the Wiesbaden have rights to use the springs. The Wiesbaden is nice, but more of a B&B style with some shared restrooms and such. They do have spa services on site, which I don't think Box Canyon offers. We like Box Canyon a lot, and sometimes also stay across the street at the Ouray Victorian as well.

Keep in mind, too that starting from the south end of town, everything is pretty much downhill. After an afternoon of soaking in the pool, it can be a pretty good hike back uphill to downtown, especially if you're not used to the 7800 foot elevation.
