“Very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We needed a room with a refrigerator and got a small apartment with a small kitchen. It was wonderful for our needs and we will definitely go back again. The Leland House is also right in town close to all the shopping and restaurants. It was clean, and the bed was comfortable.

Room Tip: You are in town, so don't expect a good view.

We had a wonderful stay at the Leland House and Rochester Hotel. The places are charming and the staff could not be more friendly and accommodating! There were 10 of us on a hiking trip so we occupied 5 rooms--2at the Leland House and three in the Rochester Hotel.

Room Tip: The suites in the Leland House are actually apartments with kitchen accommodations if you wish. Howe...

We brought our 14 yellow lab with us to stay in Durango. We all enjoyed Casita #11 a small detached place off the Leland House. The outside wall backs up to the Cypress Cafe so if you like jazz, you're in luck, the music will lull you to sleep but if you don't, bring earplugs. The reservationist knew we had our dog (they only have a set number of dog-friendly rooms) and charged us but every time we went to the front desk they acted surprised. They repeatedly reminded us that the maid was surprised to see our dog and was terrified of them. I wanted to say to them, you didn't forget to charge us why did you forget to let the maid know?
The front desk staff seemed a little persnickety to me, stingily giving us wine glasses and plates for a picnic. Then I read a sign in the dining area that says guests are not allowed to enjoy their own wine in the rooms. Seems at odds with the relaxed character of Durango.
The breakfasts are a highlight and the morning servers. A healthy nutritious hot meal is prepared every morning if you want it. And we did, we came to ride our bikes and those breakfasts got us over the hills around Durango.
Back to our room, the bedroom was fine, the sitting room set up odd and the furniture uncomfortable and there was no dresser to unpack our clothes! We were there 3 nights and just had to spread our clothes out on the extra bed. The chair for the miniature vintage desk was a tiny rickety thing with wicker seat that lacerates your hamstrings if you sit in it more than 5 minutes. I'm hoping the hotel will read this review and make furniture upgrades to that room as that seems sub-standard for the price.
Parking is convenient, especially for room 11 - off the alley. We walked through the Leland House to go to breakfast in the mornings and those rooms look small and stuffy. Which reminds me, there is a note on the thermostat in #11 that says not to touch it or let it go under 71 degrees without notifying the front desk. Ok, if I want to sleep in an ice box at night, why can't I? It was in the 90's when we were there. When I stay in a hotel, I do like to be treated as a guest, not as a possible threat around every corner.

Room Tip: Room 11 is larger than the ones we saw in the Leland House.

We read and welcome all feedback regarding our property and take every comment seriously. Thank you for your comments regarding your room – we already plan on making some changes. I’m sorry our front desk staff seemed persnickety to you. Our mission is to welcome all guests in as friends and locals and assist in making their stay as comfortable as possible.
Because of our liquor license we cannot allow any outside alcohol on the property (Leland House and Rochester Hotel). However since we do have a small bar we are able to offer a variety of wines and liquors that can be purchased and consumed in the guest rooms and in our courtyard. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed our lovely breakfast and the cruiser bikes. We encourage our guests to communicate with us during their stay so we can immediately attend to any issue that might arise in order to make the experience a pleasant one. If you would like to discuss your stay with us further I would be happy to talk with you directly.

We spent 3 nights at the Leland House recently. Absolutely top notch. Within easy walking distance of the steam train depot and all of the historic downtown area. Every staff member was gracious, friendly, and went out of their way to assure we had everything we needed. Always fresh, baked in house, cookies out to munch on. Morning breakfasts were delicious. Cooked to order, a different hot entree each day. Also an assortment of fresh baked goods and fresh cut fruits every morning, all served with smiles and friendly conversation. Comfortable beds, sparkling clean rooms, and beautifully decorated. Lovely grassy courtyard, with huge shade trees, pleasant place to sit and read or relax. Live music two out of the three nights we were there, also in the courtyard.

We stay at the Rochester and Leeland House many times over the years while our daughter was attending College at Fort Lewis! This was our first return in two years as we needed a weekend adventure.

I am always worried about how we will be received on the Motorbike. Nothing to worry about, gentleman who acted as a porter was helpful in showing me the parking lot out back for the Leeland House, had no problem with me putting the bike on the Sidewalk below the back entrance near our room while I unloaded the bike. Then showed up the spot where most the motorbikes end up parked under the tree in the hard packed area.

Service, breakfast and staff was great as always!!! Won't be two years before we return again! Absolutely a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: The suites have cooking appliances in them so you can cook if you wish too

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Leland House while passing through Durango for the night. Every part of our experience while there was enjoyable from check-in to check-out. The room was tidy and well decorated with a welcoming feel throughout. The breakfast was delicious especialy, the homemade scones and muffins. We will be back!

I absolutely LOVE this place and will stay here every time whether it is for business or pleasure. The rooms are so inviting and comfortable, the breakfasts are hands down amazing and the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. They have bands and an open bar in their garden, they have beach cruisers you can ride around town on. You are doing yourself a disservice if you don't stay here.
