I knew nothing about Durango when I booked to go there, but am glad I did...a beautiful river, some great local attractions in close proximity and some really good brew pubs.
Asking a friend where to stay, he said that I should stay at the General Palmer, an original hotel in the middle of town.
It was a great choice...excellent parking, a short walk to restaurants, shopping and pubs and a different place to stay.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful making the stay great fun...and I slept like a hibernating bear in a huge, comfortable bed!
