We really enjoyed our stay at the General Palmer Hotel and would thoroughly recommend it. It is located immediately next to the Durango station where the steam train to Silverton leaves each day. This is a real bonus and means you don't need to pay to park to go on the train. As trains only leave and return once a day being next to the station is not a problem.
The whole hotel is very quaint - from the lovely entrance, to the ancient 'elevator', to the beautiful lobby and breakfast room - plus the balcony overlooking the station. Our room was a little cramped - partly because of all the lovely old furniture. It was comfortable, but just a little on the small side for us as we had luggage for a two week touring holiday.
Breakfast very nice and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Homemade cookies in the lobby on arrival - what more could you ask for?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rich with Victorian elegance, the General Palmer Hotel has all the modern comforts that you would expect of a Four Diamond establishment. Named after General William Jackson Palmer who established the hotel in 1898, the General Palmer is the only historical Four Diamond Hotel in Southwestern Colorado. Each room has been hand decorated in the Victorian era with luxurious amenities. It’s the little touches that make the General Palmer unique; freshly baked muffins each morning and Teddy Bears on every bed.

We are located in downtown Durango right next door to the Narrow Gauge Railroad and we are within easy walking distance of many fine dining restaurants. ... more less
