This Holiday Inn is a newly constructed hotel with construction being completed in February 2013. It is currently the newest, and arguably the nicest, hotel in Durango.
We live in Durango and recommend this Hilton to our friends and family. It is centrally located and being brand new, it is clean and nicely furnished. Amenities include an indoor pool and a fitness facility.
It is located on Hwy 160 heading out of Durango toward Hesperus just a few blocks from downtown. This stretch of the road is usually quieter and less traveled than the hotels on US 550, which is the main drag to head to the ski resort.
The Hotel has an adjoining "sports" bar which is nice to grab a bite without having to get into the car. I have not tried the food yet but my friend described it as average.
If you stay I would suggest requesting a room on the backside of the property which hugs the cliff and is farthest from the road. I would think these rooms would be quieter than the rooms facing the front of the complex.
While staying in Durango don't forget to visit Ski Hesperus, Mesa Verde, and a day trip to Silverton or Telluride is definitely worth the drive. Also, a shorter but beautiful drive to Mancos for breakfast or lunch at the Bakery is worth the time.
