5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you are looking for comfort and a chance to stretch out and watch the river, this is your hotel. Because it is only bordered by loud traffic on one side, and spaciousness of rooms, the Doubletree is our choice hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a river on the river side of hotel.

Great hotel, great service, great location. Breakfast buffet is wildly overpriced based on what is available, but otherwise a great stay. Service at every part of the hotel was great.

Trip advisor's system is kind of stupid, since it forces me to rate the Spa, which I didn't use, and I have to have 200 characters in the review. I guest that's why I don't do more reviews!

So ignore my comment on the Spa, I didn't use it.

We stayed at the Doubletree Hotel in Durango for one night at the end of September. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the top floor and was very spacious and comfortable. It was great to sit on the balcony, overlooking the river, having a drink or two in the evening - very relaxing.

Room Tip: Definitely go for a room with balcony overlooking the river.

The staff was very friendly! The room overlooked the river and was wonderful to listen to at night. The room was comfortable and clean.
The Internet access was free and worked very well. The cookie on arrival was warm and delicious. I would diffentely come back to this hotel.

The only reason I am giving this an "Average" rating is because they need to update the rooms with refrigerators and microwaves. Otherwise, this is a really nice place to stay, particularly if you manage to get a room with a river view and balcony. I just love all the wood effect in this hotel, it makes it different and classy, even the elevators look superb. The food in the restaurant and bar area was a little pricey, but very good. Considering this is one of the key hotels in a very tourist town, I am surprised that Hilton have taken so long to wake up to the fact this hotel needs a little investment.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a river view, it really is worth it.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Durango on Trip Advisor. Its always great to get feedback from our guests. You'll be interested to learn that we are in the planning stages now for a guest room renovation in our future. It takes a lot of planning, organizing and careful engineering to carry off a renovation of this size and we want to be sure we are covering every base before we start the renovations. We're very excited about the changes we will be making which will include microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. We're sure these enhancements will be appreciated by future guests. We welcome you back to stay with us again soon.
