We only had a single night here in our three-week tour of America, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. We had enjoyed the fantastic ride through the valleys (from Rockwood) over the Durango & Silverton Railway and had a short wait for the rooms. But it was well worth the wait, with a terrific ground floor view over the river at the rear of the hotel. At the other end, it was a little trek into town, where we enjoyed a number of shops. This was probably our first look at the real USA - after staying on Broadway (NY), Jersey Ave (Washington) and next top the Magnificent Mile (Chicago).
