“A Nice Place to Stay in Durango”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Having spent several nights here on two different occasions....this is the best place to stay in Durango if you want a good night's sleep. We had no issues with this property. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and shopping. When we come to Durango in the future...this will be where we stay.

I really love this place. Get a room on the river side and leave your door open to hear that mountain stream slide by. Even the construction nearby doesn't bother... and is probably already complete. You have an Albertsons grocery next door to pick up whatever you forgot. Main Street Durango with all its shops and restaurants is a block away.

Rooms are good-sized so you can stretch out; PURE rooms give you an allergy-free option which is especially good if your spouse is asthmatic. Yes, you should keep the door closed to take advantage of that benefit. We did breakfast each morning where service could definitely use a tune-up. Things were slow and the hotel was full. Or at least for the rooms available. Some may have been out of service to be refreshed, something this hotel has done over the years, one of the things I love about it.

Sleep comfort, always high on my list, is excellent. This is a quiet hotel, even when full. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is superb. Durango is a super spot for a couples' getaway any time of year. The dining options are very good and well-priced, the active types can get out there, walk the great river walk right by the hotel or get active with x-sports. And if you just wanted to take a nap, hey, that's fine, too!

Room Tip: Definitely spring for a room on the river, preferably on the second or third level. Very fine.

Green Features: This place makes environmentally-friendly unnoticeable. The shower in the bath is fine, better than the one at home. The PURE option is super for those needing extra care. You feel pampered, not somehow being good instead of having a good time.

My favorite of all the Doubletrees I have visited. Thank you J.P. for moving my family members so that our balconies were side-by-side! We were here 3 nights and it was so nice to be able to chat back and forth balcony to balcony overlooking the Animas River.

The restaurant and lounge areas are by the river also--what a wonderful atmosphere and just beautiful! Breakfast buffet is way above par for most hotels. Really, I can't say enough good things about this hotel and its staff.

Room Tip: Choose 3rd or 4th floor (4th is the Hilton Honors member floor)

This was my first time to Durango. The hotel is beautiful! Our room overlooked the Animus River and the apple trees were in full bloom. Tessa and Darcy at the front desk were so friendly, helpful and professional. They patiently answered all our questions. I know it is trying interacting with so many people and personalities and these two girls are awesome! Our room was so huge... we loved it. It was nice to come back from a long day of "getting lost" and see a smile at the front desk and a very comfortable bed. There was also a thank you note along with the HHonors water. What a nice touch. We didn't eat on property as we spent most of our time roaming around. The train ride to Silverton is a must for first timers. The mountains are breathtaking. We decided to make another trip later this year to take in some spots that we missed and to try some new ones. The Doubletree is our choice! Thank you to the staff for making this a wonderful trip.

The hotel itself, is very nice with a large, comfortable lobby; plenty of parking; many amenities such as a pool and exercise room; restaurant; convenient location to the train, shops and restaurants. Our room was large, clean and nicely furnished. There is a microwave,refrigerator, flat panel TV, and coffee maker. The bathroom looked recenly remodeled and the towels are nice and thick. The front desk folks were friendly and helpful. Of course, the huge chocolate chip cookies are always yummy. One big negative is that breakfast is not included and the cost of the buffet is $16/pp - pretty hefty even for Durango. When we were there, major road construction was happening right in front of the hotel and it took us 15 minutes to navigate around to the parking lot. They work all night long and as our room faced the road, it was very noisy and kept us awake. However, this is not the fault of the hotel but I wish we'd known about it prior to booking our room.

We do apologize for the noisy construction issues that you endured during your stay with us. We
are almost at the end of the highway construction out front of our hotel. The traffic jams and all have been rough for everyone but soon it will be over. We thank you for your business and welcome you back to stay with us again when the construction is over and peace and quiet will reign

My daughter was graduating from the local Fort Lewis College. After a HORRIBLE travel day (thanks United), we arrived at the Doubletree at almost midnight to our cookies and a very comfy bed. The location of the hotel is perfect next to the scenic Animas River Trail and just a couple blocks from all that's happening downtown Durango.

Nice hotel from the days when they built nice hotels. Well kept, clean, great rooms, with plenty of space and beautiful river views. Professional and friendly staff. Durango has four distinct seasons and each is beautiful in a different way. Try them all.
