“Convient/Comfortable/Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2009

We stayed here for two nights on our trip through southwest Colorado, alternating between hotels and bed and breakfasts. We used Hilton points so we did not pay for the room. Our room was on the top floor, overlooking the Doubletree parking lot and beyond that, the historic area of Durango. It was very clean and comfortable. We had a small deck/sitting area. The bathroom was immaculate.

The train station for the Durango & Silverton Railroad is walking distance across the street, so if you plan to ride that, this hotel is very convenient. Otherwise, you will pay $7 to park for the train. The hotel is also walking distance to many jeep/hummer/rafting meeting places. You can walk to most of the downtown stores and restaurants, too, which is a plus because it does get crowded in the downtown area and the parking meters have a two-hour limit.

There is a supermarket adjacent to the hotel, which is convenient.

We ate dinner at the hotel one evening and breakfast there both mornings. No complaints - the food was good. There was a breakfast buffet both days or you could order from the menu. The dining area overlooks the river and offers a nice view. The hostess and wait staff were friendly and professional.

We used the Business Center to check our email - no charge for that. The connection was fast.

When checking in and out, they gave us free giant chocolate chip cookies - yummy!

This is really a nice place in a very convenient location. They were fully booked on the nights we stayed, so make reservations in advance.

Pros: Great location right downtown, wonderful Doubletree rooms, view of the river was enjoyable.
Cons: Tour busses, impersonal staff, basement pool, and kind of an awkward setup.

Overall we were satisfied with the Doubletree. The bedroom was large and clean and the bathroom was beautiful. We had booked a room with a balcony city view although when we went inside we discovered that it had no balcony. However, as the city view is more or less a view of the car park we did not bother changing.
We stayed two nights and used the business centre a few times to check emails to and from home. The internet connection was fast.
At the time we stayed decorators were refurbishing the breakfast area and lobby. We think that the breakfast area whilst we were there was actually the ballroom. We felt the breakfast was expensive for what was offered and consequently on the second morning we ate in the town. This was actually more fun as it was pure Durango rather than a characterless hotel restaurant.

My wife and I spent the weekend in Durango. The hotel is an easy walk to the downtown area and the Durango & Silverton train. There is an Albertsons grocery store just across the parking lot from the hotel which we used to take care of last minute toiletries & snacks.

The hotel itself is quite large and very clean. The staff were very courteous & helpful on every occasion. Our room overlooked the Animas River behind the hotel and it was treat to hear the rushing water all night! The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. The shower had great water pressure & plenty of hot water.

We also had the breakfast buffet in the dining room both mornings which was good. All in all, a great place to stay with no complaints. We would definitely stay there again.

We just got back from 2 nights in Durango for Valentines Day weekend. This hotel was in a perfect location. The staff was friendly and helpful. We paid $10 more per night for the Bed and Breakfast package and had breakfast for free each morning in the restaurant. Sunday is a great brunch but you can also order off the menu if you choose. We were within walking distance to almost everything and there is an Albertson's with a starbucks inside right next door. The rooms are nice with large bathrooms and comfy beds. We choose the city view but the river view is nice as well. We will definately be back and will stay here again.

This hotel is great. They drove us up to the spa - 8 miles north of the hotel. They did not have to but the complementary shuttle was free. it is a block to the downtown area, so that is great. Its on the main road from the airport, so its easy to find also. I paid about $95 a night and that was reasonable. Indoor pool is nice. We had to ask them to turn up the heat in the hot tub, but they took care of that quickly. The work out room has brand new treadmills with flat screen tv's on each! They could use flat screen in the room though.

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year's, 2008. The service was good, the food good and our room was lovely and spacious. I think it was newly renovated because everything was so nice. I have a bad back and have a lot of trouble when I'm away from my Tempurpedic, but their bed and linens were very comfortable.

The hotel sits on the Animas River. You will have a view of the river or downtown. Both are nice, but of course the river is special, especially if you are from flat country.

I would describe the lobby decor as gilded age1880's done in 1980. That being said, it was still nice. It's not the Four Seasons, but quite comfortable. The staff was gracious and accomodating.

If I could make one suggestion it would be that they provide doggie bags for when people walk their dogs. A dispenser as you start the trail around the hotel would be very helpful.

By the way, they recommended "Ice Pirates" snowmobiles to us . You have a fairly gentle drive to Molas Pass, about 15 miles from Durango, and is it ever worth it! Eric, Lizzy and their crew take you out in the national forest on groomed trails which is a lot more fun than riding in an open meadow with people going every which way. The first day Mike took us out and the second day Eric; both totally awesome. We were newbies, but they taught us all we needed to know to have a great time. The scenery was wonderful and the snowmobiles are a blast . My husband and daughter LOVED it. My daughter said "forget snowboarding, let's go snowmobiling again"!
