This is the second time I have stayed at the Strater and will happily stay there again. It is a nice historical hotel with local feel and history. The hotel is right on the main historical area strip where there is lots of shopping and great restaurants. The river walk is only 4 blocks away. And it is a 3 minute drive to Ft. Lewis. They have nice restaurants and a bar right there (with local beers). The price was very good and included a nice continental breakfast (better than most). Incredibly quiet rooms, especailly for an historical hotel. Check in is at 4:00 and I called ahead on a Saturday and they accomodated a noon check-in which was extremely appreciated
Business travellers: Not an ideal place for business as the wifi is spotty at best and the desk not very large.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1887, The historic Strater Hotel is a prominent downtown Durango, Colorado landmark located two blocks north of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Cleveland pharmacist, Henry Strater, believed Durango would thrive, and with its prosperity, it would need a grand hotel. The Strater Hotel opened after an expenditure of $70,000 and placement of 376,000 native red bricks and hand-carved sandstone cornices and sills. As the hotel evolved, it became a popular winter retreat for Durango town folk who would close their own homes during the cold months and move into the hotel. Currently, the Strater Hotel houses the world’s largest collection of American Victorian Antiques, many of which decorate its 93 guestrooms including its Louis L’Amour Room—designated Literary Landmark. The Strater Hotel is home to the Durango Melodrama & Vaudeville, Henry Strater Theatre, Diamond Belle Saloon, Mahogany Grille, Strater Catering and Events, and The Office Spiritorium. ... more less
