We actually stayed in August 2011 and it was very warm at that time of year. We loved staying at the Strater! This historic hotel is right in the middle of the old downtown and it is easy to walk around and shop. The details of the hotel are beautiful. The staff can even give "tours" explaining some of the hidden storage places in the lobby area - that is fun for the kids to discover. We went to the evening summer melodrama performance and that was a lot of fun. Good place for families. This was a great location, with parking, to explore the other activities in Durango.
