This historic hotel is great! It is right downtown near all the local activities. The staff is friendly and professional. The rooms are updated while still maintaining a historical flavor and very clean. A self serve breakfast is included with the room and it is a great way to start your day. I stayed in the "Walker" room on the top floor. It faced the main street but was quiet. The climb up to the fourth floor will leave you a little winded but there is an elevator if you prefer to ride. Try the Posole -- it is really good and rumored to be a cure for a hangover.
- 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
