The rooms are old fashioned but clean and fully in keeping with the historic hotel. When we arrived there was a personalised welcome card and small complimentary box of chocolates on the pillow which was a lovely touch. Also in the room was a journal for guests to write in their experience of the hotel. We had an excellently situated room. My husband is a steam railway enthusiast and the train ran right past our window. The only downside was the breakfast. There was very little choice, 2 cereals, fruit bowl, toast, scrambled eggs, southern stew and sweet pastries. We stayed 4 nights and every breakfast was the same with no change at all. I know it is complimentary but a little variety would have been nice. Some people took one look and went across the street to pay for breakfast.
- 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
