The Strater Hotel is a nice place to stay for a night but would not want to go back again. Pros: Beautiful old hotel authentically & elegantly decorated. Rooms are clean & staff were pleasant. Cons: Very noisy through the night with garbage truck banging outside our window at 4.00am & various other noise all night. Parking is a hassle with a block walk to the hotel carrying luggage. Restaurant food was just ok & could have been better. Room smelt musty but I guess it is old so it's to be expected. I would not stay there again but that's just my personal choice, it is a lovely old hotel with lots of charm for people who like the old atmosphere. I found the cost a bit steep for the experiance
- 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
