St. Elmo's has more charm and character than most any place we have ever stayed. With its antique furniture and Victorian decor, it almost made us forget what century this is. The rooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. Very clean. Luxurious towels and some of the best shampoo, soap, and lotion samples we have used. The rooms are not air conditioned. However, we were there when the temperature was at a record-breaking high, and were actually quite comfortable with the ceiling fans and open window. There was so much to see and do in Ouray that we did not miss the TV at all; in fact, we welcomed its absence, although there was one available in the parlor downstairs if we had wanted to use it.
The breakfasts each morning were delicious and well-balanced, with fresh fruits, juices, multiple breads and cereals and the best coffee I've had during this 3 week vacation to Colorado! Best of all were the different speciality breakfast entrees that were offered each day. All-in-all, this was a wonderful retreat for us. Although many other places in Ouray looked equally as inviting, we most likely will choose St. Elmo Hotel if we go there again.
