I stayed two nights for business in an upstairs King room. Lots of space, comfortable bed, and a to die for breakfast. The building itself is attractive with a pleasant courtyard. The movie posters are fun. The front desk staff and the breakfast crew simply could not have been nicer. I would return in a heartbeat. Thanks for a nice... More

We spent our honeymoon in Durango and returned this year for our 29th anniversary. We were not able to stay at the original hotel and stayed at the Rochester instead. What a wonderful surprise. The staff and s friendly and very attentive. On the first night the maintenance man even came in to fix a problem with the AC. The... More

I have stayed in two other Durango hotels, and this is my favorite so far! Cute inside and out. Their breakfast is really good. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Rooms have nice decor. I loved sitting outside for breakfast or later in the day in the courtyard under the big maple tree. Very pleased and hope to return!

This hotel has become our new favorite for Durango, Colorado! We stayed one night in early June. Rich with history and excellent location with the train station, restaurants and bars just steps away. We had a main floor room with a small kitchen and living area. The bed was comfortable with a lovely little on-suite bathroom. Our son was with... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Kirk the owner, does a great job of getting the right people working there! The rooms are very comfortable, relaxing and spotless clean. We were in one of the dog friendly rooms just off the courtyard and Buddy felt just as relaxed... More

I've stayed three times now at the Rochester Hotel and Leland House and I continue to be impressed by the quality of service and experience. The rooms are cute and have charming western touches. The breakfast is excellent. During the summer they do a music series with proceeds going to local charity.

We enjoyed our room and stay at the Rochester hotel. I love old building and the history. Bed was comfortable, air conditioning was sufficient, and I enjoyed having a ceiling fan above the bed. Everyone was nice and helpful. A bit pricey for what you get, but a very nice stay.

This charming, intimate hotel located in the heart of Durango was a delightful stay. Included was breakfast service - not a buffet, but real made to order service. Owner Kirk was always on hand to help make everything perfect. Kirk and his mother renovated a old building at that location and made it into a charming hotel. A full bar... More

What a relief to find the Rochester after a long, grimy drive from Arizona. Delightful staff and a fantastic welcome, plus a cosy period family suite with modern conveniences right downtown but on a quiet street - everyone slept like logs. We will definitely be back for more cocktails in the garden.
