While we didn't stay at the Strater, we did dine in the Mahogany Room. We both had the elk and enjoyed it very much. It was very tender and the service very good. We were just a tad over-dressed for the dining room as most folks were dressed in shorts and tee shirts (we dressed up for a night on... More

We've stayed at the Strater several times. The rooms are not luxurious but not bad for a historical hotel. It has a couple of different bars, one with a show on the lower floor as well as a restaurant that is open for dinner. It is right downtown which makes it even better. It can be a little pricey but... More

We visited here for our anniversary and it was a very special place to stay! The room was furnished with walnut antiques with marble tops. It was quiet and a decent coffee service is available every morning in the hall. We had a package that came with a full breakfast and it was very good: perfect eggs. The service is... More

Old school five-star hotel. Absolutely beautiful lobby. Rooms were a little small as you might imagine for a floor plan from late 1800's. Service staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed eating in the Mahagony Room for a delicious breakfast and having a few drinks in The Office bar next to the lobby. We really... More

Stayed in the largest room in the hotel to be able to accommodate all 6 in our party. Two queen beds, and a pull out double for the kids. One VERY small bathroom, however. The hotel is on the pricey side, so staying together made it easier for us to afford. Was surprised to find that we had breakfast vouchers... More

It was a wedding weekend in Durango. This was the first time in this old historic hotel and it was a great stay in a perfect location on the Main Street of the city.The premier room was good size and comfortable. The king size bed was elevated and required a stool step if you are short. The pillows are small... More

We stayed at Strater in August of 2016. We were met with a gun fight (staged) outside the saloon. This place is a lot of fun. Rooms are small but well appointed and very clean. The Strater is located right in town which is very safe and fun to stroll and shop. Food in the saloon was decent. I had... More

Built in 1887 for a chemist from Cleveland, who put his money where his trust was (in the future of Durango), this hotel is the best looking building on Main Ave. The outside is truly impressive but don't go believing the story of Diamond Belle (the bar is named supposedly after here), it's all tourist fare. Our visit did not... More

We stayed 2 nights in one of their Premium rooms (which was reasonably priced)! The room was decorated in true historical style with every detail thought out! If I had any issue it would be in the fact that they didn't impart enough information about all the services offered! Large discount at breakfast in the hotel, room service were two... More
