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... More

We spent a couple of nights in a large family room which our friend described as the nicest hotel room he had ever stayed in. Lovely furniture and decoration. There were 4 adults and the room was large enough that we weren't falling over each other. We had a delicious breakfast (as staying guests we were offered omelets in addition... More

This beautiful hotel is right in the heart of downtown Durango. It is very convenient for walking to shops and restaurants. However we were at the back of the hotel. While it was fun to see the train from our window it was not fun to be awakened from our sleep early in the morning by the train whistle. Also... More

We found the Strater to be one of the most beautiful, authentic and historic hotels we have ever had the pleasure to visit. We stayed in King Room 401, which had windows facing out on two sides with beautiful mountain views. Allegedly, a ghost cat has been known to visit the room and maybe that's what we heard rattling the... More

Historical hotels can be very iffy, but this one is a class act! When you first walk in you can see the history in the furnishings. The staff was top notch as well. The room I stayed in was decorated to period and they didn't miss a thing. Lovely. I was told each room is different in design and history.... More

First off-----We loved the Strater! Great vintage furniture & decor. Awesome bar (Diamond Belle) and restaurant (Mahogany) ---great food & ambiance. Staff is very helpful and extends themselves graciously. Our room had a queen sized bed & a single----while the rooms were well appointed, the mattresses & linens could use an upgrade. We're a little spoiled with the "Heavenly Beds"... More

More than a bit pricey (AARP "Discounted" to $190) on Sunday night, but..... Beautiful old hotel that is well cared for. Comfy bar scene, and pretty good buffet breakfast in morning. Nice mix of old and new furnishings and furniture. A bit noisy, as old hotels tend to be. This hotel is very popular in high tourist summer season, being... More

We stayed one night at The Strater and totally enjoyed our stay. Being an old hotel we didn't expect the rooms to be large, but were pleasantly surprised to find ours more than adequate especially for a one night stay. Decor in the room and throughout the hotel was well executed adding to the atmosphere. Parking across the street isn't... More
