The first thing to love about the Armstrong Hotel in Fort Collins, is Oreo Armstrong, the big and happy cat who owns the place! He's super friendly and welcoming. After Oreo, everything else is just as amazing. The rooms have a fun mod style. The rest of the hotel has a beautifully historic sytle, and down below, there is a... More

Thank you for your wonderful review Amy! We are so glad that you enjoy our hotel, our Jazz Lounge, and Oreo. Oreo relishes all of the attention from all of our guests. We (Oreo included) hope to see you again soon! More

Staff seemed put out and unenthused. They did not have white noise machines as promised in the guest amenities. Was hard even to watch TV over the roar coming from the streets on both sides of the hotel. I called 3 times about something I left in the room - left email messages - never heard from them. Lobby was... More

The location of the hotel is convenient ... in the middle of old town and not far from the CSU campus. Great to have this piece of Fort Collins history restored. Our suite was a comfortable size, the bed super comfy but the bathroom was small. Given its location, it can be noisy outside. You can turn on the AC... More

We have stayed at this historic property several tijes and like the location. Downtown Ft Collins is as good as it gets for the restaurants and street scene. The Armstrong keeps up with the rooms we like and keep improving.

I started staying at the Armstrong Hotel when it was still the Mountain Empire Hotel; It is the only hotel I would consider staying at in Fort Collins. It is right in the heart of Old Town near many great shops and restaurants. The Armstrong is a historic building; the only drawback is the noisy in room air conditioners. We... More

Wow, many thanks to you David! It has been a while since the hotel changed owners and names. We thank you for your great review and for your continued support. We have begun upgrading our air conditioning units to Mitsubishi Mini-split heat and air units and hope to have all 45 of our guest rooms converted by this winter. We... More

The Armstrong is in a great location and includes plenty of parking behind hotel and with close overflow lot. The rooms were spotless, but a little out of proportion -- the bedrooms were smaller and the bathroom was huge. We stayed in a two room suite and there were no mirrors other than in the bathroom, which doesn't work great... More

Love Ft. Collins overall walk-ability. The Armstrong is soooo close to so many great restaurants, shops and the Old Square many times offering live music and entertainment. The rooms are very nice, although a little dark. But, it is an historic venue, so natural lighting is a bit of a challenge.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Our location in downtown is very nice; its hard to imagine that in 1923 we were the southern most edge of town. We are aware that the lighting is a bit of a challenge. When we see you again, should you get a dimmer room, just let the front desk agents know... More

We were visiting Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo and Fort Collins seemed like a good place to stay, being only a 40 minute drive away from Cheyenne and a 1.5 hour drive from Denver international airport, where we had flown in. Fort Collins itself is a lovely town and The Armstrong hotel is right in the heart of it on S... More
