“Wonderfully Updated!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Just departed the Hotel Durant after a brief (one night) stay. Very pleased with our choice. The staff was extremely helpful and personable at check-in and departure; our room was even upgraded without a request.

The rooms, although cozy, are freshly renovated and well-appointed. The beds and linen were comfortable and the environment was contemporary and perfectly suited for Aspen. The bathroom was compact, but very well finished with modern tile and glass. The room did not have a refrigerator or coffee maker; however, the hotel offers a nice continental breakfast with pastries, bagels and coffee.

The hotel is situated in a great location, within an easy walk to downtown Aspen. Parking is a little limited at the hotel, so if you find on-site parking when you check-in, leave your car or risk having to find a spot on the street a few blocks from the hotel.

Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel and would certainly stay again.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The manager was very friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and had Philosophy toiletries. There was a continental breakfast included in the price. The hotel is very close to town - we easily walked anywhere we needed to go. The room was a great price - money well spent!!

My sister and I spent 1 night in Aspen at the Hotel Durant which was within short walking distance to Main St, shopping, and dining areas. Brian, one of the owners, checked us in and was welcoming and friendly. The room was very clean, quiet and the beds were very comfortable. The continental breakfast consisted of delicious bread, pastries, muffins, bagels and fruits. The afternoon chocolate chip cookies were a nice treat

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and I am definitely picky about where I stay. The Durant is like a cross between a Kimpton hotel and a W but with an understated European feel/vibe. My understanding is that the hotel has recently been renovated and it's just lovely. We had a small room with one queen bed and no balcony but honestly, you're never really in your room so we didn't need a lot of space. The linens were clean and everything was spotless. The shower is large and accommodating and there are Philosophy products which are always nice.

We used the hot tub the two nights we were there and were always the only guests in the tub. In fact, the hotel was so quiet I wondered if anyone else was even staying there but there were some guests enjoying the breakfast in the morning so it must just be that quiet!

In terms of location, you really can't beat the Durant. It's on Durant St. and almost seems to be in a neighborhood even though there are other hotels nearby. It's about 2 to 3 blocks to the pedestrian mall and all the shops and restaurants and you really couldn't ask for anything more. We went to Maroon Bells and didn't even bother with our car. We just took the bus from downtown to Aspen Highlands so you really can't beat the Durant in terms of convenience.

We loved Aspen and will definitely return to the Durant. The prices are so much more reasonable than other hotels and yet you still feel like you're having a luxury experience. I highly highly recommend.

Room Tip: If you want to spend more time outside you might want to upgrade to a room with a balcony but if you...

Another perfect stay! I have been staying at this hotel for the last 6 years and absolutely love it! It was recently remodeled and is even more wonderful. It's locally owed and operated so they take a personal interest in ensuring your needs are met. Great location, just a few blocks from downtown. I highly recommend this hotel!

We booked a room at Hotel Durant by default as few accommodations in Aspen had availability in our price range and our dates. This proved to be a fortunate circumstance for us as we could not have been more pleased with the experience, especially at the price point offered. Apparently, the rooms were recently renovated--and one can tell! Very clean, beautiful bathroom and very well appointed and comfortable lounge area in the lobby. Great to have free, unlimited wifi and we even enjoyed the hot tub. Would definitely book again and highly recommend Hotel Durant for clean, modern, cozy and intimate accommodations.

Perfect stay again. We come back every year for the past 7 years. We are usually at least 4 people and couldn't be happier. Since they completely remodeled it last year its even more wonderful. Great taste and we feel right at home. Perfect location in town and the staff is wonderful.
