As San Luis Valley residents my bride and I were searching for a special local place to celebrate our anniversary. From previous experiences (personal and professional) we knew there was only one location in our region that offered both fine dining and beautiful accommodations; The Windsor in Del Norte, Colorado.
This historic gem has been completely remodeled with customer satisfaction in mind. We enjoyed the spacious honeymoon suite with our own private balcony, dining area, jetted tub for two, large flat screen TV (64"?), Wi-Fi and a king-size comfortable bed made our journey memorable.
Service defines The Windsor. The restaurant is indeed the definition of elegant fine dining with wait staff anxious to ensure your experience is nothing less than the absolute best. My bride is a gourmet cook, so I've become somewhat biased and hard to please outside our home. With this in mind, The Windsor delivers. Breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner offer the best cuisine I've experienced anywhere.
Try The Windsor in Del Norte; You will appreciate the genuine effort made by this establishment to make your experience nothing less than the absolute best. Thank you for the lifelong memories; we look forward to our next visit. Oz..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1874, and one of Colorado's oldest hotels, the Windsor has been the heart of the town of Del Norte for nearly 140 years. Originally known as "The Whitsitt House", this “Grand Dame’s” construction started soon after the town was founded in 1871. In the last quarter of the 1800's, Del Norte was a booming and thriving mining and ranching hub. Once on the short list for the capital of Colorado, Del Norte lost by one vote to Denver as state capital. The Windsor Hotel was the focal point of social and commercial activity in San Luis Valley area and remained a regional gathering spot for over a hundred years. Del Norte, remained a prospering and influential town in south western Colorado until the early 1970's. The Windsor Hotel too, began to reflect the area’s decline. By 1993, the hotel was dilapidated and in a state of ruination. A wrecking ball was literally looming over the decaying and lifeless “Victorian Lady” as she awaited her final fate. With amazing foresight and dedication, a local benefactor and his wife, Doctor Raymond & Mrs. Barbra Culp, stepped in to save the Windsor from demolition, literally at the last minute (the hotel lounge, Bistro Barbara, is named after Mrs. Culp in her honor). Over the past 20 years, several phases of reconstruction, restoration and regeneration have produceded an eloquent lodging and dining establishment. Highlights are a "turn-of-the-century" parlor, elegant dining and event rooms, and a living history interpretive area. ... more less
