The Rochester is quintessential Durango with the added benefit of modern amenities and flawless service. I live about ten miles outside Durango and was "in town" to see my friend play a night at the Henry Strater Theater, so decided to get a room at the Rochester instead of driving home. It was a great decision. The rooms are "old-style," but the beds are wonderfully updated (i.e. Hilton Heavenly Bed), the bathroom is stocked with Aveda products, and they have every TV channel you could possibly think of. My bag was carried to the room by the owner (Kirk), himself and he gave me a full description of what would be going on in the hotel that night and in the morning. Breakfast was amazing, to say the least. the coffee was wonderful, followed by a homemade breakfast sandwich served to my table. They also had homemade breads, fresh fruit and cereals available, too. I felt like one of the family. My husband and I also spent our anniversary night at the Rochester a couple of Januarys ago and it was great then, too. We always recommend The Rochester to friends and business people visiting Durango. As a side note, Kirk is a huge supporter of community events and is very well-thought-of by us locals - a good thing for out-of-town guests to know.
