I grew up in Durango, but moved away years ago. My family and I return to Durango to visit family about 3 times a year. Over the years, we have stayed just about every decent place in town (believe me, that makes for a lot of testing...) A few years ago, we stayed at the BW Rio Grande for the first time, and now we never stay anywhere else. It is definitely our home away from home in Durango! Durango isn't a cheap place to visit, as I'm sure you've discovered by now if you're shopping for a hotel. Trust me, I get it!! However, the BW Rio Grande delivers a lot of value-added services that help make me feel a lot better about the nightly rate. Their breakfast is first rate, with fresh scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, fresh juices and cereals, and you can even make your own waffles. Every night there is an open bar next to the pool where adults can get two free drinks. Believe me, at the end of a busy day in Durango, that happy hour is a huge plus for me! The kids enjoy the pool and I enjoy a drink, while still keeping a close eye on them. Everyone wins! This stay, we tried something new. We upgraded to the King Suite. LOVED IT!! So much space to spread out, the bathroom area was huge, there was a comfortable sitting area, and even an outside patio. Even with a roll-away bed for my youngest and the sofa bed open for my oldest, we had ample space. I would definitely recommend this upgrade for families of more than 3. Worth every penny!! One of the best things about the BW Rio Grande is it's downtown location. You can easily walk to the downtown Durango shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Downtown Durango is one of the sights people come to Durango for, so having it an easy walk away just makes sense. Give this place a try!
