“Not a thing wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2011

We spent three nights at the Doubletree in Durango. We had a king room overlooking the river. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the Durango-Silverton train and the historic downtown area of Durango. The hotel and the room was very clean and updated. We ate breakfasts in the restuarant and they were okay but a little over priced compared to other places in town. We ate a lunch at the Animas Cafe, which sits outside next to the river. This was a very nice venue with reasonable pricing and good food. The hotel has an indoor pool and hot tub as well as a business center (computers are too slow though). We found the staff at the Doubletree to be very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend the Doubletree if you are staying in Durango, CO.

Lucked out on this hotel. The rooms are big and if you get a top floor facing the river…sweet. There is a walking trail a few feet from the hotel. They are dog friendly and a 20 acre dog park is just a few minute walk west of the place. A non-smoking king room was $250, but you sometimes you do get what you pay for.

This hotel was the highlight of all the hotels we stayed at on our road trip. The front desk staff were very friendly. They gave us some great cookies at checkin. This hotel is very pet friendly. They provided dog biscuits and a bowl for food or water in the room. We had a room overlooking the Animas River which had a nice balcony with a table and two chairs. The beds were very comfortable. We will stay here again when in Durango.

Was given a great chocolate chip cookie upon check-in, and every morning I stopped by the lobby to get another cookie and cup of coffee before leaving.
The room are well stocked with Wolfgang Puck individual coffee packets for a quick in-room coffee. Also the rooms are well stocked with towels and washcloths, unlike some of the other hotels. The beds are very comfy as well, and who can complain about the view if you get a riverside room, each has a balcony overlooking the Animas river, with a great walking trail going both north and south of the hotel, running alongside the river. The Durango-Silverton train station is also an easy walking distance, as is all the other downtown places. It is no doubt my favorite place to stay in Durango, and I am here at least once a month. The only thing that I can think of that would make it better is an in-room microwave and refridgerator.

We prefer Hilton properties as they have never disappointed us so we chose the Double Tree Durango when planning our vacation to Durango. We were very happy with our city view room and like the location as it is close enough to walk to all of downtown for food and shoping. Our only complaint would be the room cost as we felt it was around $50/night more than it should be compared to similar properties in other parts of the country, but we paid it, and the parking lot was full so I cannot fault them for charging as much as they can. We also ordered room service and thought that the food quality and cost was good and inline with other Hilton properties around the country.

Back for a repeat visit. This time five nights. Incredible. Fantastic. Running out of superlatives :) Very, very impressed with all the staff (every single one was personable and helpful) starting with the General Manger (who is very responsive to email and who made us feel very, very welcome on our return for our delayed 25th anniversary trip redux. Thank you!) Probably the best room service dinner I've had in a long time too.

In short, can't wait to go back. And loved, loved the riverview room this time!

My wife and I have been visiting Durango for over 15 years and this is the first time we’ve stayed in the Doubletree Hotel – we’ve stayed in other hotels as well as vacation homes. We stayed here for three reason and we were not disappointed: 1) this hotel accepts pets, 2) great location, and 3) overall quality of the Hilton chain. We always travel with our two Shelties and this was one of the best places we’ve ever stayed that accepts pets. This hotel is located right next to the Animas River, which is a great place to walk dogs – it seems like every other person walking along the river has a dog. Even better, though, is that this hotel is only about 100 yards away from a huge dog park where you can let your dogs run off leash – the best dog park we’ve ever seen. The staff was very helpful, too. We originally had a street-side view; when I saw the river-side rooms on the ground floor with a sliding glass door opening to the river, the staff accommodated my request to move. This was great for walking our dogs. Our room was very nice and comfortable. This is where we will stay on our next visit.

Room Tip: Great place if you have a dog
