“Best place in durango”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed here twice in the last two years and it was perfect both times. I have been up only in the winter around Christmas time and the accomodations were perfect right down to the buffet breakfast and the Christmas tree in the lobby. The staff was always helpful and the location is perfect. If you can get a room facing the Animas River. I will return here for sure.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past four years while visiting my daughter at Ft. Lewis. Here are the pluses: the rooms are quite spacious and clean, the bathrooms are medium size but fairly updated, the beds are great, the bar and restaurant put out very good food (tho sometimes a bit slow) with very good staff, the pool and hot tub are good, the location is walking distance to downtown Durango, the river views are very nice and the city views satisfactory.
Here are the minuses: the furnishings are outdated and worn (though clean), the front desk staff is not friendly, welcoming or helpful, and the room rates are way high during the summer season.
So, I stay here if I'm in the area for a few days during the non-summer season. If I'm just passing through or visiting during the summer I stay at my second choice, the Comfort Inn a few miles down the road.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Durango on Trip Advisor. Your review was concise and accurate. You'll be interested to learn that we are in the planning stages for a renovation. It takes a lot of planning to carry off a renovation of this size and we want to be sure that we are covering all the bases prior to starting renovations. We know that all the wonderful changes we are planning to make are going to greatly enhance our guests stay with us. We're pleased that you have stayed with us often while visiting your daughter who is attending college here. We do offer a discount for parents of Fort Lewis Students, all you have to do is ask for it when making a reservation. We hope that you will stay with us again the next time your travels bring you to Durango.

This is a great hotel located walking distance to downtown Durango and right on the river. The river walk was perfect to exercise our dog. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Went up and had a great time in this hotel. Just off the beaten path it was scenic and very comfortable. Clean rooms and great service added to it. I would highly recommend it. I don't really have anything more to say than that....

This is one of the hotels we stayed at, using our Diamond hhonors points. The entire staff was wonderful and treated us like royalty! The breakfast was DELICIOUS! and we were not charged for our children. Such a wonderful stay and experience. We would definitely recommend you to friends and family. You guys should teach your sister hotel in Breckenridge how to treat Diamond guests! Your hotel is also very beautiful with the creek view in the restaurant and the decor. I hope to be back this summer!

This hotel shows it's age in style and decor. But nothing detracts from the comfort of the stay. Check-in and out were efficient and staff welcoming. The room was clean and nice if a little dated. I had requested a foam pillow the day before (through my Hilton Honors account), and it was waiting for me on the bed when I arrived. I arrived fairly late at night and checked out in the morning, so I didn't get to enjoy many amenities of this hotel. The bed was comfortable, though, and I slept as well as I do when away from home. I stayed on the city side of the hotel and was not bothered by noise. I did have breakfast in the Edgewater grill and would not recommend it. I get it that I was in Durango in March, so there's no fruit that is in season; but the fruit bowl was just terrible. I was able to get good fruit at Denny's so I'm sure they could have done better. The eggs tasted fake and the bacon was paper thin. It was fairly expensive and service was really slow. So, stay at the hotel, but skip the breakfast and go to one of the many great restaurants in Durango.

Room Tip: I don't know that it's worth paying more for a room with a mountain/river view. I stayed on...
