We really splurged to stay here for my birthday, but you only live once, right? The location was perfect - walking distance into town AND right on the Animas River Trail. We were doing a lot of walking and did take the bus up to Silverton and the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad back to Durango - highly recommend doing it this way - 3-1/2 hrs. is a long train trip. The bus affords other views and the driver describes scenery all the way up. It only take 1-1/2 hours which gives you more time in Silverton. We also swam daily at the hotel and used the hot tub which was great. Of course I have to mention the chocolate chip cookies - they gave me 2 more on my birthday. The room was great - very roomy, nice linens, big bathroom. I asked for a refrigerator and they brought one right up at no expense - we like to keep our waters and sodas cold. Overall just a wonderful trip - the hotel certainly added to it.
