We have friends that highly recommended the Strater Hotel. It was a really nice hotel. This hotel has a lot of history and we were walking around the lobby looking at everyhting when the bellman came up and asked us if we wanted a tour. He showed us hidden compartments and showed us the room where Loius Lamore wrote many of his books and gave us the history behind the room and why he stayed there. It was really interesting to get an inside look. We ate lunch at the Diamond Belle Saloon with three children and they sat us upstairs which was just perfect and we had two wonderful waitressed that were dressed in costume and really great with the kids. Sunday night my husband and I went to the saloon for a drink and to listen to the music, we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the entertainment.
The room was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. If I ever get back to Durango i would not hesitate to stay here again. The room rate includes breakfast and you get to eat it in the Mahogany Dining Room.
Out whole trip to this part of Colorado was just fabulous.
