If you are going to stay in a hotel in Durango, it must be this one. I think the Stanley in Estes Park now has a tie for first place for me for favorite hotels. The building is incredible and very well maintained, even the rooms have the character and charm of the exterior. It is in the best location downtown, only a short walk to the restaurants and shops. The adjoining pubs are really neat as well. Everything was clean and comfortable and way worth the few extra bucks to not be in a big, boring chain (which are all located somewhat outside of town anyway). Great for a long weekend and not far to Mesa Verde national park. We really enjoyed Oscar's for breakfast per front desk recommendation, Carver's brewery (great beer garden), and the El Moro tavern within a short walk.
