The Strater helped us imagine what Durango was like long ago. The restoration is fantastic. A few modern amenities might have been lost to maintain historic details, like elevator and room sizes as well as luxury bathrooms, but the atmosphere more than makes up for this. The front desk staff was efficient with check-in and out, and when I had an historical question, the manager came over and gave us a tour. The bed was comfy, the bathroom....adequate. Breakfast was okay, and the waiter was helpful in figuring out our options due to weather conditions. The location couldn't be better, within walking distance of everything. We will definitely stay here again.
