I took my husband here as a complete surprise - we love small mountain towns, and he'd never even heard of it - except that CW McCall lives there. So I packed him into a car, and we drove to this undisclosed location - and he LOVED it. Slam dunk!
This hotel was gorgeous - the most beautiful in Ouray, CO, hands down! Upon arrival, the desk attendant was pleasant, and actually walked with us up to our room. She gave a quick tour, and offered her assistance should we need anything. The accommodations were beautiful, and extremely luxurious & comfortable.
We ate dinner in the grand ballroom, and spent half as much as we have been known to - and ate like kings! I'm serious - we've had some really terrible food that cost twice as much, but our compliments go out to the chef! The food was spectacular, and I wished I could eat more!
The complementary breakfast was fantastic, and the only thing I would add, is some kind of protein - there were hard boiled eggs, and everything else was more carb-rich. There were ample choices, though, and the service was great.
We walked around and took photographs of the really cool antiques & styles all over the hotel. We wandered into the book store downstairs, and made some purchases - they have both local books as well as current best-sellers etc. The town had a lot to offer, and we'll definitely be back! Overall, though, the hotel really made the trip!
