I always love to stay at old hotels and the Strater Hotel did not disappoint. History is important to me and the hotel does an excellent job bringing the past to life, especially with the little description in each room of historic people who stayed in the room. The furniture is beautiful and it's fun to envision what it used to look like long ago. It's old so there won't be all the creature comforts we are used to, but it's worth it.

I was very impressed with this motel. It was very clean, easy to check in and out, and had a pretty good free breakfast. It is close to the mall, but not really within walking distance of very many eating establishments.

The room was great, but a bit noisy due to thin walls, tons of spring breakers, and traffic nearby.
That being said, the staff were out of this world. We got into town kind of early and we're tired. They let us check in early to rest.
Breakfasts were good, but need gluten free bread and a lactose free option got milk.
The indoor pool was awesome and clean, but the hot tub had a bit of grime. The grit bubbles are the stuff of nightmares.
The staff again were amazing at the end! Last day at checkout I asked to stay a bit longer because my husband was feeling very ill, and they were kind enough to oblige! Really can't say enough great things about the staff.

"An upscale hotel right on the rivers in 'High Skii"
The Doubletree in Durango has undergone several avatars over the years. It started off as a Red Lion Hotel. Despite its age, the facilities have been updated and the stay there was very pleasant. The staff is very good and willing to go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The rooms are large and comfortable; with a small refrigerator and the rest of the expected amenities. The Animus River runs right by the back doors. Someone who wanted to fish could step out and do so. There are walking trails adjacent and yet, the hotel is right next to the historic downtown and the famous narrow gage railroad. Even during the high skiing season the rates are modest. Pergatory Ski facilities are 20 minutes away.

The largest town in southwest Colorado, Durango features a downtown that is a Nationally Registered Historic District and a rail line--the scenic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad--that has been continuously active for over 125 years. The self-proclaimed Napa Valley of Beer town is also considered ideal for brewing beer with its readily available first-use water and four microbreweries.
