Thanks for staying with us. Our front desk team does our best to inform guest about the hotel and Durango as much as possible. We try to minimize check in time as most people want to get to their room and relax. Our front desk team is always available for questions!

W5e This is a birthday trip involving the Durango-Silverton train and stays at 3 historic hotels, The Strater being the first. I’m not sure how the other two might top this gorgeous hotel. Our room was perfect, from the period furniture to the lovely hand-stenciled wallpaper to the beautiful bathroom tile. Everything looked clean and neat, the room was quiet and well-appointed. The lobby is amazing. The entire hotel reflects the love of the ownership, management and employees for maintaining an historic masterpiece and providing a delightful experience for her guests!

Free jacuzzi and bike storage. They put a mini-fridge in the room by request. No coffee maker in room. The coffee at the front desk was not very good.

I love the Strater. My only complaint this time was the thermostat did not work. My room was 77 all night. Also I know they try to keep the rooms authentic. Pre Covid they had coffee available on each level. This time you had to have someone from the front desk give you coffee. They should put a coffee maker in the room until this calms down. Still a great place to stay though. I stay 1-2 times per year. I will be back.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! We are happy to hear that you will be back! We are always trying our best to help accommodate our guests as best as possible even with COVID restrictions in place. Unfortunately, we do not have enough coffee makers to place in every room at this time and are working with an increasingly shrinking budget. Next time you are here please call the front desk at any time and we would be more than happy to bring some coffees up to your room. The front desk is here 24/7 to help you with any problems you might have. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!
