The positives are many for the Rochester/Leland. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, an authentic southwestern feel, and centrally located within walking distance of all the happenings on main street. This was our third stay here and it was great as usual. We prefer the Leland House side as it is a little more private but both sides are good. The...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Durango and Rochester Hotel and Bar was the perfect place to stay. Staff were all very friendly and helpful and great location to wander into town. We stayed in a suite across the road in the sister property and had a very comfortable if compact room. Breakfast was delicious and it was much appreciated that...

From the warm reception and delicious cookies upon arrival, to the breakfast served by kind and attentive staff, a stay at the Rochester will delight you at every turn. A very clean and well kept property with a bed & breakfast like feel. We booked a room at the Leland House but had our pick of several rooms in the...

It's quaint yet has a lot of charm and character from the old movie decor. The owners were on premises taking care of us and gave every sense that we and our comfort mattered to them. Nancy and her husband made us feel at home. The amenities are very nice considering the building was built in the 1890s. The bathroom...

Arrived after a long drive from Colorado Springs and were welcomed in warmly. Was placed in a suite across the street in their sister property. Lovely gas stove in the living room and lots of nice touches throughout. Breakfasts in the morning were outstanding.

My wife and I booked a standard room for 1 night in Leland House but on arrival they kindly upgraded us to a large King Room in the Rochester (right across the street). We enjoyed so much being right in downtown close to restaurants & shops and having a wonderful breakfast included that we stayed three nights. The hotel is...

My wife and I just stayed here for our first trip to Durango. We stayed in one of the queen suites and it far exceeded our expectations. I can't say enough good things about the staff. Very welcoming, very helpful, extremely nice. The location itself was awesome, centrally located to everything in town, and very close to some nice hikes...

Perfect place for a long weekend in Durango. Room was clean, comfy, & special because it was an historical rather than chain hotel. Breakfast was wonderful!!! The Rochester is in the middle of all the fun downtown. Great trip in a beautiful town.
