My wife and I have stayed here prior to the remodel and found this gem of a hotel to be perfect. With the new remodel, its even better! I highly recommend this lovely hotel to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic hotel within walking distance of downtown.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Durant about a month ago (first week of March, 2014) for a ski vacation in Aspen. We were absolutely thrilled with the renovation of the hotel that just completed this past Nov/Dec. The hotel is stylish and cozy...it has a European feel to it...almost like a much more expensive boutique hotel for a lot less money. The rooms are lovely! The beds, comforters and linens are new and very comfortable. The water pressure is great in the shower...and welcome after a day of skiing. We stayed for a week and while the rooms are not extraordinarily large, they are more than adequate for the price. The owner and staff could not be nicer and more accomodating....they really made us feel welcome. The continental breakfast and afternoon cookies, wine and cheese are really a nice touch...and the coffee was great! The lobby is very pretty and a nice social gathering place in front of the fireplace. We love Colorado in the summertime, too, and are looking forward to staying at our new favorite, affordable, and lovely hotel in Aspen.

Room Tip: Ground/basement level floors don't have as much light but are priced appropriately lower.

LOCATION
Good location: located in the heart of downtown Aspen, just steps from a bus stop where you can catch the free shuttle that takes you to the other 3 mountains of Aspen Snowmass resort (Buttermilk, Highlands and Snowmass). And if you want to ski in Aspen, Lift One is 5 minutes on foot and the gondola is a 6-minute walk from the hotel.

ROOM
We booked a lodge room (there are 4 types: standard, lodge, balcony and fireplace suite) and was medium-large with a king bed, lcd tv, refrigerator and a basic en-suite bathroom. No safe box. Extremely clean. Very comfortable. Free wifi. Good control of room temperature. No frills. No noise. The hotel has been refurbished in Dec2013 and everything is brand new. I'm not sure how well the hotel will age but at the moment the hotel is spectacular.

While staying at the hotel we saw the different kind of rooms and I would recommend booking the lodge one. Standard rooms are located on the lobby level (=noise), balcony rooms have no terrific views and fireplace suite would be just for a special occasion and, in this case, I would look at some other options before.

COMMON AREAS/ HOTEL AMENITIES
Small hot tub on the outside.
Fireplace in the lobby where you can have complimentary wine, cheese, crackers and cookies between 4-6pm every day.
Complimentary breakfast.
Free wifi.
No on-site restaurant (or room service) but many different options nearby.

RECEPTION
The attention at front desk is professional and very friendly at all times. Complimentary luggage store.

OVERALL
Perfect location and best value-for-money among mid-range – low luxury hotels in the town centre. I would definitely stay again.

What a pleasant surprise to walk in and notice the nice updates made at the hotel. The lobby area is perfect for breakfast and apres ski wine and cheese each evening. We had a balcony room with king bed that overlooked Aspen mountain. The bathroom had a very nice shower that was more spacious too. We stay here each year and have enjoyed the closeness to downtown Aspen with all the great shops and restaurants. The staff at the Durant could not be nicer and offered their insights to activities and restaurants in the area. We are already looking forward to next year!

Room Tip: Make sure to bring your swimsuit for the nice hot tub!

My friends and I have been staying at this hotel the same week each year for the past five years. This last visit during the week right before Christmas was made even better with the surprise of a newly renovated hotel. They did an amazing job updating and modernizing the place! Outside, a brand new deck and Jacuzzi (which we were the first to use). Inside, the contemporary, but still very comfortable furnishings in the lobby lounge and breakfast areas kept me inside two days out of eight just reading and hanging out. The bedrooms are fitted with both tasteful and practical touches. Adding storage under the super cozy beds was genius!!

The renovations are great, but what makes this a home away from home is the attitude of the staff. Brian and everyone there are amazing; warm, welcoming, and always willing to go out of their way to help. The continental breakfast and wine and cheese hour during winter a plus!

Add to this the value and location and this hotel can't be beat! I will continue to go back when visiting Aspen with friends.

Please note that the photos of the hotel on the date of this review are pre-renovation and don't do the place justice any longer. Hopefully they will update them soon!

Room Tip: Loved my upstairs room with a balcony and view of the mountains!

I stayed here for 2 nights during Christmas week. WHAT A LOVELY SURPRISE! A last minute oasis for a much needed rest. In the heart of town, walk to everything! The room was ABSOLUTE perfection. I had a view of the mountains from my balcony. My room was exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable. The shower was perfect and clean as a whistle. The linens are high quality, as well as the pillows. I did NOT want to leave!
Everyone was welcoming and the continental breakfast was perfect with many choices.
Oh, yeah...there is a fireplace in the lobby with a crackling fire, wine in the afternoons and a hot tub (which I sadly did not partake of)...great place will definitely GO BACK SOON!

Seven months before our trip we booked, through Expedia, a room with two double beds at the Hotel Durant. In the month before we went, we re-visited the booking and added a second room so that we all had our own bed. Just as well we did, as on arrival we found we had been allocated a King Bed in one room and a queen room in another, far from what was originally bought. I appreciate that the allocation is at the Hotels discretion, but why would we buy a room with two double beds? Simple, we had 2 adults and two small children and 1 adult planned with i child in each. The hotel was recently fully renovated and is really suited for couples, not children. The phones were like a prop on a set, not connected. The Hotel suited our needs and was comfortable et cetera with a basic free breakfast and a small spa on the deck. The only tip I would make would be to confirm the bedding configuration required and make it a condition of the booking, then ask for a confirmation to be sent to you. At about $300 per night, per room, they could have at least informed us what allocation had been made.

Room Tip: Have the hotel confirm your bedding configuration ( if it matters to you). The higher floors (not l...
