Just recently stayed at the General Palmer while on a college visit trip. This old hotel has great charm, and is in a super location within walking distance to everything, and Starbucks is right across the street. Front desk was very nice and answered any of our travel/logistics questions. One young man actually was a college student at Fort Lewis College where my daughter was accepted, and it was nice to get an inside view on the college, town etc. We stayed in the annex which was no problem for us with the stairs as we can handle that kind of situation, and we had the two room suite. It was really big and gave us lots of room and privacy for our daughter. Only complaint is that bathroom is quite small....but it's an old hotel, so we cut it some slack. breakfast was nice, but I always wish that the coffee was stronger in the comp breakfast rooms, but I guess they can't adjust their coffee just for me:-) All in all, a nice, quiet stay, where we could roam the main street of historic durango and have plenty of room to stretch out afterwards.
