My wife and I traveled to Durango for our honeymoon and were presently surprised by the quality of the General Palmer hotel. The front desk staff provided excellent, friendly service--they even wrote us a personalized thank you letter for staying at the hotel! The presidential suite was absolutely stunning, definitely worth the extra bucks (however, we mentioned it was for our honeymoon and they gave us the price for a regular king size room!). The breakfast was good quality and delivered to the room free of charge. Additionally, wireless was also free, none of the usual hassles with costly wireless commonly associated with higher end hotels. The hotel is conveniently located downtown close to all the shops so everything is within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this place for anyone planning on spending their honeymoon in Durango or just getting away for a weekend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rich with Victorian elegance, the General Palmer Hotel has all the modern comforts that you would expect of a Four Diamond establishment. Named after General William Jackson Palmer who established the hotel in 1898, the General Palmer is the only historical Four Diamond Hotel in Southwestern Colorado. Each room has been hand decorated in the Victorian era with luxurious amenities. It’s the little touches that make the General Palmer unique; freshly baked muffins each morning and Teddy Bears on every bed.

We are located in downtown Durango right next door to the Narrow Gauge Railroad and we are within easy walking distance of many fine dining restaurants. ... more less
