“Very good hotel in an exceptional location”
Reviewed 19 April 2011

My wife and I have been visiting Durango for over 15 years and this is the first time we’ve stayed in the Doubletree Hotel – we’ve stayed in other hotels as well as vacation homes. We stayed here for three reason and we were not disappointed: 1) this hotel accepts pets, 2) great location, and 3) overall quality of the Hilton chain. We always travel with our two Shelties and this was one of the best places we’ve ever stayed that accepts pets. This hotel is located right next to the Animas River, which is a great place to walk dogs – it seems like every other person walking along the river has a dog. Even better, though, is that this hotel is only about 100 yards away from a huge dog park where you can let your dogs run off leash – the best dog park we’ve ever seen. The staff was very helpful, too. We originally had a street-side view; when I saw the river-side rooms on the ground floor with a sliding glass door opening to the river, the staff accommodated my request to move. This was great for walking our dogs. Our room was very nice and comfortable. This is where we will stay on our next visit.

Room Tip: Great place if you have a dog

I stay at the Doubletree Durango monthly and find it to be comfortable and the staff extremely friendly and eager to please. I often stay the night before a flight or on the back to Pagosa. The rooms are clean, comfortable and relaxing. The upgrade to flat screen TVs last year is a welcome addition. I've stayed everywhere In Durango and the Double tree is by far the best. I'll be back this Wednesday before my early flight Thursday morning.

The 2 queen room Was huge. We had a sliding glass door where we could walk right out to the river. Location to downtown was decent. Not totally downtown but you can still walk everywhere. Room was fairly clean. There were some minor stains on the carpet. I think there was a dog pee stain on the shower curtain. Bathroom was really nice otherwise. Furnishings were just ok. The bed was comfy. Free wifi but breakfast wasn't included. We probably won't stay here again when we return to Durango. We'll stay somewhere cheaper or camp.

The Doubltree Durango was decidedly average, with the exception of the location and breakfast buffet, which were both great.
Location: The view of the Animas River from our room on the top (4th) floor was very nice. We could open the sliding door onto a very small balcony and enjoy the sounds of a babbling brook (small river) and watch fly fisherman in action. The hotel is very convenient to dowtown Durango (1 block away) and is immediately adjacent to a grocery store (in case you want snacks or fruits or supplies for skiing).
Breakfast Buffet: The breakfast buffet (included in out room rate) was great. There were fresh waffles, made to order eggs and omelets, yogurt parfaits, bacon, sausage, and an oatmeal bar. Everything you need to start your ski day. Plus, you can get some of their breakfast paninis to go!
For being a hotel near a ski resort, I was surprised to see such a boring pool and hot tub area. They could really spruce it up a bit. (I felt like I was walking through a dank basement.) They could also heat up the dry sauna and let people know it is there.
I would have given higher marks to the hotel, but it's decor is dated and the elevator was broken down for more than a day.

Nothing wrong with it and staff are very nice. It's just a tired property that needs to be updated. Comfy beds, awesome location.

Over Presidents weekend, 9 of us went to Durango to ride the Durango Train. It was the Photographers Special train ride. 3 of us from Albuquerque, 4 from TX, 2 from MO.
We had our reservations well in advance and had been looking forward to this trip for a long time! We went to the Train station first to get our tickets and look around, then to the hotel for check in. LOVE the warm cookies Doubletree always hands out! YUM
Great check in, hotel is across the street from the Train Station & Downtown Durango...excellent location! The river that runs behind it is so cool!! We had a quick snow storm the night we arrived so it was very beautiful. A friend and I went to the hot tub that evening after dinner. The tub was big, hot...and we enjoyed the soak, only there were some little kids that were in there too...parents on the other side of the pool, visitng. We actually didn't mind...until the boys started jumping in...no help from the parents..so we left. The breakfast was delish and we were ready for the day!
Our room was very large and clean. I didn't sleep very well the first night...but I think it was the pillows!..so the next night...I used the one that says 'sweet dreams' and did a little better.
There is a good gift shop there, too. Staff was friendly and helpful! I would stay here again - and our visitors enjoyed it too!
