My wife and I stayed at the Strater Hotel last week (mid December). It was a wonderful experience. The staff was really friendly, the hotel was gorgeous (full of antiques and unique charm), the location was unbeatable in Durango, and the price was amazing. The hotel has several on site places to eat or have a drink, all of which share the general ambiance. There is a parking lot directly next to the hotel - which is a life saver with the poor parking available in the old part of town. The only downside that I can think of is that breakfast is served between 7:00 and 9:00. While on vacation I like to sleep in a bit. BTW, the overall quality of the included breakfast is better than most American hotels. Nothing to write home about though.
Bottom line: If you want to stay in Durango and are interested in a hotel with great value, style, location, and staff, stay at the Strater Hotel.
