Just returned from week-long road trip through the Four Corners region. My husband and I stopped in Durango for an overnight before heading to Mesa Verde. The Strater hotel seemed the obvious choice - Old West Victorian style kitsch billed as luxury. I was not disappointed in the hotel itself - the common areas are lovely and the staff was attentive and friendly. The location on Durango's main 'strip' is convenient. Even the room I was given was tastefully decorated. However, for the price I paid (160$) I would have expected a little more - for instance, I was given a room facing an alley, with an air conditioning system that did not quite work properly. I am not the type of person to complain and make a fuss about perceived problems with hotels - and the Strater is a nice place - however, in this instance, I think a cheaper chain hotel would have worked out better for an overnight in Durango. If you're staying for a while, though, the Strater might be for you - just make sure you get a room you're completely satisfied with.
