My family and I just enjoyed a lovely night at the Strater Hotel. From the moment we entered, we were engulfed in the ambience of the 1880s. Yes, it is a little hokey, but we loved it! Our daughter adored the "shoot-out" in the Diamond Belle Saloon and the fabulous vaudeville show we saw later that evening. We had a Deluxe Room which was well-appointed with Eastlake antiques and exquisite Bradbury and Bradbury wallpapers. It was like sleeping inside a Victorian jewel box. Every space of the hotel was beautifully decorated with various historically-appropriate wallpapers. The room where we enjoyed a generous complimentary Continental breakfast featured a breath-taking tin and stain-glass ceiling, intricate Aesthetic Movement woodwork, and at least six patterns of period-appropriate wallpaper. The staff throughout the hotel could not have been more polite and helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys historic interiors, comfortable lodgings, courteous service, and good ol' Wild West fun like you see in the movies.
