My family of four drove into Leadville wanting to experience something a little different than the Super 8 on the south side of town. Along the main street we spotted the Delaware Hotel and decided to check it out. They had room for us, and I mean ROOM. We got a suite (Number 5) with two huge bedrooms with a pass-through bathroom. One room had two queen beds and a single daybed; the other one had a very tall queen. At the front desk they stated that the room with the one bed was a king, but it wasn't. No worries, there was plenty of space. Each bedroom had a sink as the bathroom held only the toilet and tub.
The furniture, all of it apparently available for purchase, were gorgeous antiques. The matresses were very comfortable and the bedding was new and beautiful. There were plenty of towels. The floors were uneven, so if you're unstable on your feet or use a walker, it might be difficult for you. Obviously, you are in one of the older buildings in Leadville and it exuded history. Quite a fun experience. My teen kids said it was the nicest hotel (read: interesting and unique) they had ever stayed in.
The continental breakfast was a continental breakfast: breads, fruits and cereal, just as advertised. In addition, they had hard-boiled eggs and yogurt. This is served on the second floor amongst even more antiques.
The one beef I had was the archaic TVs located in both of the bedrooms. They are tiny and were either bolted to the wall at about eight feet off the ground or placed on top of a dresser. The remote didn't even work for one of them so it was difficult to adjust the channel and volume. The cord of the other TV was so short that we couldn't move the set to allow two people to see the screen without one person peering around the poster part of the bed.
Overall, if you want to experience a little different flavor than the standard double queen, the Delaware Hotel would be a great alternative.
