First time we stayed here was about two years ago while the owner who restored it was still in charge. While the hotel was wonderful, the staff was pretty much invisible and you felt very alone. Not this time! The new owners are the most gracious hosts imaginable, attending to your every need. The hotel is spotless, immaculately maintained, and too beautiful for words. We stayed in the Dragonfly Room this time, it is so comfortable and luxurious. This time we didn't experience anything strange, but last time we stayed in the Skylight Suite and had a pretty spooky occurrence in the bathroom. Won't say what, but if you stay there and something happens lets compare notes!!!!
We had dinner in the Tundra Restaurant and can't say enough good about it. Their chef is a true artist. Everything was superb, including the service. The continental breakfast was just OK, but we're not big breakfast eaters. If the hotel was more fully occupied I am sure they would do better.
So in summary, if you want to stay in a beautiful, historic hotel that has been lovingly restored, and is very well run by enthusiastic new owners, this is the place in Ouray. It's worth the drive.
