A stay in the Strater was on my bucket list. My great-grandmother worked as a maid at the Strater in Durango's silver mining heyday. The owners have done a great job of preserving the historic aspects of the hotel while accommodating present-day amenities - i.e. in-room bathrooms, Wi-Fi, etc. Superior corner room, very comfortable with a view of the Durango - Silverton narrow gauge railroad was a big plus.

Booked one room for my family and pet. Staff was very welcoming and attentive. Great happy hour set-up - could even sit out on outdoor patio enjoying the evening with the dog. We lucked out and got to listen to a great band playing on the patio one nite for the hotel's one year anniversary. Room was comfortable and mostly quiet - only critique would be the the noisy refrigerator motor. Did not keep us up though.
Price was a bit higher than I would normally like to pay, but short notice booking during summer in Durango, I couldn't expect much lower.
Overall - I would definitely recommend this hotel again.
