4/5 Good

Great location right in the heart of downtown Durango. Really beautiful hotel and property. The TVs are old and in dire need of replacement, the one in my room did not work, aside from the volume., and the heater did not work. Definitely not what you expect from a 4 star hotel. The hotel would be better off if they did not serve breakfast which consisted of your normal selections that you would find at a La Quinta. Rooms with windows do not sufficiently block out the lights from the city, if you need darkness to sleep, select a room with no windows.
