“Serving Durango since 1887”
Built in 1887, The historic Strater Hotel is a prominent downtown Durango, Colorado landmark located two blocks north of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Cleveland pharmacist, Henry Strater, believed Durango would thrive, and with its prosperity, it would need a grand hotel. The Strater Hotel opened after an expenditure of $70,000 and placement of 376,000 native red bricks and hand-carved sandstone cornices and sills. As the hotel evolved, it became a popular winter retreat for Durango town folk who would close their own homes during the cold months and move into the hotel. Currently, the Strater Hotel houses the world’s largest collection of American Victorian Antiques, many of which decorate its 93 guestrooms including its Louis L’Amour Room—designated Literary Landmark. The Strater Hotel is home to the Durango Melodrama & Vaudeville, Henry Strater Theatre, Diamond Belle Saloon, Mahogany Grille, Strater Catering and Events, and The Office Spiritorium.
Great old-timey hotel! Wonderful place to stay and get into the spirit of Durango.
I loved this place, very well maintained and super charming. The room we stayed in was a little dark but that's architecture in its original state and again part of the charm. The whole town was great, we ate dinner at ore house food was good and seemed more like a local place.
Neat place to see. Can't say enough about Adam playing the piano. That boy's fingers can move. Food average and I'm not sure the buffalo burger was actually buffalo. Still great for a drink while you listen to extremely lively music.
