We visited Durango in 2007 and stayed two nights in the Strater Hotel. We dined in the Mahogany Grille and visited the Diamond Belle Saloon. The Henry Strater theater is also on the property; we took in one of their melodrama productions in late 2003. The hotel is a short two-block walk from the Durango & Silverton narrow-gauge train depot and the railroad line runs along the property line behind the hotel...many train whistles! The train does not run at night, fortunately. The rooms are impeccably maintained and there is an elevator for easy access to the upper floors.
