Historic Strater Hotel
Lonely Planet review
The past lives large in this historical Durango hotel with walnut antiques, hand-stenciled wallpapers and relics ranging from a Stradivarius violin to a gold-plated Winchester. Rooms lean toward the romantic, with comfortable beds amid antiques, crystal and lace. The boast- worthy staff goes out of its way to assist with inquiries.
The hot tub is a romantic plus (reserved by the hour), as is the summertime melodrama (theater) the hotel runs. In winter, rates drop by more than 50%, making it a virtual steal. Look online.
