One of the oldest and most popular historic dwellings in town is the Henry Strater Hotel, built in 1887, where customers can enjoy the old Victorian charm maintained by a huge collection of antiques throughout the hotel. Everyone knows the artifacts aren’t the only think keeping the great place alive; there are friendly ghosts all around the residence to keep the energy flowing.
The also-prestigious Victorian-style General Palmer Hotel was built in 1898 and has many beautiful antiques and paintings that enrich its authentic heritage. There is rooftop terrace available to guests in nice weather.
Both of these grandfather hotels are located in the heart of downtown Durango, and within walking distance of the best food, art, and local shops you could ask for!
We mustn’t forget the astounding Mesa Verde, located just a couple hours west of town. Featuring some of the best preserved Ancient Puebloan archaeology in the United States, people come from all around the world to experience this World Heritage Site.
