Still great!

We had been to the Diamond Belle Saloon (which is in the Strater Hotel) a few years ago, and heard some great ragtime piano played by Sue Keller.

We remembered the fun we had, and this time decided to stay in the hotel. If you want to stay in a historic Victorian hotel that takes pride in its heritage, you'll like this place.

We certainly did.

And, this time they had another great pianist in the saloon, Bill Edwards. He was great! Stride piano, ragtime, early blues - he makes the piano sing. It is a great addition to the ambiance of the hotel.

We also rode the steam train from Durango to Silverton and back. The depot is only a block or two from the hotel, which is nice.


Beautifully decorated hotel with everything from the ceiling to the floor period . Gorgeous antiques
Great food for breakfast in the attached restaurant
(Wish there was still a brunch .. buffet) and good drinks and entertainment (music) in the attached bar
We went out to find things to do and ended back in the bar at the hotel, as it turns out it’s the most upbeat place around. Desk help friendly
Rooms quiet, spacious and gorgeous
Try to book your trip when the train is running great view from the back of the hotel of the train and mountains
Also NOT FOUND on any paper work .... or room directory
There is private hot tub you can use in the hotel
They don’t offer it ... advertise it or even tell you about it
So if you don’t stumble on it in your wandering
You won’t even know it’s there ... almost hidden behind offices in the rear of the hotel

Last minute reservations

We made a reservation on the same day and it was great. This place is beautiful and clean. It’s in the heart of downtown Durango. We were able to visit several places and enjoyed wine and beer. I’d love to come stay here again.
