A Blend of Past & Present

Strater Hotel Originally constructed in 1887, the Strater Hotel offers 93 impeccably appointed Victorian rooms.Strater Hotel Sign

The Hotel is ornamented with hand-screened Bradbury & Bradbury wallpapers, and the world's largest collections of American Victorian walnut antique furniture.  All this in the setting of the beautiful Southern Colorado Rockies. Durango Colorado is a one-of-a-kind place!

Strater Hotel LobbyA stay at the Strater will give you a sense of place in Durango and help to create memories that will last a lifetime, and isn't that what vacations are all about?

This is the real thing! From the moment you step into the lobby it's like entering another world. Authentic American Victorian antique furniture, crystal, and lace transport you back to another century.

The Strater will take you to a romantic time in our frontier history when the allure of gold and silver were king and Victorian palaces like the Strater were a splash of opulence in an otherwise rough, and often treacherous wild west.  The hotel lobby is like a museum with display cases full of wonderful relics of the times from the Cliff Dwellers at Mesa Verde to the 1890's and early 1900's.The Office at the Strater Hotel

The Famous Diamond Belle Saloon, Office Spiritorium and Mahogany Grille are favorites of our locals.
