Strater Hotel

Create Your Memories from
Our Corner of the World


Built in 1887, the historic Strater Hotel is a prominent downtown Durango, Colorado landmark located two blocks north of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and one hour from the Mesa Verde National Park. Guests experience the Old West while just steps away from eclectic dining, shopping, and many outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, biking, rafting, jeeping, and much more. However, once at the Strater there is plenty to do and see. The hotel is home to the world’s largest collection of American Victorian Walnut Antiques and the Louis L’Amour Room (designated a Literary Landmark). Once you're settled in unwind with daily live music at the Diamond Belle Saloon and The Office Spiritorium, and fine dining at the Mahogany Grille where you can experience Handcrafted Flavors of the West. For those wishing to create a memorable event for any occasion, please don't hesitate to talk with our Strater Catering and Events folks who will give you and your guests a fabulous experience (weddings, business, special events). And be sure to check out our world famous Henry Strater Theatre show line up (year-round) including the Durango Melodrama & Vaudeville (seasonal).
