Rochester Hotel

721 E. Second Ave. (Seventh St.) Durango CO

Durango's oldest hotel---restored with a sense of history and humor.

Rochester Hotel

Inspired by the many Western movies filmed in the area, this hotel is noted for its cowboy funky decor. Most notably, movie posters (framed in gold and Hollywood lights) line the hallways. The hotel is just steps away from the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Station and Durango's historic Main Street. Fifteen high-ceilinged rooms (with names like Harry Carey, after the Chicago sports announcer, and Around the World in 80 Days) have king or queen beds, phones, cable TV and private baths. Most of the rooms are decorated in a combination of Old West and high Victorian motifs. Some are handicapped accessible, and two are available for guests with pets. Breakfast includes coffee, freshly baked bread and muffins and one hot entrée such as blueberry buttermilk pancakes or Havarti dill scrambled eggs. Every afternoon guests are hosted in the ornate lobby for tea and homemade cookies.
