Arrived after a long drive from Colorado Springs and were welcomed in warmly. Was placed in a suite across the street in their sister property. Lovely gas stove in the living room and lots of nice touches throughout. Breakfasts in the morning were outstanding.

My wife and I just stayed here for our first trip to Durango. We stayed in one of the queen suites and it far exceeded our expectations. I can't say enough good things about the staff. Very welcoming, very helpful, extremely nice. The location itself was awesome, centrally located to everything in town, and very close to some nice hikes...

Perfect place for a long weekend in Durango. Room was clean, comfy, & special because it was an historical rather than chain hotel. Breakfast was wonderful!!! The Rochester is in the middle of all the fun downtown. Great trip in a beautiful town.

We love this place. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are clean and elegant. We love the amenities most hotels ignore. For example, on our last day it was raining, I had to go outside to bring my car around. The Rochester had umbrellas available for guests to use. It may seem like a small thing but...

Because of a mix up, our room was not available, so they gave us a break on the room rate and put us across the street in their suite apartments, The Leland House. I really enjoyed having the extra space and pretending that it was my apartment and that I actually lived in Durango. And it was nice to have...
