The Rochester Hotel was the fifth stop for my husband and I on our road trip. We arrived to a friendly welcome and were then shown to our room which was on the upper floor. I loved the decor of the room and of the hotel overall. The bed was comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast was...

We have stayed at number of times and we always love it. They have 2 dog rooms, which you need to book in advance, and we do. They lead out to the beautiful courtyard. Spring is Beautiful with lots of blooming flowers. And the breakfasts are gourmet and made individually when you come into the breakfast area. You are so...

A turn of the century home now a hotel/B&B. Great location near everything in downtown. An extremely courteous and helpful staff. Nice small bar with inside and outside seating. Large rooms with all the amenities. Great breakfast - buffet and custom hot selection. Coffee/tea is available early in the lobby. Absolutely recommend!

We arrived a bit late and the staff offered to help us grab our gear and relax. This hotel is a covered Victorian home with a beautiful courtyard. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is home made and delicious . Look no further if you want an authentic stay in a a great location .

I stayed across the street at the Leland House which is a little quieter according to the front desk. The room was clean and nice with all the necessary amenities. They're are restaurants right across the street and you're only one block away from Main Street and all the activity of downtown.

We usually stay at the Rochester Hotel when we attend the Durango Independent Film Festival at the beginning of March. The hotel staff does an outstanding job making us feel welcome.

We come to Durango once a year, and we always stay at the Rochester. The walls are covered in old western movie posters, many of which were filmed in Durango. The rooms are cozy and clean, with just the right mix of antiques and modern conveniences. Each morning you are greated by friendly staff, and yummy homemade breakfast. And, of...

Stopped at the Rochester with friends between events for a glass of wine and a visit. The Rochester Cabernet is a terrific sipping wine. Our hosts joined us in conversation. No holds barred. Stimulating, interesting, and fun. Lovely atmosphere to hide away.

The positives are many for the Rochester/Leland. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, an authentic southwestern feel, and centrally located within walking distance of all the happenings on main street. This was our third stay here and it was great as usual. We prefer the Leland House side as it is a little more private but both sides are good. The...
