Not air conditioning in a room W/O windows

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: We love the charm, location and the teddy bears.
Cons: Fix the Air Conditioning!!!!!
Location: Location was great as we were riding the D&SNG railroad.
My wife and I had a two day stay at the hotel. While we found the Hotel Charming and ideally located, we did not have air conditioning or at least fresh air in our room. This is a room without windows. We inquired about the situation numerous times and were told someone was working on it or according to our information everything is working fine. I can attest that is was not working. If the problem cannot be fixed then admit to the problem, do not gloss over a situation that cannot be corrected.

Perfect place to stay in town.

Pros: Historical!
Cons: Breakfast is continental only.
Location: The Durango-Silverton train is a half block away. Great places to dine nearby!
The staff, on all days, were very cordial and friendly.

I expected more from a four diamond hotel

Posted 02-Sep-2014
Pros: It is a beautiful hotel. The room was clean and quiet. It was close enough to walk to just about anywhere we wanted to go.
Cons: Improve customer service. The continental breakfast could be better-like replacing the toaster that kept burning everyone's toast. Minibars in rooms.
Location: There were several restaurants/bars for what ever we were in the mood for. Shopping in the little shops on main street was nice.
We arrived at the hotel round 2 p.m. and they said that we could not check in till 4:00. We asked that they call us if a room was clean before then, because we had just rode our motor cycle over 300 miles and we just wanted a shower and to get some rest. They said they would. We came back to the hotel after eating some lunch and saw them checking other people in. This was around 3:00 and they had not called us. This was more than a little irritating. We asked to get a room right then and they did check us into one. The room was very nice. My only complaints about the room are that the toilet was broken - and not fixed after telling the front desk about it - and that there was not a minibar. I have stayed at 4 and 5 star/diamond hotels and this one really did not measure up to the standards that I have experienced.

Wonderful place

Posted 16-Aug-2014
A beautiful, periodic place with very comfortable room and great location. Only minus was that a lightning bolt had knocked out their internet board so wifi was out for over 24 hours. It wasn't a major inconvenience, but the hotel should have had a back up for that. Otherwise, a great place!

Room we were in had a window to a lighted air shaft. No way to block all the light at night. Hard to sleep

This was the most comfortable hotel I have ever staid in. The quality of service to each costumer was unmatched in every way. Any concerns were dealt with a smile and a better solution. Location was prefect not in the main traffic of downtown Durango but close enough to get anywhere with in minutes. Loads of parking was a plus. This is a building that was built over 110 yrs ago and the renovations to accommodate todays traveler is commendable. Thank You General Palmer Hotel for making my stay so wonderful.

We were disappointed with the breakfast selections. The cookies in the afternoon were very appreciated.
