We stayed in The Loft at the Rochester and it was absolutely fantastic. The room is more like an apartment with a full kitchen, dining area, tv area, a master bedroom and a queen off the tv room. Since at the time, almost all food options were take out only, it was perfect for either eating that, or cooking our own meal, which we did several times. It was also nice to relax around the fireplace in the room after a day of skiing. The complimentary s'mores in the garden were also great.
Kirk and Laura were fantastic hosts and their team (Nathaniel and Susan) were also great. We could not have asked for better service. It's just a great place that is so much better than even the best chain hotels. We'll definitely be back.
The hotel is one street from Main Street and almost everything you need is within walking distance. Restaurants, grocery, souvenir stores, specialty stores, and the train.
We stayed in Room #1 in the LeLand House. It is a small apartment with a living room, kitchen/dining area, and bedroom/bathroom. The doors are all coded so no need for a key. And Staff was attentive and available when needed.
The living room had a coat closet, couch (with bed), and a fireplace heater. There’s some other furniture as well like desk, chair, table, and tv. Every comfy and cozy. Sat four people comfortably.
The kitchen had a fridge, stove/oven, and sink. There were a couple pots and pans and table settings for four. No microwave. The high table sat four.
The bedroom had a queen bed and plenty of light. The fireplace heater kept entire place heated. The bathroom had a shower (no tub) with shampoo/conditioner, and soap dispensers. And of course a toilet. The bedroom also had a closet with luggage rack.
This is our go to hotel for all the times we stay in a hotel in Durango.
Great location, great room, great breakfast = perfect place to stay. Durango is a fun, friendly town and Leland House and Rotchester Hotel were the perfect place to end & start the day. I will go back
The room was wonderful, comfortable and clean. I love the updates they have done to this cute little hotel. The service staff is amazing and the owner, Kirk, is on property and full of great ideas about how to spend your time in Durango.
I walked around town after checking in and got a feeling for this vibrant community. The restaurants within walking distance are numerous and very diverse.
I would recommend the Rochester to anyone coming to Durango.
We had a long day of travel and Ava made us feel at home and welcome. The service was all around excellent. The cookies were delicious! Room had plenty of space, and even helped me out with a nice setup for Valentine’s Day. Breakfast was the best we had on our trip. Would definitely recommend the place and come back next time we’re passing through Durango.
