Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
Philip Aleo has created a comprehensive and unique history of this most famous jewel of Durango, Colorado, from the early conflicts to its continuing restoration. This is a large book full of reproduced newspaper articles, excellent antique and full color photographs, and thoroughly accurate information. It also offers more than a snapshot of Colorado history: William Henry Jackson, Otto Mears and the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, the feude over the Royal Gorge, and the early development of Durango, to name a few. One chapter tells the history of Henry Strater and his family. There is also a section on famous folks who have stayed in the hotel. If anyone is unable to spend a night or two in this lovely Victorian place, Philip's book is certainly the next best thing.

I purchesed the book on a visit to Durango, Colorado. My grandfather and great grandfather lived in Durango in 1913 and I found documents that verified my great grandfather was a desk clerk at the Strater Hotel. The book has a special meaning to me. It is a great historical narrative of Durango.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is an EXCELLENT book about the historic Strater Hotel in Durango, Colorado, with plenty of information about its past and present. Photos--both black-and-white and color plates are in abundance, and makes you want to plan your next trip to Colorado someplace besides Denver. Clearly a labor of love. They don't build hotels like this anymore, and they never will again. Support the restoration and preservation of America's architectural jewels!
