Grand Imperial Hotel

Old world ornament in a stunningly beautiful (and cute) mountain town

Committed to connecting their corner of the world to curious travelers, historians, and adventurers, the owners of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad purchased the Grand Imperial Hotel in 2015 and embarked on an extensive restoration project. Today, the Grand Lady of the San Juan Mountains stands as proud and opulent as the day it first opened in 1883.

Step off the train from Durango and into a bygone era.

What it's like

Huddled up in the heart of the high country, at 9,000 ft., the Grand, as it’s known to the locals, provides a true, down-to-the-damask 1880s experience. Hotel staff don period attire, and period furniture furnishes the 38-room landmark boutique. Mountains surround; views abound.    

Independent spirit

A preservation of history, a jumping-off point to experience a great American wildernesses—a lovely blend of natural beauty and Victorian romance

Small touches

The Point Solitude Spa—an onsite therapeutic massage and spa studio—offers various packages including deep tissue and hot stone massage, exfoliating sugar scrubs, and ginger and honey wraps.

Eat and drink

With an ornate tin-tile ceiling, a widespread antique mantel, ragtime piano entertainment, and bartenders in bodices, the vibe at The Grand Restaurant and Saloon is decidedly old-timey. Menu items include traditional pub fare and a few local delicacies—think Rocky Mountain oysters (but don't think too hard about them).
