Room Dedication Project

Room Dedication

A Very Special Room Dedication Project

The historic Strater Hotel has been a part of the Durango community since 1887, and has been in the Barker family since 1926. Current owners Rod and Laurie Barker wish to share their hotel with you through their special Room Dedication Project. Each each of the hotel’s 93 guestrooms is being named after individuals, families, and institutions that have and continue to play an important role in the founding and development of Durango and its surrounding areas.

During the Strater Hotel’s 2012 Annual Open House the first set of guestrooms were dedicated to Joseph A. Walker, the Kroeger Family, Louis and Kathy L’Amour, Olga Little Schaaf, Charles Schumacher, the Strater Family, and the First National Bank of Durango. During 2013 an additional eleven rooms were dedicated including to Will Rogers, President Gerald Ford, Hattie Mashburn, and Marion Jarvis. To read more about each of the dedications each is listed below.

As the Special Room Dedication Project proceeds, the Strater Hotel will continue to ask for nominations for the project. We invite you to share your nomination by filling out a room dedication form and returning it to the Strater Hotel. Nomination forms can be downloaded by clicking here. You may send us your nominations by one of the following ways:
