Responsible tourism: Durango hotel in Colorado, USA
The Hotel is committed to green practices and sustainability. We have taken many steps to reduce our carbon footprint.
We reduced water usage by installing low flow toilets and using conservation cards – towels and linens changed between guests and upon request only. We have a comprehensive recycling program. We practice xeri-scaping to reflect the environment we live in where water is precious and not to be wasted. Natural amenities including Aveda and Bee Kind are provided in shower amenity dispensers and lotion dispensers to reduce small plastic bottle waste. We use non-toxic, natural and locally produced cleaning products. We serve organic, fair-trade coffee and tea, locally produced eggs, bread, hot sauce and honey, along with other seasonal items. We serve local beers (SKA, Telluride Brewing, Steamworks Brewing), rum and whiskey in our bar. In 2014 the Rochester Hotel had an energy usage assessment performed by the Four Corners Office of Resource (4CORE) Efficiency. The report focused on areas where the hotel can improve upon energy efficiency. Through 4CORE the Rochester Hotel has signed up for Solarize La Plata, a program that helps us coordinate the installation of solar panels. We continually research and improve practices that pay respect and lessen our impact on the environment.
Aside from staying in a family run, historic hotel, you can further benefit the local community and get to know local people in Durango by taking trips out with the area's expert guides and adventure outfitters, or simply shopping and eating in local restaurants. There is so much to do here, and many locals sustain a living through those wanting to explore the area from a local's perspective. We can refer you to amazing rafting, snow sports, hiking and biking companies. You'll be met with a friendly smile and we guarantee you will not be disappointed with the fantastic activities Durango has to offer.
There are also ancient ruins and the Mesa Verde National Park to explore, and trips outside of the town enable you to explore the heritage and history that the locals are so familiar with! Being in downtown Durango allows you to head out for a coffee or a beer at a moments notice, and most of the locals love to chat with visitors and tell them more about the area and its history.
We are happy to provide our team of wonderful staff, which will help make your stay with us the best it can be. Each of our employees is knowledgeable about the local area and can share what they love best about Durango to help make your stay special.
