The Strater Hotel

(970) 247-4431
Type: Historical Site

In August 2012, room 222 in the Strater Hotel was designated a literary landmark in honor of Western author Louis L’Amour (1908-1988). For more than ten years, Louis L'Amour spent the month of August writing in room 222, citing the sounds from the Diamond Bell Saloon directly below as inspiration for his writing. Founded in 1887, the Strater Hotel features authentic American Victorian antique furniture and decor. It is home to the Henry Strater Theatre, which features vaudville performances and other entertainment. Dining is available at the Strater's Diamond Belle Saloon, the Office Spiritorium, or the Mahogany Grille.
