We have decided on the dates for the Durango, CO tour. We’re leaving on Thursday July 18th and returning on Monday July 22.

This will give us one day each for traveling to and from and 3 days to enjoy the many attractions and scenic drives the area
offers.

 

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT

 

I have devoted a great deal of time and effort with regards to our lodging situation in Durango. We are going to be visiting there at the very peak of
the tourist season and already some facilities are booked up and others are getting scarce. In my first inquiry, I discovered the rooms at the Hampton
Inn are on either side of $170 per night + tax. This prompted me to do a very thorough search of alternate locations and let me just abbreviate by saying
that I found nothing else suitable for substantially less. The Best Western offered $164 a night but they are in downtown Durango with limited parking
and no free breakfast. Assuming we all take advantage of the free breakfast at the Hampton, that is a savings of about $25 each day as it would cost
that much for two to breakfast in a local restaurant. Pagosa Springs Lodge offered $130 but they are 44 miles from Durango~~~~~~~~~~~~~I found
similar serious issues with a few others I investigated and I also signed up with Hotels.com and did not better. The bottom line is that we will be staying
at the Hampton and we did get a bit of a discount as I negotiated with the General Manager and she remembered us from our previous visits with them.

In round figures, the rooms with 2 queen beds are $160 per night and the King bed rooms are $170. I am sure tax will be added to these numbers, if we want
to stay in Durango, we have no choice although I was hoping for some more reasonable pricing.

I am in the process of block booking 16 rooms, 6 with 2 queens and the remainder with a king. As soon as they have it set up and notify me, I will send out
an email with their phone number and other details you will need to book with our group.
