We spent 2 nights at the Windsor Hotel while in southern Colorado. The restoration of the hotel was awesome. From the entry hall to the restaurant to the rooms, it had a very comfortable feel to it. We stayed in a double queen room. The beds were comfortable but a bit soft. There was a sitting area off to one side and there was plenty of room to move around. The bathroom also had plenty of room although the shower would be a bit tight for a larger person. There was ample parking on the street in front (even more once the restaurant closed)
Overall an excellent experience and a good value for the price. We would definitely stay here again.

Was a bit anxious about a renovated old hotel in an out-of-the way place, but was very pleased with the accommodations and extremely impressed with both the food and service in the dining room--better on both accounts than than many urban fine dining restaurants I've eaten at.

They have done a great job of renovating this old hotel in the center of town. We had a large king room. Met our requirements of clean, quiet, and safe. If you're in the area of Del Norte, I would highly recommend you check this option out.

I really like old hotels that have been renovated. Not overly fancy. But just brought back to the way they were before they became derelict. It appears that the Windsor Hotel in Del Norte is such a place. I booked it hoping that it would be a
nice updated old hotel. It was just like I wanted it to be. It was a renovated old hotel in downtown Del Norte. The lobby is delightful, right out of another era. They have an old buggy, a baby grand piano and displays of the Hotel over the years. At the side is a grand staircase leading to the second floor. The room has a high ceiling and big windows. It’s been nicely preserved with period furnishings and light fixtures. There’s a queen bed, bed stands, writing desk and easy chair. The bathroom had been nicely renovated. Supposedly there’s a bullet hole in one side of the sink stand. But maybe not. Feels more like a hole that’s been drilled into the wood.

While they don't have any sort of breakfast, out in the second story lobby they have a coffee stand and had croissants set out in the morning. Nice touch.

The desk clerks are also so nice and helpful. They fit right in with the place. Good choice.

We stayed at the Windsor in Del Norte, on our way down to Mesa Verde. This is about four hours from the Denver metro area, and seemed a good place to stop overnight. The Windsor rooms have been very nicely renovated with period furniture, but have contemporary bathrooms that are much nicer than you'll find at chain hotels. The lobby had a old town, western feel, that we found inviting. I love a place that locks its front door at night, but gives you a key to get in, if you're out after 9pm. We read that their restaurant was excellent, but unfortunately it was closed on Sunday nights.

About
Description
Built in 1874, and one of Colorado's oldest hotels, the Windsor has been the heart of the town of Del Norte for nearly 140 years. Originally known as "The Whitsitt House", this “Grand Dame’s” construction More started soon after the town was founded in 1871. In the last quarter of the 1800's, Del Norte was a booming and thriving mining and ranching hub. Once on the short list for the capital of Colorado, Del Norte lost by one vote to Denver as state capital. The Windsor Hotel was the focal point of social and commercial activity in San Luis Valley area and remained a regional gathering spot for over a hundred years. Del Norte, remained a prospering and influential town in south western Colorado until the early 1970's. The Windsor Hotel too, began to reflect the area’s decline. By 1993, the hotel was dilapidated and in a state of ruination. A wrecking ball was literally looming over the decaying and lifeless “Victorian Lady” as she awaited her final fate. With amazing foresight and dedication, a local benefactor and his wife, Doctor Raymond & Mrs. Barbra Culp, stepped in to save the Windsor from demolition, literally at the last minute (the hotel lounge, Bistro Barbara, is named after Mrs. Culp in her honor). Over the past 20 years, several phases of reconstruction, restoration and regeneration have produceded an eloquent lodging and dining establishment. Highlights are a "turn-of-the-century" parlor, elegant dining and event rooms, and a living history interpretive area. Less
