What a pleasant surprise. The Windsor Hotel is first class. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The current manager of the restaurant previously worked at Wolfgang Pucks and it shows! If you book a room, find out if Joanne is available for a massage. Her place is 4 blocks from the hotel. Joanne is well trained and experienced. She...

Our room was very clean, service was great and all at a reasonable price. I'm only giving 4/5 because the walls are very very thin and our neighbours kept their tv on all night which kept us awake and the beds are very firm. We stayed at the Windsor whilst visiting wolf creek ski resort which was about a 40...

The Windsor is out of the way, but worth seeking out. We were looking for a place to break up a trip from Denver to El Paso, along the more scenic routes. The Windsor has been restored with a passion by a committed local team. Someone actually found the original tin ceiling plates and parts of the original floor. Make...

Superb hotel & restaurant with great service. Rooms are lovely & very clean. Dinner is a must here as the restaurant is world-class! Vatiery of local meats prepared to perfection by a creative young chef. Large selection of coctails, beer, and wine. Charming bar if you want a less formal dining experience.

The Windsor has a wonderful mix of the old with the new, and contains an excellent restaurant. There are large, luscious croissants provided with home made jam each morning, gratis. There is no need to search for electric outlets or internet connections. The Windsor is the best hotel I've experienced in that regard. I spent several nights there, enjoying the...

Housed in an 1874 building, the Windsor hotel is the best (maybe only!) housing option in the small town of Del Norte, CO. The rooms have been updated in a Victorian style and are clean and well-appointed. They are not huge but are more than adequate. It is also quiet. There is a restaurant and a small intimate bar on...

Wow, who would have expected to find a completely refurbished vintage hotel with an EXCELLENT restaurant in Del Norte, CO? Not us, so it was a wonderful surprise! Not only is the lobby pretty but the rooms have been redone as well. And the pricing is the best bang for your buck around. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The...

There is no way I would have independently taken a chance at staying overnight in Del Norte without the recommendation for the Windsor Hotel I read on Trip Advisor. But the ratings were so high we took a chance and I am proud to say that, once again, Trip Advisor ratings and reviews have proved reliable. We were fortunate that...

Everything about the Windsor Hotel was a lovely surprise. The renovation of this historic hotel is impeccable. The restaurant serves marvelous food and wine, not expected in such a small town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
