Ouray Hotel has long provided a soothing relaxing atmosphere!

Long before the area was discovered by two miners in search of gold, the tiny canyon now known as Ouray served as a sacred spot for the Ute Indians. Some people speculate that perhaps the name "Uncompahgre", or dirty water, was given to the area to protect the secret of the hot springs.

Ouray, Colorado is the Perfect Holiday Shopping Experience!

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mon, Nov 24, 2014 @12:22 PM

Escape to a Winter Wonderland in Southwest Colorado this season!

Shopping for Christmas presents can be a daunting task; the crowded department stores, the lack of supplies, and finding parking. Not to mention the fact that many of the gifts you buy are not as unique or memorable as you would like. The pressures of Christmas and New Year’s tend to extend beyond just the gifts. Maybe you will be having family or friends staying with you and are expected to prepare elaborate meals. Or perhaps you have fundraisers or other holiday events to run. All these added responsibilities can be overwhelming.
