This is a great historic hotel in the historic district of Ft. Collins. It is close to lots of restaurants and bars. The suite in which we stayed was very modern looking inside. It was very comfortable and provided everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The elevator is very quirky, but fun....

This is the perfect example of an updated, fantastic, downtown, affordable, boutique hotel. The location can't be beat and the prices are totally fair for what you get. The rooms are simple and clean, I love the style. They offer free bikes to use. I have stayed here multiple times because of the location right downtown, walking distance to everything.

When it comes to Fort Collins the downtown corridor, "Old Town", is the place to be for great food, entertainment, and shopping. I know because I was a resident of Fort Collins for 6 years, while I pursued higher education. And if you want to stay in this great corridor, the Armstrong is just about your only option. Fortunately, it's...

What a great historic hotel! We stayed for a wedding and had a great experience with the staff, the bar in the basement and the neighboring coffee shop. The location is perfect for exploring Ft Collins. We stayed in one of their larger rooms which was totally worth the money-it was quiet and super comfortable!

Sadly, we only had one night here. The location is fantastic. It's right in the middle of the old downtown area. Our room was stylish and quite large. This would be the perfect place to stay for a longer trip.

It is truly sad that you only got to spend one evening with us. There is plenty to do and see in the hotel and around town. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your one evening with us however. You will have to plan a return trip and spend some more time with us. I recommend staying with...

Location! That's it's best attribute. Rooms are a bit smaller than a traditional, modern hotel. They are comfortable, clean, and quiet, which is what counts. A definite feel of old world charm and character. The Inn Keeper was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. Definitely would stay again when in the area.

Hello Steven. Thank you for your nice review. Our standard rooms are 1923 standard; they are smaller than what most people are used to today. However, our suites are larger than what most people are used to today. Next time we see you, make sure to try out one of our suites (give us a call and ask for Shannon...

I stayed here with my girlfriend on a Saturday night and loved this place. The staff was incredibly accommodating and let us check in the room before noon, lucky it was cleaned already, so we could go to a CSU football game. The room was nice, the bed comfortable and had everything we needed. The old decor and retro feel...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a delightful review. I'm glad you had a good girls night out and I hope you had fun at the CSU football game. There are only three more games before we say farewell to Hughes Stadium. We still have rooms available for the last two home games, so we hope...

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Fort Collins and stayed at The Armstrong Hotel and we couldn't have been more thrilled with our experience!

The first thing to love about the Armstrong Hotel in Fort Collins, is Oreo Armstrong, the big and happy cat who owns the place! He's super friendly and welcoming. After Oreo, everything else is just as amazing. The rooms have a fun mod style. The rest of the hotel has a beautifully historic sytle, and down below, there is a...
