Perfect for an autumn anniversary
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for our 2nd anniversary. I chose it based on the raving reviews posted on this website, and they were all right on the money! The staff is the nicest we've ever encountered. The helpful bellmen even went to the library to check out some books on our behalf on the local moutain biking trails. The free breakfast was delicious, much better than some others we'd paid for. The view of the aspen trees out of our window couldn't be beat, and it was hard to tear ourselves out of the heavenly bed to ride the trails in our book. We'll be back!
Great Staff - Great Service!
My husband and I were recently at the Hotel Telluride and were very pleased with the trip. The hotel itself is great but the service is really what makes this place stand out in my mind. Our initial reservation request was incorrect and I was very upset that the type of room we requested was not available. The staff could not have been nicer in trying to resolve this situation and after the first night they more than made up for the mistake. Every employee of this hotel was pleasant and professional and they were much nicer to me than I deserved!! This is a great place to stay and we are planning to return there in the summer too. Oh and the cookies are great!! (Especially the chocolate chip)
Very nice hotel in Telluride
We stayed here in January. My wife and I are not skiers, so we picked it for its luxurious accomodations. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a suite with a view of the slopes.
If you are a skier, you may be turned off by the hotel's location. It is not ski-in, ski-out whatsoever. It is located 5 blocks from the nearest lift, so walking with ski boots on could be cumbersome. But don't worry...the hotel has a complimentary shuttle van that will take guests to any Telluride address (restaurants, shops, lifts, gondola) and pick you up. Quick service with a phone call.
We stayed in Room 324...it has a "fireplace" which is ignited with the flip of a switch and is behind glass. It has two totally separate rooms. One can see the whole city side of the mountain from the room.
If you don't want a suite, but would like a view of the slopes, I would recommend the following room numbers: 303, 304, 307, 308, 312, 313, 314.
The staff was very friendly. There are cookies available at the desk in the afternoon; there is free apres-ski food available in the bar area from 4-6.
One HAVE to do activity in Telluride: take the complimentary gondola up to the St. Sophia station and have drinks in the bar overlooking Telluride from 2000 feet above. Very nice.
Hope this helps.
Fabulous even in off season!
WE went in October when the whole town is quiet, waiting for ski season. The staff treated us as though we were the most important thing in town, chatting, giving recommendations. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. I will definitely come back to the Hotel Telluride. Absolutely great!
I notice all the details in a hotel experience and all details were wonderful on our 2-night visit to The Hotel Telluride. The lobby is beautiful with fireplace and the rooms full of charm and with views. The linens were very good, beds comfortable and hotel quiet (we were here in off-season). Breakfast buffet was great as were homemade cookies in the lobby in the afternoons. Aveda products in the baths were a nice touch as well as bathroom heaters. Didn't visit the spa. I would go back to the same hotel on a return visit.
My Husband and I had our wedding in Telluride, All of our guests stayed at the Hotel Telluride, and they allowed us to have a big party the night before in their bar and lobby area. What a Great Place to have spent our pre-wedding days!! Our guests had a great time!! We'll be back for our anniversaries!!!
Wonderful, simply devine
We stayed here in September 2003 for three nights. We absolutely loved this place. The sheets and bed are to die for. Everything you read on their web site is true! Walking distance to everything in town. Don't miss the appetizer and wine bar in the afternoon. This is not a place to stay on the cheap, but we felt it was worth every penny.
Heaven on Earth
My favoriate new hotel! The staff knows how to spoil there guest; from chocolates, to warm homemade cookies, to après ski buffet; everyday a new treat.
Best Hotel Ever!
The Hotel Telluride is among the finest ski-town hotels I have ever visited. Impeccable serviceone of the coolest hotel staffs you'll ever meet. I'll be back for sure.
I arrived at the Hotel Telluride last January under the weather!! The staff brought to my room dry toast and sprite before I could even get in the door! They advised me to drink plenty of water and a doctor was available if needed. Hours later after relaxing in their "Heavenly bed" I was up and about to enjoy my vacation! I could of stayed in that wonderful bed the entire week, but there was lots to see and do. The staff lined up all our activities and gave us a schedule with the details! All the dinner reservations had been made before our arrival and a schedule was provided as well. I gained several pounds needless to say. All the meals were wonderful and no problems with any of the reservations! The hospitality at this hotel is by far the best I've seen in years beside my own hotel! You see, I'm in the business too! I would love to have this hotel as my own! Great job to the staff and you can't pick a better place to call home for you vacation! Southern Hospitality, I think so!

... Cinnamon doughnut and chocolate eclair brought and eaten in quick succession and more wondering around the town. We decided at 13.30pm to do a hike. 2mile down the mountain the ridge trial was fairly easy route, the steep incline at start and the first half mile down was properly the most strenuous part. To get to the start point we had to take the cable car up. The trek down was enjoyable and some the views incredible. We stopped near bottom ...
... to the weatherman it was supposed to snow at 2am for a few hours. I was determined to see snow so I was waiting up for it. Unfortunately it hit about 4am and I was over waiting so instead I went out our back door which led straight to a massive mountain that had leftover snow on it and ran through it throwing snow balls and making snow angels. I had a blast but pretty quickly was drenched and cold. So decided to call it a ...
... they now just looked like small trickles. We could see the Million Dollar Highway winding through the valley as well. The road climbed up to over 12,100 feet! Here we were driving across an open meadow area, above treeline, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains! Up here, there were lots of different types of wildflowers. They were a lot smaller than the flowers we had seen at lower elevations, but looking closely, they ...
... from See Forever are beautiful and I was lucky it was a clear day.
I stopped skiing about 3:30pm and downloaded back to town on the gondola. I then sat in the hot tub until 5pm when I had a few snacks at the hotel happy hour. I then walked around and looked at some of the shops and had dinner at Brown Dog Pizza. The pizza is supposed to be really good, but I opted for the cheesy bread and cheese burger with American cheese. The food was really good, but the atmosphere ...
... hike in the top 2 scenic hikes in north america. I was stopped 15 min from the lakes due to snow. I am determined to get up there. I am coming back later next week w/ snow shoes. I will get there! The scenery on the trail was spectacular.
