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!

There was anticipation the morning we left for Ridgway State Park. It was to be the place that the four of us set up camp in order to visit Ouray and Telluride. There was only time for a day trip to both places, but that was ok. This gave us time to walk the main streets of both towns and visit some yummy eating/drinking establishments. Each town has that distinct small-town-looking Main Street with cute, kitschy shops; great hipster watching; and a mountain ...

We drove up hill from Ridgway 3800 feet and up the side of Hastings Mesa 2500 feet...nearly a half mile up. During that 25 miles we saw 4 other vehicles and a road grader that took the whole road. We had to follow him to a switchback where we could pass ...

It was a nice leisurely day of sightseeing while driving. It is hard to beat the sights in the Colorado Rockies although we heard that we need to see the Canadian Rockies.
