The Hotel Telluride
Travel Blogs from Telluride
Telluride, CO: We drove to Telluride from Phoenix first week of October. Ideally, this is not a journey you want to drive. It goes through the infamous highway 666 in the Navajo ntion. And as luck would have it, we ran into car trouble in the middle of the desert. The drive took us through Tuba - an interesting place with a lot of pre-historic …
We worked our way up past Mountain Village, a suburb of Telluride where Larry and Kathy stayed, and parked in a National Forest Campground in a copse of Aspen trees. Inside the trailer it was like being in a tree house with beautiful scenes of Aspen forest filling every window. Outside our dining room windows we could see our own pond through the Aspen boles with ducks coming to visit.

Due to our spot on the eastern slope of California Pass, the sunrise was somewhat reluctant. Around 7, we got some water boiling and made tea and granola and ran around to the surrounding mine shafts to keep warm. After the sun had chased the chills away, we packed up camp and climbed up over the pass and down into California ...

I finally made it to Telluride! I had been wanting to go there for years. Even before I started skiing, the town has always called to me. The only thing stopping me from going was always that the return flights back to Boston were poor options; this time I just decided to do it anyway despite the not so great options.
You can opt to fly into either Telluride which is 15 minutes from town or you can choose to fly into Montrose which is 1.5 hours away. Due to what I had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hotel Telluride
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)
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.
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!
