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!

We left the city that never sleeps while it was sleeping. Yep, there's about 20 mins between 4.45 and 5.05am on Tuesdays when all except Aussie tourists and limo drivers are awake. Limo to queens then the 6.30 to Denver and propeller plane to Durango, CO then hire car for a spectacular drive through the mountains. Sad to say goodbye to manhattan but the mountains are ...
... We were taken with the quaint, cool shops along the main drag. Everybody was out and about, either dining outside or having coffee at a cafe. The area is noted for the winter skiing but it certainly is most satisfying as a summer hang as well.
... the mining of alluvial (loose) deposits for minerals. There's not much in Placerville these days, though it does have a U.S. Post Office, with an 81430 ZIP code. In Placerville, we turn east on CO-145, and 15 miles later, we are in the mountain town of Telluride, famous for skiing in the winter and its many festivals in the summer. Telluride sits in a box canyon, at 8,750 feet. Telluride is a former silver mining camp, founded in 1879 ...
It was a gorgeous drive up to our campsite in the Rockies, the views were spectacular of the snowy mountains! It was a pretty chilled day, when we arrived at camp we just hung around, I read a book, then it was our turn to cook dinner. We did a veggie chilli which nobody complained about to my face, so success! Haha. After dinner we went down the road to orvis hot springs which are natural springs fed by the tectonic activity of the Rockies and they are ...
