You’ll have lots to consider as you plan your trip to Hotel Madeline Telluride. Here are five things to know about the luxury hotel:
1. There is a ski rental shop on hotel property. It does not get more convenient than that. You can even reserve your skis, boots, poles and helmets online before you arrive.
2. You don’t need a car. If you’re flying into Telluride and plan to stay at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and the vicinity the whole time, there’s no reason to rent a car because most everything is walkable or accessible by gondola. However, if you fly into Montrose, you’ll need to rent a car for the 90-minute drive to Telluride.3. You must call for turndown service. If you like for your room to be tidied before turning in, you can call for turndown service, since it is not automatic.
4. There are kitchens. We were surprised to find kitchens in our deluxe guestroom, and wished we had brought snacks to store in the fridge. Stop along the way for groceries so you can take advantage of them.
5. The gondola and a community fire pit are practically next door. Walk 30 seconds out of the luxury hotel’s back door and you’ll find the gondola and a fire pit where community bonfires take place some nights — check with the hotel’s reception desk for details. Both are ultra convenient.
