Telluride’s European-style boutique hotel
59 Rooms / 2 Suites
The Hotel Telluride scores high when it comes to location because the charming property enjoys the benefits of being situated in the town of Telluride without having to contend with any mayhem. (Yes, even the remote and beautiful mountain town of T-ride can become noisy, especially on summer nights when windows are opened wide to allow the cool alpine air to billow in.)
With the center of town just a short walk or shuttle ride away, The Hotel Telluride gives you easy access to the plethora of restaurants, bars, shops, art galleries and outdoor activities the old mining town is known for.
Whether they’re headed to dine, shop, recreate or take in one of the town’s renowned festivals, hotel guests love ambling through Telluride’s National Historic District or strolling along the river path year-round. The ski mountain and Telluride’s free gondola are just down the street, and there’s a grocery store incredibly close to the luxury hotel.
Best of all, The Hotel Telluride makes you feel like you’ve entered your own private enclave. Punctuated by comfy couches and armchairs, luxurious draperies and rugs, accent lamps, wooden tables and a stunning wood-paneled vaulted ceiling, the lobby exudes a distinctive European feel, reminiscent of a large chalet in the Alps. Indeed, it’s a heartwarming place to return to at the end of the day.
All of The Hotel Telluride’s units boast pillow-top mattresses, sumptuous bedding and goose-down pillows. There is also a balcony or deck in each room, most of which offer mountain views. Slippers and AC — both rarities in Telluride — also add to the comfort.
Each room type comes fully equipped with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The timeless mountain elegance is enhanced with the marble counters and travertine floors of the bathrooms, and thick terry robes and Aveda amenities create a luxurious bath experience, particularly welcome after a day on the slopes or a hike up the mountain.
Environmentally conscious travelers will be happy to learn that each room has been LEED certified with a Silver rating.
The Special Amenities
Excellent service need not be considered an amenity; however, at the Telluride hotel, the personable staff greatly enhances a stay. From the driver of the hotel’s complimentary shuttle to the front desk agent, the hands-on approach leaves you feeling very much at home.
This attentiveness extends to four-legged guests as well. Since Telluride is a dog lover’s town, The Hotel Telluride has made it its mission to be pet friendly.
Adventure awaits just outside the door of the boutique hotel, and hopping on one of its complimentary cruiser bikes is one of the best ways to find it. You can also have the front desk book an activity for you.
After a day in the great outdoors, consider reserving a spa treatment within the hotel (through a relationship with Spa Concierge) or just soak in one of the outdoor hot tubs with a frosty beverage.
You also can make the lobby your luxury basecamp and sip on lemonade and iced tea (hot chocolate in the winter), nibble on cookies while playing games, listen to live music or just pick up the lobby guitar to give it a strum. It’s a great gathering place for receptions, festival events and even special dinners at the Chef’s Table.
Speaking of which, chef Sergio Gonzalez knows how to turn it on for breakfast and dinner. From Hilda’s biscuits and gravy to Colorado hanger steak au poivre and fettuccine al porcini, all menu items are served within The Hotel Telluride Lobby & Bar.
Local and regional craft beers are showcased, along with an international selection of wines and a fun lineup of cocktails, including the Mountain Jam, concocted from Pearl plum vodka, St-Germain and fresh grapefruit.
