This is a great location for two families on a ski tour. The location was fabulous, as was the dinner and bar. Access to the gondola could not be easier which is a key consideration with little peeps in tow. We would love to return.

My excellent experience at the Hotel Columbia began way before my arrival. The people that handled my inquires regarding special rates on the website, the town, and ground transportation from Montrose were by far the most genuinely nice people. Both transportation companies had spotty reviews - the hotel offered to make the reservations and assured me that all would be...

If you want to stay in Telluride rather than Mountain Village, Hotel Columbia is the place to be. It's prime location, elegantly rustic accommodations, friendly staff and morning breakfast buffets at The Cosmopolitan conveniently located downstairs perfectly meet a ski vacation criteria.

I'm not sure if I've ever stayed in a better place. The staff was very friendly, the food was great and the room very comfortable. The location made getting to the slopes quick and easy. Local restaurants are within a short walking distance or you can just jump on the Galloping Goose.

We had a small group meeting for a ski and business event and this was the perfect spot. Not a big hotel, but a very nice hotel and the nicest staff you could ask for. It's literally across the street from the Gondola and chairlift. And if you need a meeting room, the Cellar is a fantastic spot for groups...

Hotel Columbia was a very charming place to stay. The location was perfect, with the gondola across the street and main street just a couple blocks away. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Cosmo which was great! I highly recommend staying at Hotel Columbia.
