We stayed at the Hotel Columbia in late November soon after they opened for the winter season.
I wanted a location in downtown Telluride as I prefer the atmosphere over Mountain Village.
The hotel's location cannot be beat. It is central to everything Telluride. Parking is reasonable at 20.00 USD a night but it is very limited and you will need to leave your keys at the front desk which is a bit of a pain.
The manager Rachel Loomis was very helpful with pre check in information as we were arriving late in the evening. Most of the other staff was very friendly especially one of the front desk managers in the morning: I think his name was Ben (?). He had a big beard and was super nice and helpful. One of the other women at the front was pretty cold and it didn't seem like she liked her job or wanted to be there. She could barely say hi or good morning during breakfast.
The breakfast which is included is nice but wasn't quite what was described on the website. There was toast, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and a daily bread with milk, juice and coffee. I assumed this was because it was early season and the restaurant wasn't in full swing.
The only complaints I have were that we made the reservations online and I missed the part about it being a pet friendly hotel. We must have had a dog room because my fiance and I were sneezing the whole time. Not a big deal but kind of a pain. I also overheard the front desk saying they had to put a last minute dog reservation in a non pet room so I guess be careful when you are making the reservation if you are severely allergic. I am not sure how careful they are of keeping pet free rooms truly free.
Overall the rooms were very large for the price and I was very happy with the stay. I would definitely stay again.
