“A comfortable, relaxing stay that's like home- but better”
Reviewed 1 March 2010

Conveniently located across the street from the gondola, the Hotel Columbia offers all of the amenities in an intimate, low-key environment. The rooms provide amazing views of the mountain, and are beautifully decorated and comfortable as well. The suites are spacious and luxurious- complete with a private hot tub on the balcony that is especially spectacular on a snowy night. The complimentary breakfast offers a lot of variety and is very tasty- the perfect send-off for a day of skiing. Lastly, the locker room on the ground level, with its heated boot-warmers, is indicative of the unique and exceptional care given to guests of the Hotel Columbia.

We stayed at the Hotel Columbia for 1 night during a very stormy weekend in Telluride. We brought our 45 lb black lab with us. This hotel "gets it". It's beautifuly decorated, they are very accomodating, they love pets, I mean - they even offered to watch our dog while we skied all day....How many hotels would do that? Our room was great. I will say that there were some doors slamming and some noise in the hallway at 6:00 a.m. Not sure what it was - maybe other guests leaving for the airport, but I was awaken by the noise. The thin walls were in the bathroom for sure. i could hear the toiliet next door flush and the guy peeing...but that did not bother me because obviously - you don't sleep in the bathroom. The tub was awesome! the shower was awesome! and our room was just great. We parked right there, and we were literally 20 steps from the gondola. Food and drinks were great. I recommend this hotel highly!!! worth every penny if you have a pet.

Just returned from a ski trip to Telluride, where we stayed at the Hotel Columbia. The location is the best - only a few steps from the gondola. We stayed in a roomy, well decorated suite with a living room, kitchenette and 1 1/2 baths overlooking the slopes. The service was terrific - the staff went out of their way to be accomodating. I much prefer staying in town to Mountain Village, where we stayed on our last trip, as most of the good restaurants and activities are in Telluride. Their Cosmopolitan Restaurant is one of the best in town. An added bonus was free lift tickets as part of the package. We will make this hotel our base in Telluride from now on.

Stayed at a gorgeous 1 Bedroom Suite the week of January 18th. Room overlooked the river, the gondola, and had an amazing view up the mountain. The Cosmo restaurant served an amazing sushi appetizer and the staff was phenomenal. Every morning we had fresh fruit, bagels, pastries and a different quiche to keep us on our toes.

The rooms were perfect, the staff was great, and the location has to be the best spot in town. Would stay here every chance I get.

Love Telluride and Love the Hotel Columbia!!

We had a comfortable room with a nice view at Hotel Columbia - great bed. The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant in the hotel had a nice menu too. The hotel is nicely located in the town of Telluride; conveniently located next to the Gondola. The best part of the Hotel was the friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel to a friend visiting Telluride.

Just returned from Hotel Columbia and had an excellent experience. Everyone was unbelievably friendly and accommodating. I found the hotel to be a great value since breakfast was included and we also took advantage of the winter special which included free lift tickets. When there was an issue with our fireplace, they upgraded us to a larger room. The location is right across from the gondola. When you are awake, you can hear the gondola a little, but it is not loud enough to wake you when you are sleeping, so I found the location to be very convenient. I will definitely stay here when I return to Telluride.
