Ice House Lodge
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Telluride
Reviewed 8 February 2012

My husband and I really liked our week stay at the Ice House. We would have liked having a small fridge, but we used the snow on the deck. Coffee was good and they did have a fairly good variety of breakfast foods if you do carbs which I don't. I could have used a boiled egg, but they did have peanut butter and always there were fresh apples and bananas. The bagels and doughnuts were varied and very fresh each morning from just up the street. The room was large and it had an updated bath with tub and shower. This hotel was 2 min. walk to the main gondola and one lift. Everything was in walking distance. Rooms were kept clean and I slept well. Great sauna, pool and hot tub and nice white robes. The desk staff were always very helpful. I liked having the bar/breakfast area nearby for hanging with friends or just with Rico, the bartender and Belle his dog.

We greatly enjoyed the hotel - felt very much like being in Scandinavia. We stayed in a junior suite which had a microwave and refrigerator but no coffee maker. TVs in bedroom and living room were flat panel wall mounted but did not swivel. Breakfast was a mixture of good (fruits and yogurt) and bad (stale bread and pastries). Location is great; free garage parking is great; staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: mini suite seemed a great value (only $10 more than standard room) and has nice view of river.

We were here for the bluegrass festival, the venue of which was a short walk away. The hotel is beautifully appointed, quiet, friendly and very comfortable. Everyone is so willing to help--Rachel and Sofia when we lost our room keys for the umpteenth time or needed a parking pass late at night, Rico, who actually went home to get us safety pins when the town stores were all out. (By the way, he has a VERY romantic, intimate bar scene going at night.) Breakfast served on the third floor in the solarium---I stuffed on huge NY-style bagels (onion and garlic too) with cream cheese and Starbucks coffee then walked it off with a dog walk on the riverbank close by. Yes, dog friendly. Oh, and did I mention the beds?????

Room Tip: close to the river

We visit Telluride frequently since we have family who live there. Have stayed at several places but keep coming back to the Ice House. Very nice rooms (we stayed in a suite this time), with an indoor/outdoor pool, jacuzzi, and steam room. Right in the middle of town, just steps from the gondola. Newly renovated so everything is very nice.

Travelled to Telluride during July 10 on the recommendation of a friend and what a recommendation it was, spectacular. Hotel is nice clean and well located in town and is situated only 2 mins walk from the gondola. The hotel has no frills or spills but its all about the location and views of Telluride itself. Got a very good walk in rate from the Telluride tourist information office on the entrance to the town.

We spent five nights at the Ice House Lodge in early January 2010 and were extremely satisfied. The location of this hotel cannot be beat. You are literally one block from Telluride Sports (ski rental) and the Gondola to Mountain Village. In addition, the Lodge is walking distance to all of the restaurants in downtown Telluride. The rooms were clean and spacious with recently updated bathrooms. The accommodations include a continental breakfast that is worth its weight in gold. The spread includes granola and other cereals, fresh fruit, fresh juice, Starbucks coffee, yogurt, toast, and fantastic homemade bagels and doughnuts from "Baked in Telluride" -- a local bakery. The staff at the Ice House goes out of its way to make you feel at home. The star of the show is Rico Gardner, the lodge's honorary MC. He is the barkeep at the quaint watering hole on the second floor which is aptly named "Rico's." Rico is joined by his partner in crime, Belle, a sweet little bulldog who is Telluride's honorary mascot. If you see Rico, tell him Brian from Philly (now Texas) says "Yo."

The Ice House has been the standby hotel that I recommend to all friends who visit Telluride since I briefly lived there from 1994-1996. Now, it's 2010, and it does not disappoint. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The spa with it's indoor/outdoor heated pool and tubs is amazing. You feel like you are the only person staying there, until you need something. They have a wonderful continental breakfast in the morning to get you headed to the slopes, and you are only one block from the Gondola and Lift Chair 8. If you're looking for pomp, circumstance, a concierge, crowds or noise, Ice House is not for you. But if you want to stay at a nice, quiet hotel that's in the middle of all of the action when you step outside, Icehouse is it. The Icehouse Lodge remains the best hotel in Telluride.
