I took my 9 year old son for a father/son ski weekend over MLK holiday 2009. Took the shuttle from Montrose Airport to Telluride. It takes about 90 minutes to travel 65 miles. Here are my thoughts:
1. Location: You cannot beat this location. The hotel is 20 steps from the main gondola and lift 8. It is also 1-2 blocks from the main shopping/eating street. I highly recommend staying in town and avoiding the "Mountain Village." Mountain Village is a purpose built resort above town. The Town of Telluride is beautiful, with great restaurants and shops, all within walking distance. No need for a car.
2. Convenience: This goes with location, but the hotel, in addtion to being convenient in terms of location, also houses the lift ticket sales office, the ski rental shop, the spa, and a nice breakfast/lunch/happy hour spot.
3. Amenities: The hotel has a nice outdoor hot tub and a bar area where they serve free wine/cheese/snacks every day from 4:00 pm to 6:00 p.m.
4. Room: We opted for a large suite on the second floor, just outside of the happy hour/snack area. The room had a beautiful bathroom with large tub and nice shower. The bedroom was large and had a great bed. The living room had a nice pullout couch and wet bar/refrigerator. The view of the mountain was spectacular.
5. Staff: The staff at the Camel's Garden was awesome. Very friendly, helpful, and fun.
This hotel is a great place to stay in Telluride. This is a great ski town with great views.
