Awesome hotel! The service was excellent! The restaurant in the hotel is one of the best in Telluride. We stayed here for Christmas and the staff went out of their way to make everything super special. Great locations, breakfast are amazing!

My family has short-term leased a condo in Telluride the past 8 summers, and has one booked for summer '15. Telluride is our happy place, but this review is about the Hotel Columbia only! When we decided to go for our first winter trip between Christmas 2013 and New Year's, we chose Hotel Columbia because its location is ideal. And... More

Great hotel, would highly recommend it. Great location, perfectly suited to ski lifts and easy access to downtown telluride. Free gondola across the street will take you to mountain top dinning and access to hidden village which has shopping and restaurants. A home run

I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Columbia during the Telluride Photo Festival in September/October. The staff was wonderful and helpful, especially when I needed to dry out some clothes (and my cellphone) in a hurry. The food at the restaurant was creative and some dishes were outstanding. Also, it is one of the few places in town with a... More

I had been looking forward to our family sky holiday for the whole year. Even though everyone in our family took their turn with a minor cold the hotel was very comfortable so we all got well quickly. The hotels location is brilliant at the base of the mountain with a beautiful view, a sincere caring staff and a good... More

Hi Frank! It was such a pleasure to host you and your lovely family. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You're exactly right - we're a boutique, privately owned hotel so we love the unique character of our property and the rooms. We can't wait to have you again for the 2015 holidays...if not sooner!

Absolutely cant beat the location for directly accross the street access to the Gondola & Ski Rental Shop. Restaurants are just steps away, as well as the supermarket and liqour store. For convenience on foot, it is amazing. The room was super cozy with fireplace, comfy bed and high end bath. I wouldnt stay at any other hotel in town... More

Great location. Small quaint hotel with very friendly staff. Short walking distance to restaurants, shops and bars. The only thing missing is that there isn't a hot tub! Breakfast was also amazing, great variety every morning.

Thanks for staying at the Hotel Columbia and leaving your review! Next time you stay, request room 26 or 43 and enjoy a private hot tub and gorgeous east-facing deck. We hope to see you again soon! More

We loved the Hotel Columbia, not so much it's restaurant, the Cosmopolitan Restaurant, but I will get to that shortly. The hotel Columbia in Telluride is unique because it is literally across the street from the main Gondola that one needs to use to go anywhere. The hotel, which is right on the beautiful river and resembles a castle, is... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you loved the hotel, and can only apologize on behalf of the Cosmopolitan.

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in!! It's right across the street from the gondola to take you to the slopes. The staff are wonderful!

This was my fourth trip to Hotel Columbia, and I will keep going back. Staff is very friendly, hotel has balconies and overlooks the gondola, beds are comfortable, Cosmo is downstairs, and you can walk anywhere in town from your room. Highly recommend. However, I would skip the free breakfast here and just go to Baked in Telluride.
