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

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! So helpful and knowledgeable about the town, places to see, and things to do. We were escorted to our room and were so surprised to find a huge hot tub on our private... More

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.

Loved Hotel Columbia's chic but causal atmosphere. The staff was extremely pleasant and very accommodating. We were there in early Oct. After browsing shops it was a pleasure sitting by the lobby fireplace relaxing. The Gondola and San Miguel River is right across the street from the hotel. A perfect location with breath taking views. Cosmopolitan Restaurant was the perfect... More

Location is ideal. Right next to the gondola and two short blocks from Main St. Telluride. Service is first-class. Rachel and her staff are genuinely helpful, friendly, hard working and the ultimate professionals. They take customer service to the next level and make you feel right at home.

I can only echo the sentiment of other reviewers about a great experience. The hotel is a small (21 room) boutique hotel and it each, or many, of the rooms differ. If your budget permits I would reserve a slightly larger room, or splurge on a beautiful suite. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location is great. We... More

The Hotel Columbia is the closest to 5 STAR hotel you'll find in the town of Telluride. Fantastic location - right across the street to the high speed gondola and easy walking to shopping and restaurants. On-site valet parking which is a very big deal in Telluride - parking on the street can be difficult. We had the Premium King... More

We stayed over only one night on our trip of Colorado. The parking costs extra but worth it especially as Telluride was extra busy due to a festival about to take place. Hotel Columbia is directly across the road from the free gondolas which take you up to one station then down again to the mountain village. Our room and... More
