We've stayed at multiple places in Telluride and really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Columbia. Travis greeted us when we arrived. All of the staff were very gracious while we were there. As others have stated, the location next to the gondola can't be beat. The room was great with one exception. The Murphy bed squeaked with any movement.... More

My wife and I had the luxury of 4 nights at this lovely hotel this past week. The decor is comfortable, the location is the best if you are skiing, the continental breakfast is great and the Cosmo restaurant is excellent. The happy hour looked awesome, but we never got there as we were shopping and bar hopping. Can't wait... More

Would rate this hotel a 4.5 if I could. Friendly staff and awesome location. Literally 50 steps from gondola. Great ski locker room made it very easy to prep and get to the slopes. Everything in town is within walking distance. No need for rental car (we used Telluride Express from airport). Only disappointment were the breakfasts (which are free... More

Charming hotel, very well appointed, great service and 500 feet from the Gondola! The rooms are really large with great views. A little noisy from the street traffic because it is so close to the Gondola but really not an issue. The only real issue is the hotel is in serious need of an internet upgrade! Don't count on getting... More

Thank you for writing a review of your recent stay. I have taken your notes to heart and we are looking into why the internet service was so fickle. Turns out we need to add a few more connectivity points, which will be addressed next week. I greatly appreciate your feedback, and sincerely hope we can host you again! More

The hotel and staff were great. We had a fantastic trip and they were always helpful. I would certainly stay here again. It is well located to both downtown and the gondola. Rental shops were across the street so this made it easy

This was our 2nd time visiting Telluride and our 2nd stay at Hotel Columbia. We loved it the 1st time and were not disappointed this January. The location of the hotel to the town and gondola is fantastic, and the views from our windows are breath-taking! The complimentary breakfast is fantastic and healthy, it fuels our family for a day... More

Our second time staying at Hotel Columbia and it's still an amazing boutique hotel with a friendly staff and incredible location. The price is a bit high but so is everything else in Telluride. The breakfast at Columbia is awesome! I highly recommend this hotel for a short or long stay.

I told Kate, the general manager, that I loved this place so much I wasn't going to review it. I am normally generous in sharing reviews to help guide people to places that have earned it. In this case, I was feeling very selfish about this gem of a hotel. The staff is professional, helpful and pleasant 24/7. The rooms... More

This hotel is right next to the gondola and in the heart of town. Easy access to slopes during ski season and great summer spot as you can easily walk anywhere in town. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and updated bathrooms. The halls are a bit tight and the views are limited but overall a great place to... More

Hotel Columbia is definitely a good place to stay. Nice property and you can't beat the location. I have only one complaint. The last time we stayed, about 2 years ago, the staff was so friendly. They made the stay really pleasant. We looked forward to talking with them over breakfast. This year they were ice cold. No conversation. They... More
