We love the Columbia. This was our fourth stay and it felt like coming home, The staff is amazing and helpful, the best bar and restaurant in town and how do you argue with location. We have stayed in many different rooms and I think this last visit might have been our favorite with the mount an views and our... More

We came in last minute for a snowstorm in late February. The price was pretty ridiculous that particular weekend, but it was the last room available in town, so we didn't have many options. We ended up being very happy with our stay. The rooms are well appointed and spacious, with niceties such as heated bathroom floors. The location can't... More

This was our second time returning for a week at Hotel Columbia. Again we were delighted. The Hotel staff is always right there to help. We had a standard king room overlooking the mountain. Our only complaint was that our room was too hot requiring either to open the windows or at night leave the AC on low. The location... More

The location could not be better in Telluride for skiing. It is right across the street from the gondola. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are luxurious. Right near the lobby is one of the best restaurants in Telluride, The Cosmopoltian. In the morning Hotel columbia serves a wonderful hot breakfast to get your engine going. I... More

This is a European style hotel located next to the gondola. It has a European style hot breakfast buffet daily that is awesome. We had breakfast at the hotel every day but one. The rooms are luxurious and the service is top rate. This is one of my favorite hotels. They happily store your skis and snowboards for you. The... More

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

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!
