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.

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. We will pass along your comments to the restaurant owner. Based on what you wrote, it sounds like you may have been in room 22 or 32 - those turret windows... 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!

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.

Thank you for the great review! We are really lucky to share the restaurant space, and you're correct - our location at the Gondola cannot be beat! I hope we are able to host you again soon. More

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
