I can't say enough good things about the Hotel Columbia. My husband and I drove into town spontaneously early this month and went first to another hotel, which was booked. They recommended the Hotel Columbia. We were greeted warmly when we walked in and the experience was that way for the entire stay. The manager gave us our room keys and as we were walking down the street to get our car, he actually chased after us and gave us new room keys, telling us that one of his favorite rooms became available and he wanted us to have it. Amazing. The room was on the fourth floor, with a balcony and view of the mountain, with a living room and bedroom and small kitchen. Very nicely decorated, extremely clean, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom with steam shower. The location was perfect. Right in town, with the gondola directly across from the hotel. The breakfast in the morning is the best I have ever had at a hotel, and was far better than most restaurants I have been to. We also had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and it was outstanding. We will definitely return to stay here again and look forward to visiting them in the winter.
