I recently stayed at the Hotel Madeline Telluride and the word 'wow' escaped from my lips numerous times. The scenery is spectacularly spectacular - yes it is that good. The property is awesome and as a ski resort, Telluride is one of the world's best. We had a three-bedroom condo on the top floor that you could live in quite comfortably. The kitchen was very impressive, the lounge room enormous, and each of the three bedrooms had a spacious bathroom. The best thing about my room was the view from the balcony. 'Wow'. One of the photos I took looks too good to be true.
The ski valet made life easy - just handing over my boots in the morning and placing my skis and poles on the snow. They even helped get my boots off at the end of the day.
The dining is also first class - Rev restaurant is classy, and the Smak Bar is perfect for apres ski - with a cosy firepit outside or tables inside. You have to try the Smak Mary - a Bloody Mary combined with a hamburger. Dinner and drinks all in one!
The Madeline has an ice rink just outside, a plethora of restaurants and shops and, of course, ski runs made in heaven.
All there is left to say is 'wow'.
