“Now the Hotel Madeline...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

We had an excellent time during our stay at the Hotel Capella - Madeline, during which time the hotel changed management companies. It was a bit disconcerting to hear the week before beginning my stay that the Capella was planning to shut down four days into my trip, ( I had already been charged for an eight day stay.) Needless to say, I was among the many people who were very relieved that the hotel remained open after Feb. 1. The staff was exceedingly professional the whole time, and continued to provide the fine service this hotel is noted for.
The property is beautiful. With the exception of a couple of curious architectural design choices, It presents an elegant conjunction of old and new world style. My balcony room was comfortable. I was extremely fond of the granite used throughout. the room and bath, which had a large shower, soaking tub, double sinks & water closet.
Other pluses and minuses regarding the stay:
+ Excellent location in the center of Mountain Village, across from the gondola to town.
+ The food in the restaurant and bar was very well prepared and presented.
+ Great hotel bar, (even if we had it mostly to ourselves!)
+ One of the best massages ever from the Spa.
- Very odd placement of ski rental area - They should be near the ski in-ski out access point, not a hundred yards down a cobblestone corridor.
- Labyrinthine Spa layout was a bit confusing
- The kitchen was out of menu items and other things they should have had in stock. (Out of Breakfast Tea day after day... ?)
- Housekeeping was a tad inconsistent in the middle of the week, with the exception of turndown service whch arrived consistently after 8 pm. (They'd slide a 'Sorry we missed you card under the door if the privacy light was lit.)

Overall, the stay was delightful and we wish the Madeline the best of luck, and hope to return for future stays.

We recently returned from a wonderful week at the Capella (now known as Hotel Madeline) in Telluride, Co. The employees were going through a difficult transition period, due to the hotel going into foreclosure proceedings, but we would never have known it if we had not read it in the paper. These people did not know if they were going to have a job the following week, and yet they provided some of the best service that we have received in our many years of traveling. Not a single employee mentioned their problems to us, and they maintained their pleasant, service-oriented attitudes throughout our stay. There was not one occasion during our week there that we were not greeted with a smile, and an inquiry as to how our day was, and/or a request as to whether or not they could do anything for us. Every request that we made or heard others make was satisfied immediately, including a few people asking for help with putting on their ski boots. We will return to this hotel next year, and we will hope that they have retained most of those unforgettable employees.
