“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had viewed the hotel online and the pics did not do it justice. It is a beautiful historic hotel with a very welcoming vibe as soon as you enter the door. We were on a whirlwind trip through Colorado so we were only able to stay one night. The hotel was very clean and the staff was super helpful. Our room overlooked the main road in town and was beautiful at night. If you are worried about street noise they have white noise machines in the room. We did not experience any noise issues. The bed was very comfy and there are lots of extra blankets in the room if you need them. The bathroom floors are heated which is a great touch! We were there in the fall so skiing was not an option for us but there were lots of shops and eateries. The Steaming Bean coffee shop and the Brown Dog Pizza are must trys. They are both within walking distance.

Thank you for your glowing words about the experience here at our Telluride hotel.

Skiing is not integral to the experience of the town. There is so much of the valley and the peaks to explore.

With thanks for you taking the time to write this review,

As you walk through the doors of the New Sheridan, you are somehow magically transported back to the 1800's. You have to search a bit past the well-stocked bar to find the little sign, up some stairs and to the right, that reads "Front Desk". I was greeted by the manager, who showed all of the old west charm that seems to permeate through Telluride. I had chosen a large 3rd floor room facing Colorado Ave (that locals call "Main Street"). Although I had been warned that the bars can be noisy at night, I wanted to be able to look out at main street & the mountains. Perhaps I was there at a quiet time, because I wasn't bothered at all by noise.

Although there is an elevator, I took a perverse pride in climbing the stairs after a day of skiing, and could easily imagine those same stairs being climbed in every western movie you've ever seen.

The room was huge, and the amenities were all delightful - especially the heated floor in the spacious and gracious bathroom. The bed was a bit high and I sort of had to take a running jump to get up to it, but oh my was it worthwhile! There are ski lockers in the basement, with a space for boots... and with heaters for the boots (which unfortunately didn't work during my brief stay).

Parking in Telluride is difficult, so the hotel provides passes to allow you to park on the nearby adjacent streets. The beautiful thing about Telluride is that once I parked the car, I never needed it again until it was time ( sadly ) to leave.

There is one thing to be aware of... the walls are a bit thin, and I could easily hear conversations from adjacent rooms. In a less charming hotel, in a less wonderful town, that would be unacceptable for a hotel costing this much. But somehow, in Telluride, it's easy to overlook.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking main street are larger, and more expensive, and have wonderful views of the to...

Thank you for the passion with which you write. You certainly capture the flavor of a stay at the New Sheridan.

It is a pity no one rode up those stars with the horse - yest it has happened and happens. The "past " is still here at our Telluride hotel.

Thanks for your care,

We arrived in Telluride not thinking we would be able to stay at the New Sheridan, but not only was it available in October, the room was designed quite well and up-dated with excellent furnishings, a beautiful bathroom, and large screen TV in a semi suite set-up. Highly recommended. The restaurant was outstanding.

Your kind comments are greatly appreciated and, yes, in October, we stay open until mid October and then re-open just before Thanksgiving.

Thanks for choosing us among all the varied options for Telluride accommodations.

I was enticed by the historical building and staying in a place that looks like the "Old West," and we wanted to be in Telluride town rather than the vacation built-up Mountain Village. It just felt more real. And it was great! The lift was only a few blocks away, many restaurant and bar choices just down the street or around the block, and it was a nice, comfortable hotel. The noise level on the street at night was sometimes high (there were earplugs in the end table drawer), and the room needs some hooks added in the entry way (where are you supposed to hang up all your ski clothes?). The hot tubs on the roof were nice, and the bed was very comfortable. Certainly recommendable.

Room Tip: If you want it quiet, ask for one not on the street. If you aren't too sensitive, it's nice...

Thank you so much for your kind comments about getting a sense of the "Old West" . If only Rowdy had riiden his horse into the bar while you were here. You can see him on our Facebook Page.

Your suggestion about hooks for more ski clothes, we will take to heart.

Thanks kindly,

The New Sheridan is charming. The historic decor is interesting, the beds are comfortable, the hotel is clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The view rooms are more expensive and can be subject to street noise, so if that's a concern, book an interior room. The hotel has a hot tub on the roof (great when it is snowing), is centrally located, and the Chop House Restaurant is very good.

Room Tip: Interior rooms are quieter, but do not have mountain views.

We have been going to the New Sheridan for the past 8 years and can't imagine staying anywhere else in town (or on the mountain). For my wife and me, it's the sense of home that draws us back every year. The staff are always cordial and helpful! The Chophouse is excellent, and the bar is historic! We would like to make a trip Telluride in the summer, and we know where we are staying!

Room Tip: Interior room away from the bar, 3rd floor if possible.

Close to the lift yet also close to restaurants and shops, newly renovated, very helpful service, reasonable prices and western charm...what more could anyone want in a ski hotel? Stayed in an "interior" room which had windows looking out over rooftops and a corner of the mountain and was far less expensive than a room on the street

How kind you are to comment so precisely about your good experience staying with us.

We are so pleased that Nina Campbell's design work in our newly renovated Telluride inn gave you pleasure, along with the helpful service, reasonable prices and western charm. That sums us up nicely.

You did not comment about the restaurant and bars experience - but that might be covered under western charm.

Many thanks,
