I was looking for THE best place to go for my b'day - was it weeks of research? or just plain luck? whatever - Camel's Garden was, indeed, perfect. The hotel's staff can't be paid enough for the good will they generate, the room was LARGE and ours was creekside - every so quiet - with a CD player and patio and gorgeous bathroom - and get this: Plaster walls - no kidding. We walked everywhere or took the gondola which was right next to the hotel while our car was parked in the garage for free.
Matt, who worked the front desk, became like a friend - thank you Matt for your kind and thoughtful service.
Oh! and the rooftop hot tub was amazing at night under the milky way. Extra towels and plush robes and the steam room were just lovely accessories to the experience.
I want to return to Telluride but only if we can stay at Camel Gardens again.
