Hotel Telluride is very nice. Upscale enough to be comfortable, but not too luxurious to feel out of place in Telluride. They've done a good job with the western mountain decor theme.
King deluxe room is good if you are there for several days. A medium-sized sitting area with loveseat and upholstered chair, desk and side chair. Nice bathrooms, hot water arrives quickly. In room small refrigerator, microwave, bar sink, small coffee pot. Stocked with dishes for two. Also an in room safe, bathrobes and slippers, and, best of all, a humidifier! The only things that would make the room even better are 1) night stands with drawers instead of small bedside tables (not enough room for a book, water glass, etc without putting the phones and clocks on the floor), and 2) a lighter weight bedspread. The one on the bed when we were there was lovely but so heavy it kept falling off the end of the bed in the middle of the night.
Another welcome touch for those on a multi-day (or week) road trip: there is a very clean guest laundry with modern appliances.
Service is top notch. All are young local kids that are competent, friendly, try hard and deliver. Delightful. The little “Nook” breakfast/simple dinner spot is just right. Cold breakfast ($8.95) not that great. Ho-hum pastries, bread, bagels, yogurt, cereal in packages. Sliced fresh fruit but during our visit it was pretty tasteless. However, the hot breakfast ($14.95) is quite good. It includes all cold items plus sausage, bacon, pancakes, home fries in a warming server and fresh made-to-order omelettes that were excellent. There is a nice happy hour from 4:30 – 6:00 every day with 2 for 1 well drinks. Good bar snacks and a limited but very tasty dinner menu. We had fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken and seared salmon with grilled asparagus. Excellent. And, since restaurants in the village are a 10 – 15 minute walk away it’s nice to have the Nook as an alternative when you’re too tired or lazy from the day’s activities to venture out. Note, however, that the hotel has a private driver on call from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm that will take you anywhere in the village and fetch you when you’re ready to return. Now that’s a nice touch.
