With more and more travelers bringing their dogs with them, it's great to find a hotel that not only welcomes dogs, but goes out of their way to show them a good time! Even if you don't have a dog (go rescue one!!) this hotel's attitude towards its guests is one of the reasons we would definitely go back.
The lobby is huge and the warm (even if it's artificial) fire makes you feel as if you had entered a Swiss chalet. It rained the entire time we were in Telluride, so coming back from dinner or shopping made us feel warm in our hearts. There is a sign that identifies the newly arriving canines, and a water bowl. There is a $100 charge for your dog(s) to stay, no matter how many days or how many dogs your bring along. Yes, $100 for the entire visit.
The desk staff double as concierge staff, so when we got up too late to enjoy the buffet breakfast provided in the tiny lounge, they were able to tell us about a place open for breakfast until 3 pm. We parked on the street just across from the hotel (saving the $20 a day parking charge) but we were there at a time when the town was not crowded. They have a shuttle service that takes you anywhere in town you want to go, especially nice after a bottle of wine at dinner or in bad weather.
The rooms themselves were nicely appointed--Aveda toiletries, wine glasses and coffee cups (although there was 24 hour tea, coffee, water, and ice tea available in the lobby). They give you a choice of pillows if you want different or extra ones, and there was a small balcony with Trex rocking chairs.
If we had a minor complaint, it would be that the two hot tubs were in a very public area near the entrance to the hotel (just outside the small fitness center). We didn't feel like we had any privacy there, and one of the two hot tubs was an older model. It would be worth the expense to replace with a newer one, and to put up a lattice screen of some kind.
But their kindnesses toward animals, their friendliness toward guests, and the setting within walking distance to shopping makes this a wonderful place to call home away from your home.
