Outstanding stay. Great location, central to a ton of telluride attractions. The team was incredible. Felt very safe and appreciated the steps the staff took to ensure covid safety measures were taken and how they adapted their amentities to still provide everything you could need during your stay. Highly recommend staying here if you are in Telluride.

We enjoyed our stay here due to the location right by the mountain and river but still in town. Our room 35 had amazing views! Also the breakfast was included and it was excellent. And a special thanks to Michael for exceptional service and friendliness!

Hotel Columbia is located right in the heart of town and steps from the gondola. The hotel was spotless and everyone on the staff made us feel safe. There are wipes everywhere as well as hand sanitizer. Contactless breakfast room service was included. Our room had many little amenities that made us feel cozy like heated bathroom floors and towel racks. Edward and his staff went out of their way to be polite and ensure our every need was met! We will be back!

Great location. The people working the front were nice and accommodating. The rooms are nicely decorated. We had two issues. One is the air conditioning only blew in the living room of the room and not the bedroom, so the bedroom got incredibly hot at night. There were no screens on the windows so when we opened them to cool off the room, the mosquitoes flew in. So it was either get eaten or sweat. Also no one came to clean the room. Wouldn’t be that big of s deal, but breakfast is only served in the room, so the dirty dishes just sat in the room all day. They charge s premium price, so I do expect premium service.

Hello msa23_2000, We are sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations during your stay. We wish we would have been informed of the a/c issue in the bedroom, as we certainly could have worked to remedy this issue during your stay. Due to COVID19 restrictions, housekeeping can be a challenging issue as well. Unfortunately, our staff can not enter the unit while guests are inside. If our guests prefer service, we ask that they leave their service sign out, and the front desk can set up a time to have the room cleaned. We are sorry that this may have had a negative impact on your stay, but we hope to be able to serve you better in the future.

This hotel is amazing. Perfect location, gorgeous rooms (the shower is awesome!), and the staff are incredibly nice. Pre-pandemic, breakfast was served buffet-style. Now, during the pandemic, guests fill out forms for what they want for breakfast and at what time. Also, my friend and I did forget the business card that has the code to enter the hotel after-hours, but someone is on-call 24/7 and was able to provide that information to us in a timely fashion on a Saturday night. The one thing I have to mention is the noise. There were others that were staying above us that were incredibly loud. We could hear everything, and these guests kept slamming their doors. Fortunately the noise was only for 1 night, but for a dog-friendly hotel this is something worth mentioning if you have a dog who is sensitive to noise. If/when I return to Telluride, I will absolutely stay at Hotel Columbia again.
