Highly recommend staying at Hotel Columbia we had a fantastic stay. Kate and Travis and others made you feel very welcome and we're always happy to assist you. The hotel is very well located in Telluride across the street from the gondola and short stroll to the Main Street where shops and cafes etc are. The hotel is very clean...

This hotel was truly a gem. Small enough to feel like home. The front desk could not do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The restaurant in the hotel was delicious. Full cooked breakfast every morning. In the heart of town. A true gem.

A great location for summer/winter tourist right next to the gondola. But also business visitors to Telluride - like me - will enjoy the quiet rooms and very personable service. The restaurant is excellent and popular with the locals, too. So all you want from a "one-stop solution".

My wife and I chose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Telluride and a must on our list was to stay at Hotel Columbia based on a previous stay during ski season. The hotel is almost in the heart of downtown Telluride and just across the street from the town Gondola. The river trail is pretty much at its...

We stayed at Hotel Columbia for two nights for a concert. WORST VALUE EVER. Directly outside the suite were three massive backhoes working 6 days a week 7am - 6pm digging for construction on ski lifts. BEEP-BEEP-BEEP. See photo. GRIND-GRIND. This had obviously been going on for BEEP-BEEP-BEEP weeks. BEEP-BEEP-GRIND-GRIND-BEEP. All three of the backhoes beeped constantly at slightly BEEP-BEEP...

Madam, I recall your visit and realize the construction the ski area commissioned was untimely. I realize it’s no consolation but that was the final weekend of the project. The frustration you expressed with the property even prior to checking in is what prompted me to offer you a full refund. I have never in my career made a suggestion...

Great service, nice location and the beds are huge! There are walking trails nearby and the park is a 5 min walk. Only suggestion would be to replace the carpet... old, outdated and a bit too worn. We didn't eat here but the restaurant looked nice.
