Staff was so friendly - treated us like family - never asked us to sign for breakfast -- greeted us always. Very convenient - 10-15 steps from gondola and close to town restaurants & eating - nice kitchens too

My wife an I recently visited telluride on a 5 day ski trip and we stayed at the Hotel Columbia in Room #36. This was an excellent choice. The Hotel is located right next to the mountain village gondola and a very short walk to downtown. The breakfast was hearty and made for a perfect start to a full day...

Thank you for your great review! I'm glad you were able to utilize all the amenities we offer in that room and you are correct - the mattress and all the bedding on the murphy beds is consistent with the rest of the property. We hope to see you again soon.

Great location and the staff was very personable and professional. Morning breakfast was terrific and ski and boot storage very convenient! Access to the Cosmopolitian restaurant is definitely a plus! Will definitely return in the future!

This was a quick getaway for my wife and I and we absolutely loved Hotel Columbia. Yes, Room 44 is small but it was perfect for the 2 of us. Kendra was the first staff person we had met and she was GREAT! The breakfast in the morning were absolutely perfect. We will be back.

Your review of room 44 is accurate - a smaller room with a slightly compromised view. We will be sure to get you in a deluxe room for your next trip! Thank you for your comments about Kendra - she's a gem! We look forward to having you back again soon.

The hotel is in a great location at the base of the mountain across the street from the gondola. The hotel staff is very accommodating and friendly! Has one of Tellurides finest restaurants in its lobbying!

We can't say enough good things about Hotel Columbia and its staff. Really, the hotel is its staff. As others have noted, the location is perfect (we're town people), the amenities are outstanding. Chad and The Cosmo have had our hearts for a long time...too many wonderful dinners to count. However, the cherry on top of all of that is...

Had 7 days skiing in Telluride for the first time. This hotel is in the more interesting old town rather than the blander Mountain Village. The staff were all genuinely friendly and always helpful. Location is amazingly convenient: ski lifts opposite and a place to hire skis no distance away. There is a ski room on the ground floor with...

This hotel is fantastic for easy ski access. Addionally, you're already in town for Apres and dinner! We've previously stayed in Mountain Village (which is equally as great for different reasons) however liked staying in town for the convenience. Hotel Columbia staff is great. HIGHLY recommend staying in room 26 which has a private hot tub on the balcony. The...

We stayed here for our wedding in January. We had a wonderful stay. The room was small, but comfortable and well appointed. Customer service went above and beyond and the free breakfast was the best free breakfast I've ever had at any hotel. Hotel is located within yards of the Telluride gondola as well as shops and restaurants.

This is a very nice hotel, in a great location in Telluride. My husband and I have stayed there many times. It is right across from the gondola which takes you up to the Ski Village. I knew when I booked our room, there is a 10 day prior to arrival cancellation policy. We were going to ski in January....

I recall your situation and wish I could have been more flexible. Please know if we had rebooked the night (which unfortunately we did not), a refund would have been possible. The best recommendation I can offer for future weather sensitive trips would be travel insurance, which we offer for every reservation. Hopefully you don't have any trouble getting here...
