A charming boutique hotel located in the town of Telluride at the mountains base just across the street from the gondola. The location is wonderful and the staff is amazing. One of the finest restaurants in Telluride is located in the first floor of the hotel. We’ve been to Telluride 5 times and have stayed at the Hotel Columbia the... More

Call early. They book up fast and make all your dinner reservations early as well especially if you are coming for a holiday weekend or festival. The staff can help you with that. They can also help you with activities. We went on a dog sled ride with winter moon dog sled company, went cross country skiing and down hill.... More

We have skied in Telluride a number of times. But this was our first time staying at the Columbia. It's a great location and a wonderful restaurant. You walk out the door and the tram to the ski mountain is right there.

This was our first trip to Telluride so we were not sure where to stay - in the town of Telluride or up at the Base of Telluride. After much research we decided to stay in town. This place is well located by the gondola and walking distance to town for dinner and drinks. They also have what seems to... More

We've stayed at multiple places in Telluride and really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Columbia. Travis greeted us when we arrived. All of the staff were very gracious while we were there. As others have stated, the location next to the gondola can't be beat. The room was great with one exception. The Murphy bed squeaked with any movement.... More

The decor is comfortable, the location is the best if you are skiing, the continental breakfast is great and the Cosmo restaurant is excellent.
