We stayed over only one night on our trip of Colorado. The parking costs extra but worth it especially as Telluride was extra busy due to a festival about to take place. Hotel Columbia is directly across the road from the free gondolas which take you up to one station then down again to the mountain village. Our room and...

This is a really nice, quiet hotel - my room was very comfortable and the bathroom very spacious. It is centrally located, but nevertheless it is very quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

Wow. What a great place!! Lodging in Telluride is challenging at best, and while there are a number of boutique or historic options available in town, if you look for honest and practical comfort, a smiling and proactive staff, and perfect location (literally, it could not be any better for a savvy and intelligent traveler) there is nothing better than...

Wonderful hotel with charming views of the Gondola, hill and residences. This hotel is practically in front of the Gondola which takes you to the hill as well as the Village. It is also approximately only 2-3 blocks from the main street, and 1 block to a ski rental store. The beds are comfortable, nice chairs and small desk, and...

This hotel was amazing! We got the room with a hot tub on the balcony and a seperate 1 bdrm. This room was perfect for us and our two kids. There were so many extra amenities thought of. Down to a very good chapstick in the room. Needless to say the star gazing in the hot tub was extremely relaxing....

A little about myself and Telluride first. I have been coming to this town for the last ten years. I love it, I have tried many of the hotels, probably all the restaurants, and all of the slopes... I can never seem to get enough. So it is with this history that I approach the Hotel Columbia. Here's the deal......
