We stayed for 3 nights in the guest room with hot tub, the room itself was bright with fireplace, table/chairs, lovely large comfy bed, mini kitchen (hob, fridge etc) wonderful large bathroom with double size shower and balcony patio with the tub.
As lovely as it was there was a little room to move around, store luggage. The bed could convert into a sofa and the cushions to enable this were stored under the bed and in the wardrobe so we could only put one of our cases in the wardobe. The bed had rigid sides next to where you naturally climb in out & you had to be careful not to catch your legs, having negotiated this the positioning of the table/chairs at the foot of the bed left only a small gap to walk by without knocking into the furniture, I left with several bruises.
I was particularly looking forward to relaxing in the tub but was a bit disappointed that it was overlooked & would have preferred a bit more privacy. It's not overlooked by the cable car more by the adjacent properties and other hotel rooms that are in very close proximity. However the balcony itself was a wonderful sun trap and a great place to sit and soak up some rays.
Parking in Telluride is restricted and time limited so it was great that the Columbia took our car & parked it up for us, there are great walks around the town and of course the cable car to enjoy so we never used our car during the stay.
The buffet breakfast was excellent, a great selection and refreshed regularly. We did dine in the restaurant on one of our evenings, lured by a happy hour deal but found this was restricted to only a few things on the menu so we ended up choosing alternatives and the meal was more expensive than we planned and without any wine!
If we came back to Telluride we would stay here again, we'd like to get up early in the morning to walk along the river & watch the beavers.
