“Wonderful Hotel with great location”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

My family and I did a road trip through Colorado last week. We stayed in Telluride for 3 days, 2 nights. Our room was large and comfortable, great views from our room as it had a wall of windows. Huge King Size bed. The location was perfect, a few blocks away from Main Street. Complimentary breakfast served each morning was amazing, banana bread, boiled eggs, granola, yogurt, quiche, assortment of meats and cheeses, orange juice, hot coffee and a mix of gourmet teas. We were able to store all of our mountain bikes in the ski locker area. There is a great restaurant in the Hotel called the Cosmopolitan. We liked the dinners there so much that we ate there 2 nights in a row. Would highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back next year!

We stayed one night at this hotel on our Colorado vacation. Parking is a nightmare. There is no place to even stop to unload your bags. The hotel charges $20 to park your car in the alley behind them then you have to surrender your keys. We ended up parking down the street and schlepping bags 2 blocks. I missed the charm of this place totally. Restaurant is way overpriced.

columbiatelluride, General Manager at Hotel Columbia, responded to this review, 15 June 2012
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We apologize that your stay at the Hotel Columbia did not meet your expectations.

Unfortunately, parking in Telluride is very limited. The high demand for business and residential parking in the down town core and gondola area make it difficult for Telluride visitors to find parking. To help alleviate this problem and offer a convenient alternative for our guests, we offer on-site parking in our car-port for $20 per night. The Hotel Columbia strives to accommodate all of our guests’ parking needs. In order to maximize the number of vehicles we can accommodate, it is necessary for us to retain the keys for vehicles that are parked in our car-port. For guests that choose to park off-site, we welcome them to temporarily park in the car-port to unload/load their bags.

We will be sure to share your feedback of the Cosmopolitan Restaurant with their owner and manager as they are separately owned and operated from the Hotel Columbia.

Please except our sincerest apology for your frustrations. We hope to have the chance to serve you again in the future.

We stayed at the Hotel Columbia during a ski competition. The hotel is quaint and tastily decorated. The breakfast is wonderful with not your standard fare with items such as quiche. What a lovely way to start your day. The rooms are comfortable with updated decor; I think they are all unique. The staff was so personable and warm, that is what really makes the stay special. Keep that special touch.

I left my slippers in the ski room, the staff was so gracious to send those back to me quickly, greatly appreciated since they are keeping my feet warm right now!!!

We stayed at Hotel Columbia for 4 nights. Literally 10 seconds to the lifts. Staff its very nice, the 3 bedroom suite was great. If you are a skier who likes convenience and great service, this is the place. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms in the hotel actually have hot tubs.

This hotel is steps from the gondola in town close to many restaurants and shops. They provide storage for skis and dryers for boots. The room is large with many windows. The bed is soft with down accessories. The bathroom is large and has a heated floor. We had plenty of large towels and a heated towel rack. My only complaint was that the flat screen tv was too low on the wall. That said it was still a great room. The price included a wonderful breakfast and hot drinks after skiing. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. The management was very helpful when our arrival was delayed. I will definitely return.
