“Nice New Old Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

My wife and I stayed at the New Sheridan Hotel in Telluride for one night on a week-long trip around Colorado. Our room was on the 3rd (top) floor overlooking the street. The room was very large, as was the bathroom. It was very clean. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable, maybe the best I've ever slept on. The furniture was historically proper for the period the original hotel was built and first used. In the Colorado mountains, many hotels do not have air conditioning as the evenings are always cool. We found our room to be too warm for good sleeping, so we opened the two windows overnight. There was a lot of noise that came into our room. First, we had the pleasure of hearing a number of very loud and drunk people leaving the two bars on the first floor, and then about 5 AM the street sweeping machine decided to make a number of passes by the hotel. Neither of which was the hotels fault, but you may want to ask for a room that doesn't face the street if you are a light sleeper.

The rooftop hot tubs (two of them) were very nice. There is no hotel parking area, so you need to find a spot on one of the residential streets. It is a little bit of a walk, but you can park in front of the hotel just to unload your luggage, if the distance is a concern. We parked in a street behind the hotel, and some clown mashed right up against the bumper of our brand new car. Next time, we'll park even farther away. We also enjoyed the historic pictures on the hallway walls of the hotel - great history!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the street are nice if you like to people watch, but are very loud if you are a lig...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your Colorado vacation. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our comfortable beds, overall cleanliness, authentic decor, and rooftop hot tubs. We apologize for the disruptive noise outside. We provide ear plugs in room to help mitigate, but recommend an interior room as the best solution. Thank you for your review, and we look forward to welcoming you back!

My husband and I have skied Telluride multiple time, and the last trip was the best of them all!
Not only did we have great day of skiing but we also discovered the New Sheridan Hotel.

It is located right in downtown, close to all restaurants, shops and of course the slopes.

The hotel is beautifully restored to preserve its charm and history of the late 1800's.
The rooms have amenities above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible: humidifier, robes, high quality towels and linens, brand bath soaps and shampoos, heated floors and what not!

The robes are there for a reason. A gem of this hotel is a hot tub located on the roof. What can be more romantic, than relaxing after a day of skiing and watching the groomers work at night.

The hotel also features concierge services, free parking, bar and a full restaurant.
Customer Services will impress you with detail oriented concierge on the main floor. We got all taken care of by Beau who made our stay even more comfortable.

You will enjoy the stay - no doubt!!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the New Sheridan for 2 nights after our flight was cancelled last year. I almost wish our rebooked flights had been even later. What a great hotel! The staff was exceptionally helpful and welcoming. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The decor is updated but not in a generic contemporary way. They truly did an amazing job blending modern luxury with the spirit and character of Telluride. In addition to the great rooms, the gorgeous New Sheridan Chop House is one of our favorite restaurants in Telluride. Whether you're in town during winter or summertime, the New Sheridan should be at the top of your list.
Just a note: As might be expected with an old hotel, the bathrooms were small, but they are immaculate and lovely.

Returning to the New Sheridan is like coming home. We love to visit Telluride in the summer as well as during ski season. The welcoming staff and warm atmosphere is hospitality at it's best. We've visited countless ski areas and hotels over 30 years, but the New Sheridan is a unique find. It's Chop House restaurant offers outstanding dinners with a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It also has the best breakfast in town. I can almost taste the delicious trout and eggs in my dreams. Being in the center of everything going on in Telluride is quite a bonus as well. Can't wait to return this summer!

Excellent Hotel. Quite historic. Great staff. Very friendly and helpful. Front desk quite accommodating. When my flight was canceled due to weather they assisted me and allowed me to stay an extra day. Lobby Lounge staff also great as was the restaurant which had great service and super food.
