Hotel Columbia

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For the first time in 27 years, we visited Telluride in the Summer. We have gone to Telluride two to three times each winter since 1990. In the Summer there are music festivals or film festivals every week. Even in Summer, Hotel Columbia was the best place to stay. It literally right across the street from the gondola and Chairs 8 and 9 ( for Winter fun). Chair 9 was always my kids favorite Chairlift. The food is excellent at the Hotel Columbia and service is great. We are already booked for our first Winter trip in December 2017.

We enjoyed a large two room suite on the second floor of this super hotel located just at the foot of the gondola. We felt we made the very best choice of hotels in Telluride downtown. This is a very small boutique hotel with absolutely the most fabulous people working there. They remember your name from day one treat you like a very special guest. We can't wait to go back! One note of caution.... this is a dog friendly hotel. so, if you are not a dog lover, you should ask when you book your room. I believe they have a floor that has no pets. We did not know this until after we were there. There was not a huge problem, but we did hear a barking dog next door to us at times. The Cosmopolitan restaurant that is attached to the hotel is fabulous! It is not owned by the hotel, but there is a free full breakfast there every morning. We ate there for 3 dinners it was so good!

Telluride is a wonderful vacation spot summer or winter-this hotel sits right at the foot of lift 7 and the gondola up to the mountain lodge area. Perfect location if you want to enjoy the amenities of downtown and catch the lift or gondola up to the top. There is a great restaurant attached to the hotel as well. Staff is pleasant, rooms are very clean and decent size bathroom with separate tub and shower. Rooms facing mountain do have noise from people below so if you don't want to disturbed at night ask for a room on other side. Breakfast was included with our room which helps as the rates here are pricey. The cleanliness, location and staff friendliness are worth it.

They have done a great job of providing a great value in service to make your stay at Telluride what you want it to be! I've stayed here twice and have had very good experiences each time, once in the winter and once in the summer.

The Hotel Columbia was a well-managed property. The staff was knowledgable, friendly, helpful, and really took good care of us. The continental breakfast was top notch, and the staff at the restaurant was just as good, if not better than the hotel. They gave us coffee to go for our road trip back to Omaha, and a little hug. It's the little things! The room was really comfortable, undated, with a great shower and bathroom. And the location was amazing! Right on the edge of downtown, where you could walk to all the great restaurants and bars in Telluride, plus within walking distance of the gondola, which operates all summer and takes you to Mountain Village. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We loved everything about hotel Columbia -- staff was amazing, breakfast was great. And the location and quality of rooms were perfect!! Telluride is an amazing place to visit and this is the perfect boutique hotel to stay. We will definitely be back!

We had room #48 which had a private hot tub. Really really fantastic view of the mountains, gondola and river! The bedding was extremely comfortable. Not one interruption from staff. The location was perfect and even the parking was easy peazy.

We found a one-bedroom suite at Hotel Columbia for TBF via VRBO, and couldn't have been happier! Lovely little room, and well-appointed. The staff was awesome, and we were thrilled to discover that our 4-day stay included an awesome breakfast every morning! What a treat before heading out for a day of music in the sun.

Having never visited Telluride....I had no clue where to stay. Hotel Columbia was a super find for many reasons. Closest to the lifts to the mountain, no need for our car as everything was walkable and not to mention our room was exceptional.

Hotel room was convenient to shops on Main Street and restaurants all around town. The gondola was right outside the door and we took a ride to Mountain Village. The hotel restaurant was very good. We had appetizers one evening. The buffet breakfast was high quality as well.
