New Sheridan Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We booked the New Sheridan for a few nights as my wife and I were attending a wedding in Telluride. This was our first time there and we definitely picked the best place to stay. It is right in the heart of town and we stayed in room 213 which overlooked the shops and restaurants on their "main street", Colorado Avenue and if you looked up there were snow capped mountains in the distance. Wow! The hospitality and service were excellent, especially Randall who made certain we felt right at home, There may be pricier places to stay in Telluride but I dare say there is no better place to stay than the New Sheridan.

Corner room on the street was perfect for the end of the shoulder season. Might have been a little noisy if there'd been a festival going but the streets were quiet. Room was large and well appointed with great views of the main drag. Loved it.

My wife and I were there a couple of nights last week, room 214. First of all, the New Sheridan is a wonderful, historic hotel that is immaculately clean and comfortable. Our room was medium sized, maybe slightly small, but nonetheless very good. We dined at the restaurant next to the bar (not the main hotel) and thoroughly enjoyed it. If one is not in the mood for fine dining, thankfully there are options, good options, offered by New Sheridan. In fact, we ate every meal at the New Sheridan and felt no reason to leave for dining. The staff was very helpful and well trained. I had read reviews about noise prior to booking my reservations; fortunately, we were one room off of Colorado St. On Tuesday night, I could hear revelers around midnight, but only momentarily. I can easily see how noise would become an issue during an event filled time if you are facing Colorado St., especially weekends. One would think that insulated windows of some sort would be in order for the guests who either choose these rooms or are placed in them. And maybe they are insulated, I don't know. I will say that I liked everything I read abut the hotel to take a chance, regardless, and I'm glad I did. The only other thing that some may find as an inconvenience is parking. You park in the middle lane of Colorado St., unload your vehicle, issued a parking pass, and finally park on the street in designated areas behind the hotel. For my wife and I, it was just fine, but I could see if someone had to return to their vehicle a few times for whatever reason it could become annoying; however, that is nitpicking and should not be an issue for 95%+ of guests. Once you are there, you will see why it is impossible to park anywhere else. All told, a great experience!

We stayed one night at this historic hotel and it as like going back in time. The room was actually a spacious suite with a living room and bedroom. Furnished with reproduction (and maybe some authentic pieces) furniture of the period it was a very homey feeling. The bathroom was also upscale and had good shower pressure. A comfortable bed, modern TV and nice view of the downtown Street with storefronts lit up at night. A saloon type bar, Card room, and dining area added to the ambience. The only down side was the noise on the Main Street with people leaving the bars on this Saturday night which continued from 10PM until 2 AM.

The location of this hotel is phenomenal. The entire property, the hotel, itself, the restaurant, and bar, are all so rich in history and equally great in that respect. The hotel is a gem in the little town of Telluride, which makes it even that much more unfortunate that it's management runs it with such disdain and disrespect for its guests. We stayed here for 4 nights in Room 203 and were awoken each and every night by extremely loud music at the bar below us at around 10pm, and the noise went on each and every night until 2am. We carefully reviewed and thought out our stay at the New Sheridan and were fully prepared to deal with a little bit of extra noise coming from patrons and street traffic below us, but not to this extent. Even in using the earplugs provided by the hotel, we could still hear the music from the bar along with the hooping and hollering of its customers for hours each night, so that should give you an idea of just how loud it was, not just for our room, but likely the entire east side of the hotel on the second floor. I'm actually shocked that the management of what should be such a prestigious hotel allows this to go on. Until this place figures out if they want to be a night club, a restaurant, or a hotel, I'd strongly advise against paying $200-$300 per night to stay here. There's an abundance of better lodging options in Telluride. I fully expect a response from the New Sheridan’s management in an effort to buff a silver lining around this review, but the fact of the matter is that there just isn’t an excuse for running an upscale property like this.

Nothing exciting on the menu. The French Onion soup arrrived luke warm. They replaced it but we were bugged 3 times with our next course being delivered when we hadn't finished the soup. The soup was ok and the salad nothing special. Suggest going elsewhere.

My wife and I have been coming to the New Sheridan Hotel for the past 20 years: prior to the impressive renovation (hard to believe that it has been 10 years already!), prior to that Chop House becoming the stellar dining destination that it is today, and prior to Telluride being listed as the #1 ski destination by multiple publications. The rooms here are very comfortable, and attractive. The location cannot be beat, it's central to the vibrant Telluride downtown. Food here is great. The biggest draw for us returning to the New Sheridan, year after year, was, and still is, the tremendous hospitality provided by the entire staff of the hotel. The management team (Ray, Mike, Bo, et al) leads by example. They are always welcoming, and focused on making sure we get the most out of our stay. Any little bumps in the road which may come up during the course of a trip are smoothed out. If my math is right, they are celebrating their 20th winter season together in 2017-18. Congratulations! We'll be returning on our annual pilgrimage in a couple of weeks, we cannot wait!

Went for dinner in main dining room!!! One of the best steak houses in the country, we had the dry aged porter house that Brian the bartender suggested it was off the hook. Foster and Ahern the bartenders were awesome and made our dining experience memorable it was 5 star dining in a small ski town. What a pleasant experience we will be back for sure, great vibes! Full recommendation.

Visitors to Telluride have the option of lodging in the town of Telluride or in the Mountain Village. The town carefully protects its buildings and is mostly within a strictly enforced historic zone. The New Sheridan is the oldest hotel in town and retains an authentic late 19th century aura. The entrance is through a saloon and the hotel has only 26 rooms. It's not cheap. Not really a 5 star or a 4 diamond however. The hotel has been carefully renovated but still lacks basic in room amenities that one would expect in a ski town. No coffee makers, no fridge, no microwave, and above all, no outside hot tub! Unforgivable! Expect to pay a premium price. Expect a professional and experienced staff. Expect a spacious room with an old west feel.

The staff is very friendly. Hotel is great. The parking is horrible. I love this hotel . My daughter and I went shopping in the local shopping stores very unfriendly. I have always said, I don't pay for rudeness. I would say this is a very safe place to walk around. The mountains are out of this world.
