3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

We had been here before two years ago and I recalled the eggs benedict were very good. However this time I opted for corned beef hash and eggs which was ok but by no means great. I would say good but no more. Renee had a disappointing Mexican style dish which was more mushy than tasty. Service was very good and needless to say eating in such historic old surroundings is always a treat. Dying to try the Chop House. Next time.

The hotel itself is clean and roomy. However, if you like to sleep at night, this hotel is not for you. The bar downstairs blasts music that carries well into the rooms above and is loud enough to vibrate my bed. (This music BEGAN at 10pm on Sunday, for reference.) Furthermore, the walls/windows facing the street are very thin, and the noise of bar patrons continues well into the morning. I am writing this review while listening to drunk folks shout at each other outside of my window. The windows are closed. I travel quite a bit for work, and this hotel stay was easily the worst that I have ever had. I can't wait to leave tomorrow, but I am not looking forward to a long drive with so little sleep this week.

My wife and I stayed at The New Sheridan last weekend. We enjoyed our stay and had excellent service in the Chop House and the bar next door, they were very attentive and friendly. Sadly I cannot say the same for the front desk employees. Upon arrival there was a young man in office behind the desk that was too busy playing on his phone to notice I was standing there. After waiting between 5 and 10 minutes another employee realized I was waiting to check in. No comment about the delay. Upon check out the desk was not very friendly either, did not ask about our stay, no acknowledgement that we spent our $$ with them and didn't even ask us to come back again. Being in the service business myself, I recommend management remind them why they are there. Given the overall experience we had with the hotel we will stay there again however if we experience the same type of service again we will stay elsewhere.

I am always so impressed with the quality of people who work at the New Sheridan. They are generous with their time and will bend over backwards to please their guests at the hotel and restaurant. Cheers to being such a valuable part of the Telluride community and a wonderful place to stay and feel at home.

The stay at the New Sheridan Hotel in Telluride, Colorado was excellent. We had a large king room. The room was spotless and the setup of room was excellent and very comfortable. Located in downtown Telluride. Resteraunt in hotel is excellent but very pricey. Service was friendly and excellent.
