New Sheridan Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved staying at the New Sheridan. From the minute we arrived, we found it to be a charming hotel with enough modern amenities to satisfy most travelers used to a more resort/high end feel. - The staff is small, but very friendly and knowledgeable. They all love Telluride and can give great advice about the town - The rooms themselves are really comfortable with luxurious bedding, a heated bathroom with nice soaps, and outlets galore - We booked a prospector suite which was big enough for a family of 5. A bit tight, but we all fit. The hotel is centrally located to everything and we enjoyed walking around the town in day and night.

I just spent 4 nights at the New Sheridan Hotel in Telluride and was very impressed with the whole operation. The staff, the mgt, the bartenders, the waiters, housekeeping, were all helpful and friendly. A mgr named Nick was very accommodating for a free special request we had. The room was quite nice, updated, clean, very comfy bed, modern bathroom, and almost all lights have dimmers. The New Sheridan Hotel is in an outstanding location right in the middle of downtown Telluride and about 2 blocks to the free gondola station. It is such a great location I never used my rental car one time. The New Sheridan Hotel has a great free morning coffee bar and also offers great breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Room service breakfast was wonderful too. This hotel has 3 cozy bars on the first floor, and a cool roof-top bar during the summer months. The only thing some people may not like is if you have a room over the main drag there is some minor noise from the street as people exit the bars in the later hours of the evening, but this did not bother me. I intend on staying at the New Sheridan Hotel when I return to Telluride.

We enjoyed going to the Sheridan for breakfast on Sunday morning thought it was great that they opened at 8am and the food and service very good. There was a nice variety with omelets and eggs Benedict and Mexican breakfast choices

My new husband and I stayed at the New Sheridan Hotel in Telluride for our "mini moon" following our wedding, and we could not have been happier with the experience! The hotel itself is historic elegance, and is located smack in the middle of downtown Telluride, which is exactly where you want to be to walk to shops, bars, restaurants, etc. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The service, though, is what really made the trip stand out for me. The staff is SO friendly and accommodating--they went out of their way to honor our requests for a late night bottle of champagne on my birthday and some to-go food for our drive home. The whole experience really embodied the spirit of Telluride; we loved staying there and will be back!!

We stayed here for our anniversary trip. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the hotel itself was beautiful. The artwork and historical photographs hanging in the hallways are a nice touch. The location also made it convenient to the surrounding hiking trails, shops, and restaurants.

Lovely hotel that has maintained the character and history of this hotel, updated beautifully. Right on the Main Street in Telluride. Literally a few feet to restaurants and shopping. We didn't use the main restaurant but only heard positive things.

I used to live in Telluride. So I'm picky. This is a great property. I got an interior room. It was muggy, but the staff helped set up the in room AC unit for me. The room and bathroom were really well appointed. The rooftop bar is awesome! Best location in Telluride for a hotel.

We stayed at the New Sheridan for 5 nights during the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. The Hotel and town were packed with "Festivarians". The location of the hotel was super-convenient to the festival (Town Park) and all Telluride has to offer. The hotel itself is the real deal... a beautifully renovated and restored hotel. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We loved our stay!

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It is right on Main Street in Telluride. The beds were very comfortable, everything you needed was right there. The staff were amazing, accommodated to your every need.

We stayed for four nights during the week and had a great time. In deciding where to stay, I always go through TA reviews and rely on them to help with my choices. While wherever I'm going, I think back to some of the reviews and laugh. YES, the rooms that overlook Main Street get some noise from Main Street. Whoopdedoo. You're also overlooking amazing mountains and there is a white noise machine and ear plugs if you want them but chances are you won't need them as the town settles in for the night. I truly feel our room on Main made it perfect. "Boohoo, there's no parking lot and we had to park around the corner on a street!!" If you're looking for parking lots, you don't know Telluride. New Sheridan makes it very clear where to stop and check in so you can get your parking permit and where you can park. I honestly think my on the street parking spot was closer than I've been at some hotels with big parking lots. There is no air conditioning, which I knew going in and didn't care as I know what the Colorado mountain air feels like at night. Well, joke was on me when Telluride decided to flirt with 90 degrees (VERY RARE!) the first three days we were there. We were on the third floor and yes, the room got warm. But...cue the New Sheridan caring about its guests yet again: there's a ceiling fan (oh, if only every hotel had one) and there's also an evaporative cooler in the room and the fan in the bathroom also sucked out a lot of the heat. Between those and keeping the blinds closed it wasn't that bad at all. The room itself was beautiful. Large enough for the two of us to not be on top of each other for four days but still cozy and quaint (as in the real definition, not a euphemism for tiny) But the best part is not even once did I hear my neighbor in their room. We were the room right off the elevator/near the roof bar. Upon arrival I was worried more about roof bar noise than street noise but once we got into our room, we couldn't hear the bar or the elevator. Only bar noise that we heard was Thursday afternoon when the music was obnoxiously louder than usual. I'm sure a phone call would have fixed it (again, it was an anomaly) but we decided to chill because hello, VACATION! It also shuts down by 9, reducing people in the hallway and music. When it wasn't 94 degrees in blazing sun, the roof bar was a nice place to grab a drink. They had a menu, but we didn't eat there. We did eat at the Chop House for two nights and both times were spectacular. Johnny was our server both nights - because upon returning we asked for him again. He made dinner fun and was a highlight of our stay. We would DEFINITELY love to stay here again. Ray and (Kate? Kathy? the assistant GM) were both fantastic and every member of the staff that we interacted with were kind and friendly.
