We can't say enough good things about Hotel Columbia and its staff. Really, the hotel is its staff. As others have noted, the location is perfect (we're town people), the amenities are outstanding. Chad and The Cosmo have had our hearts for a long time...too many wonderful dinners to count. However, the cherry on top of all of that is...

Had 7 days skiing in Telluride for the first time. This hotel is in the more interesting old town rather than the blander Mountain Village. The staff were all genuinely friendly and always helpful. Location is amazingly convenient: ski lifts opposite and a place to hire skis no distance away. There is a ski room on the ground floor with...

Thank you for your review! It was so nice having you visit, and I hope you get the chance to do so again. I appreciate your thorough feedback and your notes about the Gondola is good for us all to remember! Hope to see you soon.

This hotel is fantastic for easy ski access. Addionally, you're already in town for Apres and dinner! We've previously stayed in Mountain Village (which is equally as great for different reasons) however liked staying in town for the convenience. Hotel Columbia staff is great. HIGHLY recommend staying in room 26 which has a private hot tub on the balcony. The...

We stayed here for our wedding in January. We had a wonderful stay. The room was small, but comfortable and well appointed. Customer service went above and beyond and the free breakfast was the best free breakfast I've ever had at any hotel. Hotel is located within yards of the Telluride gondola as well as shops and restaurants.

This is a very nice hotel, in a great location in Telluride. My husband and I have stayed there many times. It is right across from the gondola which takes you up to the Ski Village. I knew when I booked our room, there is a 10 day prior to arrival cancellation policy. We were going to ski in January....

I recall your situation and wish I could have been more flexible. Please know if we had rebooked the night (which unfortunately we did not), a refund would have been possible. The best recommendation I can offer for future weather sensitive trips would be travel insurance, which we offer for every reservation. Hopefully you don't have any trouble getting here...

Really enjoyed this place! A very comfortable boutique hotel - clean, practical and comfortable. I have been on many ski holidays, but have never seen accommodation as close to the main lift (gondola) as this, literally a 10 meter walk. We could hear a tiny bit of noise in the neighboring room, but nothing of issue. Breakfast was very good,...

This is a great location for two families on a ski tour. The location was fabulous, as was the dinner and bar. Access to the gondola could not be easier which is a key consideration with little peeps in tow. We would love to return.

My excellent experience at the Hotel Columbia began way before my arrival. The people that handled my inquires regarding special rates on the website, the town, and ground transportation from Montrose were by far the most genuinely nice people. Both transportation companies had spotty reviews - the hotel offered to make the reservations and assured me that all would be...
