Certificate of Excellence Winner Yearly Since 2012

Since 2012, Hotel Columbia has been a winner of the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor. We could always tout our own strengths but we would rather earn our reputation by independent third parties and most importantly our guests! See recent reviews of Hotel Columbia below:

“Hotel Columbia is the best!”

Our recent stay at Hotel Columbia was perfection! We looked forward to breakfast every morning just to see what new creation the pastry chef had prepared and it was always delicious. The beds are extremely comfortable and the hotel is very clean. What makes this boutique hotel super special is the staff! They all go above and beyond to make your stay extra special. Many thanks to them for their hospitality!

“Great Find!”

This hotel is ideally located near the base of the ski lift and has the best staff ever! The European Continental breakfast (included in the price of the room) was expansive and tasty. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a pleasure to stay here and we will return!

“Great boutique hotel, great location”
We came in last minute for a snowstorm in late February. The price was pretty ridiculous that particular weekend, but it was the last room available in town, so we didn’t have many options.
We ended up being very happy with our stay. The rooms are well appointed and spacious, with niceties such as heated bathroom floors.
The location can’t be beat, about 30 yards from the gondola and 2 blocks from the main drag in Telluride.
The staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast (European style/continental) was good. Parking was in short supply, but they are pretty flexible and helped us get a spot right near the back door.
This hotel is a bit out of my normal price range, but I’d have no problem recommending it to someone looking for a higher-end boutique hotel.

“Top Telluride Boutique Hotel”

This was our second time returning for a week at Hotel Columbia. Again we were delighted. The Hotel staff is always right there to help. We had a standard king room overlooking the mountain. Our only complaint was that our room was too hot requiring either to open the windows or at night leave the AC on low. The location right in town next to the Gondola to Mountain Village can’t be beat. The down pillows, comforters and mattresses are superb, the best night’s sleep for me. Loved the peppered cold Salmon available at the Continental breakfast. Dining at the Hotel’s restaurant the Cosmopolitan, one of Telluride’s top restaurants can not be more convenient.

“Hotel Columbia is excellent and very convenient”

The location could not be better in Telluride for skiing. It is right across the street from the gondola. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are luxurious. Right near the lobby is one of the best restaurants in Telluride, The Cosmopoltian. In the morning Hotel columbia serves a wonderful hot breakfast to get your engine going. I would go back to this hotel in a heart beat!

“Excellent boutique hotel!”

This is a European style hotel located next to the gondola. It has a European style hot breakfast buffet daily that is awesome. We had breakfast at the hotel every day but one. The rooms are luxurious and the service is top rate. This is one of my favorite hotels. They happily store your skis and snowboards for you. The hotel itself is set into the side of the mountain and has a creek running in front of it. It’s beautiful. It’s pricey, but if you can afford it, I would highly recommend this hotel. We did not make use of most of the amenities, as we spent little time in the room, but the time we did spend in the hotel was perfect. This is where we will stay next year.

Room Tip: Go online and see their room offers. They will tell you how many bathrooms/bedrooms and how many people each room comfortably sleeps.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2015

My family has short-term leased a condo in Telluride the past 8 summers, and has one booked for summer ’15. Telluride is our happy place, but this review is about the Hotel Columbia only! When we decided to go for our first winter trip between Christmas 2013 and New Year’s, we chose Hotel Columbia because its location is ideal. And we learned it is much more. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Columbia is small enough to be cozy and the suites are big enough to keep a family happy. The breakfasts are beyond delightful, and we lingered at the table each morning with our gaze on the mountain. A perfect snow globe. The bartenders and chefs in the Cosmo restaurant in the lobby know their craft (and there’s room service.) We went back to Hotel Columbia at the end of 2014, our gift to ourselves. We need more space than a hotel suite for our summer stays, but love the Hotel Columbia for a short stay in winter. I wish I were there now.

Room Tip: If you stay in a room on the street side, you’ll hear some outside noise because the hotel is so near the gondola station. Pets allowed on two floors, I believe (Myerwood)
