My wife and I chose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Telluride and a must on our list was to stay at Hotel Columbia based on a previous stay during ski season. The hotel is almost in the heart of downtown Telluride and just across the street from the town Gondola. The river trail is pretty much at its...

We stayed at Hotel Columbia for two nights for a concert. WORST VALUE EVER. Directly outside the suite were three massive backhoes working 6 days a week 7am - 6pm digging for construction on ski lifts. BEEP-BEEP-BEEP. See photo. GRIND-GRIND. This had obviously been going on for BEEP-BEEP-BEEP weeks. BEEP-BEEP-GRIND-GRIND-BEEP. All three of the backhoes beeped constantly at slightly BEEP-BEEP...

Madam, I recall your visit and realize the construction the ski area commissioned was untimely. I realize it’s no consolation but that was the final weekend of the project. The frustration you expressed with the property even prior to checking in is what prompted me to offer you a full refund. I have never in my career made a suggestion...

Great service, nice location and the beds are huge! There are walking trails nearby and the park is a 5 min walk. Only suggestion would be to replace the carpet... old, outdated and a bit too worn. We didn't eat here but the restaurant looked nice.

Room 230 overlooking the street and the river and the mountain. The room as spacious with lots of light. The bed and bedding is fabulous. The restaurant is one of the best in town....free breakfast with your stay. Valet parking and right at the base of the gondola. And the best thing about Hotel Columbia is the staff.

Great hotel in a great location in town, right next to the Gondola. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff was tremendous. Very helpful (thanks Linda and Michael!) and helped us find information on sites we wanted to see and such. Close walking to everything.

We have enjoyed staying at Hotel Columbia now four times - always in the same room. While the room itself has never looked better and has had all minor issues addressed (nice job staying on top of maintenance!), minor things have changed our view of Hotel Columbia from a five-star boutique property to a four-star one. The (included) warm/cold buffet...
