Hotels in Telluride

Recently and ambitiously renovated, the historic New Sheridan Hotel has retained its 1895 charm, but now has stylish rooms with iPod stations and heated bathroom floors.

Set against the backdrop of the towering Rockies, the imposing edifice of the Peaks hugs the side of the ridge over Telluride, its honey-colored stucco walls and terra cotta roofs in harmony with hues of the surrounding landscape.

Providing unfettered access to some of the finest ski runs in southwestern Colorado, the Mountain Lodge at Telluride is a cross between a luxurious condominium village and a full-service mountain resort.

All residences and penthouses come with a fireplace and oversize soaking tub.

Located on the edge of Telluride village, the five-story, 32-suite Inn at Lost Creek has some of the characteristics of a lodge — fieldstone terraced outside, exposed beams, a stone-surrounded fireplace in the lobby, and onsite dining.

This 95-room hotel in Mountain Village, at the base of Telluride, changed ownership and was rechristened the Hotel Madeline in early 2011.

A boutique hotel in Telluride village, Hotel Telluride has a somewhat quirky exterior, with a turreted tower, Swiss-chalet style wooden balconies, and contrasting textures of brick and stone on the face.
