Property Information

Escape to a secluded retreat nestled amidst towering sawtooth peaks, where the fresh mountain air is fragrant with pine and the streets are lined with charming Victorian and Old West facades. This is downtown Telluride, and at its heart is Hotel Columbia, a boutique hotel that offers a tranquil getaway just steps from the free gondola to Telluride Ski Resort. With only 21 rooms and suites, this intimate hotel is the perfect place to experience life like a local in one of Colorado's most sought-after ski destinations.

  • Fuel up for a full day of mountain adventure with the hotel’s complimentary European-style breakfast, including favorites like quiche Lorraine and house-smoked salmon with capers.
  • Slip into a pair of toasty ski boots in Hotel Columbia’s ski locker room, filled with private lockers and ski boot dryers.
  • Look no further than out your front door for mountain access. The hotel is adjacent to the free gondola that transports guests along a soaring 13-minute ride to the base of Mountain Village.
  • Park and play stress-free with onsite valet parking.
  • Dogs are family in this mountain haven, where the hotel greets your furry friends with treats and plenty of personal attention.
  • Indulge in the ultimate après ski and dinner experience at the onsite award-winning COSMOpolitan restaurant and lounge, where Chef Chad Scothorn's delectable creations have drawn praise from esteemed publications such as The New York Times and Bon Appetit.

A Suite Spot in the Heart of Telluride

Land upon the Columbia’s plush pillowtop king beds adorned with down comforters and a cloud of pillows at the end of every action-packed day. The hotel’s creature comforts complement an endless list of rugged adventures and epic exploring, both on and off the ski mountain.

  • Discover the vibrant pulse of creativity in Telluride’s arts district, where daily events ignite the senses. Summertime is filled with an array of food, wine, film, and beer festivals along with music festivals; Thursday art walks; outdoor concerts; shopping; art markets and galleries galore are right outside the hotel’s front doors, in the heart of town.
  • Colorado history is alive and well in this mining-town-turned-adventure-mecca. In fact, the hotel takes its name from the town’s beginnings as a rowdy mining camp called Columbia. Take a self-guided walking tour using Telluride’s downloadable map or dive deeper with a local historian. From Old West façades to sprawling gardens, masterwork sculptures or holiday decorations, there is something to explore year-round.
  • Telluride is home to some of Colorado’s most breathtaking scenery and wild summer adventure. Scale mountains, race downhill on a mountain bike, ride the rapids, fly-fish, or hike to cascading waterfalls or shimmering lakes.
  • Experience ski-in/ski-out luxury at our hotel, located just steps away from lift 8 and the gondola, offering unparalleled access to Telluride Ski Mountain. But the winter fun doesn't stop there. With many different nordic areas located between Town Park, Mountain Village, Valley Floor, Trout Lake, and more, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are just a few steps away. Want to try something new? Rent a fat-tire bike to fly through the snow on two wheels, or lace up your skates and hit the ice rink in Mountain Village or Telluride. And don't miss out on the festive downtown activities that are sure to fill you with holiday spirit.
