At a Glance

This intimate, welcoming hotel is located within walking distance of all Telluride’s restaurants, shopping and nightlife, but skiers electing to stay in town will be grateful that the gondola to the slopes is a stone's throw from the lobby door.

Indagare Loves

  • The hotel’s best-of-both-worlds location, close to lively Main Street but mere steps from the gondola
  • Breakfast and room service by one of the best restaurants in town
  • The penthouse suites with private balconies overlooking the San Miguel River


This charming hotel, which reopened in 2009 after an extensive face-lift, is conveniently located across the street from the main gondola in Telluride. The light and airy reception has iced lemon water and Illy coffee on offer and displays pieces by local artists from the Telluride Gallery. The twenty-one rooms and suites are comfortable and smart, decorated in muted grays and browns; some of them have roof decks with hot tubs or spacious living areas with gas fireplaces. Many have small kitchenettes, and several have full kitchens. Those who would prefer to leave the cooking to someone else will be pleased to have the Cosmopolitan restaurant in such close proximity. Located on the ground floor, it serves a lovely breakfast exclusively for guests of the hotel, with homemade granola and baked goods prepared from scratch by the restaurant’s pastry chef.
