Here the guests have a chance to meet the people who live here, who climb, ski, and bike. Of the hotels in Telluride, this is the one with the soul of the mountains.

Downtown Telluride hotels are few and there is none other than New Sheridan with such a history – dating back to the silver mining days of the 1890s.

A list of Telluride’s Best Hotels

The best hotels in Telluride include only one classic restored “beauty” that reflects the passion of a detailed and luxurious renovation – The New Sheridan on Main Street, at the heart of the action. An historic gem hotel from the mining days of Colorado, built in 1891, and renovated in the Victorian tradition in 2008. Telluride’s best hotels are led by the New Sheridan.

Telluride Boutique Hotels

Telluride boutique hotels are few: the New Sheridan Telluride is the one with gracious detail and exuberant spirit.

Telluride Resorts - New Sheridan stands out

The best Telluride resorts have the character and style of the mountains – most date from the lat two decades and are condos with little character although with a sense of luxury. The New Sheridan resort is an urban resort with the parts that make a resort spread around its block on Main Street. This is the only hotel that could be called a resort in Telluride – in downtown – at the heart of the mountain “scene”.

Other than the best restaurant in town and the best bars in town, the resort facilities are located in other individual businesses around the New Sheridan. The resort is therefore a part of the community rather than added to it – that is how the hotel becomes one of Telluride resorts.

Boutique Resorts in Telluride - authentic character

The best boutique style resorts in Telluride are almost completely “condo” resorts rather than “real resorts”. The exception is the New Sheridan Telluride which is a true boutique hotel with all the parts of resort life surrounding it in the “downtown” area. Though many guests refer to the New Sheridan as a hotel, it can be considered a boutique resort with historic mountain town character: New Sheridan – the boutique downtown resort

Authentic it is. “Drop dead” refined with its 2008 renovation by the renowned British Country House decorator, Pam Campbell, it also is. The light switches even echo the push in/push out style from the early 1900s. The plates of the light switches are burnished and heavy gauge, giving the touch and feel of period substance. These are just the light switches giving authentic character to this Telluride hotel.

  • Condo Hotels – Telluride

    Like many resort towns, Telluride has its fair share of condo hotels. They serve a many families with vacation accommodations on the mountain. Although our hotel is of different character – a true hotel, guests may want to experience being downtown in our village, at the heart of the action (that’s what the New Sheridan is – the heart of Telluride), rather than isolated in a new resort condo village. That is the fate of Telluride’s condo hotels – isolation.
