Awards including AAA Four Diamond

Awards for Telluride Historic Hotel

Awards of Excellence
for Our Telluride Historic Hotel

Our small, 26 room boutique hotel in the heart of Telluride has recently received these awards and accolades.

AAA Four Diamond for Telluride Hotels
In 2012, we were awarded for the first time AAA’s award of Four Diamonds.

The team in the hotel, the restaurants and the bars worked hard to attain this accolade. I am so appreciative of their work for our guests.

Condé Nast Traveler Magazine was kind enough to honor the hotel and our team with two accolades in 2011:

#1 Best Ski Hotel for Service – in all of North America.
Imagine all the famous, refined hotels that we were being compared against and I am struck by the dedication of our small team here and what they accomplished with their friendly, “at-home” style- #1. Wow,

# 5 Best Ski Hotel – all around – in North America.
What can we say? All those incredible resorts that were in the running and our guest rooms, bars and restaurants came up #5 in all of North America.

Tripadvisor came in with its Award of Excellence - 2012.

Not every one of our guests love our unique and historic hotel, but those who do, truly want to express their gratitude to the team here. We are ranked at 4.5 stars with -
51 Excellent | 18 Very Good | 7 Average | 3 Poor | 2 Terrible.
As I say, we are not the right fit for all guests!

What about our food and wine awards?
Year after year we win them – for our fine dining, our casual Parlor, and of course our famous Western 1895 original saloon.

  1. Skiing magazine Best Steakhouse
  2. Top 100 Bars – by Nightclub and Bar Magazine ( the Editors must have had a fine time)
  3. Wine Spectator Award of Excellence – years running
  4. Forbes Traveler – Top 10 ”Hottest” Aprés Ski Bar. Well, we are the “heart” of Tellruide

Thanks to the Team
My great thanks to our team – to Mike, Bo, Cameron, Steve, Cory, Chef Erich, Dirk, Amy, and Cathie - for bringing these accolades.

General Manager for 16 years now
