Oyster Hotel Review
Relaxed mountain atmosphere with cozy details
Driving into Telluride sets a relaxing tone with its small-town vibe and beautiful scenery. Set among houses on a residential street, the Hotel Telluride is a beautiful stone structure with arching lines and wood balconies. The mountain lodge theme continues in the lobby, with its high-peaked wood ceiling, huge stone fireplace, and lots of overstuffed couches. Rooms are cozy and provide an ideal place to relax after a day of skiing or hiking. While the hotel is within walking distance of downtown, the location is a quiet one. The limited scene here can be found in the Nook restaurant, where apres-ski meals and drinks are served. For nightlife, a free shuttle brings guests to downtown.
Walking distance to the gondola and downtown Telluride
Telluride was once one of Colorado's best kept secrets -- not only for a beautiful location -- but for world-class skiing as well. Located in a box canyon, Telluride is enclosed by tall cliffs on three sides, with iconic Bridal Veil Falls (visible from Colorado Avenue) at the far end of the canyon. The town of Telluride connects with Mountain Village (the true base of the ski runs) by a gondola that is free in the summer, and costs a fee in the winter.
Resting in the San Juan mountain range in the southwest corner of the state, Telluride can be hard to get to. Located over 300 miles from any major city, it is out of the question to drive from Denver International Airport or Salt Lake City, but luckily Telluride has a regional airport. Travelers can also fly into relatively nearby to Montrose and take the hour and half shuttle ride to town.
The Hotel Telluride is a quick walk to downtown Telluride, and just an eight-minute walk to the gondola that services the ski slopes. Located in a residential area of Telluride, the hotel is quiet and somewhat isolated, but still a close walk to bars, restaurants, and entertainment.

Cozy rooms with microwaves and mini-fridges

Rooms and Rates
A fitness center and free in-town shuttle, but no pool or true spa
While many of the hotels and lodges in Telluride and the Mountain Village are equipped with great amenities, the Hotel Telluride offers a smaller, more intimate experience. That being said, the hotel does offer a few appealing features, including a fitness center with modern cardio machines and free weights. There are two outdoor hot tubs just outside the fitness center, but they are not built into the ground. In addition to these above-ground hot tubs, the hotel also offers two treatment rooms, which they label as a spa, and a steamroom. However, there is no pool or ski rental service on-site.
Open seasonally, the Nook serves breakfast and dinner
The aptly named Nook restaurant offers a cozy space for a great breakfast buffet spread, when they aren't closed for the shoulder season. Even though the buffet isn't included in the room price, it is worth the cost to fuel up for a day of skiing or biking -- especially with the made-to-order omelet bar. The Nook doesn't serve lunch, but they do open again for the apres-ski scene and dinner.
