Whether you’ve come for the skiing or the summer sports and festivals, the Lumiere is a tiny gem of a place that expertly walks the line between luxury and casual mountain style, quirk and class. With only 11 guestrooms and 18 larger one- to four-bedroom residences, it marries an intimate, romantic feel with Telluride’s bustling social scene.
Bed & Bath
The decor mixes rich, convivial red, orange and chestnut with creamy walls and huge windows. Rich textures, from Egyptian cotton linens to velvety throw pillows and microsuede headboards, invite lounging. In-room kitchen facilities with Subzero mini-fridges, microwaves and coffeemakers are handy, as there’s no restaurant and only a small room service menu.
The “front desk” is nothing more than one of the wise concierges sitting at a small table by the fire. But don’t let that fool you: They’re endlessly knowledgeable and helpful. Head to The Little Bar for tapas and handcrafted cocktails during happy hour, then for dinner from 5-8pm Wednesday through Sunday. The patio outside Little Bar — which has a warm dipping pool, a cold plunge pool and a hot tub — is small but has majestic mountain views. In the summer it plays host to live music.
In the Area
Making your resort base in Mountain Village means a (free) gondola ride down to the town of Telluride to see the historic “painted lady” houses and magnificent Victorian buildings, including the New Sheridan Hotel and Chop House, which dates from the silver boom at the turn of the last century. The main drag of eateries and shops is here too, to say nothing of the site of the first bank Butch Cassidy ever robbed (call local guide Ashley Boling at 970-728-6639 for a Wild West tour). Sample the mountain’s best restaurants: lunch at the outdoor bistro Bon Vivant and dinner at the 11,966-feet-high Alpino Vino Italian restaurant, or at the Tomboy Tavern gastropub in the village. Summer in Telluride means festivals almost every weekend from May to October, with food, drink and music events featuring heavily alongside the growing film festival. Winter, of course, means skiing, skiing and more skiing.
How to Get There
Could not fault anything in this hotel- perfect location, most friendly and helpful staff. Room was excellent- large spacious room and bathroom. We would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely come back.
This intimate hotel is a hidden gem in Telluride!! They’ve thought of everything and have amazing concierge services to make your stay memorable. I highly recommend this hotel over the other, larger hotels in the area. The location is perfect, and the small touches they provide add to the quality of the experience. We will certainly be back!!
This is hands down my favorite place to stay no matter where I travel! The hotel is awesome but the staff make it the best place you can stay. It's really nice. It only has 29 units so not a million people running around all of the time. It has all of the amenities you could need. But again, the staff makes you feel like royalty. They attend to your every need. They can help you book anything and everything. They are knowledgeable about the area and can always provide recommendations. You'll never have to ask for a bottle of water! I could go on and on but I'll refrain. We will return to Telluride soon and we will be staying here...each and every time we return! Thanks again for everything Lumiere!
