The ski-in/ski-out, 130-room Madeline Hotel and Residences features stone walls and archways that create a European feel. A fire roars in the lobby and the whole place is bathed in warm earth tones and rich woods. The large, elegant guestrooms carry on this color scheme, and many of them include balconies overlooking the village and mountains. The hotel’s wellness center includes a low-lit, tranquil spa, a state-of-the-art Pilates facility and a yoga studio, which features daily classes for guests looking to unwind. The Black Iron Kitchen & Bar dishes up mountain cuisine like wagyu flatiron steak with truffle fries or 18-hour pork shoulder, and the laid-back game room, M Club. There’s also sweets for the kids at Dylan’s Candy Bar and cups of Joe at the Starbucks outpost for parents.
In the Area
Check the events calendar when planning your trip. Telluride is known as the festival capital of the Southwest, and besides its well-known film festival every Memorial Day weekend, the town hosts scores of events throughout the year. Telluride attracts nearly as many visitors in summer as it does in winter. In addition to hiking and biking, golf is a strong lure. The Telluride Golf Club is perched at 9,500 feet and has fairways that wind through the mountains. In summer, Telluride Kayak School has all the equipment you need to learn how to whitewater kayak on the San Miguel and Dolores rivers. First-timers welcome. Year round, the free mountain gondola runs late, so head down the mountain to sample Telluride town’s excellent restaurants and hopping bar scene.
How to Get There
It was our second time staying here. Beautiful, classy, warm, well located hotel with a fabulous staff, great restaurant, and really comfortable rooms! The ski valet is an awesome touch as well. I wish I lived Closer to be able to enjoy Telluride and Hotel Madeline even more !
We travel often as a family, for fun, and I travel regularly for wok. We are in hotels at a minimum once per month. The Madeline just became one of our favorite hotels. We spent Thanksgiving week in a Residence at Madeline so we would have the full kitchen to cook & separate bedrooms for comfort. It was clean, spacious, high quality appliances, all the cooking items you would need, and not flimsy pots/pans, etc. (actually decent quality), amazing views and stocked with games and puzzles. The furniture was comfortable and the small details such as radiant heated floors in the bathroom, steam shower and electronic “service” light on the condo door, we’re just major pluses. The absolute best part was the service. Typically you can have great service but wish something was different about the resort. Or great resort but so/so service. That was NOT the case here. We ordered room service twice and it was super quick and delicious as it comes from the restaurant in the hotel. Every single staff member was friendly, helpful, polite and seemed very sincere. Views? Amazing! Location? Perfect! Pets? PET FRIENDLY! And they truly mean it. Ok, so the final check box is affordability- while it was not “cheap” it was by far not “expensive”. For a holiday week, in Telluride, we feel we got an incredible deal! There was a small mishap with our car keys (we opted for valet since it is the same cost as self-park, which isn’t close by). They were misplaced during a busy arrival/departure time and took a bit to find. In the meantime we were offered just about anything under the sun that we wanted, ski tickets on them, food, ice skating, anything we wanted- was on them. This far exceeded our expectations for a human error. The keys were found but we were still offered a handful of options, on them. We ended up hanging out in a Residence and eating lunch before heading out. It was a small inconvenience but they went above and beyond to make up for it. Throughout our life & our travels we have encountered other “human error” and have been inconvenienced and “comped” something to make up for it but this was like none other. Way to go Madeline! They understand the true meaning of customer service! There is nothing I would have changed or wished was different. PERFECT family holiday get away!
Everything was perfect, beautiful and clean room, great service from anyone on site, highly recommend. Access to town is very easy using the gondolas, some great hikes available near by which was a pleasure for us.
This hotel was amazing! Everyone was friendly and I can’t wait to come back next year !Do not forget to go to Allred’s mountain top restaraunt !!!It will take your breath away. Gondola ride to down town were amazing
Celebrating milestone birthdays, my friend and I made the beautiful autumn drive through the mountains up to Telluride. Arriving at this first class hotel and resort we were delighted to find a spacious and comfy room awaiting. Everything was top notch, from the beds and linens, to complimentary slippers, loofa and fine bath products in the luxurious bathroom area with extra large tub and separate shower. There’s a gourmet coffee & tea “bar” in the room and filtered water arrives as requested in etched glass bottles.
We had dinner and breakfast served to us in room which were both outstanding. Our supper server Edgar was lovely and filled us in on the area and some of the hotel’s amenities.
We did not have enough time set aside to fully enjoy treats like the in-house spa, free gondola, and gorgeous rooftop pool and hot tub. The surrounding area consists of absolutely beautiful grounds with lush stands of trees and a cool little village right there giving it a real Swiss Alps feel.
I believe this is one of the best lodgings in the Telluride area and I was told they are making some improvements to the property as well when closed before high ski season.
Exceeded my high expectations!!
