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
Stayed at the Madeline when we visited Telluride to see all the fall colors. Our trip was amazing and everyone at the Madeline was amazing! I would recommend staying here if wanted to stay in the Mountain Village.
First of all, the views are extraordinary as are the accommodations. But you also have to mention the staff. Everyone we dealt with was friendly, accommodating and highly professional. They were to a person likeable and gave the feeling that they really liked when they were and what they were doing.
Madeline is a great property. The staff is over the top friendly and helpful.
Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed linens are nicely pressed and kept fresh everyday.
My only negatives were the pillows are really large and hard on your neck.
Starbucks is easily accessed as are several restaurants.
Free gondola ride to town is scenic and also provides lots of shopping and activities.
