If you want good access to the slopes and the historic core, it is difficult to top this boutique hotel located a stone's throw from the gondola station in downtown Telluride. Behind the attractive redbrick exterior, the rooms and suites are at once classic and contemporary, with dark woods, white bedding, and eye-catching art and photos on the walls. The restaurant, Cosmopolitan, is a good pick for dinner or a handcrafted cocktail at the bar.
