With historic cachet to spare, the New Sheridan has been the place to hang your hat in Telluride for a dozen decades running. The place first opened in 1895—a year after the old Sheridan Hotel burned down—and has seen it all in the time since, from mudslides overwhelming the lobby in the early 1900s to a luxurious renovation in the early 2000s. Now the hotel is modern in every respect, and a comfortable, classic, and casual balance has been adeptly struck, and the historic bar and New Sheridan Chop House are among the best spots to imbibe and dine in town.
