When we pulled into the resort and checked in, we had a pleasant experience. Staff was great at the front desk. Very prompt to getting us checked in after a long day of travel. The lobby looked amazing with a beautiful mountain view as you walk through the doors.
When we booked this hotel. we reserved a double king alpine view. The photos they had on the website of the room views we thought we would be getting was exciting. Those same photos made the room appeared well-lit, spacious and updated. When we walked into the room, it was quiet the opposite unfortunately. The windows were small, didnt have a balcony that appeared wall-to-wall in the photos, and it was very dark since our window was obscured by trees on top of looking directly towards a neighbor's balcony.
The positives though were that they did equip the room with a few fans (which i thought was odd) and a humidifier which was very much needed. The issue we found ourselves though was there was a lack of convenient spots for power outlets. If you have an extension cord you can travel with, you should pack it. Some of our outlets were not working. The lamps also did not have outlets built in as well. This was probably the biggest gripe I had throughout the stay.
Bathroom was nice and spacious. Loved the double vanity sinks that were available. Very clean and not once did my wife and I feel like we were on top of each other.
We also visited the restaurant bar one evening. The food was delicious for what we had. The staff there was also very attentive and had no problems having a conversation with their guests when it was as slow as it was when we went.
The breakfast cafe was okay. Had I realized it was an easy walk to the mountain village in our first morning there, I wouldve went out that way for some breakfast but it also didn't help that it was 10 degrees the morning of.
Overall, this is a nice resort to stay in if you plan on spending more of your time over in Telluride or in the Mountain Village outside of the ski season. We had a great experience with all the staff we encountered and no pressing issues with our room- just didn't hit my expectations after making a 11 hour trek by flight and car in one day. Keep an open mind and you'll definitely enjoy your trip here.
The moment we stepped out of our shuttle bus we were greeted by a wonderful and welcoming staff. This weekend is one of the most important event in my family. We are celebrating the wedding of my youngest daughter and all our guests (45)were staying at this fabulous resort. The hotel location is amazingly breathtaking.The Front Desk was so smooth handling the checkin process.The Altezza Reception for the Farewell Breakfast was flawless and delicious. We also had the best experience from their spa. So, overall I will highly recommend this resort.
The game room is home to Ping-Pong and other old-school arcade games.
Splash around the indoor/outdoor pool when you're not zooming down the mountain on your skis, or simply enjoy a nice, relaxing float.
The kiddie pool is located within the spa, and is a perfect place for kids to play while mom and dad get their treatments. The waterslide is nearby, as well.

The Art of Smart Timing
Telluride is a four-season vacation destination, and so is the Peaks. If you're looking to make some turns on the slopes, then winter is the season for you; if you're looking to get some hiking or mountain biking in, we recommend visiting in the spring, summer, and fall.

Families can easily walk into Mountain Village from the resort, and jump on the free gondola into town.
