U.S. News Review

Nestled at the base of the Telluride Ski Resort in Mountain Village, lumière telluride makes a great home base for both winter and summer visitors. The boutique property's stunning stone façade houses simple-yet-elegant interior, characterized by hardwood floors, leather upholstery and cozy fireplaces. Many of the rooms feature kitchens and breathtaking mountain views alongside L'Occitane bath products, free Wi-Fi and Steaming Bean coffee. Guests love the hotel's relaxing atmosphere, as well as its proximity to the slopes. And in true Colorado fashion, lumière proudly offers ski valet and storage services alongside complimentary après-ski cookies and cakes. Although you may not have access to certain perks during the summer months, the hotel's on-site pool and easy access to Telluride's hiking paths and mountain shops make a warm weather visit worth considering. But many single out The Little Bar — the lumière's trendy bar and eatery — as a hotel highlight.

Critic Reviews

Lonely Planet

“Plush and fluff, it boasts seven-layer bedding, Asian-inspired contemporary design and suites with top-of-the-line appliances that few probably even use. But even with the hip sushi bar and luxuriant spa menu, its greatest appeal is zipping from the slopes to a bubble bath in minutes.”
