The Beautiful Telluride

Overview

Quote:
Telluride is very attractive throughout the year. During winter time, Telluride is a favorite ski destination with its slopes. At summer time, Telluride is famous for its beatiful scenery. I think that's why Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman decided to get married in this small city.Quick Tips: During summer time, which is considered low season, the cost of accomodations is less than half of what it costs during snow season. However, if you love skiing, go for it. The money you spend will be worth it.Best Way To Get Around: You don't really need car to get around in Telluride.

Mountain Lodge at Telluride

Hotel | "Wyndham Mountain Lodge"

Quote:
Wyndham Hotel and Resort have three diferrent properties in Telluride. All of them are excellent, but my favorite is the Wyndham Mountain Lodge. The room is designed beautifully with fireplaces and CD player. The suites are equipped with full kitchen and dining tables. The bathroom includes jacuzzi enough for two people. From the window of the bathroom, you will be able to see the view of Rocky Mountains. During winter time, the cost for staying at this property is around $400, but it only costs around $200 during low season. Anyway, they offer better rates if you are a member of AAA.

Hiking and Mountain Biking

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

There are a lot of different hiking and mountain biking trails at Telluride. You can ask the concierge of the hotel for trails information. The information will include the estimated time, the difficulties of the trails, and the trail map. Hiking is a good way to enjoy the beautiful view of Telluride. Some hiking trails end with waterfalls. If you love mountain bikings, you can rent the bikes for about $20 at one of the sport stores at downtown Telluride. You will be able to ride cable car from the top of the mountain to get into the downtown of Telluride.

Golden Door Spa

Attraction

Quote:
One of the reasons that Wyndham Peaks Resort is voted to be one of the best spa destinations is because of the Golden Door Spa. The Golden Door Spa offers a complete range of treatments. You will enjoy their sport facilities, including the swimming pool with beautiful scenery next to it. Compared with other resort spas, this is definitely one of the best. The cost of a half day treatment is about $250, but it is totally good value. Combining great treatment with beautiful views makes the Golden Door Spa the best spa in my opinion.

Cable Car

Story/Tip

Quote:
To get to downtown Telluride, you can ride the cable car from the top of the mountain where most of the hotels are located. This cable car is the ski lift during snow season. Riding a cable car is the most convenient way to get into downtown Telluride, where you can find a lot of restaurants, bars, and a lot of stores. The cable car station is right at the downtown Telluride, and the other end station is right by the properties of Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. During summertime, riding a cable car is free.
