Alpine Lodging Telluride offers accommodations in Telluride and Mountain Village for every price range. Our properties are organized within a Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze rating system that ensures our clients are aware of the available amenities at each location. The ratings for individual units are relative to each property based on the property's overall quality.
To receive a Platinum Alpine Lodging Telluride rating, a property will have high-end appointments, fixtures, and furnishings in a unified and updated décor. Amenities may include the latest electronics, along with a private hot tub, sauna, or steam showers. The property interior should include a formal dining room, media rooms, and/or additional services such as valet or concierge service, or fitness facilities.
Kitchens and bathrooms play a large part in the Alpine Lodging Telluride Platinum rating, with top-of-the-line appliances, dishes and glassware, and functionality. Square footage also contributes to the top score, with ample bedrooms and bathrooms, and roomy living spaces.
Only 10% of our Telluride rentals will achieve the Platinum rating. Condo complexes offering Platinum level rentals include Lorian, River Club, Telemark, Tres Casas, Villas at Cortina and Villas at Tristant.
Why Go Platinum?
Gold-rated Alpine Lodging Telluride condominiums and private homes are typically recently built, recently remodeled, or extensively redecorated, with tastefully chosen finishes and furnishings. Modern, upgraded kitchens and/or bathrooms and other upgrades that make a place feel special (i.e. hardwood floors, artwork, wet bar, leather sofas, custom tile) have been included in the designs. The rental will also typically include up-to-date electronics and appliances.
12-15% of our lodging in Telluride falls in the Gold category. Condo complexes that offer gold-rated rentals include Bear Creek Lodge, Blue Mesa, Cimarron Lodge, Hotel Columbia, Telluride Lodge and Westermere.
Why Choose Gold?
The Telluride rentals that receive the Silver rating have been updated in the past decade, either partially or completely remodeled. The décor holds true to a style or period, and furnishings are appropriate for the space. Every Silver-rated unit has some extra amenities, such as access to hot tubs, wireless internet, or a fireplace, as well as modern kitchens and bathrooms. Almost all have their own washer/dryer.
In the Silver category, you can tell these accommodations have been cared for. And it's the most broadly defined grouping, resulting in some Silvers with a nearly-gold appeal, and others just passing the grade.
Why Choose Silver?
The Telluride vacation rentals that have a Bronze rating are generally furnished in a simple style. The décor may be dated, but functional. Appliances and electronics are operational, but many have not been replaced for some years, simply because they still work. A few of our Bronze properties have extras such as private washer/dryer, fireplace, or access to a community hot tub.
If the condo or hotel room has not had a major makeover in 10 years or is partially updated (i.e. new bathrooms only), it will fall in the Bronze category. For lodging that is quite adequate for safe, warm, clean stays, without any pretense, this is the rating that fits.
Why choose Bronze?
