This is the New Sheridan Hotel on Colorado St in Telluride, CO. It has a pretty cool history along with an historic bar and a great steakhouse. On our last night in Telluride, we had dinner there and it was incredible! The shrimp cocktail had the biggest shrimp we ever saw! And the steaks were pretty tasty as well. The snow just started dumping that night, too as you can see with the little white streaks in the shot. The snow just made everything look so awesome in that town. Here is a little more about the New Sheridan from their website:
During the San Juan Mountain gold rush, the smell of worn leather and the sounds of hard labor filled the air of Telluride. As precious metals were unearthed, more prospectors and profiteers moved to the area. The growing mining town of Telluride needed boarding for its passers-by and thus the Sheridan Hotel was constructed in 1891.
Destroyed by fire in 1894, the New Sheridan was built, this time in brick, in 1895. As decades passed and Telluride’s riches changed from gold to powdery snow, the New Sheridan Hotel evolved as well. Recently renovated with 26 handsome rooms, the New Sheridan is Telluride’s newest oldest hotel.
Home to the town’s oldest bar, the Historic New Sheridan Bar, a world-renowned restaurant, the Chop House. The New Sheridan has raised impeccable quality and service to a new level. Offering rich tradition paired with historic ambience, we invite you to discover the New Sheridan.
This is the only historic Telluride hotel and one of the few of Colorado’s historic hotels dating from the mining days.
