New Sheridan Historic Telluride Hotel
This hotel was built in 1891 during the gold rush. In 1895 the hotel burned down and was rebuilt. The hotel has remained standing and open for business ever since then. The hotel rooms have been renovated with a modern feel, but you can tell just by looking at this hotel from the outside that it is a piece of local history.
Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank in Telluride just a few years before this hotel was built. The New Sheridan Inn consequently served as a setting for the infamous movie; Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

New Sheridan Hotel Dining
Chop House Restaurant – This fine dining restaurant is located inside of the New Sheridan Hotel on Colorado Ave. Food is prepared using local ingredients and fresh seafood that is flown into the Telluride Airport daily. Wine is served from a nitrogen wine cruvinet; this piece of equipment uses nitrogen as a means of preventing oxygen from entering the pouring system. This helps to preserve wines that are being served by the glass.
New Sheridan Bar – This bar was built in 1895 after a fire ripped through the New Sheridan and forced the entire hotel to be rebuilt. The bar hasn’t changed much in the last 100+ years. This is still a great place to enjoy an evening drink.
Parlor – This cafe is open during breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours. This is a great place to eat a hot breakfast before you head out onto the mountain for the day.
