History of the New Sheridan Hotel

The New Sheridan HotelOpened in 1891 just four years after Telluride was founded, the New Sheridan Hotel has been welcoming guests for over 100 years. Like the town itself, the hotel was built in the distinguished Victorian style with the riches from gold and silver strikes in the surrounding San Juan Mountains. The original Sheridan Hotel was a three-story wooden structure built directly east of the courthouse. Three years later, in 1894, the original building was destroyed by fire. The present brick building was erected next door to the burnt lot, and reopened as the New Sheridan Hotel in 1895. A detailed renovation in 1995 reinstated this historic treasure to its former glory and added the renowned New Sheridan Chop House and additional rooms.

The New Sheridan Hotel was recently accepted as a member of the National Trust for Historic Hotels of America, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington, D.C. The National Trust, founded in 1949, is America’s leader in the historic preservation movement with the mission of protecting the irreplaceable. The New Sheridan Hotel's commitment to historic preservation is recognized among 185 hotel members in 44 states, Canada, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The New Sheridan Hotel is dedicated to faithfully maintaining the historic integrity, architecture and ambience of the hotel.
