Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection Completes Property-wide Reimagination

Telluride’s Most Luxurious Resort Welcomes Guests and Locals with Redesigned Guestrooms, Refreshed Public Spaces and New One-Of-A-Kind Experiences


TELLURIDE, Colo. (May 19, 2021) – Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection today announces the completion of a property-wide reimagination, bringing a new tier of luxury to Telluride. The resort unveils 83 newly transformed guestrooms and modernized public spaces, including Timber Room, a vibrant new indoor-outdoor bar and lounge that first debuted in January 2021, and Alpine Swim Club, a picturesque outdoor pool and dining terrace. Alongside the physical transformation, Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection debuts new “exclusively Madeline” experiences for Summer, inviting guests to bring home stories of one-of-a-kind luxury adventures in the Rocky Mountains. From foraging the verdant mountainside with the executive chef to taking on Colorado’s backcountry from above on a paragliding tour, adventure abounds at the chic Telluride retreat this season.


“The design and experience evolution at Madeline has been outstanding. From the transformed social spaces with the most exceptional culinary offerings in Telluride to the stunning new guest rooms and ‘Only at Madeline’ active experiences, we can unequivocally say that Madeline is the most luxurious resort in Telluride,” said Bryan Woody, general manager, Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection. “It is a tremendous pleasure for all of us at Madeline to welcome guests to our newly reimagined resort.”


Liubasha Rose of Rose Ink Workshop designed the dramatic guest rooms to be a natural extension of the newly reimagined public spaces with an organic material palette and textural elements. An expert at artfully blending concepts, Rose looked to the region’s natural mountainscape and distinct seasons for inspiration when handpicking wood-grained walls, chiseled marble tabletops and sweater stitch carpets. Urban black steel desks, leather hooks from Telluride’s local Crossbow Leather shop and oversized art by Hana Margetson-Rushmore stay true to Telluride’s vernacular in a modern and harmonious way. The spacious accommodations feature private balconies with mountain or village views and spa-like bathrooms with separate showers and deep soaking tubs, featuring a bath ritual designed to help reach ultimate relaxation. Additionally, each room boasts a new “adventure bar,” which offers guests a collection of items and gear for mountain exploration.


“For the design of Madeline, we pulled inspiration from alpine visions of uncovered memories; an illustration of a carved wooden house in the snowy woods in a treasured childhood book of Russian Fables, the train interior in Hitchock’s The Lady Vanishes and a vintage postcard with ski tracks on fresh snow. Channeling these personal connections brought feeling into every detail,” said Liubasha Rose, creative director, Rose Ink Workshop.


To complement the new interiors, the resort introduces new experiences and events to be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors. Throughout the summer season, guests can bike the San Juan Mountains’ winding trails, motorcycle through the 263-mile San Juan Skyway loop, fly fish for trophy trout in the San Miguel River and pursue other adrenaline-seeking expeditions. More serene offerings—sunrise mountain bathing on the San Sofia Platform or horseback riding through wildflower meadows to a private saddlebag brunch—embrace mindfulness in nature. Guests can also uncover hidden gems in Telluride with insider adventures, including a foraging experience with the resort’s Executive Chef Bill Greenwood, curated exclusively for Madeline guests. During this experience, in particular, guests will discover the many wild, edible greens, mushrooms and other delicacies found in Telluride, learn how to utilize these ingredients in delicious dishes and enjoy a private meal prepared with the day’s bounty.


Located at 10,540 feet, Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection debuts a vibrant new summer destination, Alpine Swim Club, a picturesque outdoor pool and a social terrace with sweeping mountain top views. Poised to become the most sought-after gathering place in town, the club offers guests an incredibly scenic option for time spent poolside, featuring a menu of Alpine-inspired shareable healthy bites and refreshing signature cocktails infused with local ingredients. Whether meditating with the sunrise or soaking up afternoon rays, Alpine Swim Club is an elevated atmosphere for relaxing before or after a day of adventure.
