New Sheridan: place to be and be seen during Telluride Film Festival

Parlor This week, Telluride is positively a-glitter with gems, on screen and off.

Critics often describe Telluride Film Festival, this long Labor Day weekend, September 3 – September 6, as a “gem,” even a “crown jewel” among the roughly 1,700 similar events around the world.

There are real gems at local galleries too: The Telluride Gallery of Fine Art (Hollywood fav Lori Rodkin for one), Lustre (Gurhan) and Dolce (Pamela Froman and Katey Brunini, also Tinseltown queens).

The historic New Sheridan Hotel is another sparkler. The Grande Dame of the town –  the heart and soul of the social scene 118 years ago, back in the days Telluride’s streets were paved with gold –  was restored to her Victorian splendor by world-famous interior designer Nina Campbell a little over a year ago. And this year, once again, the New Sheridan is the place to be and be seen over the Telluride Film Festival weekend.

Strategically located on Main Street between the historic Sheridan Opera House and The Nugget, major Festival venues, The New Sheridan is the Telluride Film Festival’s Hospitality Partner, its rooms booked solid with Festival guests, including the super novas.

The man to know at the New Sheridan is General Manager Ray Farnsworth, also a very popular local. Ray oversees every detail of the operation: hotel, restaurant (The Chop House), bar, cafe (The Parlor) and rooms.
