Hotels for September 25-28, 2020
Friday 9/25 and Saturday 9/26 Reservations: Telluride, CO
Telluride in September is the “High Season” for fall leaf viewing and the rates usually hover around $400, our rates are a bit more than they would be at other times yet we have negotiated great room rates with 20 rooms in our block for “Driving for kids” at the Mountainside Inn in downtown Telluride. We have set up 6 regular king rooms, 11 river view king rooms, and 3 kitchenettes in this block. Mention the “Driving for Kids Group” before booking to receive the discounted rate which must be guaranteed with a credit card. There will be no room tax because the RRR is a 501c3 charity. This block guarantee is only available until August 1, 2020.
King rooms are $129 a night plus an 8% reservation fee. Total of $278.64 for two nights
River View King rooms are $139 a night plus an 8% reservation fee. Total of $300.24 for two nights
Kitchenette rooms are $139 a night plus an 8% reservation fee. Total of $300.24 for two nights
They do offer a one time fee of $15 for insurance on your booking. These are british cars remember. So just in case you don't make the reservation for whatever reason.
To reserve a room, please call the local reservations agent at Alpine Lodging Telluride: (888) 893-0158 and tell him you are with Driving for Kids for the special rate.
Now for the less good news: These are condominium units and have individual ownership hence the reservation fee and the deposit and cancellation policy. The initial, non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total rent will be due at the time of booking a reservation. The full, non-refundable balance is due ten (10) days prior to arrival. The bed in each king room is a split king. This means they can set up the beds as 2 twins in each room if needed. Kings sleep two only. The kitchenettes have a queen and twin bed in them and sleep 3 total.
