We stayed in Hanover as part of a two-week college tour. My wife likes the predictability of national chains. I like the boutique hotels. I won in Hanover (mainly since there are no chain hotels). This hotel is great. Very trendy and upscale yet still friendly and warm.
We were greeted by the valet who parked the car and helped with the bags. Front desk check–in was as smooth as silk and the room, although a bit small, was nicely appointed and very fresh. Based on reviews I read here on TA, I requested a corner room facing the street. There are windows on both walls that open for a nice cross breeze. There was a little street noise until 10:30 or so, but I didn’t close the windows until 6:00 the next morning (the rest of the world started moving before I was ready).
There are a plethora of restaurants within easy walking distance (we ate at Molly’s for dinner and Lou’s for breakfast) and a terrific little bakery right across the street – gotta try the chocolate croissants!
We were there to tour Dartmouth – only a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel. I noticed the Hanover Inn right across from Dartmouth and took a look in the lobby. I think they were going for “eclectic” but it looked more “garage sale” to me. I was almost swayed to stay at the HI since it is closer to Dartmouth, but the SSS is only a few minutes by foot farther away…I’m glad I stayed at the SSS. If my daughter decides to go to Dartmouth, the SSS will be our home base for visits. Great hotel, friendly service and good value.
