Hotel or Inn Recommendations

Hello. My husband and I are going to an event at Tanglewood and are looking for hotel recommendations. We're considering staying at Cranwell or the Red Lion Inn. Can anyone tell me if the rooms are nice. Are they updated and elegant or dated? We're also interested in upscale B&B recommendations in Lenox. Thank you in advance.

Although it's been a good many years since I last stayed there, I'm sure the Birchwood Inn is still lovely.

The Red Lion is lovely & well-appointed. Cranwell is upscale & very posh.

The lodging pages have hundreds of reviews. With no disrespect meant to my fellow regulars, we are no more discerning than those folks and you will get a much more rounded point of view than my one bad or good night.

Weightleigh Hotel is perhaps the most luxurious (and expensive) hotel in the Berkshires. It is right next to Tanglewood.

For something more typical of a high end B&B, I was recently in Lenox and visited with some friends who were staying at the Garden Gables Inn. They highly recommended it.

The Red Lion Inn has some luxurious rooms and some that are more modest- nice but lacking an en-suite bath.

The Candlelight Inn is very nice in Lenox; the Apple Tree Inn is also good - it's right across the street from Tanglewood

I have stayed at the Red Lion many times. It is old and quaint. The amenities are not state-of-the-art, but to me and most of the people who stay there that is part of the charm. It is Old New England.
