We have been coming here for years due to the great accommodations, but had always avoided the restaurants. So last month during our stay we ate in and loved it. The food was creative, fresh and met our family's numerous needs. The prices were lower than we expected and the desserts were amazing. A favorite resort that cooks!

Room Tip: The south side may be quieter.

Excellent management, service. Hilton needs to learn a thing or two from this property. Management was amazing. We had an issue with noise outside our room, and they took care of it amazingly. Food is excellent at the resort as well.

My family and I have returned to the Equinox several times over the last few years. We love everything about the experience of staying at the Equinox. Literally, the sense of peace and calm that comes over us during our stays there is palpable. The rooms are luxurious and well appointed. There are many common spaces that are beautiful and allow for different places to get away within the resort. The grounds are perfectly manicured and offer hikes and gorgeous vistas. The spa is perfection. The firepit at night is an incredible treat. All of the restaurants offer wonderful dining experiences, the best in the region. The staff could not be more professional and courteous. We especially appreciate Astri and Richard Hom, both of whom always help with questions and suggestions. We just returned from a visit and already I can't wait to return.

My wife & I spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Equinox Hotel with friends. Our experience was perfect from the moment we parked the car at the front door to the time we checked out. Brian at reception was more than welcoming; Robin, Sharon and the rest of the Marsh Tavern staff went out of their way to make our dining experience wonderful. Briton at the Spa... The best massage I've ever had! The resort has everything one requires for a Top Notch Vermont vacation. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. This was our second trip to the Equinox and it will not be our last

The Equinox is a very upscale hotel resort and there's a lot nice to say about it: The beds were comfortable and the down pillows were to die for. The buffet breakfast was wonderfully diverse and delicious with the food changed frequently (not your 4-hour old scrambled eggs and meats). The indoor heated pool looked very inviting. Having visited in November, I can't comment on the golf course, tennis or other outdoor facilities. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. So WHY, you ask, did I give this hotel a poor review? Because all the fine and fancy amenities are worthless if you can't get a good night's sleep!!! My room, room 240, was incredibly noisy! In the bedroom, the heat vent would periodically send out a metallic whooshing noise at about the noise level of a dishwasher. Not to be outdone, the bathroom would offer another periodic noise, a whirring sound that would cause the bathroom to vibrate and rattle. I fell asleep out of sheer exhaustion but after about 2 hours, the noises woke me and I was done sleeping. This was like having a room next to BOTH the airport (WHOOSH!) and the train station (RATTLE!). Maybe not all the rooms in the Equinox are like this, but be prepared. If you get this type of room, immediately ask for another! Or bring industrial strength earplugs.

Room Tip: Watch out for room 240!

Been here 4 times or more and the service remains excellent, rooms spacious and very comfortable. Great spa facility makes for a relaxing stay. Take advantage of the hiking opportunities instead of spending too much time at the outlets.

This is our second year spending the weekend at the Equinox before Thanksgiving and the Holiday rush. This was an extra special weekend for us because we got engaged in front of one of the beautiful fireplaces. Every staff member is extremely friendly and accommodating. We had an outstanding dinner at the Chop House. Our waiter Tom was probably one of the best waiters we have ever had. Can't wait to go back next year.
