We used to stay here a lot years ago, but when it started getting too pricey we opted to stay at ski resorts. I was looking to book mud season rates online, saw a plethora of options but it was still expensive even for April. Found a package that was not bookable online so my wife called hotel directly. She wasn’t offered the rate until she asked for the Sweet Season in Vermont package. It included upgraded deluxe and full breakfast for two people. While it still wasn’t cheap it was better than the rack rates offered.
We arrived Sunday for 2 night stay, check in took 30 seconds, hotel is meticulously clean and very well kept. All the staff is friendly and unpretentious. Room was huge plenty of windows, bed great, bath was huge, and the bath products are nice. The free coffee and tea in lobby as well as free newspapers. Breakfast is Marsh Tavern was absolutely delicious I ordered off the menu the first day and then tried the continental breakfast the second day. The breakfast off the main menu is the way to go, and they give you way too much food.
Shopping in Manchester is good but tons of empty stores, people we spoke to said high rents were driving tenants away. Orvis is the best store of them all, and don’t miss Orvis outlet down the road. Plenty of restaurants, haven’t been to Garlic Johns since the late 1990’s and its still good. Wanted a photo of my wife and I out front of hotel, general mgr. just happened to be outside and volunteered to take it, and then about a half a dozen other photos (nice). I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again in future.
