“Amazing Place!!!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

The staff are very friendly, always there to help in everything! The Hotel Buildings are amazing, just walk in, use the stairs are a experience. The location is perfect, the marble sidewalks, the Mount Equinox in the back, Manchester is a beautiful town, full of small details in every corner. For me, my wife and my kids was a very special vacation. Go to the Equinox should be in everyone travel list. Many special places en Vermont are close to the Hotel, so is also a very good location to stay and move during the day to visit those places.

Room Tip: The rooms in the higher floors have a very nice view!

Great resort, great service, very well kept and in a beautiful setting. Spent 2 nights at the Equinox and was very pleased with the everything about the resort. Also lots to do in the area. Highly recommend staying at the Equinox. They take luxury service seriously.

Recently stayed for a birthday surprise weekend getaway. I was surprised by the cleanliness of the room as well as the wear and tear ( not pleasantly surprised I might add). Marble top on bureau was cracked and glued together, wall had several very obvious large marks, sink area floor didn't seem very clean, etc. Only one staff member that we encountered actually seemed happy to be there (young man at the front desk)--everyone else we encountered didn't even bother to look at us, smile or engage us in even simple pleasantries. All staff seemed disengaged. I have stayed here several times before and all of these issues are new. Would highly recommend the Land Rover driving experience.

Good afternoon and thank you for your comments. I am pleased that you enjoy the Land Rover experience. Your comments about the staff are uncommon as we typically receive rave reviews about our ambassadors’ level of personalized service. Please contact me directly so I can better understand your experience, and room number.

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.

We stayed for one night and the whole experience was excellent from check-in, the room and all of the facilites in the hotel. Not cheap but certainly 5*. In particular the hotel restaurant was much above the level I would have expected for food and service.

Last month my husband and I took a quick one day overnight at the equinox. We had stayed there a few times before and were generally pleased. This time was no exception. They upgraded our room upon arrival without asking (hotel was not full so easy to do bur still a nice touch). Room seemed very large and quite comfortable. Had massage in the spa - wonderful; drinks at the bar (bartender appropriately friendly not overbearing); dinner in the marsh tavern, very good as well. Overall the hotel has a nice feel for both families (well behaved ones at least) and couples. We will return!

Room Tip: Facing the mountain, main house.

My husband and I stayed here in early May for an anniversary weekend. We had a wonderful time made special due to the exceptional service. From the greeting by the doorman to the checkin experience everyone went out of their way to please us and endure all of our needs were met. The room was well appointed and luxurious. The atmosphere of the hotel invited comfort. We especially enjoyed the spa and the pool. Also special was the service the hotel provides driving you to town for dinner or shopping. I absolutely loved the box of fresh donuts we were greeted with the next morning. If you are looking for an elegant and comfortable but not stuffy experience check this place out. We will be back.
