I booked a special night away at the Equinox and, after seeing pictures online, decided on a room at the 1811 House- part of the Inns at the Equinox. On check in we discovered that the 1811 House is extremely rustic- low ceilings, very shabby furnishings, and quiet to the point of creepy. From photos I expected quaintness and antiques, but I must stress that it really felt old and desolate and not in any way like the resort itself. The front desk did their best to change our accommodations but, unfortunately, all that remained was a room in the townhouses, which was basically
like staying in a Motel 6.
Again, the staff was lovely and did their best to change things last minute on a busy weekend. I only wish the hotel website had been more forthcoming about what to expect from the 1811 House.
The spa is luxurious. Great massage with Wendy. Lovely hotel in every other respect. Incidentally, lots and lots of families and young kids (no problem for me).
