First of all, let me say that the Mountain View Grand is a treasure, a gorgeous, old-school grand hotel. Driving up the hill to check in, I am always just amazed that I get to stay in that big, yellow palace. The views of the White Mountains are surreal in their vastness. Being on the front porch of the Mountain... More

This hotel is beautiful and offers many activities and amenities for families and adults alike. The only gripe is that as a historic hotel, it does not have up to date infrastructure (I.e. central air) which means that most rooms rely on window ACs in the summer. This isn't a huge hindrance, but ceiling fans aid circulation on summer nights.... More

My family and I stayed for a few nights to go to Santa's village. The views are beautiful! The staff were very friendly upon arrival and greeted myself, husband and toddler.

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the last grand old hotels of the White Mountains of NH. The mountain views are spectacular. The resort food was pricey but typical as expected.

Great location for exploring the White Mountains in style. Superb staff, very attentive and accommodating. Rooms are clean and with game rooms both in the hotel and the clubhouse, an indoor and outdoor pool, sling with scheduled activities, there's plenty to go right on site.

The main pull of this hotel is the scenic location perched atop New Hampshire's White Mountains region.

An idyllic setting with stunning views. Double queen room was comfortable and conveniently located albeit the view was less than ideal. As I was there mainly to sleep, this was not a problem.
