Hotel VT really takes their service to the next level. We had a wonderful stay over Thanksgiving. The mushroom toast with a poached egg at Juniper was a most delicious breakfast. Great rooms, lobby and staff
Hi, my name is Toby and I’m a Tibetan terrier! I just visited Vermont to see my human sister and stayed in the dog-friendly Hotel Vermont. My parents had to pay extra for me — I think I heard them say it was $50 dog bones or something like that. But it was worth it! Their rooms always are so thoughtfully decorated with built-in wood furniture and comfy platform beds. But for a pup like me, the hotel was particularly well suited. 1. Excellent dog bed provided! I took to it right away and fell comfortably asleep right next to my parents in their big king bed. My mother brought a little pad for me to sleep on just in case. But I jumped on that dog bed and claimed first dibs. 2. They put all the dogs on the second floor. I loved hearing and sniffing all the dogs as I trotted down the hall. I also really enjoyed chatting and socializing with some cute fellow canines as we waited for the elevator. But best of all, since I’m not so perfectly house trained all the time, my parents were very glad they didn’t have to wait a long time for an elevator and could use the stairs when I started to make that peculiar whimper noise that lets them know something is up. And since we had to go in and out a bunch of times, not having to go to a high floor meant we had more time to relax and hang out. 3. The hotel staff greeted us with a delicious dog biscuit when we first arrived — yum! Not only was it tasty but it made me and my mum and dad feel very welcome. 4. This hotel’s location rocks because right down the street is a park that runs alongside Lake Champlain. I met many a fun pal during my … business activities there and my parents enjoyed the beautiful views and friendly interactions, too. I never really had the chance to go into civilization during my visit and my parents think that was just as well. I got all my zoomies out of me before heading back to the room where I could be content and just hang out. 5. Decor. Truthfully I think the hotel might shuttle out the more tired carpets from other rooms to kit out the dog rooms and suites. When I came in from the park damp and somewhat muddy, and had a quick shake before Mum could grab the old towel we brought from home, she didn’t get that strained, guilty look she gets when I mess things up at her friends’ houses. Plus the leather reading chair and dark blue couch were just ideal for a muddy dog like me. I left no lasting damage. The coffee table was made from some distressed wood so when I got a teething surge and wanted desperately to chomp on something, my brief attempts before Mum replaced the table with a chew toy left no visible marks on the hotel furniture. And she looked visibly relieved. 6. Size of room. I don’t know if my parents got super lucky but our suite was bigger than my sister’s apartment! In fact my sister offered to have my parents and me stay at her place and she would stay at ours. But we said no way! For one thing she has terrible dog biscuits. When my mum was busy taking a shower, Dad and I played “run after the ball, catch it and keep it away from Dad” and I had loads of room to run. And because there are no rooms on the first floor, Dad could bounce the ball and I could galumph around without worrying we were waking anyone up below us. All in all, I would give this hotel five high-paws! Best of all, my parents were relaxed and happy the whole time which, quite frankly, is not always the case when we travel as a family. I even heard my dad say as we drove back home, “That dog charge seemed a little high at first —“ “But it was well worth it,” my mom said, finishing his sentence. They do that a lot, complete each other’s sentences. Human parents can be like that, sigh. Good night and happy trails!…
Staff is great. Very helpful and accommodating.Perfect Location.Location is in walking distance to Church street and and the Flynn Theater. The bar is a really nice place to have a drink. Have stayed there many times. Very consistent Hotel.
This was our second stay. Everything was wonderful. The property has many unique touches that make for a memorable experience. The apothocaries, robes and coffee mugs are locally made I recommend a corner king for stellar views of the lake.
The whole experience is fantastic. Plus centrally located both to the lake and church street. The rooms are interesting and comfortable. if you are lucky enough to get a view of the lake, you get a sense of the Adirondacks.
