There are so many more options in Manchester to choose from. The Equinox's time has passed, as the property is sorely in need of an update, and the staff's caring for its guests is lacking, at best. Sure, if you're going to have a big, impersonal event, this may fit the bill due to its meeting rooms, etc. However, if you're going for leisure or business/leisure, pass it by...and I say this as a repeat customer. Not making that mistake again and I rue the fact that I have to leave this type of review.

We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful, and my granddaughters loved the pool and fire pit. Our room overlooked the mountains and the courtyard where the tulips and trees were in full bloom. It was so pretty. Each night we made smores at the fire pit. The staff surprised my young granddaughter with balloons and a little stuffed puppy that looked like the Equinox's welcome puppy, Cooper. It just made her day (and ours too). Our room had plenty of space which was nice with the little ones, and was beautifully appointed. And, the staff was so helpful and friendly. Truly focused on customer service. The location is great, and the sidewalks make for an easy walk around town where there is much to do. This was my third time at the hotel over the years, and I'd definitely go back. I Love, Love Love the Equinox!

Upon arrival for a romantic weekend package I was informed that the chophouse and many of the resort features were closed The resort had not disclosed this on its website They also have not made any arrangements with any of the other local high end restaurants to cover reservations leaving you with almost no option but to eat at their marsh tavern with an extremely limited menu. As well as still charging a resort fee per night. The exterior of the property is also poorly maintained with wood rot surrounding the spa building and rear stair entry. With the many other options in the area when I return in July for my Land Rover experience I will definitely not be returning to this property

I have always wanted to stay at the Equinox. It has the reputation of being a luxury resort but after spending time here I have to say we were disappointed. When we arrived they pointed us in the direction of their back parking lot, no one offered to help with luggage and we walked down several long hallways to get to our room. This would have been extremely challenging for older individuals or families. We had paid extra for a room with a view of the mountains. While we could see mountains, we also overlooked the construction going on at the townhomes, a driveway and a tennis court. Not things I would have expected when paying extra for a view. The hotel is older and that is part of the charm but again, for the price I would have expected higher quality amenities. The light in the bathroom was hanging out of the ceiling a bit and flashing, the ceiling tiles were not in place and the bathroom had zero charm. I do have to say though that the shower pressure was great. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. We tried to reserve a spot at the pool the second we arrived but they were booked out days in advance. Something I understand being that it was school vacation but it would have been nice to have that listed on their website while booking to prompt you to call ahead. This was the one thing my son was excited about and we would have picked a different stay all together if we had known this wouldn’t be an option. Dinner was also disappointing. My sons meal was good and the kids menu has cute/clever names but for the adults, for the pricing of their meals I expected more. My steak was fatty and lacked all flavor and the steak fries were over cooked. My mother had a wonderful salad and the duck pot pie was okay she said. They brought out “fresh” biscuits at the end of the meal. They were cold, dense and tasted like they had fake bacon in them. The butter was cold too and then they had a side of Jalapeño jelly. I get what they were trying to do with the food but it simply does not hit the mark. After dinner we went back to our room to watch a movie because there was nothing else to do but the TV was so outdated you could barely see the picture. Most hotels now have smart TVs but this one still had on demand movie ordering ($20+ in most cases) and limited selections. There is no coffee makers in the room currently but they were nice enough to bring one when we asked. It was however broken. I felt like the staff didn’t want to be there or something. They were short and not very friendly. The only personality and positive interaction we had is with the restaurant staff. I would not recommend this resort and will not be returning.

We had an excellent experience at the Equinox. We brought our 60 lbs. dog with no problem. She got lots of friendly pats from the staff. Room 237 was roomy, great views, corner room. Loved the gentle hiking in the Equinox preserve. If you can, get to the pond. It’s beautiful. We ate at the Marsh Tavern one night. The food was varied, well flavored and well timed. Loved the bartender’s friendly, polished service. The front staff, the morning housekeeper- Gretchen- also added a warm, kind tone to start our day. Thanks Equinox. We’d love to come back for another off season visit.
