We have been to Holland more than a few times now, usually just for the day but when we stay in town we like the City Flats but this trip we thought we'd give another hotel a try. Having stayed in one of the budget hotels in the area before we were not keen on repeating that mistake so we thought we'd give the Haworth a try; who would have known how great this little hotel could be?
The Haworth is on Hope College's campus and its a small little hotel, 50 rooms. The staff is amazingly friendly and welcoming when checking in and very genuine. The lobby is open and airy, they had a couple of tables outside at the entrance that gave a very nice view of the surrounding garden areas on campus. Stepping off the elevator you are a little surprised to see names affixed to each guest room, these represent donors that have made the Inn possible. With the door opened I was very impressed with the room, tastefully decorated, the carpet comfortable, seating that called to be sat in and beds and furniture that were a cut above the usual hotel fare. The room was extremely quiet and comfortable, everything about it was great. Admittedly this is a contrast to the sleek modern of the City Flats, the Haworth celebrates traditional comfort and I must say it succeeds.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent, the usual continental choices including fresh fruit, self made waffles but the real treat were the mini sausages wrapped in pastry, say what you may until you taste one! Breakfast was excellent and a great way to start the morning. Overall I'd call this a hidden gem that we are very glad to have found. Who would have known? Now you do too. We'll be staying there again soon.
On a side note, Hope is a conservative liberal arts college so if you are expecting Big Ten foolery look elsewhere, this is a very quiet campus.
