This is a beautiful old grand hotel and it's been kept up very well! We had an amazing view of Mt. Washington, the golf course and the back lawn from our room. The room was modern and clean, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on, with down comforter and pillows. The A/C worked well, although it was a little noisy. I agree with reviews that say the bathroom is strangely laid out, with the toilet jammed between the bathtub and the wall, but it's really not a problem. The outdoor pool was nice to sit around, but I'd recommend the warmer indoor pool for swimming. Yes, it's pricey, but you know that going in. If you're looking for a bargain hotel, this is not for you. Instead, come and enjoy the luxury (and the price) and have a great weekend in the mountains!
We ate at Stickneys, which was really delicious and a nicer restaurant than I anticipated. If the weather allows, you can eat outside on the porch. We didn't try the fancy restaurant upstairs. The $20 buffet breakfast is amazing, and SO WORTH the money! There was an omelette station, tons of fresh fruit, all the regular breakfast dishes, freshly baked bread, etc... it's the best deal at the resort! We also ate one dinner at Fabyan's Station down the road. We took the hotel shuttle there and back - it was really easy to use, and we only had to wait 5 minutes for the return trip. I recommend taking the shuttle as much as possible. Fabyans had good food, but there were a ton of little kids running around, so if you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner, stay at the hotel.
All the employees at the resort were wonderful and so nice! We were celebrating an anniversary, and they brought us a dessert on the house, on a plate with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate! It was so thoughtful and a real nice touch at a nice hotel. I feel like good service is increasingly hard to find, and everyone at the Mt. Washington resort was just so nice and thoughtful, they really made the weekend.
We also did the 3-hour Canopy Tour at the ski mountain, and it was awesome! A really different experience. You feel completely safe, and the tour guides are so knowledgeable and well-trained, you're always in good hands, although you do go quite high up in the trees! Highly recommended! I think it would be particularly nice in the fall when the leaves are changing color.
In all, I thought this hotel was gorgeous and reminiscent of a bygone era (in all good ways). Our weekend was spent relaxing in luxury, and even with a full hotel, we felt like special guests. We plan to go back to ski in the winter, and look forward to a return trip!
