“Best place to stay in Hanover!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The Hanover Inn is the best place to stay in Hanover, especially if you are visiting Dartmouth. It is right across the street from the college. There is outdoor dining that looks out on the college green. You really are right in the midst of everything. The Inn was very stylish, upscale but warm and friendly. I felt the room rate was a great value for the quality of the Inn. Our room was lovely. We traveled with 3 teens. We had a great 2 Queen bed room with an attached room with a sleeper sofa and 1 1/2 baths. Perfect for our group. Overall, it was really wonderful and we would highly recommend the Hanover Inn to anyone traveling to Hanover.

The Hanover inn is well-located with shops and restaurants in short walking distance. The decor is clean and in a transitional style with accents from local producers like Simon Pearce. The bed was fantastically comfortable and our bathroom was immaculate and new.

The hotel is located at an intersection so if you're a light sleeper, best to ask for a room in the back or away from the intersection. Our room was on the corner of the hotel facing the intersection and we actually enjoyed that view and weren't bothered by noise but others might be.

We booked on Tingo and got a great deal which made the experience all the better.

We came to Hanover for the weekend to visit our Dartmouth student. The hotel is perfectly located and is definitely part of the whole Dartmouth & Hanover ambience. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is old (bathrooms are small) but its been nicely updated. The beds are comfortable. The wifi is free! The Pine Restaurant is very nice. There is also outdoor seating for lunch, overlooking the Green, which is a wonderful experience on a nice sunny day. The main street of Hanover with all its shops and restaurants was visible from our room. And best of all my son loves being at Dartmouth!

The food is good but pricy.
They need more personnel but in fairness to them the students left for school the week we went there.
Terrace is great in the center of town.
Hey everything is the center of town. haha

Hard to believe it took 35 years after my Dartmouth graduation to stay at this iconic hotel. Perhaps it was precisely its iconic stature that made me think it would be too expensive or too stuffy. It was neither! It was a tremendous value, and the staff could not have been more accommodating--beginning with the doorman who offered to valet our car but then volunteered that this was the one night (Saturday) when we could park on the street overnight--true hospitality and a welcome change from big city gouging at hotels of comparable excellence. The room was spacious and serene, the decor a muted Shaker aesthetic. We had a moment's pause when we saw we were next to the elevator and overlooking Hanover's Main Street, but the place must be built the old-fashioned way, because we heard NO ambient noise from either and slept incredibly well on excellent mattress, pillows,and sheets. The restaurant PINE is superb and also an excellent value.

We stayed two nights at the Hanover Inn for a wedding that was taking place there on a Saturday in August. The Inn is situated in a perfect spot, just across from the Dartmouth College campus--which is beautiful and picturesque--and right on the edge of the town of Hanover, where there are plenty of local shops, restaurants, etc.

When we arrived at the Inn, we were a bit put out to find that valet parking is required; personally we would have preferred to park our own car. Furthermore, if you are using hotel parking, there is a $20 per night fee, which seemed rather excessive given the already-expensive costs we were paying to stay in the hotel itself. Otherwise, the checkin process (at about 5:30 p.m. on a Friday evening) went quickly and smoothly.

Our 4th floor room (410) had a lovely view of the Dartmouth campus. It was spacious, with pub-style seating running across one wall and a table in the corner (no desk or vanity). The bathroom was also very attractive, with a large, tiled walk-in shower. On the other hand, the bath definitely lacked in counter space, even for just two people (quite a bit of space was taken up by a large stand mirror which we did not need). Furthermore, the bathroom lighting was EXTREMELY poor--there was no way I could see properly to apply makeup in that environment. I will say that the complementary products were quite nice, particularly the hair conditioner and moisturizer.

We did not eat at the restaurant, Pine, although we visited the Pine bar on Friday night. Our experience with the bartenders there was pretty awful. First, my husband wanted a pina colada, but one bartender didn't know if they "had all the ingredients" for that. Second, I tried to order a Malibu and pineapple, but one of the bartenders had no idea what Malibu was--the other had to explain that it was a type of rum! We finally settled on having Baccardi and pineapple, but they had no pineapple juice at the bar, so they had to go fetch some specially from the kitchen. All of this, and the bar menu specifically states that the staff is happy to go out of their way to make whatever type of drink you might desire!

So, overall we had a nice stay, but there are some things about this hotel that could definitely use a bit of work, especially with the high cost.

We stayed at the Hanover Inn while attending a family wedding and were very pleased with our room. The bed was comfortable and the sheets, pillows and duvet good quality. All hotel staff were courteous and the valet staff was efficient and always offered help with directions. We had breakfast one morning and the food was well prepared and beautifully presented. We would love to return and stay again, given the opportunity.
