Topnotch was dreadful. You should definitely avoid this hotel. I decided to stay there b/c of its proximity to Stowe skiing and the pet friendly policy; I was very disappointed.
When I checked in they showed me to a room that smelled disgusting - it was a mix of cigarettes and cheap air freshener. I asked for another room - they showed me to one with ratty decor and a different bad smell. I asked for yet another room - I got an acceptable (not nice) room on the 3rd try.
Throughout my stay things kept breaking in the room - the heat wasn't functioning at one point, the hairdryer was broken, the bedside table lamp didn't work, even the pens on the nightstands were out of ink. The staff did not respond to multiple requests to fix the above items.
The walls in this hotel are paper thin and there were children that sounded like stampeding elephants running up and down the halls at all hours.
Room service messed up my hamburger(!?), the front desk was often left unattended for long periods of time, and the hotel's decor looked tired and drab.
I have no idea why anyone would give this hotel a positive review. I definitely would not stay here again.
