“We will return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

May 2011
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Coolidge. It has New England charm, including the squeeky floors. We had a junior suite which was small, but we did not spend a lot of time in the rooms. The only suggestion is to have an air conditioning unit in both rooms. If the bathroom doors were closed the other room was warm. The rooms and bathroom were very clean. The turning shower head was different we all liked it. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family and will we will return someday. Thanks for everything. Ellen from Hampton, VA

Room Tip: Rooms with king size beds were larger rooms.

The Hotel Coolidge is a bit of history and for that reason it was interesting to stay there. It was old, but clean and comfortable.. I liked that you could open the screened windows and get a breeze . The bed was good. We got a junior suite, so we had a little room with 2 chairs and a tv, which is probably a must because the bedrooms are small. It is no frills--in fact there is not even a soap dish in the shower, so your soap goes on the ledge by your feet in the walk in shower. There is a cash only hole in the wall diner around the corner and a good coffee place down the block. You can hear the trains from time to time going by this old railroad hotel. The people at the front desk are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: go for the suite.

I was in town for business and stayed at the Coolidge because of it's location (it's the only hotel right in the downtown area). It is also easy walking distance to two great restauronts. I loved the extra touches to this historic hotel; the crackling wood-fireplace in the lobby (wonderful to sit by after a long day), the kind staff (with helpful suggestions for local food and things-to-do), the flowers in the hallway, and the period furniture throughout the building. It is a true historic building...there's not a single 90 degree angle to be found in the place, I think. It has countless nooks and crannies, and a back wing that is used an an Elder Hostel. So much nicer than the sterile cookie-cutter chain hotels! And wonderfully quiet at night.

The Hotel Coolidge is not a glossy new plastic hotel. It is the major renovation underway in a a Vermont Railroad town in the midst of an artistic revival. Renovating the Coolidge is an ambitious battle. We had a lovely suite that included a queen bed, sitting room and well renovated bathroom. I cannot imagine that all three floors and 3 wings have been upgraded to date. Nor is it likely that there will be 300 guests in this former boom town. We appreciated the proximity to a variety of restaurants, historical buildings, and Tupelo Music Hall. If you go to WRJ for music, The Coolidge has a special price for you!

I first toured the Hotel Coolidge a number of years ago, and was struck by its character--like an early 1900s railroad hotel transported to the 2000s. I stayed there recently for the first time, and the hotel is still charming and lovely...just about every room is different, the hallways have couches and other real furniture, and the front desk staff is genuinely kind. The radiators knock and the floors creak in places, but I see that as proof of authenticity and kind of like it. The surrounding downtown has surprisingly good restaurants open after dark these days (rare in small mountain towns), like the Tip Top Cafe for some mid-priced fine dining, and Elixir, in a converted freight house along the railroad tracks; the latter is simply shocking, in good ways--it is fine dining NY restaurant style for $25/person in the Green Mountains. Who knew?

The hotel is at the center of a revitalizing downtown, so don't expect a cultural hot spot in full swing just yet. It sits just across the tracks from the Amtrak stop. It's a lot cozier and more memorable than a cookie-cutter chain hotel, and easier to get to from the trains or after a night at the theater downtown. Hard to ask for more!

For seeing live music at Tupelo you can't beat the location. Easy to get to off highway. Enjoyed the small downtown and the locals. Everyone was very nice. Including hotel staff.

First, we a couple of hotel snobs, so this is ment for those folks out here that care above a clean room and just a place to sleep. I think the prices are somewhat high for what the offer. That said its a great location within steps of lots of food and drink options, all I should say were pretty good.

This is an old hotel, in need of repair, but its kind of interesting as well. This is a place closer to super 8 then to Hampton inn.

very nice staff.
