Only came to stay for a night (Saturday-Sunday) with a few friends. Our main goal was to relax and take advantage of the spa. Upon arrival the guy at the front desk was great. We found our room pretty quickly, got changed and headed to the pool/spa building. The facility was beautiful and we used the steam room and sauna....

Front Desk, valet, concierge, bell captains, maître 'ds...they made our stay memorable and fun. We ate at all 3 restaurants and were amazed at not only how good, but also how consistent was the quality of the food across all meals. For a "Luxury Collection" hotel, we came with certain expectations, so were a bit disappointed to find no minibar...

This is our second year in a row staying at the Equinox over the kids' December break. We spent three nights and had a great time. The resort has three restaurant choices & the food was good. My husband and son particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The hotel is close to shopping in Manchester & the kids skied at nearby...

My wife and I stayed for a short week over the summer of 2013. There were a lot of activities to keep us busy and the restaurant was very good. The drive from NYC was not bad and we will certainly return again. For this trip we were able to participate in the Falconry, the Land Rover driving school as...

This is our first time to the Equinox on a break between Xmas and New Years. Very quaint and true New England feel. If you love old hotels like we do you will enjoy your stay. The rooms are comfortable but don't expect the opulence of other Luxury Collection hotels. Halls can be drafty and a bit run down but...

Four generations of my family has made The Equinox our yearly destination for our Christmas vacation. We are used to THE BEST. However there was a major breakdown this year. No heat? The hotel felt like a drafty old barn. We sat shivering through our Christmas dinner at the Colonnade and found the service pretty darn bad. The wrong wine...

I wrote a glowing review of this property a year ago, when we stayed for two days a week before Christmas. This year we returned, and stayed for three days.

We have been coming here for years due to the great accommodations, but had always avoided the restaurants. So last month during our stay we ate in and loved it. The food was creative, fresh and met our family's numerous needs. The prices were lower than we expected and the desserts were amazing. A favorite resort that cooks!
