Mount Washington Inn has a fine and proud reputation but the lack of upkeep, maintenance and the absence of genuine trained congenial hospitality [Natalia in Stickney's restaurant is a very poor ambassador for the hotel and our waiter wasn't much better - his mask was totally resting on his chin and he had no concept of Covid-restrictions as he… Read more
Mount Washington Inn has a fine and proud reputation but the lack of upkeep, maintenance and the absence of genuine trained congenial hospitality [Natalia in Stickney's restaurant is a very poor ambassador for the hotel and our waiter wasn't much better - his mask was totally resting on his chin and he had no concept of Covid-restrictions as he delivered our food, gloveless and touching everything like coffee lids and cutlery) makes it a real "miss." The difference between our experience at a resort about 12 miles down the road and our experience at MWI the same weekend was palpable and MWI cost considerably more! The lobby is all roped off, clearly for Covid-restrictions but there was no place for our 82 year old mother to comfortably sit in the lobby while waiting for bellman services etc.. The Adirondack chairs were not wiped down in between days [we know because the coffee spill from the day before was still there the next day] and the indoor pool [virtually the only amenity available to us when we stayed in early July; the outdoor pool is part of a huge construction/expansion project and is shuttered] looked so un-hygienic that we bolted. The lawn was overgrown and full of weeds and the dining area looked over construction storage and moldy storage areas. I was shocked at the rate we paid for the room when I learned there were virtually no amenities. The food was also tasteless. I think Omni Hotels is resting in the historic laurels of the IMF documents signed there in 1944 and they are doing a major injustice to the history of the hotel by not keeping the building up to date and looking majestic, especially before taking on a major expansion project. I highly suggest a boycott until they do better room and lobby/common area maintenance, staff training, Covid-cleaning and preparations and beautification. Not to mention improving the food and menu. Dullsville. Read less

My husband and I recently returned from a long weekend holiday weekend stay at the Omni for a getaway to the mountains. We were dying to get away after months of quarantine, and it seemed a good option. Just a few weeks after reopening with some COVID-19 restrictions still in place, we overall felt safe and appreciated that staff and guests a like were wearing masks in public areas. Though some of the onsite amenities had yet to open again, the grounds were lovely and the hotel was secluded but conveniently located to area hiking, Mt. Washington and neighboring towns. The two key faults I found with the property: 1. Rooms need updating. Though I understand it's an older, historic property, the room felt tired and dated. I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay the full price I see the room "typically" goes for. There is also absolutely zero soundproofing and with lots of families with young kids around us, that wasn't the best for relaxation. 2. Dining was just OK. We had really high expectations for our dinner at Stickley's and it wasn't too impressive, which was too bad given the price tag. Breakfasts were better, but again for two people came in at over $50 with tip. However, the outdoor seating with views of the mountains are hard to beat and the staff did a great job providing good service despite the current dining restrictions. If given the option, I probably would've rated this a 3.5 star place, but gave it the 4 for the excellent execution of cleanliness and service in this uncertain time. If you are looking for a mountain getaway and appreciate paying for the old world charm feel, you will love this place! Read less

We decided to try to take a short trip to see whether we could make it work at the height of coronavirus. With overpriced, mediocre rooms one would hope the resort experience would make up some of the slack. We all expect some hiccups as businesses adjust to COVID but these guys aren’t ready yet. First off, we were promised connecting rooms which we did not receive. The rooms themselves, supposedly “renovated” but really just a newish cost of paint and rugs over an ancient build, were loud, waterstained, and reeked of mildew. Unacceptable for a room costing almost a grand per night. Most of the staff were doing their level best to make the stay work for guests, with some notable exceptions, but the place was just not ready for prime time. For example, many amenities were not available, including Outdoor pool, concierge, ice machines (or maybe they were broken), valet, and room service, which was particularly egregious . When we made the reservation we were told in room dining was available - joke was on us, turned out that meant we could order from the 1 open restaurant (operating at reduced hours and menu) in the hotel and and bring it back up to our room. We also made a reservation to dine in at the restaurant, delighted that we were able to pre-select outside seating since indoor dining is still iffy. Joke was on us again - they filled the outdoor patio before we got there so we were sent packing since we were uncomfortable eating inside. Read less

What a fantastic stay at this hotel. We checked in just a day after they opened back up due to the COVID closing. Our stay couldn't have gone much better.

What a fantastic stay at this hotel. We checked in just a day after they opened back up due to the COVID closing. Our stay couldn't have gone much better. The manager, Monica was especially nice and welcoming. She upgraded our room when I mentioned that my wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The room had a ton of space and provided a unique experience. It felt like we were back in the early 1900s. We found a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us (nice touch) which we promptly took care of. I booked a package with dinner and breakfast and I'm glad I did. We had an excellent dinner outside on the terrace overlooking Mount Washington. Tough to beat that setting and their 10oz filet mignon was the highlight. We enjoyed some wine by one of the firepits after dinner. After a nice breakfast at the hotel we hiked Mount Washington on a nearly perfect weather day. We had great views, suffered no injuries, and were completely exhausted when we arrived back at the car. This visit was a perfect 10. Thanks Mount Washington Hotel! We will certainly be back.

A shining gem in the NH White Mountains. We had a pleasurable stay at Bretton Woods, birth place of the post WWII international monetary system. The staff was fantastic. Food was great. A bit pricey, but not extreme. Overall, a wonderful stay at a wonderful, old hotel.
