Rated 4 out of 5 by Virginiatravelers Our winter snow trip
Nice historic hotel with a great staff and food. The "little guests" above us caused a little lost sleep.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GRZECHOTNIK Dissapointment
Being there before and impressed with facilities especially room size and quality of furniture, staff friendliness etc, we were expecting at least as good or even better for our winter ski vacations. Price you were asking for 1 night is ridiculous (!) ,multiplying x 3 makes is
unforeseeable even for family with higher
income like ours, when nothing is really extra.
Floor in the room is on the slope (!),so I cannot imagine how difficult must be for elderly folks hiking to the bed:( not mention to walk in fear as floor is creaky,you can easily fell; you hear every step outside of your room . Doors were with huge gap due to that fact as it was not possible to align... (!) we were on the top floor and we enjoy the view of Wet cracks on the wall :(?
Plumbing in the bathtub terrible:(,water takes forever to disappear, because of crocked floor night table was hazard to use... The list can go longer ... Manager was very helpful and tried to overcome our bad experience but what he can change for couple nights?. Since we were during winter season we need warmth, but
air conditioner was loud and worked on his own schedule on & off :(
Stuff was friendly but not efficient in this chaotic weekend..

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuckySteve Equinox and their staff are great, problems lie with how guests are treated by outside companies
The Equinox staff were perfect.
We were upgraded to the Orvis suites on our tenth wedding anniversary and this was really appreciated!
The grounds are beautiful and our stay was very enjoyable.
This is a wonderful historic New England town resort with tons to offer in the area including world class food.
That said, there were two issues that caused us unpleasant moments from folks who do not work for the hotel but who rent the hotel facilities.
Unfortunately my familiy and the family that vacationed with us were asked to vacate the Equinox pond, stop swimming, move our cars and get out. This resulted in us moving our cars and having a 3, 4, 9, and 10 year old walk a half mile so the fly casting group could be accomodated.
Also, our wives and children were told to leave the hotel pool by the aquatic instructor because "these ladies have paid a lot of money to take this class."
In both cases the Equinox guest (we have been a dozen times) were made to feel like third class citizens at the resort to make way for people not even staying at the hotel.
You have guests paying hundreds of dollars a day to visit the Equinox resort being told to scram to accommodate folks who I would venture to say contribute quite a bit less to the hotel's bottom line in comparison...

Rated 5 out of 5 by KevinMD Fantastic Staff - great resort
We spent 5 nights this August at the resort. From the greeting from Ryan at the door and Hope at the front desk, we were treated liked valued guests. It was our anniversary weekend and the front desk staff and concierge staff (we love Mimi) made us feel like every day was the anniversary.
The resort is gorgeous and unpretentious. The room was well appointed and roomy. We were called by the staff who arranged an upgrade to a king room on our second night.
The restaurant staff were all pleasant and helpful. Robyn and Amber remembered us and always tried to sit us near a window or a quiet area. The food was terrific and the breakfast buffet wanted for nothing. (really wonderful salmon included in the continental breakfast)
The chef prepared a special cake for our anniversary, which was unexpected. Tom, in the Chop House, was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. Made our evening special.
The views off the terrace are serene with a magnificent view of Mt Equinox right there. Tracey and Frank handled large and small crowds of the terrace and bar with the same excellent service with a smile.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. The good news is the hotel shuttle is available for local trips to town and near by restaurants. The golf course on premise is excellent,well cared for, and challenging. (of course I find many courses challenging)
We plan on returning in the future and count this as one of Starwood's hidden gems - due in large part to a terrific staff.
