Located in nearby New Castle, NH, this restored 19th Century grand hotel is one of the nicest places I've stayed anywhere. The guest rooms are stunning as are all of its public spaces. The building is right on the water, allowing for great views from just about any room. The bar and restaurant serve wonderful food. I especially love the breakfasts.
The hotel has a very nice spa where guests can get all types of treatments. Swimming pools are available both indoors and outdoors. The hotel also has a nice gym.
I don't have a photo right now, so be sure to check out the Web site so you can get a look at it!
I have a lot of frequent stay hotel points with Marriott Hotels, so, if I am staying over night I stay at the Courtyard by Marriott. If you are looking for a stay that is less, well, corporate…check out some of the bed & breakfast houses or local inns in downtown Portsmouth...
It's about a mile from historic downtown Portsmouth which is actually not too convenient if you want to walk everywhere and be close to your hotel. But if you don't mind driving the mile to town, the Courtyard by Marriott is not a bad choice. By the way, Portsmouth is not an overly crowded place, so parking spaces on readily available and parking garages are cheap compared to other places in New England.
