If you’re heading to Hampshire County, Massachusetts and are looking for Northampton accommodation, we recommend staying at The Hotel Northampton. This boutique hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Northampton and offers its guests impeccable service and outstanding amenities.
Whether you’re in the area to shop, dine, or visit a loved one attending a nearby college, The Hotel Northampton is one of the best hotels in Hampshire County. Built in 1927, the hotel is a member of Historic Hotels of America and has hosted presidents, celebrities, and dignitaries.
As soon as we arrived, we were treated like royalty as well. We were greeted with smiles and offered assistance with our bags. Check-in went smoothly and we were told how to get to our suite. The warmth of everyone we talked to made us quickly forget how cold it was outside.
The Hotel Northampton has 106 guestrooms and luxury suites. They are all beautifully decorated and elegant. We were on this trip through Hampshire County with our friend and fellow blogger Brianne of A Traveling Life. We shared the Residential Suite of the Residential Cottage which is behind the main hotel.
Inside were two queen beds, a living room (with a gas fireplace!), and a small kitchen that included a full-size refrigerator and basic dishware. Inside the bathroom we found terry robes and toiletries by Gilchrist and Soames.
The Hotel Northampton offers its guests many great amenities. There is complimentary WiFi and free parking (the parking lot is behind the hotel). For your convenience, there is also a 24-hour business center and a Fitness Center that’s open from 6am to 11pm. Additionally, guests can also enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast.
The hotel has not one, but two award-winning restaurants: Coolidge Park Cafe and Wiggins Tavern. Coolidge Park Cafe is where the continental breakfast is served but they are also open for lunch and dinner. Wiggins Tavern is well known in Northampton and their Sunday Brunch Buffet was voted Best in the Valley by Valley Advocate readers. We didn’t get to dine at Wiggins Tavern during our stay, but the menu looks incredible and we definitely wouldn’t mind trying their legendary Baked Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp.
If you’re looking for where to stay in Northampton, you really can’t find a better place than The Hotel Northampton. It’s in the middle of downtown, with shops, galleries, and restaurants all within a short walking distance. It’s also close to the highway, so if you’re coming from Boston it’s only a couple of hours away.
Also, the hotel is in what is called the Five College Community. That means that if you’re looking for hotels near Mount Holyoke College, Amherst, Hampshire, Smith Colleges, or the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, The Hotel Northampton’s location is perfect.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Hotel Northampton. Not only was the service impeccable, but it’s location made it easy to explore the town’s attractions. It really is the best in Northampton accommodation and we definitely recommend staying there.
