The only property on the Dartmouth College campus
Average rooms
Located in the small town of Hanover, New Hampshire (about 125 miles northwest of Boston and 150 miles west of Portland, Maine), this historical boutique hotel – which is the longest continually operating inn in the state – gives guests prime access to Dartmouth College. But if you tire of exploring the campus or downtown Hanover's specialty shops and are looking for more activities outdoors, you can rent a canoe or kayak at the nearby Ledyard Canoe Club or hike part of the Appalachian Trail. Once you're ready to head back to the inn, relax by the lobby's fireplace or grab a bite at PINE restaurant, which specializes in American farm-to-table cuisine. According to previous visitors, the buffalo cauliflower and ahi tuna appetizers and the Hanover burger and diver scallops entrees are exceptionally tasty. After you satiate your appetite, enjoy a little rest and relaxation in your contemporary New England-style digs, which feature wooden furniture, marble bathroom counters and a neutral color palette with pops of gold and dark green. Each guest room also includes modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV, bathrobes and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. What's more, members of the iPrefer rewards program can use or earn points by bedding down here.

If you're in town for a Dartmouth event, you'll want to stay on the college's—and the town's—main square. This sprawling Georgian-style brick structure rises five white-trimmed stories. The original building was converted into a tavern in 1780, and this expertly run inn, now greatly enlarged, has been operating ever since.

Lonely Planet


Each colonial-style room at The Hanover Inn is furnished with dark hardwood furniture. They are equipped with cable TV and a work desk. Room service is available.

The New York Times


Stepping into the Hanover Inn in Hanover, N.H., is like entering a Dartmouth-themed time capsule. The inn is directly across Wheelock Street from Dartmouth College's main lawn and its guest room floors are covered in 'Dartmouth green' carpeting. An 1853 front page from The Dartmouth Advertiser and The Literary Gazette hangs behind the registration desk, and a plaque proudly salutes the class of 1945.
