The Hotel Concord, NH's Boutique Hotel, Featured In The Union LeaderThe first upscale boutique hotel in the state capital has a revitalized downtown and cultural hub at its doorstep
Concord, New Hampshire is undergoing a cultural renaissance, and The Hotel Concord gives visitors a front-row seat to all that the city has to offer. The red brick sidewalks and crosswalks of Concord's improved streetscape literally lead to the hotel door. Inside The Hotel Concord, a newly completed 38-room independent hotel, brings the high-end hotel experience to the heart of historic downtown Concord. The boutique hotel is housed on the fourth and sixth floors of Capital Commons and features floor-to-ceiling windows, some of which include balconies and unique views of the NH State House and redesigned Main Street.
No two rooms inside the boutique hotel are the same, either in shape, size, or decorations. Each room offers a distinctive luxury experience. High-tech amenities include state-of-the-art climate control systems, flat screen televisions, high-speed Wi-Fi and Amazon Echo Dots for convenient hands-free access. The soundproof rooms have many upscale features such as luxury bed linens and bathrobes, local décor, California-style closets, mini fridges, and well-stocked oversized bathrooms.
The top floor rooms were recently completed and were available to guests as of January, following the hotel’s official opening of the lobby and fourth floor rooms last August. The lobby is designed to welcome guests to gather and relax. It includes a lounge, a fireplace, and The Lobbyist. Each morning, a light breakfast is served. Guests do not need to leave the building to have all of their needs met. Other amenities in the building include executive lounges of each guestroom floor, The Hotel Concord Event Center, The Gym, O Steaks & Seafood, and a 24-hour concierge service.
“This is not your ‘cookie-cutter’ style hotel where one room is indistinguishable from another,” said Michael Simchik, owner of Capital Commons. “As we were designing the hotel, we to create a unique space that reflects the character and charm of the city.”
Concord is a vibrant city just an hour north of Boston. It has a rich political and cultural history. The recent streetscape improvements of Main Street made downtown more walkable for visitors. Amenities include many boutiques, shops, restaurants, and cafes. Capital Commons, where the boutique hotel is located, was one of the first redevelopments in Concord. Red River Theatres, a three-screen arthouse cinema featuring award-winning documentaries, independent films, an art gallery, and private events, is located in the building. The building also houses O Steaks & Seafood, an upscale eatery with a big wine list that is houses in an industrial-chic chophouse & bar.
As the State capital, Concord is the hub for first-in-the-nation Presidential Primary politics. For political buffs, the boutique hotel is within walking distance of the NH Historical Society Museum features political memorabilia from NH's first-in-the-nation primary. Visitors are also always welcome in the State House, where a lobby of historical flags welcomes people.
The State capital has also become a destination for the arts. The Capitol Center for the Arts on Main Street offers a wide variety of national and regional acts, the City Auditorium features local productions, and the Hatbox Theatre offers a unique and intimate theater setting with improv, magic, and original plays. The League of NH Craftsmen, headquarters on Main Street, appeals those with artistic leanings and hosts a permanent gallery and four themed exhibitions a year featuring the best artists in NH. The Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden showcases original art and contemporary crafts created by regional and national artists, and the Kimball Jenkins School of Art hosts contemporary exhibitions of regional artists. Walking along Main Street, visitors will also find high-quality local arts and crafts, including sculpture, jewelry and glasswork at the many locally-owned boutiques and shops.
