This grande dame might be getting up there in years (it opened in 1769), but recent renovations—including a great room that finally gives this historic hotel its due—keep things current. Today, skiers set up base camp here for trips to Stratton and Bromley, 17 and seven miles away, respectively. To bring modernity into the mix, designer Geoffrey Bradfield used lighting, fabric and artistic influences in guestrooms and public spaces. Other upgrades include a new restaurant (The Chop House), a deck with a fire pit, and the Falcon Bar, specializing in high-end scotches, wines and Vermont cheeses and chocolates. Unchanged are the amenities, including five restaurants and a 13,000-square-foot spa—and a setting in the Green Mountains that never loses its charm. $149–$529; equinoxresort.com
