A grand masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, The Mount Washington Hotel was a two-year labor of love for 250 master craftsmen. Conceived by industrialist Joseph Stickney, this National Historic Landmark opened in 1902 and immediately became a favorite summer haunt for poets, presidents and princes. Ever Gracious, Ever Grand throughout its history, the Hotel has been renowned for natural beauty and luxurious extras. Indoor pools, a health spa, Jacuzzi and fireplaces are just a few of the indoor amenities comforting year round guests. The interior decor of the rooms and halls reflect the elegance and sophistication of those who visit and manage the Hotel.
