Hotel of the week...

Mount Washington Resort
Bretton Woods, N.H.

This history-laden hotel in the White Mountains was thrust into the limelight in 1944, said Ed Holland in the Financial Times. As World War II drew to a close, Mount Washington Resort hosted a meeting of financial delegates from 44 Allied nations—including British economist John Maynard Keynes—who established the World Bank. Built in 1902, the Spanish Renaissance structure was “one of the most opulent hotels of its day.” Today the hotel has an air of “a slower, less fussy” time. Courteous attendants manually operate elevators, enormous chandeliers hang from the ceilings, and radiator pipes clang. Contact: Mountwashington.com
