BRETTON WOODS, N.H. (October 13, 2010) – The Omni Mount Washington
Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, is pleased to announce the latest
phase of enhancements, part of a comprehensive, $60 million expansion and
renovation to the award-winning resort. Located at the base of Mount
Washington, the multi-phased, property-wide effort began in 2006.
The improvements began in the fall of 2009 and include the redesign of
several culinary venues, the renovation of guest rooms and suites, the
creation of a new Family Suite and more - all with an eye on maintaining
the historic nature of the property while embracing modern amenities.
The latest chapter joins other recently completed work, including a
new 25,000 square-foot spa; a large, refurbished wraparound veranda; renovation
of the main dining room; a new 20,000 square-foot conference center; the
restored Donald Ross-designed Mount Washington golf course; and the new
Bretton Woods Canopy Tour - quickly becoming a “must” for travelers in
Guest Rooms and Suites
The latest phase showcases the completion of all guest rooms and suites
throughout the hotel. Corridors are spruced up with wallpaper inspired
by the pattern of the property’s Tiffany stained glass, lighting fixtures
based on an original Thomas Edison design and flooring with images of the
local flora and fauna of New Hampshire. A highlight of the corridors
is on the fourth floor, which features a restored original Tiffany stained
glass skylight dating from 1902. Accommodations have been designed
with a residential feel by Beaty and Brown of Richmond, VA. The color
scheme was created to showcase the natural beauty outside, with crisp,
light colors of spring wildflowers found along the trails of Mount Washington.
Guests can also enjoy the region’s beauty through photography by artist
Ansel Olson, which capture flowers found along the hiking trails, and a
reproduction of a map held by the New Hampshire Historical Society.
Restaurants & Bars
The second phase included updating several of the casual food and beverage
Originally a Prohibition Era speakeasy, The Cave is an American tavern
with warm palettes, distressed wood and a classic English-style designed
to create a comfortable yet rustic ambiance. In a nod to the past,
the entrance maintains a feeling of exclusivity – as if it is still the
place to enjoy a cocktail away from disapproving eyes.
Reconcepted as a pub-style steakhouse with an appreciation for local fare,
Stickney’s embraces the American sportsman, with traditional patterns and
classic materials creating an atmosphere perfect for “farm-to-table” dining.
Elements include lithographs of fish from the local Ammonoosuc River, casts
of paw prints and fishing paraphernalia.
Located in a former train station, Fabyan’s Station is a family dining
venue inspired by railway history with vintage railroad art and flooring
which resembles train tracks.
Other additions include the Family Suite, a three-bedroom suite spanning
1,400 square feet and featuring a living room with a fireplace and two
separate children’s rooms. Wall coverings with images of butterflies
and a “map room” with an atlas creates an air of discovery and adventure.
To further enjoy the great outdoors, the resort also added a life-sized
chess set featuring two feet high pieces.
