Hotel Vermont, a 125-bedroom luxury hotel, is set to open Spring of 2013. The property expects to gain LEED-certification, and will draw guests searching for an authentic Vermont experience, including a Hen of the Wood Restaurant, one of the state’s favorite restaurant chains.
An outdoor terrace with an open hearth, features views of Lake Champlain. The hotel will also have 2,000 square feet of green roof space, along with a 7,500 square foot Harbor Terrace that features local artist Richard Erdman's bronze sculptures. The hotel will offer four meeting rooms, two of which are water-view function rooms with 1,100 square feet of space for meetings and events for up to 80 guests. Hotel Vermont will also be the first hotel in the state to offer 100Mbs synchronous broadband internet access - the fastest of its kind - through a partnership with Burlington Telecom. Experienced hotelier Hans van Wees is the General Manager of Hotel Vermont says, "this project is a first for Burlington. We are bringing an independent, luxury boutique hotel to the city so travelers can enjoy our destination and locals can use this as a meeting place, especially with our Hen of the Wood location.”
