What began in 1849 as Junction House, a railroad hotel providing overnight stays for travelers including President Calvin Coolidge and movie star Lillian Gish, the Hotel Coolidge has carried its 1920s flavor into the 21st century with dignity. It brings you yesterday's ambiance with today's amenities - including wireless DSL - and a timeless sense of personalized, caring service - all in a comfortable atmosphere to ease your vacation or business trip.
The Hotel Coolidge is located in White River Junction, VT, a 19th-century village in the Connecticut River Valley, five miles south of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, and one mile from I-89 and I-91. The hotel offers 30 country inn-style guestrooms, each with private bath. You can stretch out and relax. For gatherings, such as meetings, receptions, banquets and special events, there are function rooms which seat up to 200 people, and full wedding services are available (see overview). A café and a gift shop are also on the premises.
