The family-owned Mt. Washington Summit Road Company has announced that the Portland-based Olympia Hotel Management will operate The Glen House.

The new three-story, 68-room hotel will be located in Pinkham Notch by the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road; it’s slated to open in May 2018.

Olympia Hotel Management has “the background, experience and depth within their organization that we needed to successfully market and operate the next Glen House,” says Howie Wemyss, general manager, Mt. Washington Auto Road. “They have the involvement with independent hotels and the on-the-ground practical experience of running hotels that we were seeking in a management partner.”

The hotel will have a pool and restaurant, and half of the rooms will offer balconies facing Mt. Washington. The design of the property will have a New England feel, with guest rooms that will feature a Shaker design and public spaces that celebrate the area’s history.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with The Glen House,” says Sara Masterson of Olympia Hotel Management. “They represent the kind of distinctive, independent hotel property that we’ve worked with so successfully across the country.”

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
