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.”

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather. 

 

The corporate world spends an estimated $242 billion on gifts for employees and customers, according to Forbes. Wouldn’t it be rewarding if the purchasing and giving of these types of gifts offered meaningful work for veterans, women, and their children?
