Berkshires hotel’s history combines nicely with its chic, modern vibe
Echoing the all-encompassing character of the Berkshires, the chic Hotel on North celebrates both its 19th century past (it was a famous haberdashery) and its vibrant, modern spirit. The boutique hotel’s 45 rooms are individually designed, with hand-crafted pieces, original art and modern amenities like super-fast wi-fi. Some have wet bars, gas fireplaces and kitchenettes, and the Library Suite has 125 book-and memorabilia-filled bookshelves and a rolling library ladder! Play a board game in the lounge, use a day pass to visit the fitness center next door, book an in-room massage or explore the bountiful Berkshires’ museums, gardens, ski areas, parks, shopping and arts venues.

Retro and modern touches at this brilliant boutique inn make a stay here relaxing, memorable
Every room and suite in the Porches Inn reflects its unique blend of color and texture, retro and modern. Some tubs in slate-floored baths have claw-feet, others are whirlpool-style. There are spiral staircases – and Apple TVs. Across the street from Mass MoCA, which celebrates contemporary art, the collectibles on the walls of your room might be vintage plates. The inn’s appeal to the senses and its appreciation of its 19th century row-house heritage, makes it a welcoming retreat for guests. There’s also a heated outdoor pool, a native plant woodland for strolling and delicious grab-and-go continental breakfasts. In the area are eclectic shopping and arts venues as well as parks and preserves for hiking, boating, fishing and swimming.
