Just off of Main Street in the college town of Hanover, NH, within walking distance of restaurants and quaint shops
Aptly named, Six South St Hotel is located on East South Street in downtown Hanover, near the Dartmouth College campus. This quaint New England town has seen the influx of some brand names -- such as J.Crew and Starbucks -- in the past few years, but it maintains a low-key, college-town vibe. The university is the main attraction, but visitors also come for the beautiful foliage in the fall season.
Many visitors who stay at Six South are visiting Dartmouth College (the epicenter of campus is less than a five-minute walk away). Dartmouth offers plenty to do, with a performing arts center and the Hood Museum, as well as numerous sporting events and an infamous winter carnival. Those in town for a longer stay may consider driving to several Vermont towns, such as Woodstock and Quechee (Vermont is right across the river). Guests staying at the hotel during the winter months will mostly likely want to ski.
Six South is a modern boutique hotel in Hanover; its prime location within walking distance of all parts of the Dartmouth campus make it a popular choice among visiting parents and alumni. Modern, spacious rooms have iPod docks, large flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi (although some may not appreciate the low lighting). The common areas -- such as the lobby (complete with reading nooks and free coffee) and the small fitness center -- are sleek and contemporary as well. Some still prefer the nearby historic Hanover Inn (which underwent a major renovation), but Six South's pet-friendly policies and fresh vibe add to its appeal.
