The Poconos’ top luxury hotels are playgrounds for grown-ups — but with very different personalities. Learn more about the best luxury hotels in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains region.
Deep in the Poconos, The Lodge at Woodloch is an upscale adult-only retreat with a spa aesthetic that feels miles away from the area's infamous gaudy honeymoon suites and heart-shaped hot tubs. It has all the usual perks of an all-inclusive resort in the region, with acres of woodland, a private lake, and an adjacent golf club, but the restaurant here is a grown-up farm-to-table affair with some of its produce sourced from its own garden. Guests can spring for chef-curated dinners, with cocktails and a wine list worth exploring. On top of substantial rates for rooms that are somewhat dated, alcohol and extras don't come cheap, but couples looking for a relaxing spa holiday should find what they seek here.
Packed with adult entertainment and leisure facilities, Mount Airy Casino Resort has several eating options spanning the spectrum from junk food to semi-fine dining, with a Guy Fieri restaurant falling somewhere in between. A large interconnected indoor/outdoor pool is on hand as well as a seasonal golf course. Rooms are modern and quiet, despite all the action downstairs at the heart of the hotel -- the smoking-allowed casino. The hotel maintains non-smoking rooms with hefty fines for breaking the rule, but smells can still be pervasive throughout common areas.
