Many pass through this New England city, on the way to the sea, Boston, and New Hampshire. But there are a variety of hotels for the discerning traveler here in Lowell, be it a bed and breakfast, a luxury hotel or a chain stay. Read on for our selection of the best hotels in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center in the heart of Lowell’s historic downtown is a popular stop for visiting families, business travelers and leisure travelers alike. With 230 rooms and suites, this hotel has the capacity to host visitors in even the busiest of seasons. It is in a prime location close to the Merrimack Repertory Theatre, Lowell National Historical Park, and the shops and restaurants of downtown.
Courtyard Boston Lowell/Chelmsford is ideal for the business traveler. With a host of amenities to decompress after along day at meetings, like the outdoor pool and the state-of-the-art workout center, this hotel is ready for whatever the traveler might need. Families may also prefer the trusted service of Courtyard hotels over a non-brand hotel, because sometimes interesting and quirky are not the most important features after a long day of sightseeing with the family.
Just 15 minutes out of the city, Stonehedge Inn & Spa provides a rustic sanctuary for patrons. This European-style country manor is nicely tucked away in a pretty deciduous forest. Try the inn’s steam room and sauna to unwind after a long journey, or head to the restaurant, Left Bank Restaurant, serving New England-inspired cuisine, with wine tastings on offer as well.
Fletcher Tavern Bed & Breakfast is an 18th century gem that goes six generations back; the family of original owners still own the property. All three rooms maintain their Victorian British and American sensibilities, although they have been updated with modern amenities and private bathrooms.
The Best Western Plus Chelmsford Inn is a great place to come for a quick stay before hitting the road the next morning. Its close proximity to the highway makes it ideal for travelers, although the hotel provides many opportunities to enjoy oneself while you’re here. The outdoor pool and complementary breakfast buffet are more than enough reason to stay until checkout, which is bumped back here until 12pm.
