    The Hotel Concord, the city of Concord’s first upscale boutique hotel, opened in August 2018 with the aim to become a cultural hub of the city with a striking design vision. The hotel has now opened all areas of the hotel following the completion of the top-floor guestrooms.

    The 38-room independent hotel brings the high-end hotel experience to the heart of historic downtown Concord. Located on the fourth and sixth floors of the Capital Commons building, the hotel features floor-to-ceiling windows, some of which include balconies and unique views of the New Hampshire Capitol building and newly redesigned Main Street.

    Each guestroom is a different shape and size offering each guest a distinctive luxury experience, with high-tech amenities like state-of-the-art climate control systems, wall mounted flat screen televisions, high-speed internet and Amazon Echo Dots. The spacious rooms are sound-proofed and include numerous high-end features such as luxury bed linens and bathrobes, California-style closets, mini fridges and well-appointed oversized bathrooms.

    “As we were designing the hotel, we to create a unique space that reflects the character and charm of the city.”

    The welcoming lobby is designed to be a place where guests can gather and relax, with a lounge and The Lobbyist bar, fireplace and light breakfast served each morning. Executive lounges, function rooms, on-site restaurant, 24-hour gym and 24-hour concierge service aim to provide guests of the Hotel Concord with all their travel needs during their stay.

    “This is not your ‘cookie-cutter’ style hotel where one room is indistinguishable from another,” said Michael Simchik, owner of the Capital Commons building. “As we were designing the hotel, we to create a unique space that reflects the character and charm of the city.”

    Located just an hour north of Boston, the Concord has seen a growth in development and cultivation of the local arts scene over the past decade. The recently completed redevelopment of Main Street added amenities and a more walkable downtown for visitors of the many boutiques, shops, restaurants and cafes. The Capital Commons building, which was one of the first redevelopments, also houses the Red River Theatres, a three-screen arthouse cinema featuring award-winning documentaries, independent films, an art gallery and private events.
