New England is the perfect home base for travel lovers, as there's so much to do in our region. And everyone knows that choice of lodging can be the cherry on top of a fantastic trip.

Whether your hotel, inn, or resort has gorgeous views, extra amenities, historic charm, or an unbeatable location, these spaces serve as comforting places to relax, unwind, and rest your head after a fun-filled day.

VERANDA, a magazine centered on home decor, recently published a list of the chicest hotels in every state. But what specifically makes a hotel 'chic'? Here's what VERANDA had to say:

From standout architecture to top-notch amenities you won't find anywhere else, we have you covered with luxurious places that hands down deserve a spot on your travel bucket list. These spots all offer an unparalleled blend of style, comfort, and personalized service.

So what's the chicest hotel in New Hampshire, specifically? That honor goes to a recently-reconstructed luxury inn right on the Seacoast.

The Davenport Inn in Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Located steps away from Market Square, The Davenport Inn blends "historic grandeur with modern luxury", according to their website. 

The original structure – known as the Charles Treadwell/John Davenport House – was constructed in 1758 and used as an inn, boarding house, military headquarters, and other purposes over the years. The building was most recently a law office until 2022, when it was purchased by new owners and restored to the what it is today. You can learn more about the Inn's history here. 

Today, The Davenport Inn "showcases a rich heritage with preserved architectural details like ornate moldings and original hardwood floors," according to VERANDA. The magazine also praises the Inn's effortless blend of vintage with modern amenities, a combination that this writer loves. You can learn more about the different room options and prices here. 

To top things off, if you've got a special occasion coming up (perhaps a trip down the aisle), those at The Davenport Inn are more than happy to host your event. Click here to learn more about their wedding and function services.
