Burlington Hotels

A vivacious blend of cosmopolitan city living and historical New England charm, Vermont’s attractive epicenter sits on the picture perfect shores of Lake Champlain. A small city with a friendly, intimate atmosphere, Burlington’s young and lively student population keeps it moving to a spirited pace. Trendy shops, restaurants, and a buzzing nightlife inhabit the city’s core, whilst green and tranquil recreation exists just minutes away. Come summer Burlington bursts to life with festivals, concerts, and culture, whilst fall adorns the city with a famously vibrant display of autumn hues.

Things to see

Pretty and leafy Church Street is the city’s main shopping hub. Here you’ll find the bustling Church Street Marketplace and the glossy outlets of Burlington Town Center mall. The pedestrianized street is lined with al fresco eateries, where shopaholics can refuel between bouts of retail therapy. Post splurge, wind down with a stroll through downtown’s Waterfront Park. With plenty of picnic potential, the sprawling haven’s boardwalk offers scenic views of the sapphire hued Lake Champlain. If you fancy testing the water, North Beach is the best place to do so come summer. Gilded with golden sands, the lakeside retreat offers grills and picnic tables for when you’re not catching the rays. For scenic trips to Burlington’s neighboring communities, head to King Street Dock and hop aboard a Champlain Ferry. If there’s no destination in mind however, enjoy a weekend brunch cruise or a decadent candlelit evening on the water – complete with dinner, dancing, and live music.

Hotels in Burlington

With everything from trendy boutique digs to all the well known chain names, there are hotels in Burlington to suit every taste and budget. The more lavish hotels often come in cool and contemporary style, decked out with all the mod cons such as high speed WiFi and large LCD televisions. Big or small, the mid-range hotels all come well appointed and lack none of the necessities either. Many of the larger establishments offer meeting rooms for those on business, whilst swimming pools and gymnasiums are available too.

Where to stay

A hotel in Burlington itself is the obvious choice for most. Awash with shopping, dining, recreational, cultural, and historical attractions, it ticks every box for the perfect city break. If you prefer to dip in and out of the buzz at your own pace however, then Colchester might be more your thing. Just a few minutes north of Burlington on the picturesque shores of Malletts Bay, the rural town offers numerous water sports and recreational activities. Wrapped in greenery, historic Shelburne is a great town for exploring some of Vermont’s natural beauty. Attractions include American history at the Shelburne Museum, and firm family favorite, Shelburne Farms.

How to get to Burlington

Burlington International Airport is the main gateway into the city. Whilst the airport is relatively well connected for those flying in from America and Canada, those coming from further afield may have to connect via a larger airport. Located 3 miles from the heart of the city, getting in once you land is quick and easy, with plenty of taxis and shuttles available. The city is also reachable via the Greyhound bus, with services terminating at the airport. For those travelling in by train, the Amtrak stops at Port Kent NY during the summer months. From there it’s just a short ferry ride across Lake Champlain into Burlington.
