Best Burlington hotels

Burlington Introduction

Set on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain in the northwestern corner of Vermont, Burlington, may not be a major U.S. city but its cultural and natural attractions certainly pack a punch. The first city in America to run entirely on renewable energy, Burlington is famous for progressive politics and heritage architecture. Attractions include the pedestrianized shopping mall, Church Street Marketplace, and the University of Vermont. You’ll be dazzled by the array of art galleries, museums, historic buildings, and fine dining, all in a lakeside setting that has made the city one of New England’s most popular destinations.

Hotels in Burlington

From 5-star condos to low-cost motels, the flexibility of Burlington hotels caters to a wide range of tourists. Luxury-seekers can find spa services, outdoor pools, and tennis courts, among other high-end amenities, all without trekking too far from the city center. Top budget options still boast fantastic facilities, like free WiFi, pools, and complimentary breakfasts, so traveling on a shoestring doesn’t have to be strictly no-frills. The hotels in Burlington are dotted around every corner of the city so you can position yourself near the spots that intrigue you most, while booking in advance allows you to make the most of unbeatable Burlington hotel deals.

Where to stay

For the visitor who likes to be in the thick of the action, you won’t do any better than Burlington city center, close to the popular Church Street Marketplace. Prices are a little higher here though, so cost-conscious vacationers might want to consider Colchester. Some well-known brand name alternatives are available here and you’ll still be just a few minutes’ drive from downtown. There are also discount hotels along US-7 highway, near Shelburne, a short drive away. Guests here will benefit from their proximity to the Shelburne Museum, one of the region’s most delightful attractions.

Things to see

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Church Street Historic District is perfect for a relaxing stroll, taking in old-world architecture along your way. The pièce de résistance of downtown, however, is the Church Street Marketplace, an open-air shopping mall with over 100 shops and restaurants to satisfy all tastes. The 4-block market hosts year-round festivities and the buzzing atmosphere is as thrilling as the retail opportunities it provides. If you’re in the mood for a different kind of shopping, why not try a visit to the Burlington Farmers Market? Farmers and artisans from the surrounding area come together to sell food, treats, and local crafts that make brilliant souvenirs of your stay. Finally, hit the Shelburne Museum, where a fascinating collection of art, design, and Americana is displayed in a 45-acre village, with 39 unique structures. Take a walk through the idyllic grounds, or admire the exhibitions and educational programs that offer a peek into Burlington’s thriving cultural scene.
