Hanover Inn at Dartmouth College to Open Minary Conference Center in November 2012

The Hanover Inn at Dartmouth — a historic 106-room property on a site overlooking the Dartmouth College Green that has held an inn since 1780 — is completing a three-phase "transformational" renovation, it recently announced. Ninety-four of its 106 guest rooms will re-open in time for Dartmouth Commencement in June. The 1,761-square-foot Hayward Room will open in August and the 3,933-square-foot Minary Conference Center in November, along with the remaining 14 guest rooms and a signature restaurant. Dartmouth College owns the inn and says it is designing the Minary Conference Center to give the college a world class facility "to serve the 21st century needs of the global Dartmouth community."
