The main building of the Colonial Inn has overlooked Concord’s pleasant Monument Square since 1716. Like many historic inns, it’s not luxurious and is even tired in some spots, but it is comfortable and centrally located. Additions since it became a hotel in 1889 have left the inn large enough to offer modern conveniences and small enough to feel friendly. It’s especially popular during the October-November foliage season, and the 15 original guest rooms, decorated in Colonial style, are in great demand. Rooms in the 1970 Prescott House have country-style decor, and four freestanding buildings hold one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites. (Note that there are no elevators.) The Liberty, the inn’s main restaurant, serves traditional American fare (chicken pot pie, beer battered fish and chips, Yankee pot roast) along with salads and sandwiches. Afternoon tea is served on weekends 3 to 4pm; reservations are required. Food is also served in the Merchant’s Row restaurant, with drinks in the Tap Room and the Village Forge Tavern. In warm months, there’s a seasonal patio.
