The newest property from Lark Hotels is worth planning a summer trip to New Hampshire. The Hotel Portsmouth is housed in a 135-year-old mansion, where its chic modern rooms exude zen. When you return from neighboring Market Square, relax on the outdoor patio or in the garden and revel in the boutique hotel’s many amentities, like complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon treats, an exclusive discount at Vineyard Vines, a fabulous personal concierge service, and best of all, summer rates from $199.
