9/3/14: John Carver Inn and Spa Stay

Over the Labor Day Weekend we went to Plymouth to visit Plimoth Plantation and we were lucky enough to stay at the John Carver Inn & Spa.  The location, the rooms, and the pool are awesome!  I highly recommend staying there.
The location is fantastic as it is right near all Plymouth attractions.  The Inn is literally across the street from the Plymouth Grist Mill we were visiting as part of our Heritage Pass at the Plimoth Plantation and just a very short walk to the waterfront where you can visit the Mayflower II and Plymouth Rock .  There is lots of dining all around and also on-site.  It is a beautiful Inn.
I will start with the rooms.  The beds are unbelievably comfortable with a foam top on them.  The pillows are really comfortable too.  Usually at hotels the pillows are thin and uncomfortable.  These were great.
 The hotel features 80 spacious rooms and luxury suites, including 6 elegant fireplace suites with over sized Jacuzzis. Our room was lovely and also had a Fireplace.
 Here you can see the Fireplace.  This would be perfect in Winter.
 Here is the TV.
 The bathrooms were beautiful also and immaculate.  
The kids were mostly looking forward to the pool.  I was too knowing that their Pilgrim Cove Indoor Theme Pool had been recognized as a 2014 "Editors' Choice" winner in Yankee Magazine's Travel Guide to New England. 
You have to see this pool.  This themed pool is an awesome life-size replica of the Mayflower and Plymouth Rock.  You can even purchase a day pass if you would like to visit and not stay overnight.
The awesome part is the 80' water slide that winds through the historic ship.
 Both kids loved it!  It is very safe too as it is partitioned off so no one can get in the way of people sliding down.
The kids loved it in the pool!
There are also lap lanes.
Plus a Jacuzzi just for adults.  You must be over 16 to go in and it is right at the top of the stairs above the Plymouth Rock.
Recently the John Carver Inn opened the WaterFire Fountain Tavern.  This tavern has tapas and drinks and is adjacent to the lobby. 
 It has a unique circular granite bar constructed around the one-of-a-kind“WaterFire Fountain”.  This picture was taken early in the day so the fire was not on.  The fire is on at around 3 pm and on.
 Here is another view.
 There is also a Hearth n' Kettle restaurant which we had breakfast at.  This is also just a walk through the Inn to get to.
 I had a Linguica Omelet and it was really good.  The service was great and the food was really fresh.
I did not try out the Beach Plum Spa but here is a link to more information on services offered.  The John Carver Inn & Spa has been awarded multiple industry awards including, the Silver Level by The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders.  After staying there I can see why.
The John Carver Inn & Spa is located at 25 Summer Street, Plymouth, MA., 02360. Phone 1-888-906-618
