Hot Apple Cider Doughnuts Await at Equinox (The Hotel, Not the Gym)
Time to make the donuts...
It's a fact. Doughnuts are the new cupcakes and it was only a matter of time before hotels began incorporating the yummy fried dough into their menus.
At The Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester Village, Vermont, you can rest assured that their doughnuts are the freshest they can be as the hotel has its very own doughnut machine. And Chef Jeffrey Russell put the machine to good use immediately, concocting Vermont apple cider doughnuts which he's been giving out to guests.
Think of how giddy people get when they get a free chocolate chip cookie from Doubletree Hotels at check-in. Now think how ecstatic they will be if they received homemade apple cider doughnuts at check-in. That doughnut machine might be the hotel's best investment yet. Word is more flavors and fillings are expected to roll out in 2010.
The Equinox, a Luxury Collection hotel from Starwood, has winter rates starting at $299 on the weekends and $149 during the week.
