When you ask your 10-year-old for headline help, you get right down to the exuberant essence of a place. The eco-chic new Hotel Vermont
in Burlington is a vibrant showcase for all that makes Vermont singular among the nation's 50 states. I was there for the grand opening celebration last month (with possible presidential contender Howard Dean
), and on my photo tour, you'll see how thoughtful details make Vermont's first independent hotel in 40 years a one-of-a-kind destination.
