Planning Your Visit

If you will be joining us for an interview, please find some hotel and travel information below to help with planning your visit.


Approximate driving times (in good weather) from nearby airports are listed below.

Manchester, New Hampshire (MHT) 1-1/2 hours (75 miles)
Boston Logan Airport (BOS) 3 hours (135 miles)
Hartford, Connecticut (BDL) 2-1/2 hours (155 miles)
Burlington, Vermont (BTV) 2 hours (95 miles)
Lebanon, New Hampshire (LEB) 10 minutes (limited number of flights) (6.5 miles)

We have a small local airport in Lebanon, but it is often more expensive than flying into one of the other larger airports in the region. At times it may be possible to find a comparable rate (when taking into account the costs associated with travel here from the larger airports), but due to our unpredictable New England weather patterns, we strongly discourage you from selecting the Lebanon Airport.

There are three larger airports within approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours driving distance from DHMC.

The four hotels that are in the closest proximity to the hospital are:

  • Marriott Residence Inn
  • The Courtyard by Marriott - Both Marriott hotels offer a complimentary shuttle service that could provide transportation to/from DHMC and/or the Dartmouth Coach Lebanon stop or other nearby locations (please contact them directly to confirm this and make arrangements). We would not recommend walking to DHMC from these hotels, as you have to cross a busy road and there is no sidewalk access.
  • The Element - From their Facebook page: “You need more than a place to stay - you need a place to thrive. Element Hanover-Lebanon surrounds guests with clean design and open spaces. Our Hanover, New Hampshire hotel features everything needed for our guests to feel alive and balanced, such as Rise, complimentary breakfast buffet to start your day off right, Motion, fitness center, and more.”
  • The Hanover Inn - The Hanover Inn is the longest continually operating inn in New Hampshire, and the only property on the Dartmouth College campus. They offer complimentary wireless internet, a fitness center and room service as well as a restaurant and bar on site. You can catch the Advance Transit bus “Blue Route” at the Dartmouth Bookstore around the corner from the Inn with drop offs at the DHMC East and Cancer Center entrances.

For directions to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, please visit our Locations & Directions page. When you arrive at D-H, you have two options of parking: Lot 9 (PDF) (Shuttles from Lot 9 run approximately every 5-7 minutes, please get off the shuttle bus at the East Entrance) or the parking garage (could you link attached map) on site. If you park in the parking garage, please park on the top deck (or the highest level possible.) From the parking garage, take the elevator to the 4th floor to enter the hospital.

Once inside the medical center, the Department of Psychiatry is located on the 5th floor in Reception Area 5-D (could you link your map?). Please check in at the front desk when you arrive.

Also, if you will not have a vehicle, Advance Transit is a local bus line that stops at or near many of the hotels and motels in the area. Their service is usually limited to normal business hours.

We hope that this information helps you plan your trip to the Upper Valley and Dartmouth-Hitchcock!
