Hotel New Hampshire is the 9th episode of Season 5 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


Dawson (James Van Der Beek) takes Jen (Michelle Williams) on a road trip to a small film festival in New Hampshire where his documentary is being honored. The spotlight is intoxicating for both of them as they share one of the single most momentous events in a boy's life.
