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


Joey (Katie Holmes) is feeling left out of Dawson's (James Van Der Beek) life since he has been spending more time with Jen (Michelle Williams) at their post-therapy ritual, and Jen and Jack (Kerr Smith) are growing apart because of the amount of time Jack spends at the frat house. To get away from a while, Dawson takes Jen with him to a film festival in New Hampshire, where his documentary is being honored. While the two enjoy the event, they reach a new level in their relationship that could radially alter their friendship.
