On July 25th I proposed to my now fiance, and I was looking for just a close and quick weekend getaway from NYC. A friend recommended the J House in Greenwich, and I am SOOO glad I listened to him. I obviously wanted to plan something romantic, and I was put in touch with Bernard Augustin. He promptly and professionally...

When visiting the Greenwich area we pick the J House Hotel, Trendy,clean and modern. They are doing some interior rennovation on the 3rd floor, so avoid rooms near that (ask the desk which to avoid). There is free parking off the front entrance and additional parking behind the hotel down the narrow driveway. There are usually porters outside the front...

I have visited the J House before, and was excited to come back again. It is hard to find nice places to stay in the Greenwich area, and J House is such a treat. The pool is fabulous, the rooms are exceptionally clean, and the technology in the room is a blast. We also loved sitting around the fireplaces at...

We stayed here one night on the way to Nantucket for 4th of July. It is a beautiful property. Checking in after a long drive was easy and entering our room was so pleasant! The rooms are dark and cool and very comfortable. The controls to the room are located entirely on panels - one is located close to the...

Flemington, NJ
Reviewed 20 July 2015

Well I didn't love it. Very trendy conversion of an old Howard Johnson's hotel. They made it very modern and there is no question that it is comfortable. But it is very quirky and stark. And the electronic controls are not all that intuitive - which is relevant because everything is controlled by electronic touchpad. Lights, curtains, etc. For example,...

We sincerely apologize for your experience. We can assure you that excellent guest service is our top priority. We used to walk all guests to their rooms, but this system received negative feedback. We now have guests explore the technology and assist if there are any questions. Please know we take guest feedback extremely seriously. We wish we had the...

I was traveling from New Jersey where I had a terrible experience with another hotel. Then we decided to stay at The J House in Greenwich. The arrival, valet parking, front desk, check in and the interaction with the hotel personnel was great. The grounds of the hotel is super clean, lobby, elevator and hallways. When we got in the...

I recently had the pleasurable experience of staying at The J House Greenwich and I think its best to just start at the beginning. The moment you arrive there is someone offering to help with your bags, and while you're checking in, they even take your bags to the room for you. Normally at most places I've stayed, checking in...

Wow! It sounds like you had a wonderful time with us. Thank you so much for your review. We are overjoyed! I'm glad that you had the chance to experience so many of the different outlets at the J House. The 'Cold Roman' is a big hit.

Stayed for a family wedding and was provided great customer service regardless of being a busy time for them. We stayed on a Saturday night and they had a great pool area. Restaurant food was amazing. Wonderful service all around. This is my hotel of choice when I'm in town. Kudos!

I booked a king executive deluxe room that said on the website it would accommodate 3 people for myself and two daughters, 9 and 15.

This time at J House, I left a $200 pair of pants in the closet in room 310. I called multiple times, leaving messages for the Housekeeping Manager and speaking with the front desk.
