I loved my stay at Forty 1 North. Great location, wonderful staff, deluxe rooms (iPads, super soft robes and a dreamy bed). The downside is that there is noise from the bar/club downstairs on a Saturday nights, so families — or anyone not wishing to partake in the festivities — should request a quiet room. The restaurant is pricy, but delicious!

Stayed in the easterly loft Saturday, June 4th. The service was fantastic. Entire staff was very accommodating and helpful! Loft rooms are in a separate building right next to the hotel. Room was spacious with full kitchen. We had no issues with low ceilings like previous posts, my boyfriend is 6'3". The only negative, which I suspect is isolated to the loft rooms is the noise from Christie's restaurant/bar below. But since it was a warm weekend we had the ac on which did drown out some of the noise. I would definitely go back and try one of the rooms in the actual hotel next time.

The hotel and marina complex is understated elegance and charm at the highest level. The owners have spared no expense and demonstrate unique taste in every element of the design and furnishings.
The staff were friendly and professional and certainly, ask Mark to take you out on the hotel speed boat for a cruise around the waterfront mansions.
A stylish and elegant boutique hotel for those who desire something special and are prepared to pay for the privilege.

I reserved the West Loft for a Saturday night to celebrate my husbands birthday. From the website and other reviews I knew this room was not attached to the hotel but over Christie's restaurant/night club. I expected it to be first class and pristine - based on the price charged for the night (over $600).
We arrived and valet parked the car (which ended up to be in front of our room anyway) and checked in. Check in was quick and no problem. The female at the front desk walked us over to the loft and gave us a brief overview of the property. I was a bit disappointed with the room. They really have tried to make this an upscale environment but when you boil it down it's a 3rd floor apartment in an old building. The furnishings are comfortable and the technology devices available (Ipad, Wii, Ipod, etc...) are a nice touch. I didn't care for the bedroom as the walk around to my side of the bed hurt my neck and back (think 45 degree LOW pitched ceiling over half the room). The bathroom was small but still updated (a little bit of peeling paint on the wall though - noticeable). The kitchen was nice but watch out for the PRICEY snacks available in the fridge and cabinets. Look at the price list before taking anything!!!
My main complaint with the room was it was so warm. Knowing you have guests arriving on a hot and humid day and not putting on the AC prior to arrival made no sense to me. As soon as we got there we put both AC window units on full blast - which made conversing rather difficult as they were loud. The room never really cooled off though so sleeping was a little uncomfortable.
We had dinner at the Grill (separate review but also a mixed one). Also had drinks in the lounge and danced for a while downstairs. It was a great time. The main hotel and all attached to it are absolutely beautiful, I would want a room in the hotel if I were to stay here again.
I've read lots of complaints about noise but we didn't find it to be an issue - maybe because the AC units drowned out any outside noise.
Overall I thought the main hotel was stunning and the staff was courteous. I guess my main problem is the amount of money spent and the accommodations we ended up with. I wanted it to be special but it really wasn't.

From the moment we drove into the parking lot, valet, polite, friendly, responsible.
Check in was a breeze, very friendly.
Entering room was like walking into a movie, clean, modern, everything you can imagine, the view on the water was breathless, pictures came out beautiful.
While unpacking room service within 15 minutes for a cocktail and food, Tater tots for children.
Dining room has an oval bar, library with upscale pool table.
Dinner was amazing, great service, wines, oysters, mussels, etc.
Walk right out of hotel to shops on Thames Street a plus.
If your looking for somewhere to go where you don't have to do anything the hotel does it all for you Forty 1 North is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Just call and ask questions.

Stayed over Easter weekend with my husband and teen-age son. When we reserved one of the loft rooms, we did see the note that it was in the building above the Chrities restaurant and that there was 'live" entertainment some nights.

The loft was pretty spacious, but I would say that the square footage could be a little misleading as the ceilings are very low in the bedroom and part of the living area - not all is useful space.
The room did look like the pictures on the website, but the carpet was stained and the light colored sofa was dirty and worn. There were also several plants in the room that looked like they were dying from neglect. Overall feeling was that we were staying at a college student's apartment for the weekend. The bathroom was very small - nothing as luxurious as the pictures on the website. If you want a nice bathroom, you should book a room in the hotel.
So...what about the noise? well the loft rooms are on the third floor of the building and there are two open staircases that connect to the second floors (event rooms) and the first floor (Christies). The "live" music on weekends is a DJ and you can hear the music pretty well ...and the DJ announcing "last call". If you are a late night party person, the loft offers a lot of space for the money. During the day, you can also hear noise from events in the rooms on the 2nd floor.
On the plus side, it was a rainy weekend and we were able to grab a bite at Chrities without getting wet (both lunch and breakfast were very good). We enjoyed the use of the iPad in our room - used it to find shopping/restaurants in the area amd to play a little Angry Birds. Hotel location is very good, so we might come back again
