We had our wedding at The J House. We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. My wife and I are both foodies and had Very high hopes for the weekend. EVERYTHING including the hotels event planners, front desk, hotel staff and food was amazing. Tony's wowed all of our guests with every single aspect of food and service. A truly great culinary experience! We could not have been more pleased! We can't wait to plan our next event at this amazing venue!
My Wife and I wanted to try something different so we headed up to Greenwich to the J House on a recommendation from our Daughter & Son in Law. Check in was seamless and friendly, We were greeted with a cold glass of Prosecco. I was even gifted a bottle of champagne by the Hotel Manager to celebrate my Birthday. We had drinks and appetizers at Tony's to hold us off until dinner. Nice drink & delicious shrimp cocktail. We booked the executive King room. Extremely comfortable and immaculate. Pool was also awesome. Lastly a shoutout to Peter & Scully for their kindness throughout the weekend. We'll definitely be back !
We stayed at the J House as it was reported to be a high end hotel. Although there is a great deal of tech in the rooms for lighting, blinds, bidet, ... the creature comforts were lacking. Beds were not comfortable at all. Mattress was hard and lumpy. Towels were torn, thin, and ragged. No space on the sink counter. Bathroom was dark which made putting on makeup difficult. Breakfast, included, was meager. The bar and restaurant were very nice and popular, but again, $$$ Overall not worth the price.
A little pricey but a nice spot. Rooms are modern, clean and up to date. Swanky choice! I was not a fan of the restaurants service or food…maybe they were having an off night. There was a wedding and they seemed to pay those of us at the bar no mind. Close to highway and walking distance to a cute fresh food market.
This is our 5th time staying at the J house . As soon as we walked into the lobby , we greeted by Alex and Peter at the front desk . These two young men were great ! The staff is excellent under the guidance of the general manager Janice ! The restaurant is Tony’s has great food and service . The pool scene is awesome with bartenders Johnny and Vince ! It’s a can’t miss spot ! You will love it!!!! Eddie
Overall, this is a cool hotel. It's a nice modern, eclectic and funky hotel with the most technical bathroom I've ever seen.The pool area is very nice except they should make the music louder to drown out the highway sound since the hotel does sit right off of the highway.The big problem with this hotel is the noise level in the rooms. I've been told by a friend of mine that if you have a room overlooking the courtyard, you will hear a lot of noise. Well, my room was overlooking Tony's restaurant on the upper floor. That wasn't the issue but the front desk people were. You could hear them laughing at 6:00 a.m. My room was closest to the desk. The walls are very thin so you can hear everything.Other than that it was a pleasant stay and Tony's restaurant was superb as was the bar. Thursday nights are crowded and fun. I would go back again but I would ask for a more quiet location for my room.
Okay we have to talk about the tech toilets! Just too much fun. We had a family party everyone stated here. It was the entertainment conversation. All amenities outstanding in this hip revitalized hotel. Tony's bar restaurant is a must. Continental breakfast included and very nice. Cozy eating area.
Great eclectic vibe with an amazing staff. Clean rooms with iconic Toto bathroom fixtures. Dinner was excellent, the rooms were clean, and the location was easy to access. Would recommend.
We stayed at J House for three nights. There were pluses and minuses. The hotel is chic and attractive. Our room was nice and the bathrooms are very high end. The complimentary continental breakfast was very good and the restaurant, Tony’s, was excellent. We had daily maid service which was welcome after two years of Covid precautions where most hotels had stopped with maid service during your stay. However, the door to our room opened out to the parking lot which made us feel like we were staying in an overpriced motel. Also, if you are looking for a hotel with views, this would not be the place for you. The front is on a busy street and the back looks over a parking lot.
The staff at the j house are helpful friendly and very accommodating the front desk we were met by Peter he gave us complimentary champagne and made his services available for our stay!!!! We heard the restaurant was the must have but the pool was the main attraction for us
My friend and I stayed here as our friend was getting married in the area. The rooms are modern and spotless (with a very special loo). Loved the complimentary breakfast and tea and coffee, nice touch. But it’s the staff that make this place Billy and his team are great at making your stay extra special. I had some work documents that needed to be printed and they couldn’t have been more helpful. We also needed to extend our check out which again was no trouble. Thank you.
Food from Tony's was over priced reject food from the cheese cake factory ? place was all hype I checked in at 340 and drove home at 8pm. Beds were uncomfortable. Staff however was fantastic
My wife and I attended the Joh Hyde birthday party on Saturday April 3oth. The check in went fine until I asked if the person at the check n desk said they don't have a cash box at the front desk. Is this something new, since all of the other hotels I have stayed in had a petty cash drawer. The appetizers were wonderful and the food was very tasty. The wait staff was superb. My only regret is that our room 120 the lights did not work well. To make things work as a senior citizen, I had to strain my eyes for what buttons to push to light up the room. Not senior friendly if you know what I mean. Regards, John Hyde, iii father of the birthday boy and Host of the party.
After last minute travel cancellations, we booked a weekend here for a staycation with promise of delicious food and relaxation (reviews), but it was mostly disappointing. The spa was the highlight and yes I would go back for the spa alone! Parking - valet and self park options. Lines get long at peak times Check in - no issues Room - windows faced the highway and it was terribly noisy all night long! When we asked for a different room, we were told the other option is facing the garage which is often noisier on weekend nights. I found that incredulous because it means the staff is clearly aware this is an issue, and they have made no changes to rectify it. For all the useless technology in the rooms, it would've been lovely to have noise-blocking shades!! Food - ordered room service (a few things) and the food was worse than cafeteria. Decided to skip the restaurant since it supposedly came from the same kitchen. Complimentary breakfast is also a joke, but that's common for hotels like these. Overall, this place seems to be a locals fave for nightlife and a lovely spa experience. 2.5 Nothing more.
The vibe gave us modern chic! This is more for couples and adult (girls trips) not family oriented. Definitely $$$$My husband and I stayed Friday - Sunday and nights were litt ! All of their party rooms were booked each night . There was a lot of incoming but the rooms were sound proof so we didn’t mind.- rooms are small and equipped with the basics , they have TOTO toilets we love those lol-The restaurant requires reservations but you can just sit at the bar.-breakfast is included but the menu included -Fresh fruit , coffee ,cereal,boiled, eggs, yogurt,pastries and orange juice!They have a separate breakfast menu where you can buy breakfast sandwiches! At a good price and amazing quality.(Their premium coffee was good)
