I have stayed at the J House on 3 occasions and each one has been as good as the first. From the time you enter the lobby the front desk people are the most friendliest and kind employees you want to meet. There is always a smile on their faces and they go out of their way to help and... More

Nice, clean and modern room, although the "patio" is high walled, no view at all. Comfy bed, tv's in the mirror, nice tech system! The heating didn't work right, so we just shut it off. Disappointed that the restaurant was closed at 8:15pm and the front desk had no clue where we could get dinner (it was a holiday). But... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Very accessible and nicely detailed hotel. Not being tech savvy I strained with the coffee maker, lights, heater and privacy features. The room can be fully operated by an iPad (which lacked wifi signal a lot) and I had to fumble with switches I could not see in the dark. A hip hotel but too... More

This is a contemporary place with a cool feel and tech all over the place. Pretty much everything in the room is run off an ipad. If you're not tech savvy or use a jitterbug phone- you might want to avoid this...or bring a grandchild to turn on the lights and open the shades! The toilet...awesome. Again...lots of buttons to...

First time staying there...have been to the restaurant several times though for dinner.The Hotel is nice over all but instead of investing in toilets that wash you, maybe some better sound proofing in the walls would be a better idea. Booked 2 nights for my birthday with wife. Room was nice but unfortunately was on main floor facing parking lot.... More

Went off a recommendation of a local. He has his family stay there when in town. Great facility. Nothing over the top just quant and technology driven room. Staff was great. Food was good. I had Sushi one night. Wine list was great for a small place. Amazing walks through local neighborhood if you have the time.

Our stay was all that you would hope a hotel to be. Efficient at check in, clean rooms, requests granted, great decor, fun bar and restaurant, easy check out, and great rates for all that! Loved the contemporary flair and quirkiness to the hotel. Easy on and off Rt. 95. Will be back again for sure!

Needed a place to stay on the way to New England but not far from JfK due to a late flight and the J House ended up being pretty good. Not really near anything but the rooms were clean and comfortable and the food from the restaurant was pretty good, if a little over-priced. Everything in the room was controlled... More

I stayed at the J House for two nights on a business trip, and enough said by others about the hi-tech toilet and TVs in the mirrors!! I also found the staff helpful, and really enjoyed the sushi in the bar (excellent quality) and the top notch food in the restaurant. Definitely recommended - the only slight minus is the... More

Toilet was highlight of trip - 11 buttons! Real neat restaurant setup, outdoors open to inside. Very courteous staff! Highway noise was minimal, but staff gave us the best location. Room had balcony with chairs - great for morning coffee.
