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.

If you're looking for a modern, hip, high-tech, high-quality place to lodge in the Stamford/Greenwich/Norwalk area....as opposed to the normal Hiltons, Marriotts, etc...this is the place. There are a few problems here and there...but after just doing a meeting there....everyone really enjoyed the experience. The outside area is lovely...food was very good...rooms were efficient and had some "cool high-tech effects"...and... More

I've been to Japan, so the toilet wasn't a total surprise. It took a moment to realize the bar next to it was really a remote and had "features" on 3 sides. The TV in the bathroom mirror was fun, but a distraction for applying make up. Shower was wonderful, but no place to hang anything up. Bed very comfortable.... More

First the good: beautiful, modern decor and impressive amenities. The bad: the is a small hotel, and you can hear every noise from the lobby and corridors inside your room. Sound carries very well here. The very bad: my husband and I planned a one-night romantic getaway for our anniversary. There was a wedding at the hotel the same night,... More

The J House, while not looking particularly appealing from the outside, is super contemporary on the inside. Firstly, the electric toilet is amazing! Without getting into too much detail, how wonderful is it to have the seat automatically rise when it senses your presence...and it's heated? It also serves as a bidet...and then some. The TV sets are imbedded in... More

The smart toilet is worth the price of admission by itself - you won't want to go back to the old way of doing things after this experience. As other reviewers have stated, "hi-tech" is their niche. The rooms are very modern, sleek, and the entire facility is very clean. You may want to ask for a room not facing... More

This hotel tries so hard to be "hi tech". And yet....the wifi barely worked in my room. The bedside light wasn't working. When I used the Ipad they leave in your room to adjust the lights, the curtains kept rising and lowering. The thermostat either required the mind of a scientist to operate or was just plain broke (I vote... More

This hotel is outstanding. From the outside I was hesitant but as soon as we walked in I was blown away. The hotel is very modern yet welcoming. The people who worked at the front desk were extremely helpful and gracious. They really go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. When we got up to the... More
