Were it not for the thin walls, I would have given this establishment an "exellent" rating. Despite the ultra-modern decor, incredibly tech-savy room and to-die-for Japanese toilet, I would have prefered a more inviting "home away from home" environment with half the tech toys and better insulated walls. Warning: Request a room on the second floor facing the back of... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at J House, as our room was really comfortable, clean, and well appointed. We knew from other reviews to request a quiet room far from the bar, and we were given such a room. The staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast at the restaurant was excellent. Our only disappointment was the fact that... More

I stayed at the J House for the first time for 15 nights whilst on business. I hadn't intended to stay in Greenwich as my office is in Norwalk, but Sandy made this the nearest reasonable hotel.

Really wanted to like this place. It's new and the linens and bed are good. But there are a number of shortcomings. Number One: there is no room service. The in-room iPad listed room service as an amenity. Despite the vaunted technology the hotel boasts, you can't place your order online. So I made the room service request old school... More
