My wife and I just spent six nights in room 17 in the carriage house behind the main inn. The room was clean, temperature controls worked well, beds reasonably comfortable and very nice towels (highlight). With one exception the staff was cordial. However, at $230 a night, there was much left to be desired. Poor room lighting, old tube tv... More

I grew up in New Canaan and now live out of state. I always stop in town when I am traveling to or from my home. I started eating at the RS a few years ago and now stay here when ever I am in town. I agree with other reviewers that the Carriage house is quieter and a room... More

Who knew that on Friday and Saturday evenings, the Riger Sherman bar turns into an Americana speakeasy where Yankee CT meets South Jersey Rock ~ my friend and I were returning from a party and it was early around 9:30 pm or so looking to hear some music and get a drink - we found a few folks at the...

The Inn is about the only place to stay in New Canaan and they have a no cancellation policy so even if you try to cancel well in advance of your stay you will be charged. We stayed there in July and paid $235 for an outdated room with a kind bed (actually two twins on a king platform) and... More

We stayed in the suite because we needed 3 rooms and this is basically the only hotel we know of in New Canaan. Their reservation says that the suite has two bedrooms and a living rooms with a pull out sofa but here is what it really has: One nice bedroom; a second 'bedroom' that is very small and has...

This inn is in a beautiful part of Connecticut and a very upmarket town. The ambiance is great, but there were a few disappointments. Our room was dark and rather cramped. There was no coffee/tea making equipment in our room, and no ice bucket. You could get ice from the friendly registration staff. The bar/dining room was also rather dark.... More

Stayed here for two nights in June. Lovely area, lovely property, lovely building. Definitely felt more like an informal inn than an intimate bed and breakfast and also felt like a place that is more familiar to locals than it is welcoming to out of town guests. There is no main, parlor-type seating area--which surprised and annoyed me. There is... More

Disappointed. Not by the food but the luke warm and very slow service we received on a Wednesday night! We were seated in the bar area, which was perfectly fine. Our table of five told the waiter it was my birthday, but he was completely disinterested. Having lived in the US for over a year, I love the fact that... More

I stayed at the Roger Sherman Inn in late March 2014 for a short weekend getaway and had a wonderful time. I was in the handsomely decorated carriage house for 2 nights and really loved my stay. The Roger Sherman Inn is located just outside of downtown New Canaan, CT and is a 5-min cab or 15-min walk from the... More

Very friendly reception. Helpful: i got a room in the carriage house in the back, which was way to close to the kitchen and its noisy ventilation system, keeping me and my jetlag awake the first night. I asked and got a nice room in the back of the carriage house the next night, which was silent as can be.... More
