My wife and I have dined at the National many times and have always enjoyed it. We were looking for a small Valentine's Day get away and we decided to stay the night in the National. The room was great, very private, the bed comfortable and as always the food and drinks were fantastic. It was a great way to... More

Our weekend stay in the king suite was fantastic, and it was the perfect getaway. Super friendly hotel and restaurant staff! Cute town too and good location; short drive to New Hope/Lambertville. Recommended!

We really enjoyed our dinner Saturday. The flavors are so interesting with the Indian fusion of spices. My wife had the veal special and raved (I was able to get a small piece and it was great.). I savored the pork shank. Tender and tasty. The wine list is a little limited but fairly priced. The spanish wine was a... More

Frenchtown is a charming town with great shops. The National Hotel is well-located but is basically a dump -- our room was tiny, cramped, and a long hike to the third floor. The radiator in the bathroom was lying on its side on a piece of wood. The headboard was made out of some strange faux fur that I definitely... More

We are grateful for your feedback. However, it did take us by surprise. You stayed at one of our beautiful standard rooms--no fur headboard (you can look at our website for actual pictures)--that, you are quite correct, has a quirky/charming issue with the radiator in the en suite [bathroom]. Since the 2009 renovations, we were informed by architects and multiple... More

My husband and I spent several days here in June 2014 to celebrate our 10th anniversary, in the peaceful, picturesque river town of Frenchtown, NJ. Our lovely second-floor room opened out onto a semi-private balcony, where we both spent a lot of time reading, writing our novels, or sitting together, drinking wine during the warm summer nights. A graceful paper... More

We had an amazing stay filled with surprises such as the homemade breakfast frittata, bathtub with jets and the secret downstairs pub! Rooms were beautiful, location was perfect and the staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends or come to stay again!

We spent several days here in June 2014. Our room was charming and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. This is a quaint hotel in a little riverside town. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again.

MapQuest took me through Frenchtown about a year ago, while driving elsewhere. I liked it so much that I went back to explore and have already eaten at a couple of places.

A nice place to stay if you want to go out onto the river but don't want to sleep in a tent. I love how they have a quaint restaurant downstairs so I don't have to leave the hotel to grab a bite to eat before I hit the sack. The town surrounding is nice and the river rental place... More
