The hotel is very charming. Note that does mean it's old and doesn't have many of the modern conveniences. The bedding, sheets and room were clean and well appointed, though the rooms are small. On weekends the bar downstairs is open until 1 a.m., so if you have a room on the first floor plan on being up until then... More

Rooms on the street are excessively noisey. The other rooms are pleasant, but not luxurious. It is an old buiding which shows its age a bit. The srvice is "prévoyant" - excellent. The breakfast, included in the cost of the room was copious and pleasant. The restaurant was absolutely excellent. I had venison in what I presume was a sauce... More

On Wednesday, April 30, my wife and I dined at The American Hotel in celebration of our wedding anniversary. Over the years, we have stayed and dined at the hotel on numerous occasions and never have we been disappointed. Quite the contrary, we have always enjoyed ourselves immensely. From Ted, the owner, to Dawn, a Manager, Vinnie, the bartender, and... More

The hotel is absolutely charming with wonderful brick walls: the atrium is a masterpiece. The food is worth a trip: the "Peking" duck, wild rice and the bread are masterpieces. The wine list is immense and rather daunting, but with a little effort, you can find some great bargains. You can also spend lots of money. We intend to come... More

we ate dinner there and it was exceptional. this is not a cheap dinner. drinks and food ran $200 with tip. the ambience is to die for and of course there were the celebrity sightings and we were off season. the rack of lamb was exceptional, the fish of the day was perfect and we finished it off with bananas...

The American Hotel is a return to kinder, gentler days. I have had breakfast , lunch and dinner at the hotel and enjoyed all. The quality and care is superior. Fresh flowers always grace the lobby and a friendly greeting from staff is part of the package.It is a wonderful place to stop for a drink and nibble.The front porch... More

This place was very nice. I would highly recommend it. Very clean and very charming. We were lucky enough to get a parking space in the municipal lot behind the hotel but I could see that being an issue. The woman who checked us in and sat us for dinner was super nice and friendly. I had the happy hour... More

The American is a comfortable olden days style hotel with a lively bar scene and nice restaurant. The rooms are decorated in a period/thrift store/high-low style, but very comfortable. The linens are great. The hotel staff are superbly accommodating and helpful, and drinks in the bar are stiff! A great little hotel!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and loved it. They gave us a awesome king room at good rate because we went on an off season and not too many people were staying at the hotel. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly. The bar area was always lively and comfortable! The food at... More

Was there for Christmas Day Dinner 2013...$85pp. With reservations required you would think they would not run out of food. 2 at our table had to change their orders and the patron at the next table asked the waiter "If you're out of food why did I drive here from Southampton?"...this was at 6:30, Portions were unbelievably small and nothing...
