Old and staid - - - this is not!
The J House has an ultra cool, post modern, Vegas / Palm Springs artsy vibe that is West Coast hipster to the max.
Movies on the walls, a pair of manaquin legs sticking out of a table, flaming fire pits ablaze as you make your way to the bar. You've entered an art museum that has rooms to let for the night.
The room? Very sci-fi. Once you enter there is a central command display. When you click on "welcome" the lights in the room do a gradual from off to on.
Next to the bed is a button that says "Good Night." When you push it the black-out shade mechanically moves into place across the windows and the lights fade out to darkness.
In the bathroom they have a Japanese toilet, for your pleasure. If you don't know what a Japanese toilet is... that's a reason to stay there in itself.
The staff is friendly and attentive.
The coffee shop served up the best cup I've had in 2 years.
By the way - I went first to the Hyatt in Greenwich but they were full. They booked me into the J House. So I went by accident. It will be no accident that I stay at the J House next time I'm in Greenwich.
