“Sets the mood for a visit to Yale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

When we entered, we saw a huge bookshelf and even more huge sculpture of spectacles--a delightful intro to a fabulous little hotel. Spare/mod decor, courteous and cultured staff, delicious and sophisticated food, all kinds of extra services and details, such as magazines in the lounge/lobby for perusing while sipping coffee and muffins for breakfast. Steps from the newly renovated and expanded Yale Museum of Art, the first rate Yale Repertory Theatre, and Atticus Books--not to mention Yale University itself. We took a guided tour of the campus--cost free and available to all. Reasonable price for this quality.

Room Tip: There are views of the campus on upper floors, north side.

We stayed in a 2 bed room after attending a performance at the Yale Rep Theatre. Beautiful, modern, the staff is friendly and service oriented. Very convenient to the Rep, and much of the campus. Great counter to work at with real desk chair and lamp, small but very sufficient bathroom; quiet, library-like atmosphere.
Beds very extremely comfortable, Iphone speaker charger, real business style phones at bed and desk. The elevator responded immediately which is something you don't see all that often in an urban hotel.

Some people have objected to the $22 valet parking charge but this is a city and you are going to have to park somewhere. For the extra money, car taken and returned quickly and well worth it. We did not try the restaurant as it was a short stay. I am a loyal Marriott rewards member but even at a slight premium over the usual choices, if I am in the area, can't beat this place.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel faces the Yale campus. On the 4th floor, had a view of some of the next buildi...

This is a fresh new hotel close to Yale campus and 3 blocks from Yale Art Gallery and British Art at Yale. Modern lobby filled with books to browse, clean very comfortable room with big bed and windows. Expresso available 24/7 in lobby. Friendly efficient staff. Wonderful to stay in a place where everything is smart and logical. Down Chapel St are Atticus Books and Cafe and the Book Trader Cafe ( used books). Further is Union League Cafe, an elegant older place with superb food and service for a delightful cozy dinner.. A wonderful 3-day stay in New Haven.

This is a gem of a hotel. It's located only steps from the Yale art museums and campus. I understand that this was a Holiday Inn at one time, but you can't tell. The decor, furnishings and fittings are all first class and very modern. The rooms are delightful and immaculate. If you get on the correct side you get a picture window and a lovely sunset view of what passes for a skyline in New Haven.

The service is excellent (they have free cookies and apples at the desk, free newspapers in the lobby and a comprehensive supply of sundries you may have forgotten to pack, such as toothpaste).

As parking is a premium in downtown New Haven and the meters only allow limited times, you will need to find a garage if have driven there. The options are to park in one of he very close-by garages or lots or leave it to them to valet for you. Either will cost you between $16 and $21 a night.

I went to Yale in the 80's and now teach at Yale. And I have to say in all those years there has never been a place like the Study. The hospitality is fantastic but the accommodations are superb. I get to travel to New York and Chicago quite a bit and the study is the best hotel I have ever stayed in for the all-round experience. From the valet to the restaurant to the room and the service, it's awesome. And I really appreciate the incredibly planned aesthetic that ties in architecture and style- so well done, yet it doesn't feel stuffy or cold. It's more $ than staying at the marriott or other places in new haven, but it is Totally worth it!

Sadly we only had one night at Yale to attend an event. We were told THE place to stay was The Study at Yale, and we accordingly booked a king room at the hotel inn. We had planned meals elsewhere so cannot comment on this aspect of the place, but the public spaces, service, and rooms were beyond our expectation. We love a contemporary minimalist feel, and this hit us perfectly. The whole idea of a library / study is not overdone but actually leads to a more restful and Yalie type experience. The location is perfect - a block from the old quad, in the center of the arts district, lots of eatery choices within a block including many ethic varieties.

There seem to be some chain choices in town, but don't miss a stay here as you will feel pampered and right at home!

Room Tip: We heard that it was worth the small upgrade to a king room, as the room itself is quite a bit large...

Have been staying here since 2009 when our daughter was a freshman at Yale. The hotel's proximity to campus (literally 3 minutes to Pierson, for example) means there are great views of clock towers and courtyards. The various museums are also on Chapel, as are many of the independent shops, Thai restaurants, Union League Cafe etc. The hotel itself is boutique-y with very comfortable beds, functional bathrooms and a nice workspace next to the large windows. The Heirloom is a nice place to have a drink, although the food is fairly forgettable. The lobby is cosy and you see a lot of parents meeting up with their college- age children. Will miss this place when our daughter graduates next year. Lots of memories.

Room Tip: Ask for campus view.
