“Nice Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We stayed at the Study at Yale on a weekend visit to New Haven. The rooms are pretty basic (reminiscent of college) but comfortable. The bar and restaurant downstairs were very good with a nice local selection of food and good wine/drinks. The location is great and the staff was cordial. Nothing particularly "jumped out" about our stay but it was an enjoyable visit.

We have stayed at The Study several times, while visiting our son a school. This is a really comfortable hotel. The rooms are well appointed-modern but not stark. The beds are great.The lobby is terrific-lots of comfy chairs and couches-a place to curl up with a good book--very different than most hotel lobbies. The restaurant is very good-using locally grown ingredients. The service is a little slow but manageable.The hotel location is perfect-near museums, restaurants and shops.

the location is perfect, right on chapel street and seconds/minutes to all that new haven and yale has to offer. the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. the rooms and beds are very comfortable. the design is minimalist, but functional. i personally liked the light 'danish' wood scheme and found the room to be very light and airy. the lobby 'library' is also comfortable and well designed. would definitely come back.

I have stayed at The Study 2 or 3 times a year for the past 4 years, to attend squash tournaments at nearby Yale, and I love it. It is an easy walk to many restaurants and shops, the Yale Art Museum, not to mention the Yale squash courts. The downstairs lobby is inviting and a great place for their free morning coffee and NY Times as well as for a drink at night. There is also a very good bar and restaurant in the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are on the small side but compensate for that with terrific matresses on king size beds. The bathrooms, too, are a bit cramped - there is no counter space to speak of surrounding the sink - but the shower is very roomy and the bath amenities nice. I would not stay any where else in New Haven.

Room Tip: Get a room with a king, rather than queen, size bed, unless you happen to travel at a time when the...

Charming boutique hotel with great design and amenities in limited space. Bathroom, shower and beds all top notch. The restaurant is probably the best in New Haven - try the kale salad, homemade baked ricotta and the scallops. The Study makes one look forward to their next visit to Yale.

Great location when visiting Yale and the surrounding shops. We drove down for a Yale basketball game. Check-in was speedy and the valet/bellman was quite helpful and efficient with both luggage and our car. The room was well-designed. Though it was an average sized-hotel room, it easily accommodated our family of four and a dog for a single night's stay. The 2 double beds were comfortable. The bathroom is not large but spacious enough to double as a changing room as needed.
Complimentary Poland Spring water was provided in the room. Tap water tasted the same as bottled. Missing was a coffeemaker. I imagine a single cup serving coffee maker would have fit well into the overall ambience and decor of the room, but alas none was there. My husband went downstairs and found some coffee for me in the morning.
We did not eat at the hotel. The reviews of the restaurant were not inspiring. Instead we ventured out on foot and found a number of very reasonably priced eateries for breakfast (Atticus), lunch (Shake Shack) and dinner (Thai (next to The Study) and Yorkside Pizza).
The Study is a litte pricey, so do not recommend for budget travelers. For others who opt for convenience and freshness, it is the place to stay when visiting Yale/New Haven.

As others have said, this is a stylish and modern hotel that does not sacrifice warmth and comfort. We were in town for a family gathering to see our youngest play at one of the "rock/jazz" music venues. I chose this hotel in part because it was walking distance to the venue. I was pleasantly surprised to learn it was also steps away from the Yale Art Museum and abutted the Yale campus. The feel around the hotel is urban college town, and in less than a half block you are immersed in a beautiful old college campus. Staff was lovely as well.
