My husband and I have been going to the New Hope area for a Christmas overnighter for the last few years to celebrate our anniversary. We love the Christmas feel, the lights and the many wonderful BYOB restaurants of the New Hope/Lambertville area. Having previously stayed in New Hope, we decided to cross the bridge and try a new place. Judging from the excellent reviews, The Lambertville House Hotel, a very quaint, boutique hotel, looked like the place to try.
We arrived late morning Saturday to beat out the snow that was forecasted. We liked that we could park our car right there and walk for the duration of our visit. Upon check in, Nicole quickly got us settled and even upgraded our room since they had a few cancellations. We then met Sherry who answered some questions and directed us to our room. I have to say it was lovely to be welcomed so warmly to this fabulous hotel.
The room was large with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub bathroom. The room is beautifully furnished with plenty of seating to read and many lights throughout the room which you don't see very often. The bathroom products were Aveda which is one of my favorite brands. I just loved the fact that they had a magnifying mirror on the wall for putting on make-up. I've stayed in many hotels and this is more of a rarity than common. Normally, you have to look for a spot with enough light and hope you can get close enough to a mirror for applying make up. The fireplace was an added bonus on a cold day and warmed the room for a cozy feel.
There is a wonderful bar/lounge on the main level with two fireplaces going and leather couches and comfy furniture make you want to sit, have a glass of wine and just relax before you go out. We loved it so much, we went back after we returned from our dinner.
We walked across the bridge to New Hope to have dinner at Martine's on the River which is a "must go". The snow was falling and it looked magical and something like a Hallmark Card picture.
We will return next Christmas season and will only go to the Lambertville House Hotel from here on in. We've stayed at a few places but none can compare to the lovely and beautiful rooms, and the warm, friendly and helpful staff of this hotel. This place is a "10" in my book.
