What a find!! This is a NY/Miami/LA cool boutique hotel in Greenwich, CT. The hotel staff is terrific and helpful. The rooms are modern, high tech, well designed, comfortable and all of them have bidets! The restaurant is great with a lively, hip bar scene.

I came here on business and then brought my wife for a romantic weekend when we were in the area. I travel to the area frequently for business both with and without my wife and will be staying here whenever in the area.

Definitely a great place to stay.

For two people over 60, this hotel was at first a challenge. Took us a few minutes to figure out how to get into room (swipe, not insert key), to finding the light switches (only panel of buttons), to using the provided Ipad to control everything in room. But once we did, it kept us smiling. Comfortable bed, huge tv, and very nice staff made our night enjoyable. Though we didn't eat there, the bar scene was interesting at night, and in the morning there is a cute cafe serving espressos and pastries. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking Rt. 95, but we really didn't hear the noise. You might choose a room on...

The first word that comes to mind in describing this hotel is novel. Everything from the first-rate, heated toilet seat to the iPad controlled room is a novelty that should be savored when you don't have this type of treatment at home. The bed is the most comfortable I've slept on, ever! No pain when I woke up, which was a welcome bonus. You'd think that being sandwiched between I95 and Route 1 that it would be noisy, but it wasn't at all. Quiet as can be. The staff is incredibly friendly and check out the restaurant and chocolate lab while you're here! Will stay again.

Stayed here for an anniversary get-a-way. Hotel is small stayed in the king suite with romance package. Including champagne, strawberries, breakfast for two and late checkout. Room was small for a king suite. 2 balconies were good intentions but overlooked the closed down outside bar. Not sure on the kitchen in the room, large stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, sink and microwave. No stove or any utensils, cups, plates etc. kind of weird. Bed was out of this world comfortable. Technology was amazing for a hotel room. 2 large Samsung smart TV's. TV in the bathroom mirror, lights, shades and temp controlled with an iPad. Toto toilet, with heat, massager and cleaning. Eleven14 restaurant was tasty. Don't mind spending $$ on dinner but the portions were so small! Appetizer, 2 entrées and dessert for two $175, no alcohol. Food was delicious just left still hungry. Romance package sent chocolate strawberries from chocolate lab in the lobby, which were great, entire chocolate lab is wonderful. Would have been nice to choose the champagne. The late check out was useless being we were woken by the fire alarm at 9:30am. Had a small heart attack being woken up in such an extreme manner. After gathering my belongings and getting dressed I was told by the man at the front desk it was just a drill and he called the room at 9:15am to warn us but no one answered. I expressed my displeasure and was given an attitude. Looking for a manager I was told this gentleman was the "director or rooms" stay far away from him if you are looking for good customer service. He offered me nothing for the extreme wake up not even an apology. When on vacation sleeping in is a great bonus being woken up in that manner is unacceptable. Who has a fire alarm drill at 9:30am?! Absurd and rediciouls to me. Location was not great, not near the water or Greenwich ave. I'm sure there are plenty of better options for staying in the Greenwich area.

I loved The Jetsons-esque room with all of its high-tech gadgetry. Nice staff. Will definitely stay there again. Probably not the best place to stay with kids, but for adults, it's super-comfy. The only complaint I have is the lobby smelled kind of funny when we first walked in.

I have stayed five times there already and am blown away at the whole vibe the place offers. From the great lounge/bar area and the music to the fabulous rooms. The coolest bath rooms ever with the built in flat screen tv's inbedded in the mirror to the heated automatic toilet to the perfect shower. All excellent. Most of all the totally cool lighting and shades all controlled by the iPad.

The bed is perfect too in every case.

J House is a modestly priced hotel that has a very cool, contemporary design. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is an excellent restaurant in the hotel that has a bit of a 40+ bar scene going during Friday night. The rooms are ultra modern if a bit small but each has a giant LCD tv and a smaller one in the bathroom. There are some funny quirks like a romantic kit on the mini bar that includes condoms etc. If you have small kids, you might have some explaining to do. Bottom line for me, I liked the vibe, cool modern touches and restaurant. It was great for the price. I heartily recommend it.
