“Loved It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I wish I had more reasons to become a regular at The J House. I don't have a need for a hotel often in Greenwich, CT., but this is my kind of hotel. Easy access off Rt. 95, easy parking and a welcoming staff was a great start. The lobby was techy, but warm and inviting. Plenty of public space(s) to hang around in. A Chocolatier in the lobby that also had good coffee and pastries.

The room was fantastic. An iPad gave you the ability to control the lighting, temperature, and shades and browse the room service menus. Unfortunately, you could not order from the iPad. There was a TV in the mirror in the bathroom and the toilet had a Toto seat that did everything and more.... The shower was big and open. The TV in the room was also embedded in a bigger mirror, again a cool factor. Bed was comfortable. My only complaint is that I could not adjust the temp of the room through the iPad or the wall unit (it was too warm).

Rooms service was REALLY good!

i would go back in a heartbeat!

We just held my daughter's sweet 16 at the J House and told by her friends that it was a great success! We held the party in the big party room and had an informal parent event next door. Everyone raved about how cool the venue was and how great the service was. Ewa the catering manager and Chang who was in charge of the actual party went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests and had helpful ideas of their own.They and their staff ran an incredibly tight ship and kept everything running smoothly despite the large number of teenage guests. Every staff member came up to introduce themselves and even the chef took the time to say hello. I cannot say enough good things about the staff, the service and the amazing food. In addition, we had a hotel suite for the day of the party - everyone who saw the suite thought it was as amazing as the party itself. I have already contacted them about booking the J House for my younger daughter's Sweet 16!

My husband and I stayed with our 4 month old for one night. From the moment we arrived, the staff were extremely friendly and considerate. The rooms are very comfortable and the Chocolate Lab makes a delicious hot chocolate.

I stay here any time I'm in Greenwich. It is a very hi-tech hotel, everything is accessible via i-pad. The lighting, heat,and room service at your fingertips.
The BEDS are EXTREMELY comfortable. :-)
My room had a mini-fridge, coffee maker and alarm clock (that plays 4 different nature sounds for those of us who sleep better with ambient noise).
Nice TV's ( 2 of them, one is in the bathroom mirror...pretty cool)
The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating.
The restaurant is a bit pricey, but your in Greenwich what do you expect.
I must admit I have yet to eat there, but the menu looks wonderful and passing by the kitchen always smells delicious.
There is also a chocolate factory on premise (sorry, haven't ventured there either) Looks Cool.
The fitness room is adequate at best, I wish they would expand it a bit, both in square footage and equipment. There is enough for a cardio workout.
I haven't been in the pool yet ( it's outdoors) but the patio looks nice.

Room Tip: Unless your a heavy sleeper, ask for a room NOT on the I-95 side...a bit noisy starting around 5am.

In town for a party with friends and stayed at the J House. Very cool, trendy, modern hotel with clean, comfy rooms. Great service from front desk staff. Had lunch at the restaurant, great food. The chocolate fountain smelled delicious too. Would definitely stay here again.

Our son loved the 55 inch screen tv, and all the buttons that controlled the various light switches and the giant bed. delicious coffee every morning that came with free small pastry. the delicious smell of croissants and pain au chocolats filled the foyer. good burgers and soda. My son loved all the bathroom amenities, esp the heated toilet seat -- and the tv in the bathroom. the bed was
very comfortable. and the room was great overall.

Found a great deal on the INTERNET (company will remain unnamed) for this place, needed to be relatively close to NYC and a single night. A wonderful surprise. Super high tech, and guess what? It all worked! IPad on the night stand, a massive TV disguised as a mirror, lighting schemes (that were a little disorienting and took awhile to figure out) like: "Welcome" and "Goodnight" or "Privacy". The heated toilet set that went up and down as you passed by could only be surpassed by the high tech bidet. The lounge and bar areas were avant-garde and comfortable, there was a chocolate/coffee shop. Didn't try the hotel restaurant, but the staff was very helpful and friendly, not really what you might expect after walking into the 2525 hotel environment. If you're in the area, look for a deal and go there.
