“THE MOST PERFECT HOTEL IN THE WORLD”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

No words can suffice to praise this superbly-managed, unpretentious hotel in a place full of academic pretention. Staff excellent, rooms superb, spacious, sensible, big towels, excellent restaurant with stunning tomato soup, comfy beds, everything done for comfort & pleasure. I wish I could carry it everywhere I go. I will rush to return.

Room Tip: If you ask for a quiet room, the staff do their best to accommodate.

In terms of location and comfort, this is probably the best hotel to stay at if you are visiting the university.

One star comes off for the price (it's a bit expensive), and the gym (it's not very nice, and doesn't have enough machines, though it has space for at least two more treadmills. In the morning it was very busy.)

I liked the small details that they thought of: the apples at the front desk, the pamphlet provided with Yale events going on that week, bottled water provided in the room, etc.

The Study is a little pricey, but it's worth it. The sheets are linen, which is just beyond. The bathrooms are designed beautifully. We got a view of Yale's Architecture school, which was beautiful. Reading the school newspaper (the oldest college daily) while looking out over the campus was a treat. Service was excellent. The staff was smart, friendly and very attentive. One of the best nights sleep I've had in a long time. Highly recommend this hotel if it fits in your budget.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the campus.

The Study is only a few years old and it still feels new and fresh. The location on Chapel Street is perfect, but note that it is more toward the end of the "nice" part of that street. It is a better location than the Courtyard but less so than the Omni.

Rooms front Chapel Street or more of a "back alley". I have only stayed overlooking the back part of the hotel and did not mind it, but then again, I spent little time in the room. I think the Chapel side is a bit more pleasant though you may get more noise.

Rooms are comfortable, modern TV and iPhone docks. Bath is small but white and bright. The lobby is very cozy and overlooks the street and the Yale School of Art building. There is a small stand for coffee in the corner. The Study has an on-site, wonderful farm to table restaurant on site. You won;t go wrong eating there.

Stay here if you want a more "mod" hotel and stay at the Omni for a more traditional hotel experience. The Study tends to run $10 more/night but it is worth it if you have a preference.

The only thing I wish that was different about The Study is the price. A little cheaper and it would be absolutely perfect. The room was so great...the bed was the super comfortable, the bathroom was pristine, the gym was great. We were there for a wedding and had the rehearsal dinner there and the food from Heirloom is never a disappointment...the coffee in the lobby was delicious. If you want a no-nonsense stay...this is the place. The Customer Service is top notch...you could not ask for better, more attentive staff. A real gem.

My wife and I stayed at The Study at Yale for one night. Having stayed at the same location many years ago we were astonished by the improvements to this property. The Study is a modern hotel in the style of New York boutique hotels. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked Chapel Street. The staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a great location on the Yale campus, close to museums, theaters and many excellent restaurants. This is an excellent place to stay when in New Haven and a significant addition to the hotels in the city.

The Study is the best and only truly upscale hotel in New Haven. It is in the heart of Yale University and the best of the downtown area not far from the New Haven Green. It has a professional but not stuffy modern ambiance. The rooms are decent size and the one I had looked out on slate rooftops and open sky from the third floor. The room had a leather lounge chair, simple bureau, extended desk along the windows, king bed and small but nicely done bathroom. I had a couple of technical issues with tge phone and later with the internet. Although later at night, they immediately sent an "engineer," both of whom were able to help me quickly. The staff were all friendly and well-trained. I had both dinner and breakfast in their restsurant, Heirloom, and truly enjoyed the food. There is also a bar with lounge area with sofas as well as a small lobby with snack area.
