The J House has plenty of buzz. The food is great, the bar and restaurant are cool places to hang out, meeting rooms seem always full, and hallways and rooms are stylishly decorated. When I last stayed here years ago, my room on the ground level had to be changed due to poor phone reception. When I returned on September...

Stayed two nights for a wedding in the area. It's an incomplete hotel, or rather a hotel that has focused almost too much on certain details and not on others. Fancy Japanese-style toilets that blow the fuse so often in the bathroom the front desk has a picture drawn to show how to reset it (note they did not offer...

Probably one of the nicest rooms ever, not counting when I was accidentally upgraded to a suite at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Very, very high tech. We were only there for one night and didn't have an opportunity to tour the entire place, but what we did see and experience in our room was top shelf. Let's just say...

As a family of five we had a great time at the J House made even better by the staff who were excellent. Special mentions must go to Marissa, Eric and Billy who were helpful beyond the call of duty and all other staff were great Would definitely stay again.

I remember when this location was a Howard Johnson's hotel which was converted by the current owners into The J-House, and done well. The Hyatt up the road is OK, if conventional. Meanwhile, the Delamar is pretentious and over-rated. The J-House provides a fresh take on lodging and dining. The reception area and adjacent coffee bar are fresh, clean and...

Fun destination 1.5 hours door 2 door from NYC. Pros: Clean, sophisticated technology amenities, comfortable bed,spa massage with reflexology was wonderful! Great makeover from a 50's/60's Howard Johnson hotel property into a chic 80 + room property. Small dogs permitted. Negatives: No comforter on bed... Only 1cotton blanket, with a 2nd one in the closet for back up, car concierge...

Really liked this hotel, very stylish and modern. The suite had a kitchen area, lounge and large bedroom. Continental breakfast was included with the room rate but it was pretty disappointing. I would recommend you pay more for the al a carte breakfast menu.

If you're looking for a quiet place to stay... Don't stay here. Rooms are not sound proof... At all. Can hear every word from downstairs, outside, and hallway music, which is extremely frustrating if you have an early morning. Make sure you're in "the main building". Ground floor rooms are kind of sketchy. Rooms are great overall (not including the...
