My husband and I fell upon the J Hotel on our way home from a trip we took North from DC to Maine. What a great fine! The check in was great. Staff very friendly and fast. We loved the room and loved the technology in it. It was fun to play with all the features. Very high tech. We...

We stopped here to break up a long drive from Ptown to DC having just left at 3:30 PM. JHouse worked out great. We booked from the road arriving about 7:30PM. Having seen that it as near 95 we asked fr a quiet room and that is what we got on the front of the hotel. We only heard the...

I would not return to this hotel. Walked in with 4-star expectations, left with a 2-star experience. Room was extremely small. Electronics were not intuitive and some did not work, despite having a tech visit. Room service lost an order, resulting in a 1.2 hour wait. They did credit us $50 at checkout, but the staff did not sound surprised....

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.

Reviewed 23 August 2016

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...

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.
