My husband and I spent several days here in June 2014 to celebrate our 10th anniversary, in the peaceful, picturesque river town of Frenchtown, NJ. Our lovely second-floor room opened out onto a semi-private balcony, where we both spent a lot of time reading, writing our novels, or sitting together, drinking wine during the warm summer nights. A graceful paper...

We had an amazing stay filled with surprises such as the homemade breakfast frittata, bathtub with jets and the secret downstairs pub! Rooms were beautiful, location was perfect and the staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends or come to stay again!

We spent several days here in June 2014. Our room was charming and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. This is a quaint hotel in a little riverside town. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again.

MapQuest took me through Frenchtown about a year ago, while driving elsewhere. I liked it so much that I went back to explore and have already eaten at a couple of places. Yesterday, I stopped in at the National Hotel for lunch with two friends. The waiter/bartender was very personable and made us quite at home at a table in...

A nice place to stay if you want to go out onto the river but don't want to sleep in a tent. I love how they have a quaint restaurant downstairs so I don't have to leave the hotel to grab a bite to eat before I hit the sack. The town surrounding is nice and the river rental place...

Stayed here in July 2014 while visiting family in the nearby area. Didn't know what to expect, as the place was in shambles and foreclosure in 2008. Was pleasantly surprised that the place, although it still needs work, is as pleasant as it was. Marlon was so accommodating and friendly, and personally showed us around the very historic hotel. He...

The National Hotel in Frenchtown is, for us, an oasis in a desert. Imagine a 175 mile drive as the desert and Frenchtown and the National as the oasis. We are a senior couple somewhat immobile that visit our Frenchtown based son as often as we can physically and financially. He cannot drive to our home in Southern Delaware. The...
