Reviewed 19 April 2015

Renovations are underway but thus did not impact our stay at all. Room was quiet and comfortable with fridge and microwave. Great sandwich/deli place just down the street. Great facility for events. We were able to get a rollaway bed, but had to ask at desk and then call before it arrived. Nice street with a variety of shops nearby

Upscale small boutique hotel. Loved every moment. Planning: From the planning with Amanda to guest check-ins with Julia it was pure joy. This hotel knows how to take care of their guests. Reserved 33 rooms for wedding guests. Numerous calls to Amanda for planning purposes were responded to quickly and with such joy in her voice to ensure all went...

We enjoyed our stay. Very clean and bright. Seem to focus on weddings but we stayed while visiting Montclair University. Pretty good breakfast included. Polite staff and beds were pretty comfortable. The lobby was under construction, but it seemed it was due to a sprinkler incident. Even so, lobby was pleasant. Would definitely stay again!

Dear Pickez, Thank you so very much for your kind marks and friendly review. Unfortunately during your stay there were repairs being made due to a sprinkler head pipe break. Someone hung their belongings in a place that should never be used as a coat hook. My apologies and I'm glad that you acknowledged there was minimal interference in our...

Weston, Connecticut

Stayed here for a business trip in January 2015 for two nights. The staff was very accommodating and the rooms were clean and quiet. The restaurant closed by 9:30pm so I missed a dinner opportunity. I heard they were renovating the gym but it wasn't done when I stayed there. Otherwise it was a pleasant experience.

Dear Alisa K, Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor. Your comments are truly appreciated. Our review unfortunately is not one that makes us proud.

Very nice staff, very clean rooms and lobby. Nice accents - good towels, sheets, blankets. I particularly loved their bedside pens; silly I know, but I prefer blue ink to black and this hotel is one of the few that has them. One of my favorite New Jersey hotels, to be truthful. We also tried the restaurant attached, an Italian...

Went there to attend a family gathering in West Orange. The staff was great and so was the breakfast. Will definitely stay there again. The rooms are large and comfy as well as the amenities. Easy to find on GPS too.

Nice hotel. Clean, liked the restaurant, room was nice. Staff well-trained etc. A good place to stay. Easy to drive past because hotel signage could be better but probably wouldn't fit as well with the neighborhood. Seemed like a good place to have a wedding.
