My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. I hate when reviews aren't detailed, so I will be. We stayed in the King Suite Saturday-Tuesday (so I will speak to our experience for that specific room/time) We checked in Saturday, and the room was on the 3rd floor. there is no elevator so you will have to walk the...

Thank you for your review! We truly appreciate the time you took to write this & all the details that you included. As a historic, boutique hotel, we pride ourselves on the work that has gone into restoring the establishment, as well as the exotic flair & sophistication of the guest suites, which would be compromised by adding a microwave...

My wife and sister-in-law accompanied me to this charming hotel this weekend as we celebrated my sis-in-law's birthday. Let me begin by saying if you're looking for a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton"esque" feel for your rooms, then my best advice would be to not stay here but spend the $500 or so per night at one of those beautiful...

I booked a room for Valenties Day weekend for my lovely wife and I. The people who work here are very pleasant and accomodating. And the building it self is charming. I found the price to be a bit high considering the accomodations, but it was a Valentines day weekend so I guess that is to be expected. The room...

The hotel was nice. We liked the old charm. We just want to make a few recommendations for the hotel manager. 1. Fix the curtains. It doesn't cost that much to put new curtains in a room. Ours did not work. 2. Dusk and clean the windows for spider webs and bugs. 3. Provide a bathroom floor towel. 4. Guests...

We took a last minute weekend getaway to Frenchtown. What a quaint and picturesque town on the Delaware River! Hotel is very well located on main drag of this small town. Our room was towards rear of hotel which permitted us not to hear street noise. Room is small but adequate. Radiator in bathroom was propped up with a piece...

Recently, I was a participant in a GreenFair event in Frenchtown and when every nearby hotel did not return my inquiry or were priced "off the wall," I called the National. Not only were they the best price but their kindness, courtesy and consideration made them the best. I had an unusual request of charging my electric car I their...

I have been back and forth to the National Hotel in Frenchtown from mid-August to mid-September this year and have been very impressed with the attentive and personable service. The rooms are comfortable and appointed with sturdy antique furniture from the 19th and early 20th century--mine had a beautiful sleigh bed very like Emily Dickinson's. And the bathroom was modern...

We stayed there a month or so back and were very disapointed in the room. Very dated is the best we can say. Noticed how low the bed sat and realized it was a matress on plywood, no box springs. Jacuzzi tub was filthy (the staff did clean when we complained). None of the blinds on the four bedroom windows...

This is very surprising to all of us, because when you stayed with us, our General Manager made sure to walk you through the room’s amenities, and showed you the Jacuzzi tub, which was spotless, as well as showed you the bed to make sure it met with your approval. We do this as standard operating procedure for our guests’...
