Frequently Asked Questions
After over 35 years in business, we’ve been asked more than a few interesting questions.
While this list of frequently asked questions doesn’t include many of our favorites, they are the ones guests most commonly ask us.
Booking With Us:
We need 72-hours (3 days) notice of cancellation. Cancellations before that time will result in a full refund. Cancellations made less than 72 hours in advance of the reservation will result in a full charge of the balance due for the room.
We charge the remaining balance to the credit card on file for a reservation 72-hours before check-in date. If you would like to use a different card, please leave a note in your reservation or give us a call at (203)-869-2110.
If the booking is over a holiday then a cancellation made less than one week in advance of the reservation will be charged in full. For groups of 4+ rooms a cancellation must be made outside of the one month mark or risk being charged in full.

About Your Stay:
What time is check-in?

- After using this door code to get into the Inn, you’ll find an envelope on the front table with your last name and confirmation number on it
- Inside will be information about your stay, directions to your room and your room key.
- If you would like to arrive before 3pm, we cannot guarantee the room will be ready. That said, we would be happy to hold your luggage while you start enjoying your visit to Greenwich.

- Check-out is at 11am. You are welcome to check out anytime before then. If you don’t see a Host at the front desk when you check out, you are welcome to leave your room key on the marble counter at the front desk.
- If you would like to check out after 11am we ask that you please speak to a member of the Host team. That said, we cannot guarantee a late checkout depending on if the room is occupied the following night.
What if I need to extend my stay?
- We are happy to help if you find yourself wanting or needing to extend your stay! Please let us know at least 24 hours in advance of your original check-out time if you would like to extend.
- Please keep in mind that you may not be able to extend your stay in the same room. If that room has been booked ahead of time, we will ask you to move rooms, and will do our best to accommodate your preferred room depending on what we have available.
- In the case of emergencies (such as canceled flights or other travel issues) we will also do our best to accommodate you. If we are completely booked, we will recommend other lodging in the area.
