Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policies and house rules.

We look forward to serving you and hope you enjoy your stay at the Stanton House Inn while we strive to maintain the level of service for which we have become known.

Stanton House Inn has limited availability, with only 20 rooms. As such, we strive to plan your visit as well as possible in advance.


We make every effort to accommodate all lodging requests. If we need to change a reservation, we either upgrade or move guests to a room with similar amenities.

We do not have an elevator; all upper-floor rooms are accessed by the main staircase in the front reception area.


Stanton House Inn is a historic property and therefore is not limited to ADA requirements. And due to the historic nature of the house, even our ground floor guest rooms have steps leading to and from the rooms. If you have any questions about accessibility please contact us before booking. Other hotels in Greenwich have amenities that can easily accommodate, with newer buildings.

Minimum Night Stays

During holidays and weekends during our high season (May to October), we do raise our minimum night stay requirements.


We lower our minimum stay requirement progressively in the days leading up to a busy period, starting 5 days in advance.

We want to host you, and want to ensure that we still have availability for you during our busy season!
