Stayed at Gryphon House this past weekend for three nights in the Riverview room, and absolutely loved it. Not only was it super-clean, the breakfast buffet was excellent -- everything from cereal and oatmeal to baked goods and biscotti -- not bad for a continental...More

We stayed for a long Valentine's Day weekend in "Riverview", a welcome respite from the blizzard outside! This mission style room, really a suite, is huge, fresh, well-appointed, and offers a soulful picture window of the Charles--wonderful "repurposing" of an elegant old brownstone. There's bottomless...More
