From a Systems Consultant from Florida
"You folks have no idea of how great it was to enjoy your hospitality over my 6 month consulting assignment in Trenton with the State of New Jersey. This is one of the most pleasant away-from-home-business-trip-cycles ever! Thank you for keeping it professional yet casual, and clean, comfortable and cool. I actually look forward to my next job assignment in NJ so I can stay here again! And I look forward to returning with my wife to experience the fall foliage."

Recommended Guest Rooms and Suites for Business Travelers

Hosts Carl and Nadine have been professional innkeepers for over 20 years. 

Carl is a business traveler himself, as he is a frequent guest speaker at conferences across the country.  They know what business travelers want, and they make sure to provide all that and more.  ​

Thanks! I think if more business travelers like me discovered the pleasures of inns like this, there would be fewer stressed business travelers!
