Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lambertville House Hotel has provided discriminating travelers with luxurious accommodations and gracious hospitality for almost 200 years.

Captain John Lambert built the Lambertville House Hotel in 1812. During its early years, the hotel was known as Lambert’s Inn and served as a stagecoach stop that provided lodging to U.S. presidents including Andrew Johnson and Ulysses S. Grant, dignitaries, and business leaders traveling the main thoroughfare between New York and Philadelphia.

By the 1980’s, the Lambertville House Hotel was in serious need of repair. In 1994, a change of ownership occurred and the task of renovating the hotel finally began. By 1997, restored to its 19th-Century glory, the Lambertville House Hotel reopened.

The present-day Lambertville House Hotel retains the beauty of an era gone by with elegant modern conveniences. Each of the hotel rooms offer unique features and distinctively classic touches. All guestrooms have jetted tubs and beautifully appointed baths. Gas fireplaces are featured in all but three of our 26 guestrooms including the two carriage house rooms adjacent to the main building.

The Lambertville House Hotel has been the recipient of the AAA Four DiamondAward of Excellence for the past 14 years. Impeccable service and attention to detail will greet you the moment you step into the spacious lobby. Whether our guest for business or pleasure the Lambertville House Hotel is committed to making your stay a memorable experience.
