About

If one mentions Essex in the presence of another who has visited this charming seaport village, there is sure to be mention of The Griswold Inn accompanied by a pleasant smile and perhaps the sharing of a fond remembrance. The "Gris", located in the heart of this historic hamlet, is what Essex is all about. Warm... Spirited... Comfortable. One can enjoy the camaraderie in its award-winning Tap Room; relish a well-prepared meal surrounded by museum-quality maritime art in one of its historic dining rooms; experience the stunning new Wine Bar with its innovative "small plate" menu and offering of over 50 wines by the glass; or curl up with a good book and simply relax in this lovely retreat. There is also much to do right outside the front door. Mere steps from the Inn are the majestic Connecticut River and the Connecticut River Museum, along with marinas, unique shops, galleries and historic homes. Use the Inn as "Home Base" and explore the Connecticut Shoreline with its many attractions: discover great shopping, cultural activities and the natural beauty for which this area is known. If it’s gaming you're after, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos are within easy reach.

We were upgraded to the suite because we came on a weekday and they had availability. The inn was quaint and enjoyable. We enjoyed appetizers at the bar next door then wandered into the parlor for live blues music. Highly recommend the oldest running inn in America.
