The National Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel where guests can enjoy comfort and casual elegance in stylish surroundings. The guest suites and rooms offer modern amenities, are generously scaled, and richly appointed with a focus on every attention to detail. The National Hotel has quite a colorful past. It was originally built in 1833 and served as a stage coach stop and a brothel. The original building on the site was a smaller inn, called “The Sign of the Buck,” originally built by Samuel Powers. It was later rebuilt in 1850, renamed “The National Hotel” or “Upper Hotel” by its owner, Robert L. Williams, when the railroad came to town. The Postal Annex building was a blacksmith shop, hotel stable, 15-car garage, saloon and billiard parlor, horse shed, and restaurant. Additions to the building were made in the 1890s. The National Hotel has remained a charming hotel, restaurant and bar since the 1850s. It even boasts a friendly and inquisitive ghost, who (as the stories tell it), visits Room 304 and asks questions about technology: “How does the telephone work?” one guest reported. Located in historic and charming Frenchtown, New Jersey, The National Hotel is nestled alongside the Delaware River in Hunterdon County, just across the river from picturesque Bucks County, Pennsylvania and only a few miles from other quaint river towns such as Lambertville, New Jersey and New Hope, Pennsylvania.
