James Hillhouse is the reason New Haven is known as “Elm City.” As a developer and politician, his vision of vibrant, verdant city had an immeasurable impact on the culture of New Haven. Our rooftop boardroom – The Hillhouse Room – offers vistas of its namesake’s handiwork: the tree-lined streets of New Haven, rolling west into the Connecticut countryside. This handsomely appointed space features natural light, built-in AV and accommodations for up to (14) guests.
