Princton campus hotel

So close to campus! No late night food service. I didn't pay for internet but it worked in my room. Parking garage is close by so you don;t have to drive to Princton.

If you are making a day trip to Princeton U and the town, plan on being there all day and try to get there early morning. Start the day with a visit to the university, stroll everywhere there and make sure to go into the cathedral on campus (where we were treated to organ music that combined with the setting... More

Beautiful University that lives up to it's reputation. We attended a Football Camp and was very impressed with the staff. The location is convenient to all highways and the location is beautiful.

This university is stately, beautiful, and historic. I was impressed with its age and the maintenance of the gardens, yards, statues, and buildings. I am delighted to have had the experience to have been there to see this. The down side is that shops and restaurants on or near campus, are very pricey.

Went to walk around 2 days after Thanksgiving. This school is older than the good old U.S.A. Founded in 1746, this college is so historic in alot of ways. The Art Museum (free) has Remington's, Warhols and other American artists along side others. The cemetery has Grover Cleveland and Aaron Burr ,whose fayher was the president of Princeton. Cute quaint... More

On our first date 26 years ago, my wife and I strolled around Princeton University's exquisite and historic campus before walking into town for dinner. I could not possibly estimate how many times we have done so since, whether alone, with our son, or with other family or friends. We love the campus so much that people often assume one... More

Today I decided to take my readers to a paradise where the most precious treasure is knowledge. Come and explore with me the main library of Princeton University (also called the Firestone Library) - an abode of books. On entering the main library hall, I noticed the inspiring sentence written on a wooden plank. "This hall leading to the endless... More
