excellent location, large/clean room, extremely comfortable beds/linens, nice breakfast buffet and friendly staff. We didn't visit the pool or jacuzzi so I can't comment on that. Plenty of parking. Plenty of room inside the room. Paul Mitchell hair products are a nice treat

We have stayed here for years. It is a great location. Quiet space and close to a ton of shopping. The only reason this did not get five stars was the hot tub was not functioning correctly and the pool bottoms were somewhat dirty. Not horrible but not 5 stars. Overall a solid stay. We will be back.

I stayed at the hotel on business. I have zero complaints about anything at the hotel other than their Service Dog Policy. The management had no problems with the dog staying at the hotel, BUT they refused to accept her as anything other than a pet, and required me to pay the pet rate. The management needs to acknowledge that…according... More

Not a super fancy hotel, but it was perfect for us. My daughter had a blast on her first family vacation outside of visiting family.The hotel is close to shopping and the main highways. Clean and friendly staff. If visiting Sesame Place, I TOTALLY recommend staying here!

This is a fine hotel with clean rooms, professional, helpful staff and an above average breakfast... for this type of facility. It is well located with a major advantage that you can get to Princeton University without having to navigate Rt. 1. The layout is typical of other Residence Inns with a small living room/kitchenette area and a separate bedroom... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn at Carnegie Center on a recent trip to Princeton. We've stayed here before on previous visits and have recommended the Residence Inn to visiting friends and family. Our accomodations were excellent! We were upgraded to a two bedroom, two bath suite. Our rooms were spacious, comfortable, quiet and clean. The Residence Inn is conveniently... More

We just completed a east coast college tour, and we have stayed in many Residence Inn properties. This one, I have to say, is the best, and deserves a 5 star. This property is of full service Marriott quality, except you get free wifi, free breakfasts! Property is new, well maintained. Services, from front desk staff, to cleaning staff, to... More

We were excited with the location to Princeton University and the ability to save money by eating in. The kitchen had a refrigerator, stove, microwave, etc. but limited pans and nothing for the oven to cook with. The unit was good size and the on-site breakfast was decent. They do offer some weeknight fare as well. The Big complaint was... More

We just stayed at the Carnegie Center Residence Inn to attend our son's graduation from Princeton. I think we passed another Residence Inn and a Springfield Inn on the way from the airport but, the Carnegie Center is by far the closest one and perfect for an activity at the University. In the past, when staying at a Residence Inn,... More
