Disappointed to the extent that a scheduled two week stay was shortened to one week. A/C is very noisy when the compressor goes on. Utensils in efficiency kitchen are old and long used. Morning breakfast buffet station is small and tight, about the size of a large walk-in closet. Great chocolate muffins! Staff not overtly friendly. How about raising salaries... More

I stay in many Residence Inns because I like the spacious accommodations, the convenient full kitchen and the 2-bedroom suite layout. This particular Residence Inn is maintained better than some others and isn't afraid to spend money for the convenience of guests. The bath towels seemed newer and thicker than usual; housekeeping was more meticulous than usual (perfect, in fact);... More

I had occasion, once again, to be in the Princeton area (I lived there some time ago and now return at least once a year to visit friends and family) and stayed at the Residence Inn at Carnegie Center. This was my third - maybe fourth - time at this hotel. The fact that I have returned on multiple occasions... More

We had a studio room, it was clean and spacious. We loved the free internet too. We stayed 2 nights and will definitely be back, felt... More

Nice lobby and dining area. Great breakfast (free). Nice room floor layout with master bedroom and bath in loft. Great for extended stayers. Rooms in need of updating. Clean but warn. Centrally located which is great because the traffic in area is ridiculously heavy.

Stayed here for 2 nights while in town for a family event. It's easy to find and conveniently located. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Buffet style breakfast is of a standard you'd expect. Staff are friendly, polite and happy to help. I didn't use the gym or pool but they looked great... More

Quiet, Clean room, comfy beds, great staff and real eggs and sausage plus other healthy breakfast choices. One of the best Marriott properties I have ever stayed at!!! Nice linens for sofa bed. Just be careful if you take a hot shower and open The bathroom door, the smoke alarm goes off!

Return visit to this Residence Inn. New room design -- clean -- great staff. Front desk staff was very helpful. Easy location for all the Princeton University and Princeton town activities. Close walk to the adjacent Mall and restaurants. Pricing varies -- but a good value this stay When again in Princeton will stay at this property.
