We primarily chose this hotel due to our like of the Hilton Family of Hotels and because the other Hilton hotels in the area did not accept pets and we were travelling with our pet cat. However, we also love the amenities of the in - room refrigerator, complimentary breakfast, complimentary internet access, and food / snacks / drinks in... More

The hotel and its manager are terrific but the policy in effect when you advance purchase stinks. I booked ahead at $143. only to find out the wedding party paid $109. I am an HHonors member and asked they credit the difference which they couldn't because I went thru advance pay. When I called advance pay they said they couldn't... More

Hampton Inns have become the hotel of choice for us as they are always very clean and have friendly helpful staff. The food at the complimentary breakfasts is predictable, but hot and plentiful. We haven't tried their dinners.

Scott F, General Manager at Hampton Inn Princeton, responded to this review

Thanks for the nice review and kind words. Hampton Inn is, of course, a "predictable" brand (in a good way as you note). Although we cannot alter the breakfast offering in any way (thus predictable), we are glad that you found it to serve your needs. As for our DINNER (with Heineken, Wine, and soda), that is where we go... More

We've been on a long trip covering a lot of miles. The last stop of our trip before going home, was here. Our son has been visiting colleges and the Princeton University was his last one. We booked a couple of rooms here for a few days due to the fact it was rated #1 in the area. We can... More

The hotel staff was soooo nice to me & my kids! They did everything possible to ensure that we are all comfortable & happy on their property. They gave us snacks while we were waiting for our car ride to pick us up! Amazing. Besides, the room was huge & very comfortable. Big beds, refrigerator.... etc

Thank you for staying with us on your trip to Princeton. Our guests are a part of our "extended family" and my housekeeping team supports their own families by taking care of yours. When you are happy and comfortable then you tell more people about us (like in this review) and then more guests want to come here so we... More

It's a 4 out of 5 because it achieves all its initiatives, but we're not talking The Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton here, so in good conscience, I couldn't give it a 5 of 5. HOWEVER, the Hampton Inn Princeton was EXCELLENT! Go without concern and have high expectations because they didn't miss. The room was up to date, clean... More

My family and I stayed only for one night. I woke in the morning and wanted to go for a run in Princeton. I discovered that you really need to be driven there due to the inaccessible roads and the far distance. The staff was nice enough to drive me over when I needed the ride. The rooms were clean...

Princeton is certainly a "suburban" area with traffic challenges for those looking to do some running. With 2 full-time shuttle drivers, we have the best staff equipped to help our guests with unique requests such as yours. Whether you need a quick ride (and back) to somewhere that you can run -- OR -- transportation to/from work -- OR --... More

This was my second stay at this Hampton Inn. Staff is courteous. Rooms are modernized. Loved the extra outlets near the bed to plug in phone, etc... Heater was not modernized, so was running almost all night and loud as it was a very cold one! But the beds are super comfortable. Standard Hampton Inn breakfast. Will stay again.

After reading the reviews, I expected a nice, clean hotel. Although the staff was friendly and they offered food and beverages, this hotel is dirty and run down. Our room smelled moldy. Some sites give it 2 1/2 stars, which is a generous ranking.

At the Hampton Inn - Princeton we clearly strive to take great care of every guest on every visit. We've been rated #1 in Princeton for years among some great hotels such as Marriotts, Hyatts, and even other Hiltons. Your completely vague, anonymous review makes it impossible to reach out to you. Please contact me with specifics so we can... More
