We stayed at the Nassau Inn for a wedding we were attending. After checking in at 1 am and dragging our suit cases from the parking garage down the street, my wife, 4 year old daughter and myself were ready to climb into bed. While getting ready for bed with my wife discovered that the bathroom was dirty! The toilet... More

I recently stayed at the Nassau in @ Princeton for 2 nights. The location is great, close to restaurants and shopping. The Inn itself is nice, probably a little overdue for sprucing up, but not a complete show-stopper. The airconditioning system was very loud in my room. The only big downer was the parking. I would expect valet parking, not... More

Historic hotels, with their quirks and patina, aren't for everyone. If you want predictabilty and uniformity, drive a few miles down highway 1, near the strip malls. Those hotels will be exactly like their counterparts in Everytown, USA, which some people do prefer. If you want the Princeton experience, try the Nassau Inn. We -- hubby, teen daughter and I...

I really wanted to fall in love with this place due to its location and its historical significance. But I am afraid the hotel is resting on its long ago earned reputation and the convenience of its physical location to Princeton and the local shopping scene. In short, the hotel is due for renovation or at minimum a major facelift.... More

I truly believe all the negative reviews are completely unfair. We hosted our wedding weekend at the Nassau Inn, and it was absolutely fantastic! The location in the center of town is unbeatable, and the staff consistently went out of their way to make it a smooth and memorable weekend. Our guests all had great things to say about the... More

The location great but other than there nothing to write home about..The tarrif is so huge that you think when you book that you are going to stay in a fantastic place..But i warn you that this is perhaps one of the smallest rooms you ever stay in New Jersey..There no basic aminities here..They live on the location and the...

I hadn't visited Princeton in almost twenty years and decided to stay at the Nassau Inn given the convenient location. Unfortunately, this place has not had the slightest upgrade since I stayed here with my parents all those years ago. When paying premium prices, one expects a premium product, and frankly, I've had much better stays at a Comfort Inn.... More

The hotel is located right in the center of town 1 block from 2 parking garages. The Palmer Square garage also has charging facilities for an electric car. The front desk check in was very fast and friendly. The room was very clean, comfortable and roomy. The old pictures of Princeton give it excellent charm. Room service was prompt and... More

This hotel, located in Palmer Square, screams PRINCETON. It is is in the center of downtown a block or two from the main entrance to the University. Although not luxurious and a bit dated, the rooms have charm and exude Princeton history from every angle. Aside from the great location, the real reason you want to stay here is the... More

We read some of the reviews of this place and were leery of staying at the Nassau Inn for a wedding. Complaints about pkg are unfounded as it is a city environment and one should not expect pkg at the door... however, a parking garage was just a half a block away. Front desk staff were friendly, helpful, and polite.... More
