I choose this hotel because it's close to our offices and should be a pretty high standard where I can treat myself a bit just for the holidays after a tiresome 2 weeks coming in from California. I felt the hotel is a bit on the tired side and way over priced. Room is ok, no large window on the... More

An iconic hotel in a beautiful town, all decked out for Christmas - so why did I spend 3 days there feeling angry? $400 per night buys a pretty neat hotel experience in most parts of the world, not least in provincial university towns, but not at the Nassau. First problem - we included breakfast in our package and were... More

In the middle of "under discovered" Princeton is a little gem known as the Nassua Inn. Central to this quaint yet classy Ivy league town sits this Inn with old school charm. I only live 45 mins from Princeton and I fell in love with Palmer Square and the Nassua Inn. Can't wait to plan my next trip!

My friends and I get together every year for a holiday dinner/experience. This year we decided to give Princeton a try .... And choose the Nassau Inn to stay over night since it's right in the heart of town ! Check in was super easy ! The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the lobby was buzzing with...

Nestled at the heart of Princeton, New Jersey, location is probably the only component that the Nassau Inn has going for it. It is located right on Palmer Square, close to many stores and restaurants. Most importantly, however, it is immediately across the street from Princeton University. Anyone staying in Princeton whose primary intention is to visit the university is... More

The Nassau is a nice local hotel. Rooms are well finished to a high quality, in a style which is in keeping with the local area. Location is excellent with several good restaurants nearby. Service is good, nothing outstanding, the usual standards you would expect. Being a locally run and managed hotel, this gave me a nice break from the... More

The Nassau Inn is ideally located in the center of Princeton. My bedroom was clean, comfortable, with a large flat-screen TV, and the bathroom was perfectly functional with all the amenities you need. But the heating/cooling system, though effective, is also extremely loud, and you need earplugs if you want to keep it going during the night. There is construction... More

The Nassau Inn is wonderfully located for a visit to Princeton University - just a block away - or a stroll through downtown Princeton. The Inn is old - apparently George Washington visited at one point - and has been extensively enlarged and remodeled over the years, now providing all the expected amenities (although I sure wish they had added...

I stayed in the Nassau Inn for a week on a business trip and had nothing to complain about. The staff are nice and eager to help, rooms are clean, don't smell und well maintained. The bed is firm and very comfortable. Also the Yankee Doodle Tap Room is great to have dinner or a drink at night. Alternatively there... More
