I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip in early April. I was located in the "new wing" (Room 560) and my room was clean & spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had lots of counter space to spread out. The hotel itself has a lot of history and that is carried through in the... More

The Nassau Inn is located in Palmer Square, right across from the gates of Princeton University. Very nice people at the front desk. The building is understandably old but kept in good condition. From a luxury perspective it's middle of the road but very convenient if you want to be in town or near the college. The bar is old... More

The Nassau Inn is in the middle of Palmer Square surrounded by lots of restaurants and shopping. As a historic hotel, the ambiance is dark and heavy. The rooms are clean. I would stay again because of the location.

This hotel is perfectly located to explore Princeton University as well as the town. The staff was friendly and we were excited to stay in this unique hotel. Unfortunately our room was situated next to a HVAC system that went off & on all night and the room also smelled just slightly musty; I'm sure they would have switched us... More

Stayed at this hotel on 4/4/2015. I found the staff to be rude and very unfriendly. While the hotel itself was very quaint it wasn't worth the disrespect and rudeness of the staff including Christine Roc (not sure of the spelling). The night desk clerk actually threw my paperwork at me across the front desk. I would not recommend staying... More

Staff quite helpful - rooms good size - shame windows aren't clean. Lobby somewhat old fashioned and breakfast area dark but location is great. Would stay there next time though. Shame wi-if isn't free in the bedroom.

We arrived late and the staff was very kind. The room was great, too. The hotel was easy to find and it was very quiet. We would come back to this hotel. Not much more to say, as they want me to fill up the characters.

The hotel is at a walking distance from Princeton University. It is a great location to visit the university. It is close to restaurants and to an art cinema. If you have time check the movies. The room was nice and clean. The only thing I didnt like were the blindes. I would prefer a curtain to block the light.... More

The best aspect of this hotel is the convenience of being within walking distance to the Princeton campus and the train station. The hotel itself is fine--staid but comfortable. Beds were very comfy. Our room happened to have restaurant odors emenating from somewhere below (pizza perhaps?), but was not too bad. We would stay here again for the location.

My husband and I were staying overnight for a friend's special occasion and the Nassau Inn was just the ticket. The style is traditional, almost like a New England hotel. The room was cozy and comfortable with a huge TV; the bathroom was nice. The staff were helpful and accommodating. My only complaint? They close the front door at 7pm... More
