Really nothing out of the ordinary. The room was very large, as was the bed, which was nice. I had a room whose window was facing a wall (more on that below) so it was pretty dark in there and the lighting was not great, but I actually didn't mind that. The bathroom was ok, there was a coffee maker,... More

If you want to stay in the heart of Princeton, the Nassau Inn and the much smaller Peacock Inn are your only choices. The Nassau Inn has the best location of the two, and is a short walking distance to the university and to many shops and restaurants. Nearby shops are a mix of upscale preppy chains like J. Crew,...

Nassau Inn is perfectly located. Many restaurants and stores are within easy walking distance, as well as Princeton University. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was very polite and attentive and they were clearly working as a team.

I spent three days at the Nassau Inn for business. Coming from New Zealand, I was very jet lagged and needed to sleep soundly. I am normally very sensitive to noise. The first morning, a Friday, I was woken by loud mechanical clanging noises that seemed to be coming from somewhere nearby within the building before 7 in the morning.... More

The room was clean and cozy. Good service and satisfying breakfast. The bar has an original Norman Rockwell painting to admire. It's downtown and very close to Princeton University. Great places to eat and walk around.

At first, I couldn't understand the bad reviews on here. The hotel is lovely - welcoming reception staff, nicely appointed and clean rooms, and a very comfy bed. Breakfast on the first day of my stay was poor, but not awful. My server turned his back and walked off whilst taking our tea and coffee order, and seemed more interested... More

Am currently touring the states. Have visited some fantastic hotels. This Isn't one of them. Room was acceptable. Only problem is that the window blinds don't block out all the light. The fitness centre is laughably bad, although they have an arrangement with the local YMCA whereby you can get a day pass to their gym. Extraordinary rude service at... More

Front desk staff is helpful and knowledgable, and Tap Room restaurant is good plus it's a great spot at night for a drink. Rooms and... More

A classic case of a monopoly that is horribly run because it doesn't have to do otherwise. The staff is young and unsupervised -- and apparently untrained is customer service. A thoroughly unpleasant experience.

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
