The room was spacious and like many average chains, OK but could be better in many ways. Reasonably comfortable bed. One distinctly unsatisfactory thing is that you can't open the windows and get any fresh air. Consequently you are forced to suffer using the air con. Never felt there was any fresh air at all. Breakfast is very average. We... More

A brief overnight stay while visiting Princeton University with our daughter. The property is well maintained and the rooms are adequate but over priced when compared to similar properties close by. Staff are not nearly as professional and/or well trained as you may find in other HI properties. They struggled with simple requests. Breakfast should have been complimentary, but was... More

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Princeton with my son's sports team. When we arrived, we were greeted by a lovely front desk staff.

We were hosting a large family group from various out-of-town locales for the multi-day Princeton U graduation.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the last few years. The location and structure of the hotel is great. I'm not sure if this hotel fired all of their previous employees, but the new staff needs to be trained in customer service, and they need to be more knowledgeable about what they can or can not...

I stayed at this hotel for one night for a business trip. The hotel is fine: OK beds, quiet rooms, generally clean, running water, etc. It's a normal hotel: nothing fancy, nothing glaringly bad.

This hotel is located in a very peaceful area, has nice rooms, good food and great guest care services. Two drawbacks: 1. In case you like walking, there's no way to get to city streets as it's on a loop with freeway on either end of the loop. 2. The other sore point is that lunch is not available in... More
