I spent a couple of days here recently and I was overall very pleased with the stay. The room was excellent! The decor is quite modern and all was spotlessly clean. The bed was fabulously comfortable; the desk was spacious and ideal for doing any work. The free Wifi was a bonus. I also loved the fact that I could... More

This modern and recently refurbished hotel provides perfectly satisfactory rooms at a reasonable price if you just need to overnight in Princeton (which is lovely, by the way). However, it is five miles out of town so it's really meant for driving - they do provide a shuttle to the station, but only at limited times of the day. Also... More

Hotel was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Had significant trouble accessing Wifi but to the hotel's credit the front desk hooked me up to their tech support and eventually I was able to get online. Not sure if connectivity is a typical issue at this site or not. Arrived around 8 pm and was told the restaurant closed at 9. We... More

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.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the last few years. The location and structure of the hotel is great.
