Stayed here for 2 nights during the snow storm that wasn't. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, room was clean and spacious and food was great. I stayed here last year for 1 night and had the same experience, will stay here again whenever necessary for work and highly recommend!

This is probably one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed in for some time. Very clean, pleasant staff, nice, large and sanitary room with all amenities working. Far enough from Route #1 that road noise is not a problem. Bed was comfortable, not so firm as many tend to be, soft enough to work with your shape. The... More

Spent my New Year's Eve at this hotel, which hosted a group event that included dancing. The room was spacious, spotless, and sophisticated. It was clear that the hotel had undergone a recent "re-do" and renovations were well done. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, though there could have been more (and quicker) bartenders working the event. My room... More

Stated there for a week in summer. The pool is very pleasant on hot days. The hotel is in a depressing zone outside of the town of Princeton. Fortunately there is a shuttle which can bring you in town in the morning and back in the evening (before 8pm). The shuttle driver, Michael is very nice! Yet, the shuttle runs... More

Very cost effective hotel close to the University and national labs, large room, useful shuttle that works. Paid for breakfast but should have gone elsewhere, bacon looked days old. Good bar and friendly staff.

Everything you expect in a Holiday Inn facility was present and accounted for. We came late in the evening driving directly from JFK. Parking is free and easy, close to the lobby entrance. Slept well, left early in the morning. Everything was functional, clean and orderly. Nothing more to say.

This hotel has a Princeton zip code but is actually in South Brunswick Township. Nonetheless, it's very easy to get to downtown Princeton via Ridge Rd. to Kingston and Rt. 27 or Rt. 1 south to Harrison Street (avoid busy Washington Rd.). Like other IHG properties in this area, this place lies in a serene, wooded office park. Though sited... More
