The hotel looks as it should be nice, it is modern and clean. But the service has a lot to be desired. It took 4 calls to get extra towels. The pool was green, I mean LIME green. It only has a restaurant for breakfast. It is an ok hotel and I would go back. But it is not what... More

Had a wonderful stay. Nancy Naar at the front desk who gave us her personal umbrella to use on a rainy sat. afternoon. People cheery, clean, and helpful. Location worked out for the events we attended. The bed so so comfortable and for the first time loved the pillows!!! Just perfect. Look forward to staying there again.

This hotel has everything you need. Great location, nice atmosphere, positive and engaging staff and terrific rooms. We frequent Westins often but this is one of my favorites! Its welcoming and sophisticated with plenty of areas to relax. Beautiful pool area. Highly recommended.

I tried to call the hotel and was on hold forever so I figured check in would be a mess but it wasn't. In fact it was a very nice experience. Hotel was nice and clean. The latitude lounge had a very good menu and the food was very good but the service was just ok, they seemed pre occupied.... More

Thanks for giving us a very nice rating and mentioning our Lending Gear program. Starwood is known for their innovative ideas on several fronts. Many guests take advantage of this program so they don't need to carry their work out gear with them. Well received and pretty popular. Thanks for the mention and for your Starwood loyalty.

We stayed at the Westin Princeton on a Friday night and had a good stay. Check in was very smooth and the room was what we reserved. After coming back from a dinner party, our room smelled like burning wires and was very warm. One call to the front desk and we were moved to a new room. Turns out... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and we were able to make a quick move due to a faulty motor in your first room. Our staff trains tirelessly to extend genuine hospitality in addition to expeditiously handling any out of the ordinary situations. We look forward to being your host in the near future.

My wife and I stayed in a SPG room on the 6th floor. Over the weekends the lounge on the floor is closed, but the rooms are very nice anyway. The staff is friendly and the maids on the 6th floor were great. The hotel was packed the weekend we were there with 3 weddings going on. The location is... More

I just attended a large event at the hotel, staying overnight. The hotel check in staff was friendly, inviting and helpful. The room was clean and welcoming with lovely linens and pillows. The only complaint in that regard is the need to regrout the tile in the tub/shower. Entry to the hotel to check-in is odd and confusing and can... More

Oh my goodness...how very disappointing. I am so sorry your culinary experience fell short of your expectations. Though we do use outside caterers for specific ethnicities, we often receive very high marks. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the room and our desk staff were friendly. In the event your travels bring you back this way, I will personally... More

Great hotel and I will definitely return when I am back in Princeton. It is a beautiful, classic, and clean hotel with the very comfortable Westin Heavenly beds. There are a few restaurants around this area too that are walking distance. You can also get around the immediate area with the hotel's shuttle service although it's best to schedule your... More
