Stayed here in July 2015 for a 2 day business trip to the Princeton area. The hotel is right off an expressway, somewhere between business district and princeton campus. Compared to the other Westins I've stayed at in the US, I would say this is considered above average. Things I enjoyed: - Rooms are clean and fairly modern although the... More

Love this place. It always has consistent service, great staff, and very much reliable accommodations. I have stayed at this property more than I can count, and can't remember a single bad experience. There is also a nice outdoor space, including basketball and tennis.

Serviceable hotel. Probably a hair below usual Westin standards. A few maintenance issues (bathtub drain didn't work, a few cosmetic flaws) but comfortable beds and front desk staff was very friendly. We were here to look at the school and I was surprised at how far (3-4 mi) away it was. The hotel is away from the college-like atmosphere. And... More

Despite the Forrestal Village locale pretty much deserted (it used to be a bustling shopping development), the Westin was busy with weddings and tourists to the Princeton area. Felt like there was a conscious effort to make sure that things were working smoothly (I know the property has had a few negative reviews over the years). Check in was easy... More

This is a Westin hotel by name only. The lobby looks nice, but that is it. The whole place needs a massive makeover. The rugs are stained, wallpaper falling off. Our rooms were not clean. The duvets were all stained and even the sheets had odd stains. The TV remote was sticky, body hair in bathroom, a child's toy on... More

In town for a youth soccer tournament. Was pleased with the hotel and room. However, we found that this hotel was quite rigid in regards to their patio rules. Many families were confronted by staff when they attempted to eat food (like pizza) from outside the hotel in the patio area. As the hotel seemed to be dominated by a... More

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, it is our policy not to allow outside food in the serving area directly across from the latitude lounge. Anything beyond that point is fine with us. I'm glad you and your group had a relaxing stay with us. See you soon!!! More

Unfortunately people at the front desk are very unfriendly and unhelpful. They tried to do nothing to amend their wrongs. First, although we have booked a room with breakfast on the executive floor we were told that it wasn't so. Once we presented our printed confirmation with all the details, first they still denied until the manager accepted that we... More

The Westin at Forrestal Village is a good hotel with good amenities and free parking and internet. The location is only major drawback as there isn't really anything interesting nearby. But with car. Princeton is only 15 minutes away. The hotel is used for Proms and weddings. But we did not experience any noise or inconvenience except a fairly full... More
