My wife and I stayed here while house hunting in the Princeton area. As you can imagine, this was a stressful time for us. We decided to descend upon the hotel lounge for a couple relaxing drinks to unwind from the busy week. Navin greeted us warmly and showed us the best hospitality we have experienced in a long time.... More

I know how stressful it can be house hunting as I am currently moving to the area as well, I agree it is nice to settle down after a stressful day. I will personally share your comments with Navine. I hope to have the chance to meet you personally on your next visit with us. Todd Capizzo General Manger More

The Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village is probably the CLEANEST and NICEST hotel I've ever stayed at! The modern decor is beautiful and chic! It's an EXCELLENT place for events! The restaurant is incredible! It's even dog-friendly (but you'd never know there are dogs on the premises). I never saw one except for the time it was in a wedding.... More

I had a bit of a mis-hap occur during my stay at the Westin (with booking, and room assignment). however, both Nancy and Josh who work at the front desk made sure to compensate me well, and took very good care of me during my stay. Nancy helped me rearrange my room, and Josh personally brought me chocolate covered strawberries... More

I come to Princeton very often for business- this is the hotel that consistently delivers. Well appointed rooms and nice staff. You get an advantage staying here bc good restaurants are within Forrstal Village- walking distance.

I only had to stay for one night, being there for a conference, so I didn't expect much, but it truly exceeded my expectations. Initially, when I learned the conference would be in Princeton, my first thought was "why?". I quickly discovered that this hotel is well located and easy to get to. The lobby is modern and chic, with... More

The hotel is very good. Room size is adequate. Lots of electric outlets in the room. Room has mini fridge, complimentary water bottle and nice bed. Easy access from Route 1. Location is very good with three restaurants in walking distance: Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Salt Water Grille, Tre Piani Italian Mediterranean restaurant. Hotel also has a restaurant.

We only stayed one night. The hotel was clean and the room was well equipped. When we asked about the shuttle to Princeton we were told that it was booked already and would not be available that night. The hotel is quite far from the main campus.

We stayed here for one night. Room was a nice size with king bed. Free wireless internet was a pleasant surprise and worked well. Shower had great pressure and hot water was instant. Convenient location off route 1 and a close walk to shopping and restaurants. Starbucks coffee in room and available in lobby. Would definitely stay again.

Was here for one night. Staff was very nice and welcoming, hotel was clean and the location was good. I had both lunch and dinner here and while my tomato soup was cold and way to thick the pork-chop and Greek salad were great! The rooms are showing wear and tear and while the location is pretty good all the... More
