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

Checked in for 2 nights while my son played in a squash tournament@ Princeton. At one point I found myself stranded after UBER didn't show & cab was delayed. Even though they officially have no shuttle service on the weekend someone @ front desk saw my distress bc I was going to miss the match & agreed to drive me... More

This is my thIrd stay here and previously I had spoken directly to the management regarding the restaurant service and food quality which did not even compare to a three star hotel. I returned hopeful my previous concerns had been addressed only to realize that In fact it did not even match the service at Denny's, in fact Denny's actually... More

We love the Westin Forrestal Village. First off, every single staff member is friendly and welcoming. They really seem like they want you to be happy and will make it happen for you. They could shove me in a broom closet as long as the staff is terrific. I didn't have to worry about that because the room was clean... More

When visiting Princeton, don't overlook this choice. Just outside of town, and with GPS you can find your way in through Kingston, which is one of the nicest ways to enter Princeton. Its main attractions are location, and location. The place is beautifully placed in a country side setting. This allows views from every side the calming vista of trees... More

Drab, dull and poorly maintained, this hotel is not up to Westin standards. The lobby / bar area is ok but has minimal seating and is not particularly comfortable place for a drink with colleagues after work. I don't usually comment on corridors in hotels but these are beige beyond belief. The room was in need of a complete make... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Westin, but it's location was not what I was expecting. Many of the hotels in Princeton are right on or near the main highway, making it simple to get to restaurants/stores. This hotel was off of the main highway, but is situated back further. If you are looking for a more secluded hotel, this... More

Slightly out of the way but everything else makes up for it. Food = amazing. In particular the porridge with the honey glazed banana is out of this world. Comfort = the beds, oh lala, so snuggly, big beds, spacious, big TV, Starbucks coffee in room, clean. Service = Staff should have been more attentive and valued the fact we... More

I had spent one night in this place in December of 2014 and I cannot say that I was happy or otherwise also. Since I was a platinum member of SPG, they had accommodated me in a higher fllor. But apart from that, there were no other benefits attached. The rooms were OK and like in all Westins, the shower... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday. Very quiet because this hotel is definitely more business focused. Nice clean hotel. Smaller rooms but very modern. Clean bathroom and nice shower with waterfall head and good pressure. Great location along route 1 only 5-10 minutes away from downtown Princeton. Staff were friendly.
