When you view this property from the road and even as you pull up, it looks promising. The front desk staff is personable and responsive. Walking down the hallway to our room, we counted no less than a half dozen room service trays in the hallway. Located on the corner of the sixth floor (we were assured that it would... More

We asked to change our room after check in to have a better view and a staff member came up to us with a new set of keys. Very clean, nice neighborhood, great breakfast and pool, gym facilities, etc. Second time here for business and will come back again.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend for an anniversary getaway. Location in forrestal village is a nice touch but there really isn't much to see at forrestal village. We did have a casual dinner at Salt Creek Grille which is ok but was overpriced for what you get, and celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Ruth Chris... More

The Westin is a hotel we often use for business travel. In this case, we wouldn't return. After pre-paying for a Deluxe Room, we were told upon check in were told initially there was no distinction between Traditional King and Deluxe King. After we pulled up our reservation, a supervisor confirmed that there was indeed a difference - well at... More

My apologies we fell short of your expectations. We train tirelessly to insure every aspect of your stay is perfect. I am not quite clear on why there was confusion regarding your deluxe room. There are a number of these rooms that provide additional space and have a great view. We do serve dinner every night of the week in... More

Again my wife and I ate at your hotel and again Neven the bartender was great. He is really a very nice man who takes pride in his job. Whenever we're in Princeton we will stop for dinner. We will be back within the next month we may make reservations at the Westin.

Clean modern lobby is welcoming after a long day of business travel. The hotel check in staff was extremely courteous and professional. The price seems standard for a Westin, but a bit high for the area. Nice option for future visits.

Stayed here on a visit to Princeton. The price was relatively cheap for a Westin. The location is terrific - it's right next to a shopping mall called Forrestal Village, and it's a really short drive into the town of Princeton. The room is standard Westin - luxurious, specious, and clean, and the interior design is both elegant and modern... More

One does not expect good views or excellent service at a hotel on the expressway interchange in a place like Princeton NJ. I checked into this hotel very early, due to train schedules, and had a room filled with sunlight, a lovely view, comfortable bed and assisted by very gracious and welcoming staff. I will definitely return to this hotel... More
