I stayed in this Westin for three nights to visit my family in Princeton, NJ. Two adjacent rooms (connecting door) with my wife and two teenagers. This Westin is very clean and it has a nice open lobby and bar area, as well as a larger than normal gym and a nice pool area (indoor and outdoor pools). The rooms... More

The cook came back the first night to give us dinner. We came in late. He was done for the evening, but helped us adjust to coming in late from the airport. You remember that when you consider a hotel for the next trip. Nancy and Navin, in particular, made us feel welcome. It was also easy to use cab... More

We could have not been more pleased with our stay here. Due to family illness, we needed to bring the holidays to Princeton. The support of staff was just amazing. We all thought the accommodations were most comfortable and the whole complex very well maintained. The indoor pool is the perfect size and depth for young swimmers, yet long enough... More

We have stayed at the Westin twice, both times booked through Priceline. Our room this past weekend was very comfortable. The best was great, except the pillows were a bit too squishy for our taste. My only other complaint is one of the rooms down the hall had a used room service tray outside the door when we arrived at... More

The Westin Princeton is a great hotel! My wife and I have been going there for years and I actually started staying there in college traveling for sports.

Traveled for business recently and was dismayed at the poor quality of this Westin property. My room was in poor condition: the toilet ran constantly, the electrical outlet was coming out of the wall, the bedside phone didn't work, the bed clothes were stained, and the room smelled strongly of chlorine. The lobby seemed nice, but if my room was... More

I've stayed at this Westin a few times over the past couple of years. In the past, I wouldn't consider it more than a 3 rating, but it's really falling behind. I heard that they were planning some renovations, they are much needed. ROOMS - Only six floors, so not going to have any type of a view. I had... More

The hotel is good for where it is and compared to others in the area, although it is not in the best tier around Princeton, just average. Where it really falls short is within the Westin chain. They are independently owned and run, just part of the franchise (which should generate more customers, higher prices, but on the other side... More
