I just attended a large event at the hotel, staying overnight. The hotel check in staff was friendly, inviting and helpful. The room was clean and welcoming with lovely linens and pillows. The only complaint in that regard is the need to regrout the tile in the tub/shower. Entry to the hotel to check-in is odd and confusing and can... More

Great hotel and I will definitely return when I am back in Princeton. It is a beautiful, classic, and clean hotel with the very comfortable Westin Heavenly beds. There are a few restaurants around this area too that are walking distance. You can also get around the immediate area with the hotel's shuttle service although it's best to schedule your... More

We stayed here for a weekend because it was near an event we were attending on Saturday night. From checkin to checkout the experience was very positive. At checkin the specialist paid attention to me, (and there were others to cater to the other individuals checking in). I had several questions and concerns and they were answered om a timely... More

Nancy at the front desk was very accommodating. Even though I am a Marriott Rewards Member she still was very friendly, lol. She was great at telling me about all the amenities at this beautiful hotel and even switched my room closer to the elevator after a long night of travel. It's definitely about the people who make or break... More

We stayed here for a wedding. Great sized rooms, rainfall shower head, large banquet areas, great gym and pool. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Can't say enough as it made a big group feel welcome and unique even though many functions going on at once.

The beds are comfortable and the rates were reasonable. The hotel is located a short and easy drive from Princeton University, which was our destination, so it was very convenient. The room was a bit small, but the common areas were pleasant and the free parking was helpful.

The common areas are bright and airy and helps carry out the theme of relaxation so be sure to come back often. We look forward to being a host in the near future.

We stayed here using Priceline while visiting Princeton for a Friday-Saturday family celebration. I don't know what the price of the room would have otherwise been, through Priceline I felt like we got a good deal. The hotel is just off Route 1 in a new development with shopping attached. To reach the university is a 10 minute easy drive.... More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at the Westin Princeton. That being said, there were several issues that came up. The hotel was easy to find and located in a nice "village" although there wasn't much to see. Free parking was a plus. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful and upgraded us upon arrival to a deluxe room. Not... More
