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

Located in Forrestal Village directly off the College Road Exit on US 1 and just a few minutes north of Princeton, this hotel is easy to get to and nicely situated for anyone visiting Princeton or any of the many companies located nearby. Nearby (walking distance) are good dining opportunities (Salt Creek Grill) and spa/gym facilities.

Stayed her for a night before a day at Six Flags, NJ. About 20 min drive from hotel to Six Flags. Check in was nice and easy-Great staff. Room was comfortable and well appointed. very clean. Breakfast options I found quite expensive ($5.00 for a muffin) so we ate something quick on the ride. I think my only complaint, after... More

The hotel and staff are the friendliest. The elevators worked extremely fast. The food was upscale. Everywhere we went and every room we visited was clean and fresh. The whole experience was spectacular. We will be frequenting this hotel again. Love the interactions with the GM. Mr. Dalton!

It's my first time staying at the Westin and I could say that my stay was very good overall. The staff were very nice, the bed and pillows are the best. The room is a little bit smaller but it's not something I won't get over with. Hotel location is very nice. I love the place all in all. Thanks... More

Thank you for your great review and for mentioning the heavenly beds. There's a reason they are named the best bed in our industry year after year.

I'm a regular Westin guest, and have stayed at this property on a few occasions. Our most recent experience was one of our worst hotel experiences. The property was overtaken by a very large group, which overwhelmed the staff. Housekeeping was not up to par. The pool area was dirty and short of towels. Wait time to check in was... More

I have stayed at this particular Westin on several occasions and have had noise issues just about every single time. Listen, I understand that the hotel only has so much control over their guests and can't be everywhere at every point in the night, but I have been awoken more times than not in the middle of the night from...

We booked an Executive Guest room, for four, which advertised complimentary "grab and go"continental breakfast for guests. Upon arrival we were advised there was no "grab and go" on the weekends and had to sit in the restaurant and order complimentary continental breakfast. We were traveling for an event on Saturday and Sunday morning, and were not planning to have... More

Thanks so much for your review and my apologies we fell short of both yours and my expectations at the Westin. Honestly, I am somewhat puzzled, in that the items you mention our part of our every day processes at the hotel. Weekend guests often enjoy a continental breakfast in Parellel 40 and or have the option of taking it... More

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
