I stayed at the Westin 4th of July weekend. Great location, with great restaurants in walking distance, as well as a quick drive to town of Princeton. Comfy beds and rooms. What made teh stay best was the staff. There was a wedding going on with guests that took over the hotel - the hotel staff realized this and made... More

My family and I stayed here one weekend as we were having our floors done in our home. MY 5 y/o kept telling all his classmates he was going on vacation. We thought, we have the Starwoods points, we might as well use them- and besides who doesn't love the Westin? As usual they didnt disappoint. Right from checkin, the... More

This Westin is off the highway near the town/ University of Princeton. It's in a sort of restaurant/medical office park. There are a couple of nicer restaurants right there. It is a typical Westin suburban hotel. Rooms are what you would expect. Unfortunately they do not seem to have suites or larger rooms. Lobby is also what you would expect... More

I stayed at the Westin while on business in Princeton. The hotel is conveniently located in a nice suburban area with a few really good restaurants in walking distance. The lobby is modern and tasteful with plenty of areas to sit and have a conversation with colleagues. The rooms are typical Westin-style with a comfy bed and large work desk.... More

Westin is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurant chains. The Westin in Princeton at Forrestal Village was had a stylish decor, great service, and convenient location. The room was clean and comfortable with a useable refrigerator as a nice convenience. Television is very nice (able to set aspect ratio of avoid stretched-out screens). My room had a French balcony,... More

Attended a conference here and they had us booked for a double bed instead of a king. Nicole at the front desk rectified the situation with a few swipes on the keyboard, no questions no hassle.

I had an end room with a king bed, nice and spacious. They have a green policy which encourages you to skip a day of cleaning and they award you with a $5 coupon you use I gave them a higher mark for that. Average because you expect more from a Westin. So what is good, the breakfast choices are... More

Entirely favorable in every respect. Booked for fiftieth reunion headquarters for college Class of 1958.All attendees pleased with choice. About ten minute drive to town of Princeton. Weekend Shuttle bus service provide to town .Best to confirm availability before booking,so as to avoid expensive parking fees in town.

I had two rooms reserved for my family during a three night stay at Princeton. The staff at this hotel from check-in until check-out was excellent; really among the best I've had at any hotel.

Thanks so much for the great review. I enjoy hearing stories about how one of our associates extended genuine hospitality.

Loved the modern features but housekeeping didn't make it until our 4th attempt. First time with the front desk, second time with the housekeeper, third time with a phone call & 4th time to the manager. This started at 9:30 am & wasn't completed until 9:00 pm. Restaurant had excellent food!
