Was there for a small meeting. Rooms were good - roomy and clean. Internet was free (at least on the "Preferred Guest" floor where I stayed). Concierge lounge was a joke - just a modest selection of cold food laid out, nothing like others where there really is a concierge, and a nice buffet. Biggest issue was lack of and... More

A nice hotel. On route 1, but located in a small shopping center so you have access to some restaurants and shops, and right next to gymboree if you have kids. Flexible pet policy. Decent food. Great indoor/outdoor pool. Good service.

The moment we drove in from Martha's Vineyard, I was excited about the hotel and the property surrounding the area. Safe, quiet, well-groomed and ample area for shopping and dining. The staff checking me in was kind and efficient. The room was outstanding and the bed was amazing. We walked thirty seconds to an excellent eatery and we finished the... More

I typically do not write bad reviews, however my recent stay at he westin was very dissapointing. I had high hopes, had booked my room in advance, and called in advance to my staying to ensure that the room I wanted was available.

I choose to stay at this hotel every time I come to Princeton on business. The check in is quick and efficient, the room is always remarkably clean.

During my recent stay at the Westin in Princeton, I was really happy to see all the renovations except for 1....The Club Level Lounge.

I gave this hotel a glowing review on January 24 2011. Unfortuantely I experienced the same as "horrible horrible horrible" - everything stated was true and not exaggerated. I have sympathies for the hotel management - these guests were terrible and hard for the hotel to handle. My problem is with the hotel's slow reponse to our subsequent complaints. There... More
