We have stayed here several times as our son attends Princeton, which is just a 5 minute drive away. Setting aside the special rate that they allow for Princeton families, the property is spotless and comfortable, every bit up to the Westin chain's reputation. The staff is polite and always smiling and accomodating. We have not really tried the restaurant... More

The pleasant and attentive staff at the Westin Princeton were a highlight of my 3-night stay at the Westin Princeton.

If you'd ever like to host a corporate event, you'd be hard pressed to find a more charming and helpful staff. The stresses of hosting any event are eased by the staff of the Westin, specifically Lauren, Nancy, Dave and Bert. Highly recommend this venue!

We arrived very late and Kamran quickly got us into some great rooms. The next day, he efficiently printed out information we needed for the area restaurants. He was able to reinstate my SPG card AND he helped us with several other needs. Kamran is exemplary and deserves high praise.
