The Westin was the fourth hotel I stayed in in Princeton over a one week period, and I changed to it at the last minute when a very good rate appeared on their website. I like the Westin brand so always try to stay at a Westin when the price is good. I had passed it a few times commuting... More

My company had a business conference at this hotel, and though I live locally, I stayed overnight in the hotel. I have been to this hotel a number of times due to it's great location; but this is my first time as a hotel guest. Here are my observations: The lobby looked quite nice. Though small, it gave us room... More

What a strange hotel. I was so glad I was only staying one night! That was more than enough. It has been many years since I stayed here, and then it was called something different. It seems to have gone into a strange limbo state since then and the whole place feels in decline. The hotel is going through some... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 days while participating in a professional conference. I had several problems with the hotel as listed below. I knew from the website that the hotel's lobby is being renovated, but I was taken aback to see that the area they have kept open during the renovations is utterly inadequate. There is no lobby...

The staff at the club lounge was very friendly and the food above average for morning and night. The room was clean and nicely furnished, though at the time, renovations were still being completed. Parking is free and ample, check-in was fine. No problems, a good stay overall.

We had a pleasant overnight stay at The Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village. The room was a nice size, very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location was perfect for our needs. A great place to stay for a weekend getaway at a fair price.

I stay at this property all the time. My company, Ernst and Young, books a lot of rooms at this hotel. Back in '07, the front desk staff seemed very oblivious and rude. I has a lot of problems with the staff (they never treated me well or recognized my platinum status.) I think it was June of '07 when... More

I would like to share an incident that occurred on August 16, 2008 Saturday at the Westin Forrestal Village at 201 Village Blvd. Princeton New Jersey 08540. It happened at the poolside where 2 employees of the hotel, a certain Ms. Bennett and Mr. Thompson approached our group and disrespected us and other members of our party. At about 6:00... More

Got our room on Hotwire $89/night. Even though this was listed as a 4 star, I was concerned about some of the reviews were less then favorable. It was just fine for the price, no bells or whistles. Internet access was $9.95, 12noon - 12 noon each day. No breakfast, but small bottled water was available in the lobby. Hot... More

We stayed at this hotel one night since we made a day out of Princeton. It's close to a lot of restaurants and shops, which is nice. It IS a bit confusing trying to figure out how to get to it, though. Check-in was ok....however, we were given a room that was already being occupied!! The guy in the room... More
