ragatta time and we were booked at this hotel. Beds were a little soft but very clean rooms at a cheep rate. A suite for $129. that is a very good deal. living room and small kitchen leads to a bedroom and bath. 3 minutes to Princeton campus.

Our family stayed at the hotel last week. At around 8:30 am, we went downstairs for breakfast and when we returned to our room, our MAC laptop and Bose headphones were missing. After initially denying any responsibility, housekeeping finally claimed that they had taken the laptop but not the headphones. They returned the laptop which was wrapped in a bag.... More

We were back in Princeton this Friday night, just two weeks since our last visit. We made the 5 hour trip from home to watch our youngest run in an evening track meet at Princeton. Disappointed by the $135 a night motel feel of the Hilton we stayed at during our first trip (rated #3) we took our chances on... More

Lobby and hallways could be cleaner. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Location is excellent. Had a good night sleep. Accommodated late checkout. Upgraded the room for me as a Gold member. Breakfast menu, service and quality was excellent.

My mother passed away around midnight at a local hospital and we were extremely tired and upset upon arrival. The young lady who helped us check-in very late that evening expressed her sincerest condolences, gave us extra cookies (as we had no dinner). She also gave us 2 bottles of water. This small act of kindness went a long way... More

Reservation clerks do not pay attention to detail and mix peoples information together including cc information. The location is nice and the bar area is spacious. the pool has a nice setting and there is an outdoor area that could be used for grilling.. the gym is not too big, but you can get a nice workout in. The food... More

The hotel is a little tired. Stayed here a couple of times when it was another group 6 or 7 years ago. The flaws in wear and tear are ok for a quick in and out mainly because the staff is so accommodating and helpful as you would expect in a better property. The wait staff in the restaurant is...

Two nights in a row I had to listen to an unbelievable annoying techno beat from a party of inconsiderate loosers. I was on the 4th floor and that nonstop beat kept me up all night. The party was on the first floor. They went on until after 2am. Is this a night club or a hotel. I can't believe... More

For several months, I traveled in and out of Princeton while working on a project. Our company had a corporate rate with this hotel and it was close to the office. I always found the front desk helpful, the breakfast nice, and the food at dinner hit the spot. Yes, the hotel is in need of some updating, but what... More

Room was large and comfortable. Bathroom was tight and cramped--and the bathtub tile was in sore need of bleach for mold control. Breakfast mediocre. Great location, however, and a great use of Hilton points.
