Had to attend business meetings at this hotel so I decided it would be best to stay overnight. Lovely woodsy setting. There is valet parking. I used the regular lots so it's a slight bit of a walk. The parking lots are not right adjacent to the building. Once inside, the lobby has a modern, woodsy feel with cathedral ceilings.... More

The hotel complex lies in wooded grounds and is well kept. We were part of a wedding block booking so got a good rate for the room - the regular rate for the room as per the sign on the door is $499, which would be robbery! The room we had was average but adequate and was clean with good... More

Friendly welcome,good check in, nice room ,great bed.enjoyed the pool,fitness room and spa . The only negative is the restaurant . The food is geared for the tavern and the restaurant is not up to par. Other than that everything else is fine.

We organized a family event at "Princeton Marriott at Forrestal". They indulged in unprofessional billing practices. They gave us one final bill. While we were negotiating some charges, they levied extra charges against another inflated bill that was never presented to us. Giving them credit card appears to have authorized them to inflate the bill and charge the credit card... More

Dear Sir, I am sorry that you took so long to bring up this issue. It seems as though this happened in August of 2014. Unfortunately, with so much time passing it is difficult to look into this situation for you. I wish if you felt you were treated unfairly you would have brought it to our attention sooner. If...

My wife and I spent a night at this property a few days ago. Very nice and well maintained Marriott. Sprawling complex is an understatement. Most of the property is single level, so it goes on and on rather than up. Clearly a wedding and banquet destination, given that we were greeted with a wedding party having photos taken in... More

Excellent overnight experience. Great location in Central NJ.,off Rt.1 but back off the road and surrounded by trees. The hotel has a Mt lodge feel to it. There are fireplaces inside and out with several seating areas. The workout room is well equipped and clean. The indoor pool is very large and has a spa feel to the area. There... More

Nice conference hotel nestled in the trees near Princeton. I booked the concierge room and must recommend. Never had service at any class hotel like the concierge room folks gave. Hotel is mainly a single floor layout, adequate workout facilities, plus outdoor jogging. Food in bar was very good. I would stay here again.

I stayed here overnight for work. It's a nice hotel and does have a short running path out the door. Everything seemed clean and staff seemed nice. Shuttle bus will take you to local restaurants. The wifi was free for Marriott members.

Thank you for your review of our Hotel. I'm glad you were able to take advantage of the nice extras that The Princeton Marriott has to offer. You enjoyed a run on the path around the hotel with the wooded scenery, sitting by the fireplace for some relaxation, and a trip into Princeton, with our shuttle driver, for a memorable... More
