I was here for 5 nights while my son attended baseball camp nearby. I can't say enough positive things about this Marriott. The most impressive part is the manager (David Sharkey) who really takes customer service to a new level. Every morning David goes to the concierge lounge during breakfast and greets each Gold/Platinum guest. He also asks them if... More

This appears to be a remolded older Marriott conference center property. The room we had was fairly standard, but with a comfortable bed and nice linens. The lobby has a "lodge" feel to it. There are exposed wood beams with high ceilings and there is a comfortable lounge and a large restaurant. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant, where... More

Very efficient hotel, good services, and an ideal wooded setting. A pleasure to stay at this hotel. Loads of parking. Hotel is close to Route 1 entrance and less than 10 minutes from Downtown Princeton, or from Princeton University.

I stay in the Princeton area a few times a year and usually stay at the Westin. Decided to mix it up this time and try another place. So glad I did! The Marriott at Forrestal is very secluded and provided me with the peace and quiet that the Westin just could not. The hotel itself has a funky design... More

I have stayed in several hotels in the Princeton area and this is by far the nicest for the room accommodations, amenities, and the staff! The General Manager is out greetings folks and talking to them alot.

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip with colleagues. Rooms are nice, though not particularly thoroughly cleaned. As I got to my room after check in, I found some hair clips on the bathroom floor, and cobwebs in the lamp shades. The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and helpful.

I truly enjoyed my stay for one night prior to the kickoff to the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games. The staff was very nice and would not mind staying here again when I am in the area again. I might even consider visiting Princeton in the near future! :-)

This Marriott has very nice hotel rooms with clean, modern bathrooms. The fitness center has several cardio machines with built-in tvs and a basket of earbuds - very convenient! Breakfast is good and room service is available. Nice lobby and a friendly staff make this a great place to stay.

My 10-year old and I stayed at this hotel over a portion of the weekend, and we were impressed with the service, cleanliness and room. While room walls are less-than sound-proof, we had a comfortable room following a seemles check-in. I highly recommend this hotel for someone's next stay if they need to be in the Princeton area.

This was an OK place- I can't rate it as poor, because the sleep quality was fine; however, it's a large hotel, and when we stayed there there were a lot of traveling teams, with all the loudness and craziness that entails. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay for the night, this isn't it. The price... More

Jennifer E, Front Office Manager at Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, responded to this review

Good morning, Thank you so much for your feedback! I am truly sorry your stay with us wasn't perfect due to the large traveling familes/teams this weekend. Over the summer we have 2-3 extremely busy sports weekends and this weekend was the first amongst them. We usually are much quieter and would recommend staying with us for a relaxing experience....
