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.

I stayed here for six months of travel about 5 years ago, and just returned recently to find that it was still as great as usual. Sure, staff turnover, but as far as service, they could have been clones. Nothing is missing here (though they do charge for Valet parking now, and self-park can be a bummer in the winter... More

My husband and I booked a package which included tickets for the Outdoor sculpture museum, buffet breakfast and an overnight stay. We had a wonderful mini vacation, and the hotel was perfect. We used the indoor pool and hot tub after our excursion to the museum, and found it the perfect temperature and very clean. The outdoor patio by the... More

The rooms are small...the chair in the room was the most uncomfortable chair ever. The bathroom is very small and not conveniently set up. Instead of having a picture over the commode, I would have preferred a towel rack so I did not have to get out of the shower wet to reach the towels. There is a small "kitchen"... More

Thank you for your review of the Princeton Marriott. I am glad you enjoyed your choice for lunch at Barley's Pub. The homemade potato chips with the dip are really good and a nice side to the turkey club sandwich you ordered. We actually have two walking paths one that follows the road and one that goes through the woods... More

I stayed at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal at the recommendation of a business colleague and from a recollection of a stay a few years ago. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Minor downsides were that the wifi was not free and the room was a long hike from the front desk. The room was very clean, quiet, and... More

Booked this trip with my young teenage daughter who is in a choral group. It's only about an hour from home for us, but thought it would be a special treat. It was. The spa was a delight.

I recently stayed here on a business trip and overall I would say this is a pretty average property. It was standard Marriott execpt for the public areas which have a sort of ski lodge feel with lot's of wood and a very open look. My room was clean and nothing to complain about which is what I've come to... More
