This is a full conference center Marriott featuring a lodge-like setting. The site is both wooded and quiet. The rooms are typical Marriott, well appointed with very nice bedding and brand new oversized down pillows. The comforter is down but a bit warm for the summer (use the blanket in the closet instead). Great towels, mediocre room service menu, but... More

We have been coming to this hotel since our son, who is now 32, was a small child. At that time it was not a Marriott, but belonged to a Danish corporation. As stated it is in a great wooded area with lots of opportunities for exercise. We didn't take advantage of them this time, just lazed around on the... More

This hotel is in a wooded quiet area which is very nice. Plenty of parking. Easy to get to. Convenient to Princeton. Rooms are clean and hotel is spread out nicely in the woods. We did not eat here but the location worked perfectly for us. Located just off route 1.

A typical Marriott experience. Nothing overly special but good beds and OK service. Thought the cost of the room was a bit high given the location and amenities. The club was OK but was very loud and difficult to work in given the booming music overhead.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are a very popular business hotel during the week and on the week-end we become a good weekend get-away hotel. Our location makes us good for both business and personal. The rates for the room happen to be less on the weekend with very good packages on line. However,... More

Rooms and overall property are immaculate. Pool and hot tub actually sparkled. Has the feel of a resort. Beautiful location, set back in the woods - very relaxing and refreshing. Might be the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in at a hotel. Staff was professional, helpful and extremely accommodating. Pub was relaxing, clean and inviting. Menu had enough to... More

We dined, swam and walked along the beautiful grounds centering the hotel. Contained within the village are quaint shops and eateries. Movie theaters, malls and other amusements... More

I would not have had any complaints at all if it was not for the overcharges incurred on my credit card. I stayed one night in one room. The total charges shown on my invoice were $125.35. But when I check my credit card I was charged the $125.35 but also additionally charged $139.00 2 times. When I called the... More
