Room was spacious and appeared newly renovated with plush mattress and down duvet cover. Concierge and rest of desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. Grounds are wooded with bikes to borrow and a jogging path through the trees.Short drive to University.

I recently stayed here for three nights for business meetings. I was so impressed at the hotel staff- they all say hello and are helpful. The food was delicious and the pillows and bedding on the bed were like sleeping on a cloud. This hotel is in a nice wooded area with a beautiful lobby.

The hotel was nice enough, and the staff is VERY friendly and helpful, but I have a couple of gripes...and I hate to gripe! But, I'm very angry with Marriott right now that they refuse to offer free coffee in the lobby at their hotels. So, you go to the lobby and get a "starbucks" coffee (whatever), and you put... More

Good morning, I understand by your review that you were not completely satisfied with your stay with us. I first want to apologize for that! I completely understand as I too would be upset if there wasn't complimentary coffee in the lobby and would really be upset if there was noise outside my guestroom all night which kept me from...

When we arrived to the room, their was a gift basket full of snacks and beverages with a happy birthday note from the front desk.... More

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 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.
