I stayed here for one night while in town for a work offsite. I was greeted by a friendly reception person and the most delicious cookies and hot cider. I hadn't eaten all day so it hit the spot. There is a certain comfort and charm to staying in the woods at this hotel with the indoor pool, fireplaces and... More

One of the rare reviews for me as I'm confused how to rate it. Had to chose between a Courtyard very local to business or this property a little further away so I chose it based on being a full service property. I knew it wouldn't be a 'normal' Marriott property but upon arrival I just got the notion this... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a business meeting. The staff is pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms are average and clean. The beds are comfortable. Recommended for a predictable and comfortable stay. Room service food is surprisingly good.

Checked in here and the front desk and greeters couldn't have been more helpful. Definitely made you feel at home. Room was nice and clean. Very quiet and business friendly. Utilized the Concierge lounge, it was always stocked and the people working in there were very friendly. Fitness center was clean and had a lot of equipment. I will definitely... More

With the Forestal complex a hotel is the perfect top off. The hotel in my opinion would rate as a 4 star hotel. It has many extra features versus the other names in the area but it costs no more here versus ala carte' at those other hotels. In Princeton this is hands down the best bang for your buck... More

The entire hotel just gives you this great feeling right when you walk in the door. The rooms are very clean and has everything, fridge, coffee/tea, robe, (microwave upon... More

Came to hotel for a quick overnight getaway and it was great. My Marriott Elite status and availability allowed us to upgrade to concierge level. The evening hors d'oeuvres and morning breakfast were great. The staff was friendly and efficient. We had a casual dinner at their pub since it was the only onsite restaurant open on a Monday night... More

I stayed here Christmas Eve and Christmas Day evening. Wonderful. The staff on duty were very welcoming and pleasant throughout the Hotel. The common areas were immaculate and my room was large with a fine king size bed. I could run on the 1.5 mile path through the woods and did so each day. A very fine place to stay... More

Stood for one night. The grounds and the lobby area are very nice and inviting. But the room was small and not nicely laid out. The room size was about the same as a Marriott Courtyard room. Also, the room looks like it needs to be updated. The bed was very uncomfortable--in dire need of new mattress. For an Elite... More

I arrived at this hotel just after midnight on December 18th. It is nicely secluded from the main road on grounds that were covered with fall foliage. The parking was adequate and well lit. The front desk concierge was warm and welcoming and gave me all of the details that I needed during my stay which among other things included... More
