I enjoyed the good gymn and the pool. Facilities are excellent to get rid of the burgers around the hotel. The location is a bit far from the Princeton city, but maybe this is just the comment of an European alien.

We had a big family birthday party there. The staff was very pleasant and made arranging the party easy. They were very easy to work with in terms of answering questions and making sure things were to our liking. My kids had room service twice while we were there. The service was prompt and the food was excellent both times.... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times since I was a child and it was operated by a company other than Marriott. What was true then is true now, it has a fabulous pool, and would make a great family weekend escape for a family with children that love to swim. I most recently stayed in late December for... More

This is a hotel that should have the Marriott sign ripped off. It's old creaky, poorly designed, cold and just tired. For some reason they're doing a quickie room renovation - poorly and as "cost effectively" as possible instead of leveling the place and building something great as it is in a prime location with amazing potential. Staff are as... More

Such comfy and clean rooms. Bed was to die for. I could have laid in this bed all day. Feather pillows, down comforters, 32in flat screen tv. New updates bathrooms. Nice roomy shower. Indoor pool for all. Restaurant was expensive. That was the only down fall.

I have stayed there several times over past 2 years on business trips. Never disappointed. The rooms are clean and I am told currently being updated. The lobby offers a comfortable relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant and sports bar are very good. The hotel is located just off Route 1. The hotel property is large and quiet. Deer can be seen...

We had a quick overnight stay here during a snowy February weekend. The property is tucked away on a very quiet expansive piece of property, but very close to downtown Princeton and the frenetic Rt.1 corridor. I stayed at this property years ago for business conferences. It is still very well maintained and has a lot of ameneties to offer.... More

The good - very nice staff and the restaurant and pub is really good. The bad - it has a cleaner smell when you walk in. Its under renovation so be prepared for construction workers around you. The elevator is slow due to the renovations. The OK - I stayed in a renovated room, it is nice and new, but... More

Stayed there for four nights on a business trip. Nice location. Restaurants are very good. The staff is very helpful. Will recommend. The breakfast was good. The gym is small so peak hours should be avoided; the gym is very basic. I recommend they expand it to be a bit more useful, rather than just a commodity.

We spend a few nights a year here. Great staff,beautiful lobby and decent rooms. Always very relaxing. An overnight seems like a full weekend. We were informed the rooms are being redone,so while the rooms were basically fine, I would believe they will be even better after the renovation. You can't go wrong here
