Princeton Marriott and conference center Let me get right to the point, there is no reason to stay here unless your group meeting is here. The route 1 corridor is crowded with every choice under the sun, i crossed this one off at check in. Ironically i went to the Marriott courtyard first as i was confused (wrong day wrong... More

Our son had a lacrosse tournament in Princeton and we decided to stay the weekend. This hotel is close to the main drag but just enough off it to be peaceful and tranquil in the middle of the woods. The bellman and front desk staff are super. We were upgraded and got a room in the main building just upstairs... More

Stayed for one night as part of a longer trip and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are excellent - very comfortable and modern and the location is beautiful, if somewhat remote from Princeton itself (5miles). The hotel runs a very good on-demand shuttle service into Princeton (and Princeton Junction) which was perfect for a quick visit to see the... More

Second stay at this hotel because the first visit was so good. As usual the rooms are comfortable, the hotel pristine and the front desk staff very professional. Some minor problems or let downs, bath didn't have the typical convenience package of Q-Tips, shower cap etc. My wife pointed this out. We don't really use them but noticed they were... More

What a wonderful hotel experience. It is 4 stories nestled in the woods....beautiful and peaceful setting. Room was wonderful and every single staff member was extremely pleasant and helpful. It was all 5 stars. The meeting room was great and the snack bar was a good way to get treats. The food in the dining room was so horrible that... More

The Princeton Marriott is located a short drive outside of town in a very pleasant setting. The hotel is a 3 story, lodge-style building, set in an attractive woodsy glade. The spotless room I was in appeared to have been recently updated. The bed was quite comfortable, the bathroom was bright, and there was plenty of hot water. I might... More

Depends on what you are looking for in a hotel. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of rustic and modern elements of the property. There are rooms in a multi-floor building and low-rise buildings that stretch down long corridors. We visited for a rainy Saturday, so did not get to enjoy the beauty of what looked like extensive...

Staff is very friendly. Very nice location, clean & modern room, good food. We were mistakenly charged extra for breakfast (it was included in our package) and the front desk clerk took care of it right away when I inquired. Only negative would be the high food & drink prices at the bar.

We stayed here for one night recently (hoping it had improved) It was the worst ever nights sleep I never got!! First impressions the lobby looks like the floor is WET and you could slip with any step taken across the over shiny floor, it needs to be tones down, if it’s supposed to look like slate tiles then don't...

We spent a night at this hotel which is located off the main road, in a quiet area, but close enough to the center of Princeton. The hotel has the feel of a lodge with the brick walls of the large lobby and adjoining restaurant and seating areas, and the wide wooden staircase. The hotel upper floors are accessible via... More
