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...

Location is excellent - close to campus and all you'd need to do in the area, yet in a quiet area removed from Rt 1. It's got a lodgey feel - it's only 3 stories high, and all floors are easily accessible via elevator, or a wide open staircase in the lobby. Rooms were basic Marriott style, but small. I... More

Prob on purpose so they can sell their wifi other than that you can keep busy with all the... More
