This Marriott has very nice hotel rooms with clean, modern bathrooms. The fitness center has several cardio machines with built-in tvs and a basket of earbuds - very convenient! Breakfast is good and room service is available. Nice lobby and a friendly staff make this a great place to stay.

My 10-year old and I stayed at this hotel over a portion of the weekend, and we were impressed with the service, cleanliness and room. While room walls are less-than sound-proof, we had a comfortable room following a seemles check-in. I highly recommend this hotel for someone's next stay if they need to be in the Princeton area.

This was an OK place- I can't rate it as poor, because the sleep quality was fine; however, it's a large hotel, and when we stayed there there were a lot of traveling teams, with all the loudness and craziness that entails. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay for the night, this isn't it. The price... More

Good morning, Thank you so much for your feedback! I am truly sorry your stay with us wasn't perfect due to the large traveling familes/teams this weekend. Over the summer we have 2-3 extremely busy sports weekends and this weekend was the first amongst them. We usually are much quieter and would recommend staying with us for a relaxing experience....

We've been home four days and Im feeling guilty because this place really deserves a glowing recommendation. The front desk staff was delightful, the housekeeping staff was gracious, and Larry was awesome! The rooms are newly renovated and their mattress is one of the best I've ever slept on anywhere. The beautiful setting and all the other attributes this hotel... More

It was a great place to stay. The restaurant was busy and a bit slow but they were very nice and apologetic for the delay. Rooms were nice and clean. My only complaint was VALET was TERRIBLE...slow slow slow!! But other than that, it was good!!

I have attended my last four high school reunions at the Forrestal Marriott, most recently this month, and I can't say enough about how well they attended us. The place seeis in a bucolic setting.... lots of trees and nice places to take a walk; nice places to sit and hang out with friends having coffee or drinks. The atmosphere... More

I stay at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal frequenly over the year on business and this is an exceptional property. The hotel and rooms are renovated, and the changes are just outstanding. The hotel is very business friendly, the redesigned and renovated rooms have a large desk surface and exceptionally good chair. From a business perspective these rooms are one... More

Just organized a reunion at the Forrestal Marriott that went beautifully. The event manager and the entire staff were competent, helpful, and courteous. The venue itself is lovely and the meal we organized was delicious and elegantly handled within our budget. There were several other events at the same time, but no feeling of being mobbed. I was initially sticker... More

I returned here for another week whilst working in NJ. Another comfortable room. Great service by all the folks at reception and the bar/breakfast restaurant. Despite the heavy snow, the hotel seemed to be running smoothly and the paths/roads were clear. The shuttle bus was on hand to take me into Princeton when required, although I had a few issues...

Stayed here one night for a business meeting. Rooms near concierge lounge are recently renovated and modern and are average Size for a USA Marriott hotel. Hotel meeting facilities and buffet lunch are good. Overall a pleasant stay- no wows and no disappointments or issues.
