I recently took my wife to this hotel and spa based on a coworker's recommendation (he had heard about it but ever been there). We decided to go for a spa afternoon and an overnight. I don't think we will do that again at this hotel. When we arrived, we were supposed to eat lunch then have massages. When we... More

As a Platinum member my family and I were very well received. Friendly staff at the reception and concierge lounge. Concierge Lounge Evening Hors d'oeuvres were a real meal (spaghetti carbonara were enjoyed by my children). Choice of Chocolate and Cheese cake for desert. Hotel is in a quiet forest surrounding. Princeton University and it's campus nearby is worth a... More

Our stay at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal was marked by terrible weather -torrential rain- and that has somewhat influenced this review. Parking for the hotel is located 100 yards and more from the entrance to the hotel. Valet parking is available, if desired. However, on the day of our arrival, it was pouring rain, and the entrance area was... More

We recently stay at this location. It is close to everything yet set back off the main roads. It allows you to get away for the hustle. The grounds are quiet and secluded. The parking lot is quite a hike but they do offer valet service. There also are not many options on accessing the parking. So when the weather... More

We had a very great relaxing time here. The lobby is very welcoming and the concierge people were very helpful. The spa service was great! Sunday brunch is served at the restaurant on site and not included in the room price. It has several selections including warm and cold items. On the other days we just bought breakfast items a-la-cart... More

I have stayed at many many marriotts. I used a free night certificate to stay here. While this is not the most luxurious marriott around, it certainly is very nice, and peaceful. The bathrooms and bedrooms are pretty modern and the typical nice bedding duvet etc. The only thing I would mention is the wallpaper should be changed but everything... More

We were thrilled with the clean quarters, friendly service, and quality food. We purchased the "romance package", which included chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, a late check-out, and the breakfast. Everything was excellent, with a particular emphasis on breakfast. I have been to this conference center for a returning conference each of the last four years as a presenter, although... More
