I was here on business not my usual fun travel. I found this hotel to be average at best. I liked the lobby area- it is really well taken care of. The front desk are top of the line. However, the rooms need a serious upgrade. They smell musty, and seem dark and isolated. The beds were not a great... More

If you are looking for a getaway weekend in NJ tucked away in the woods but close to shopping and restaurants as well as a world famous university and town, book a stay at the Princeton Marriott. The indoor pool, hot tub and spa alone are worth the visit. With a bar and restaurant on the premises and a fireplace... More

I attended a meeting at this hotel so it made sense to stay here. The rooms are comfortable and are a good size, but they are old and dark - the hotel and rooms are very out of date and in need of renovation. However, even if this happened, a big issue with this hotel is the isolation. It's not... More

Stayed for a second time on business and first impressions reconfirmed. Its just average in every respect. Modest sized rooms looking a little tired with just about okay presentation. Most staff just going through the motions - they say the right things but not in a very convincing way and just that strange forced smile. Maybe they know its just... More

Over the years, I stayed numerous times here, and it is def the best hotel in the area. Less than a mile from Route 1 (with some shopping and restaurants around 5-10 min drive). The hotel is nicely located in the woods and not the typical Marriott style. Rooms are large and clean - all with small kitchenette, but decor... More

This hotel is a great business hotel--they have lots of meeting rooms, decent food, plenty of parking. If you are visiting someone attending Princeton--it works from a leisure perspective too. There is a spa on location. The lobby is large with lots of seating. The conference rooms are easy to find. There is a hotel restaurant--it is fine, particularly for... More

I am evaluating this a viewpoint of a frequent business traveler. This hotel tells me they are putting me in a room with "concierge amenities" and I asked to confirm that. The room does not have any of the amenities at all. The concierge lounge is unkempt and the staff there is friendly and kind but seems completely overworked and... More

This hotel is quite nicely located in the woods, the rooms are large and clean. The breakfast is good. The problem is the price. This hotel is often used as a conference hotel by larger and smaller companies. Thus, it seems they can charge whatever they want. Usually it is much too expensive. You may be lucky and can book...
