The Courtyard seems to be recently renovated. The staff is welcoming, the lobby is a good place to have a light breakfast or have coffee by the fire. Unlike most Princeton hotels, wifi is free. There is a fitness room with treadmills and one elliptical, and a small indoor pool. Small frig in each room. Free coffee on weekends only;... More

I stayed at the hotel for an over night before my daughter's audition. They have a nice fitness room with three machines, weights and water, and small pool area. They have a good breakfast bar and dining area but it was a bit pricey. I am a fan of including breakfast in the room rate. The breakfast area was trendy... More

I stayed here, for business. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist. The room was comfy and clean, too. I am in a hotel, so I don't expect a huge gift shop. I did not partake in breakfast, as I brought my own. I had a nice little refrigerator, and a microwave. If breakfast had been included, I might... More

Regularly stay at hotels on the Rte 1 Corridor by Princeton when visiting relatives. We've tried many of the others, and haven't returned, due to noisy rooms, inconvenient, access, etc. Would happily return to this property - very quiet, check-in was friendly, and rooms were clean and spacious.

The cramped reception desk with the freezers full of microwave food behind it and plastic cups of popcorn with colored bits in front of it was welcoming and depressing at the same time. The idea that you are likely to warm up such meal in your room microwave may be efficient, but it's also sort of sad. You can get... More

The staff at check-in was pleasant and professional and everything about the hotel met or exceeded our expectations. Although this hotel was at least as nice as any Courtyard Marriott that I have stayed in, I hesitated to give this hotel a five star rating because it's hard for a hotel in it's class to stand out. The difference between... More

On rte 1 about 3 miles from "downtown" Princeton location for the hotels on this busy road ain't the best. Not the hotels fault but from overall experience perspective I must still critique the location and it is just average; convenient to rte 1 but not much else.

It's normal courtyard hotel. Front desk was friendly. My flight reached early in the morning and they provided by early check-in without any charge. Room was good and clean. Only -ve is that don't serve buffet breakfast. They should provide buffet breakfast isntead of the bistro.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Service was pretty good-front desk and bistro staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The cons, however, outweigh the good points. The room was in bad shape-the tub/shower needed to be replaced. The shower head was leaking, the ceiling was peeling, and there was a lot of rust. The mirrored... More
