As I walked into a very friendly front desk agent and checked us in right away. Our room was clean and updated. Only issue I may say I had was where the tv was situated from the bed and the sofa. But this is not enough to complain about their friendliness and cleanliness.

Pretty well located along US Route 1 in Princeton, close to many places, but quite difficult to get to when arriving from South Route 1. I got a great room deal for a Saturday/Sunday night but got an average room on ground floor, not big, not 100% clean and with a very noisy A/C system that I had to shutdown... More

in the past, as a member of the marriott program, I was used to feel a little more attention - just this special feeling to be welcome in someones home... however, it might be just this hotel, or maybe marriott in general has changed. The were not able to pull my marriott number at the check-in - I had to... More

Room was spacious with Google lighting set. The front desk and the breakfast personnel were courteous and helpful. Nice hiking path behind it along the Carniege Lake. However, two nights sleeps in the high 70's room resulted in major point deductions because the noisy old clunking air conditioner would make you staying awake.

Everything is underwhelming. The pool is small and equivalent in size and depth to a backyard above ground pool. The rooms are standard but nicely appointed. Went to the "bistro" for a drink. All by ourselves and one small glass of wine and a beer was $20! Outrageous! But Ruby Tuesdays is right next door if you want something more... More

Visited Princeton recently and stayed here one night. Convenient location within a 5 minute drive to town's restaurants and shops. Check in was a breeze. Hotel looks relatively new. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Did not include breakfast so went into town to grab a quick bite. Stay was very pleasant and reason I didn't give it a... More

I stayed here with colleagues on a business trip. I found this Courtyard to provide reasonable accommodations and the staff to be friendly. It is obvious from the room layout that this Courtyard is OLD. The property is decorated in the grey motif which, in my opinion, is designed to hide dirt and wear and tear. The problem is the...

My wife and I stayed last week as a backup choice -- we usually stay at Hilton family hotels -- and we're actually quite glad we did. The hotel was terrific -- clean, modern rooms, nice décor, all that you could want for a weekend stay. The ONLY complaint is The Bistro. Seriously -- at any hotel such as this,... More

Many issues with this hotel. Starts from the top. I stayed her for several months and brought the cleanliness of the rooms to the management as well as hot water issues. None of the issues were ever fixed. I also worked a negotiated rate with Director Sales to find six weeks later it was not being honored. Management is poor... More

Being a chaperone was fortunate to have room solo. Very comfortable bed/bedding. Bathroom was spacious, water pressure excellent even with hotel full of teams. Flat screen swivel so can watch from bed desk or sofa, Good desk space. Lotsa outlets to charge up. One thing quite notable is the WiFi was excellent, strong signal, fast connection. The best I've had... More
