I have used this property for business trips on a number of occassions over the past couple of years. The hotel is situated just off Rt. 1, pretty secluded in a wooded area. It is different from other Marriotts I have used being a lodge type property with just 4 floors but very wide with a large conference centre filling one wing. The hotel is about 15 mins. drive from Princeton centre and a car is essential as you cannot walk easily to any place.
There is a good size indoor swimming pool at the property and the fitness room is good and open 24 hours with your room cardkey
Rooms are standard Marriott type with a small fridge and coffe/tea maker - nothing special but more than adequate.
During the week, the hotel has a high percentage of business visitors either staying or using the conference facilities. The bar is generally lively during the evening but I find the bar food expensive. Breakfast is also relatively expensive unless you can get it as part of the rate. There is a concierge lounge open from Sunday evening to Friday morning for Marriott gold card and above members.
I have found the staff to be without exception welcoming and helpful - always willing to greet you when entering the hotel. Other than around the bar area, that is well away from the bedrooms, the hotel is quiet even when full.
For business I would have no hesitation recommendng this hotel.
