I have repeatedly returned to this property for many years both prior to its renovations and pre pandemic and the current political and pandemic times and this outstanding IHG property still raves and far exceeds its competitors in the Princeton area. It’s accommodations of outside dining and social distance and spacing to wonderfully relaxing views from the South tower rooms of tennis courts, walking paths, plush forrestal ‘splendor and even a lake view! Staff all practicing IHG masks, to cleanliness and reassured standards of housekeeping protocols. Kudos to all, it is well worth the visit and the “stiff” incidental “hold” to guarantee the safety and cleanliness of ALL of its traveling guests in spite of a few non compliant ‘travelers that may otherwise ‘tarnish the brand!

My partner and I only stayed here one night while on a roadtrip. We were really happy with the how nice the room looked. It was also clean and comfortable. Nice mattress and pillows, too. The toiletries provided smelled nice and seemed to be a decent quality. Overall, it was a pleasant place to stay and in a good location.

I was just at the Crowne Plaza Princeton in Plainsboro NJ. Although state law and hotel policy requires masks and social distancing a majority of the guests I saw in the hallways and lobby had no masks and did not maintain social distance. Even when the violation was in front of and pointed out to the reservation desk staff the staff did nothing. The reservation desk staff is protected by plastic shields and they wore masks but the hotel did nothing to protect its guests from the guests who blatantly and unabashedly violated the mask and social distance safety rules. The hallways are narrow and it’s unsafe.

Hi there, traveler5421MD! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with our hotel. I have an idea of how you feel about the hotel's policy.

I'll definitely share your thoughts with our hotel management team as a reference for future enhancements. I'd like to follow up on your concerns that's why I've sent you a private message. I truly hope that we will have a chance to make it up to you and provide you with a better experience upon your return. All the best, Peter J. Case Manager IHGService

Stayed there 30/31 dec 2019 for new year. Room clean and big. Gym and pool is terrific. But nobody helping with luggage. For such a big hotel they should have it. Price when i stay is preety cheap. But they should do better with the services

Thank you for your feedback. First of all, I would like to extend an apology for any inconvenience during your recent stay. I must say that during the holidays we give the opportunity to our associates to take time off so they can spend it with their loved ones since the hotel is running a very low occupancy during this time of the year. I hope you give us another chance to turn your whole experience around next time you come a visit us again. Safe travels...

Sitting in the pool area waiting for restock of towels. My husband went to the front desk to let them know only to be sent back to the pool saying there should be on the towel rack. Which was empty obviously.
