Having stayed at this property many times in the past and written several positive reviews, this review is basically for business customers. It is meant to show what full service hotels should not do to their best customers. Under the guise of the pandemic this full service Marriott now offers the same service and benefits of a Motel 6-nothing is available at this place. Checking in I was provided an extensive list of what was not available: No newspaper, no welcome gift, no morning coffee in the lobby, no drink coupon, which was in the website, as a perk for all the other discontinued services, no grab and go breakfast unless it is purchased, etc. And the general staff attitude was " What can we do less for a paying customer? " I guarantee that business customers will remember when the pandemic is over how penny wise and pound foolish this place is. Give me a good Fairfield Inn any day- better value and nicer attitude.

Dear RayCharles201, Thank you for choosing to return to our property and for your honest feedback. We regret to hear that your last stay with us was less than exemplary and we hope that you are able to accept our sincerest apologies. We do hope that this does not prevent you from returning to stay with us again some time in the future. Here at the Princeton Marriott Forrestal we continuously strive to provide exceptional service and maintain the safety of all our guests. Our services have been adjusted in order to fulfill our guests' needs as well as maintaining a clean and safe environment. All high-touch surfaces are regularly sanitized and social-distancing measures are in place. Upon check-in we provide our guests with information about our updated amenity offerings and hotel policies. Our welcome gift has since been updated to Bonus Points and additional points are also offered due to our MClub being closed. Our restaurant hours have been adjusted relative to demand and during normal business days Mon-Sun, we offer a la carte breakfast, coffee, and tea at our Starbucks. We have shared your experience and concerns with the affiliated management teams. We highly value our guests and strive to make every stay exceptional and memorable. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we do hope you will join us again.

First time staying here. It's a nice large hotel that has some great common areas that would be terrific to use when they're open. The lounge was closed and the restaurant was doing room service. Staff was terrific. Just note that there's only two floors so if you're on the first floor, you should make sure the curtain is closed before showering, etc. I look forward to returning when I can enjoy more of their amenities.

I was a germaphobe even before Covid, so I was concerned about going anywhere. I'm happy to report that this hotel was fabulous. VERY clean, seemed to be following all CDC guidelines. From walking in the front door, to the front desk, grounds, and the room - things couldn't have been more clean. Again, precovid, I always wiped down everything in the room, and I still did - but I don't know if I really had to this time. They also give you wipes to use if you don't have your own. The pool and fitness area were closely monitored (you have to make an appt for either), and those areas were constantly being cleaned. On top of all this the staff, like Matt, Chrissy and the GM, Michael - were all so nice, helpful and willing to be avail for any help or questions. If you need a night or two or more to just get a Covid break, Princeton is a beautiful area and I'd highly recommend this hotel. And, go to Grounds for Sculpture - so beautiful and all outdoors!

The staff have been very accommodating to all of our team needs, they are the best! This has been our go to off site meeting place for our team coming in from Washington DC, NY & CT during COVID - our team feels safe, everything is clean and they offer outdoor meeting space when the weather is nice.
