This inn blends modern comforts with old-fashioned charm. If stairs give you trouble, steer clear, because there are no elevators. You'll tote your bags up narrow staircases in this old inn, but a cozy room will reward you at the end. The room size was fine for me, but had I been traveling with my spouse, I'd have found it...

We staid at this hotel while visiting Princeton University . This is really a charming place more like a country home than a regular hotel. The "inn" is appropriate. It is well located, 15 minutes from the university, and the room while not very big are quite comfortable. They must have been redone quite recently as they have all the... More

Stayed here this past 4th of July weekend. The place is really quaint, service is excellent. It's great to have breakfast included and the option of dinner and/or drinks in the same location. Super convenient to the heart of Princeton and its many shops and restaurants. I didn't use my car the entire stay. Room was quiet, agree with others... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in walking distance of so much that Princeton has to offer. The rooms are very tastefully appointed and the staff is very friendly After a delicious dinner in town which we could walk to, it was a pleasure to end our evening with an inventive and tasty cocktail at the Peacock's bar.

I truly enjoyed staying at this hotel. The bathroom is absolute luxury, Molton Brown products and three jets pointed at you.. The room itself is quite large. I had a huge walk-in closet. The only thing I would change is that the window was blocked by the desk. I think the room can be rearranged so that the guests can... More

We booked in for one night and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The bed was large, comfortable with very good linen. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and the shower was a treat. It had multiple shower heads so you felt you were truly in a rain shower. Plenty of towels too! Check in and out was... More

We spent a weekend here and fell in love with this place. So convenient to the heart of Princeton and the University. Our room was beautifully appointed with high end furnishings.

Enjoyed our stay at the Peacock inn. The room was comfortable and very nicely appointed with Frette linen, robes, slippers and Molten Brown products. Our room was small (queen standard) and a little noisy because of its proximity to the stairs. Also we had some difficulty controlling the temperature in the room.. The inn is very walkable to downtown Princeton.... More

I stayed for two nights in September 2015. The service was excellent. The inn is adorable. The bathroom was small but beautifully appointed. Linens and robes were great. The bed was very comfortable. The a/c was quiet which is no small thing. I would have given the property a 5 except for two things: it was very expensive for the... More
