Honestly one of the most mismanaged hotels I've ever been in. The front desk staff is extremely rude. We were there for a wedding where the Bride had given them Welcome Bags for us - but they failed to give them to us upon checking in. They had a computer system failure - that they were aware of, but still... More

I had 2 stays here recently as I try to get myself to SPG Platinum after already making Hilton Diamond for the year. I didn't really expect or ask for anything more than a clean, comfortable room, and it gave me that. My air conditioning worked surprisingly well for some 95+ degree late summer New Jersey days last week. As... More

Thus forgot to hand me our breakfast voucher (2) 1 BR suite was large but dated (3) Bathroom counter has someone else's hair on it (3) Hotel forgot to leave bottled water in room for SPG/Platinum guests.

The hotel grounds are very nice and the business meeting accommodations (large meeting room, AV, etc. were pretty standard). The sleeping accommodations were not the greatest. The room was too warm, the shower leaked and the toilet ran occasionally. Since it was just a one night stay, I just dealt with it but was surprised to have that happen at... More

If you have never stayed at this hotel be sure to ask where the parking is located and how far it is to your room, find out what is the best way to unload luggage and the locations of amenities, especially the elevators. The hotel staff do not tell you this upon check-in and there is no map in the... More

All the staff were very friendly, the hotel was well located very close by to a main train station so was easy to get to, surrounded by a small number of shops in a quiet area. It was a well maintained hotel with spacious rooms. Managed to get good sleep, the bed was comfortable. Overall a pleasant stay

I Love this hotel!! I have been here 2 times so far (and I live within half an hour). Once for a local getaway overnight with my husband and another time with my kids just to get away and go swimming. Both times I also opted for the late check out package and it was great!!!!!!

A wonderful experience. We were in Princeton for family party. We had booked The Hyatt but didnt realize it was a stark business hotel with rooms so far from lobby. After two more mistakes we drove to The Westin. What attracted us was the out door pool it had on a nice warm summer day. The hotel was wonderful. The... More
