This property is in need of an upgrade. The staff was excellent and accommodating however it just wasn't up to par with condensation in the hallway ceilings, and the room air conditioner was barely adequate. As I said, the staff was excellent, the property just needs some work.

Stayed here for 5 nights for a meeting held at the hotel. Conference facilities were actually very good. The bedrooms though were not up to the usual standard expected of a Westin so I was rather disappointed. The smell of damp and mildew in the hallways and room was overpowering. Shower was over the bath and was challenging when the... More

I expected more from the hotel. The lobby leaves you with the impression that rooms will be modern and equipped with modern technology but they are not. There are no usb ports and the wifi service was spotty. I was surprised being that the hotel is located in a corporate park. Seems like this hotel is more of a place... More

The hotel has good facilities and service. Ample room and bathroom, even with an ironing board. There is a shuttle that brings you to Princeton. Not much to do in the near areas, though: a few restaurants and that's it.

Here for a family wedding. Almost didn't get a room on the same floor as family, let alone nearby even though I had requested this in advance. Great hotel for an Indian wedding, large reception area with separate entrance, also had large meeting rooms available for gathering. Coffee maker and fridge in rooms. However it was the customer service that... More

Several meeting rooms, large space for wedding, dancing and food. Front area spacious for Bharat. Pool and workout center on site. Firm beds. Spacious rooms. Rooms need more up keep around doorways, frames and bath. Large flat screen tv and fridge in room. Great value for accommodations.

Stayed here for 1 night and almost checked out early. Pool is full of families who rent one room for the weekend and invite 20-30 of their family to join them. They are bullies who reserve all the seats all day and scream at you if you take an empty seat. It's like a gang. I called spg to complain...... More

I'd probably give this a 3.5 if I could. The lobby is lovely but the rooms are just ok. The carpets need updating but the room had all the basics. It would have been nice to have had a microwave. The flatscreen tv is huge. There was a fire alarm at 2:30 in the morning so there was a lot... More
