This is my second visit to this hotel in a year, and sadly the experience is similar. The hotel itself seems like a place that once was state-of-the-art, but now is a bit run down (bed could use a new mattress, room is clean with a nice TV, but otherwise not notable). My lack of enthusiasm comes from the services... More

Friends were staying at the hotel, which was very nice. We visited them and decided to have dinner in the bar restaurant. Service was very slow, staff was inattentive and the food was mediocre at best and horribly overpriced for what I would expect at a property like this.

Was here for a conference and had some challenges. The room was freezing and had to turn off the AC. Asked for a referral for an afternoon meal and when we got to the suggested restaurant they were closed except for the bar. Wifi is horrible in the conference area and they wanted $18 a day for wifi. Food was... More

Located in a forested area, it’s a quiet peaceful hotel. Sleep quality was good. The room was average size and the bathroom small. The breakfast buffet had many options and was a good way to start the day.

Dear Dreaming Travelers, Thank you for your review of the Princeton Marriott. We are only about a 10 minute drive to Downtown Princeton and the University.

This quaint hotel is set on a lovely wooded property but it's not your typical Marriott - it looks like a 3-story ski lodge. Apparently the building was once a different hotel chain and Marriott bought it and renovated. It felt like a fancy camping trip. They have lots of outside seating and a gazebo. We had access to their... More

Hello Mellissa, and thank you for taking the time to review your stay of the Princeton Marriott. You're quite right when you describe us as "not your typical Marriott!" Our lodge setting provides a very relaxing atmosphere. The hotel was originally the Scanticon, and we've been a Marriott for over 10 years now. I'm glad to see that you enjoyed... More

Nestled rather neatly and quietly off of the very popular Route 1 highway is this well appointed Marriott hotel. Quiet, subdued and serene environment. Its a perfect hotel for companies that seek prime meeting spaces as well as for those who wish to get away, relax and re-energize. This hotel seems to pride itself on service and its employee seemingly... More
