We have enjoyed a few stays at this location. The hotel is in a great location, short drive to Princeton and about 45 min from Newark International. The forrest location is very nice, and it's an easy place to run from if you like to run. The food provided by the restaurant (buffet for a conference group) was very good,...

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We love our location too. Being so close to Downtown Princeton, the airports, and even the train that takes you into Manhattan allows for so much flexibility. It's a great location tucked into the woods. We look forward to your return either for business or pleasure.

We recently visited Princeton and chose to stay at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, The following are our impressions of the property: 1. The hotel is situated in a nice, wooded campus setting. 2. Plenty of free parking. Not far from train station (about a 10 minute drive) 3. Atypical Marriott design (only 3 levels and is more spread out)....

My party had a very enjoyable stay for my daughters 14 birthday party. We splurged and got 3 rooms for 8 teenage girls and 3 adults. The staff, from checkin (Anthony?) to checkout was friendly and informative. Our waiter (Ryan I believe) was exceptional and friendly handling a large party of teens, and the man that brought a cot was...

I stayed here for one night while in town for a work offsite. I was greeted by a friendly reception person and the most delicious cookies and hot cider. I hadn't eaten all day so it hit the spot. There is a certain comfort and charm to staying in the woods at this hotel with the indoor pool, fireplaces and...

One of the rare reviews for me as I'm confused how to rate it. Had to chose between a Courtyard very local to business or this property a little further away so I chose it based on being a full service property. I knew it wouldn't be a 'normal' Marriott property but upon arrival I just got the notion this...

With the Forestal complex a hotel is the perfect top off. The hotel in my opinion would rate as a 4 star hotel. It has many extra features versus the other names in the area but it costs no more here versus ala carte' at those other hotels. In Princeton this is hands down the best bang for your buck...
