We love the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal. Its a perfect way to escape the busy city and spend some quiet time either at the Spa, walking the grounds or visiting downtown Princeton with its stores and cafes. Staff is very friendly and the hotel has a great pool/hot pool and a gym. Its best to drive, but you can always... More

This hotel is noisy. Do not stay in room 1414. Not sure why all the noise at night and the lack of consideration from others. The concierge room is directly across from 1414 and the constant door closing was ridiculous. The people going in and out began well before 0700. They need to get a new latch system or leave...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal. I am sorry to hear that your room location did not provide you with the quiet and restful night you were looking forward to. I would be upset too if I were looking for a good night sleep and heard noise from the hallways... More

I’ve been to many Marriott hotels and many spas. One of the reasons that I visit the Princeton Marriott twice a year is because of Ken in the Spa! Not only is he a great massage therapist but he is a genuinely warm and kind gentleman! He always exemplifies "Marriott At Your Service." His effort has never gone unnoticed by... More

This place is all about the grounds / property. The entrance is quite grand. The rolling brick hardscape feels like the more historic areas of Princeton, NJ. The building itself feels like a higher end lodge with all of the dark wood and exposed beams. The highlights of my stay were the awesome indoor pool / spa and breakfast at... More

I stayed there for a business trip in Oct 2015. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The room was immaculately clean. Water pressure in the shower was great (I hate when they have cheap shower heads & there's no water pressure). I'll definitely be going back there again.. I'm actually looking forward to it :)

This was a clean, pretty hotel with a nice indoor pool. There is a full service restaurant, although I didn't take advantage of the convenience. I would go back if I needed to visit the area again.Was able to check right in. Got a good group rate for our soccer tournament.

This Marriott is tucked away, surrounded by greenery, quiet, with a beautiful open lobby. It's easy to get to Princeton in 5 minutes, and it's approximately 30 minutes to New Hope and Lambertville. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable and quiet. The staff were all extremely welcoming and helpful, especially the doorman and front desk staff. We would definitely... More

This place is about a 10 minute car ride to Princeton university and about 1 hour Newark airport and 1.5 hours from NYC. It offers free parking. The hotel is located in a cute forest path and it appears that most of the rooms have a very scenic garden view. The bellmen and check in staff are really nice and... More
