Over the past year, I have had to transition into being a caregiver to my two elderly parents as well as working full time. This holiday weekend was the first full weekend that I took off since last Christmas. The Princeton Marriott at Forrestal provided the perfect escape only 1.5 hours away from where I live in Manhattan. The hotel... More

The Marriott at Princeton Forrestal is in a lovely setting, its rooms are large and clean, and the breakfast offerings (e.g., excellent omelettes made to order) are enough to make this an exceptional Marriott and a great place to stay. But, what puts this hotel over the top are its staff members who, without being overly intrusive, let you know... More

I pretty much stay exclusively at Mattiott properties when traveling, as much as possible. Had an opportunity to stay in Princeton recently and chose this over the nearby Courtyard property. It is a not a typical Marriott layout, and instead has a lodge like feel to it in a peaceful wooded setting, well set back from the highway. Very nice.... More

This is a full conference center Marriott featuring a lodge-like setting. The site is both wooded and quiet. The rooms are typical Marriott, well appointed with very nice bedding and brand new oversized down pillows. The comforter is down but a bit warm for the summer (use the blanket in the closet instead). Great towels, mediocre room service menu, but... More

We have been coming to this hotel since our son, who is now 32, was a small child. At that time it was not a Marriott, but belonged to a Danish corporation.

This hotel is in a wooded quiet area which is very nice. Plenty of parking. Easy to get to. Convenient to Princeton. Rooms are clean and hotel is spread out nicely in the woods. We did not eat here but the location worked perfectly for us. Located just off route 1.

A typical Marriott experience. Nothing overly special but good beds and OK service. Thought the cost of the room was a bit high given the location and amenities. The club was OK but was very loud and difficult to work in given the booming music overhead.
