“White Glove service at half the price!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Wow, what an experience! I was a little indecisive, but i am glad i choose this Hotel! I travel for business all the time. I usually stay at the Westin or the Marriott but i decided to try this hotel! One of the best hotels in the area, Hands down!! Please ask for Liana Lopez (hopefully i spelled her last name right), she is so welcoming, passionate, charming, funny and caring! She made sure all my needs were met! This will forever be my hotel!

Room Tip: Speak to Liana Lopez!

wow, what a nice CP hotel! This is a bright modern CP hotel in the Princeton area and I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed there a few days ago. I must admit I came with low expectations as most US-based CPs are only modest in quality but this one favorably compares to many of the larger international properties. Check-in was quick and efficient and my room on the exec floor was furnished nicely. The lounge was rather small and somewhat crowded with a loud group of guest which made me leave but the evening Hors d'oeuvres looked nice. I had an evening dinner appt in downtown Princeton and asked for a complimentary area shuttle which ended up being a local cab (which the hotel paid!).
The bed was very comfortable and I slept well which isn't always the case when I am traveling. BF in the lounge was a bit sparse in diversity but the quality of the items was very good and I left very satisfied. Check-out was a breeze and I was on the road in no time. Next time I have to be in the Princeton area this is definitely going to be my hotel of choice.

Hotel is run pretty efficiently, and it's easy as a business traveler to get in and out. Ample parking, decent food and bar. Rooms, however, are only on par with the much cheaper Holiday Inn that's right there. Beds at the nearby Westin are more comfortable.

I stayed here about a month ago. The hotel is new and shiny on a beautiful tree-filled campus. The staff were the best part. Was greeted by Liana at the front desk who was and remained so friendly and helpful during my entire stay. John at the bar was so easy-going and deeply knowledgeable about the wines he serve. A very great stay!!

We stayed here last weekend for a soccer tournament. The property and the rooms were all new. The rooms were clean and well organized. We had a couple issues with no working phone line in the room and a remote that didn't work, but not big issues for a one night stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The one drawback that brings the rating down to a three is the bed sheets. They were horrible. Clean and new, but they felt like that piece of paper/cloth they used to put on the back of airplane seats headrests to protect against lice. Wake you up uncomfortable. Hopefully they'll invest in some new softer bedding to go with the renovation.

Room Tip: We stayed in the north tower- it appeared to be fully renovated. We asked for the top floor away fr...
