“Nice place”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Property seemed to have been recently opened / refurbished and everything was flawless.

Spotless rooms with excellent noise insulation.

Breakfast service a bit confused (probably still finding their feet), missed having the convenience of a buffet (also takes extra time).

I was on a business trip from Miami and decided to stay at this establishment. I arrived late, which always worries me, but the overnight desk was incredibly helpful. I was helped by a man named Andrew who made my check in process a breeze. The hotel is clean, the rooms are nice and I would definitely recommend a stay to my fellow travelers.

The new rooms are great but the thing that makes the difference in this hotel is the staff. I would emphasize the first class reception staff. I have been fortunate to stay in lots of leading hotels but these guys are truly hard to beat. A real credit to their organization. Well done! I will most definitely be back.

The hotel is minutes from the highway and Princeton but quietly situated in a forest, with trails and a pond beside. There are tennis courts, racquetball, basketball, and a decently sized indoor pool. However, the hotel really shines with its warm, friendly, GENUINE staff, lots of public spaces - pool tables even. The rooms are nice, clean, spacious, and the windows open. I was under the weather, and the front desk heard and brought up ginger ale! Stellar customer service! Because of the staff, location, proximity to shops and restaurants, nice quiet rooms, I will stay here whenever I'm back in the area.

I just stayed there Sunday and Monday. The hotel is beautiful both in and out. The staff is super amazing and nice. From room service, checkin and at Flight. The hotel was super quiet for being almost full. My room was large, clean and top notch decor. Breath of fresh air that it was so updated. I would put this in my top 5 hotels and highly recommend. I will stay at this hotel when I am in the area.
