I was staying in Princeton for four days to attend my Alumni Week at Westminster Choir College, which I graduated from 40 years ago. Since I had travelled by train from Arizona and did not wish to rent a car, that left me with two places within the town, Peacock and the Nassau. I have known that the Peacock was there for many years, but have never been to this establishment. Overall, I was pleased. Yes, I know this is Princeton, not known for being a slum, it is just that I find the accommodations fairly nice, but not particularly a good value for $247.50 per night.. That is the main fault, but then again there is hardly any competition within town. It is a beautiful building and it is nicely planted out front on the side of the busy street. One might hope that there were more grounds or gardens around the building, but the rest of the property is taken up by a driveway and parking lot out back. I have no complaints about the staff, who were very friendly and cheerful to me.
I did have the pleasure of dining one night in the restaurant and opted for the premium priced tasting menu with wine pairings. This was indeed quite expensive, but I must say I enjoyed my meal. The Continental breakfast is nothing to write home about, and one of the mornings found me having breakfast over at the Nassau Inn.
I was pleased that I have made the acquaintance of the Peacock Inn and it was an easy walk of about a mile to my college. It is nice on this trip to be taking the train and not having to drive everywhere!
