“A good hotel on beautiful landscape!”
Reviewed May 15, 2005

What do I think of Chauncey Conference Center? Well first I have to tell you a little about its background which I learned from the bartender we met while staying there or else you'll be really confused when trying to find the place. :) This hotel which is now open to the public was originally used for those people working in the buildings on this huge park like property. This is where a company called Educational Testing Services is located. Chauncey was originally used just for them, but now is open to the public. The hotel itself as I said is located on a huge park like property. It gives you a feel of a country estate, you have to drive far into the estate to find the hotel. The hotel itself is earthtone in color and very clean. There is alot of pine woodwork here as well. They have a country house you can stay in, but we had a standard room in the hotel. The rooms are newly renovated with green and beige tones and a marble like bathroom, the king size bed we had was extremely comfortable. The rooms on the first floor offer you a patio like setting with a door leading to the outside, while second floor rooms give you a balcony, which I thought was very nice. You can get a fridge in your room for a 10 dollar fee, which we did. High speed internet is also free which my boyfriend enjoyed. They have an outdoor pool, tennis courts and a good sized inside fitness center. The only drawback is that while Chauncey is not far from downtown Princeton. They have no real restaurant to speak of on their own grounds. They offered a small buffet for 35 dollars a person in the Solomon dining room(expensive) which I felt wasn't worth it. They do have a nice bar with an American fare menu which seemed good. The explanation they gave for the lack of a real restaurant is that they have only recently opened to the public. I booked this room on a priceline like website, which made it even more desireable and inexpensive, the staff is very helpful, but I must admit a bit unorganized so review the details before your stay. Overall a great choice.
