I stayed at the Hampton Inn, Princeton for 3 nights while attending an event at Princeton University and I can't say emphatically enough how delighted I was that I had chosen to stay here. The staff are friendly and professional, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped (mine had a fridge (normal) and a microwave - something one very rarely gets in Europe), and the service was top notch
Some particularly good things include:
As I was travelling on business, the free wired AND wireless wifi available in the room was particularly appreciated
The way that meals are done, with an excellent selection of breakfast items and a buffet dinner provided Monday-Thursday, which was tasty and satisfying after a long drive, with guests being able to just find themselves a table in the comfortable lounge area and eat in a relaxed setting.
The free shuttle van to Princeton University was excellent.
The staff - I've already mentioned them, but it bears mentioning again - any hotel is only as good as its staff and the staff at the Hampton Inn are excellent in all areas.
The only real con, and it's not something the hotel can do anything about, is that US 1 can be a bit confusing for international visitors. If you go out for a meal in the evening for example, you need to remember that GPS might not necessarily tell you that you can't turn left at quite a few of the local junctions, or indeed straight out of the hotel! Check Google maps etc. and work out where you can make turns before you leave! Alternatively the hotel brochure includes several places which deliver to the hotel. Local calls are free so it's a handy option!
All in all, this hotel is somewhere I'd be delighted to recommend to anyone and would stay at again in a heartbeat.
