I know many people have had bad experiences with the hotel. We experienced the opposite. Our room was nice and clean. Yes, it seem more like a 3 star hotel inside. I think it's time for a small renovation. However, . The staff was friendly. Convenient green logo coffee shop in the first floor. We had a nice experience over all.

Upon entering room, bad wet stain at entrance. Looked like oozy stain. Dual shower head only one head worked. Wallpaper peeling. Coffee stir outside room next door . Hall looked like hadn't been cleaned in a decade and note to guest on my bed from Michael Taylor, general manager was crumpled and stained as if no one had stayed in the room for even longer. Really bad and gives westin a very bad name. Ouch!

KajaGrace,

Thank you for filling out a review of our hotel. We are appalled at the experience you had just described. On behalf of the Westin Princeton staff we are sorry that this was the image of our hotel you left with. It is way below Westin standards an surely well below our own. We are happy to inform you that we are in the last stages of our shower head replacement project. All rooms will soon have our new rainfall shower head which so far have heard fantastic feedback from our guests. In addition a fresh letter should have been placed in your room as this is the proper procedure. Again we are sorry that we had created such a negative experience and urge you to contact our Rooms Division Manager so that he may have the opportunity to speak with you directly about your concerns.

Thank you again for the important feedback and we look forward to speaking with you.

The Westin at Forrestal Village is exactly what you'd expect from a Westin. A reasonably sized room, big and comfortable bed, good shower, room service available (OK) and a desk to work at with high-speed Internet available (at a price, or included in the room rate). In fact, it's just what a business traveler needs, which is exactly why Westin is able to charge the room rate that it does. I doubt many holiday visitors pass by, and if they do, they probably go to the hotels that line route 1 rather than venturing into the rather odd "Village". Fortunately, although the village is bereft of most facilities, there is a good coffee shop just across from the hotel and a reasonable Italian restaurant (expensive) about 200 feet away. Again, just what the business person ordered...

This Westin hotel is not bad. I stayed there on business travel for the government (it's near a national lab) and the government hotel rate is quite good. The regular room rate is quite a bit higher. The rooms are a good size, but are beginning to have a bit dated appearance. The hotel is clean and in good shape, and the lobby area is really quite nice. The rooms could probably use an update - in my opinion.

Only stayed one night. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom and shower clean. Check in easy and the staff I came in contact with were friendly and attentive. Area is a high-price area so I would expect hotel to be same. Breakfast was too expensive, plus I felt for this price it should have been included. Would have stayed at the Residence Inn but it was booked full. With only a one night stay, I did not avail myself of the area attractions. Did not have a chance to use the pool. If you are on an expense account, it would be a great place to stay. If you have to pay yourself - your choice.

I have to say that it's not too bad a hotel to stay at. But it is not worth the cost. I have stayed at many rated hotels from 5 star to 2 star. I would have to give this 21/2 star. The room was stale and facilities were not spotless. A well maintained hotel would never allow stains in a tub, sink or toilet. Carpet needed cleaning. It also made you pay for Internet 24.00/3 days. 3.00 a bottle of room water. This on top of your room rate. Disappointing. A hotel at this level should include a complimentary bottle of water a day and free Internet. I would likely pick a different hotel in the future.

Room Tip: No comments on how to choose a good room.

My son had a lax tournament and the team stayed here. We enjoyed our stay, it was beautiful hotel, the area was so nice, you can walk to restaurants, The hotel itself had it's own area to eat. We had breakfast there every day. full hot breakfast. The service was great. Nancy and Sam were very helpful, friendly. The pool area was nice in/out pool. the boys had a great time at the hotel sitting area to sit around and talk. A bar was in the lobby for drinks. Defintately recommend this hotel. Beds were comfortable. You will be very happy.

Room Tip: rooms were really nice, comfortable beds really nice
