“Under construction”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have stayed here before and it was fine. This time we booked the Sonesta ES for 7 days. There was nothing on their site to indicate a remodeling project. When we arrived, there were several dumpsters around the perimeter. There was a sign on the front door saying that the check in was around the corner. They had shut the lobby down and were using a tiny office as the check in. When we made the reservation there was no mention that the entire hotel would be under construction at the same time. The front desk attendant was polite and apologetic but we refused to stay 7 days with who knows what noise the remodeling would produce. So at 5pm on a Sunday we sat in their parking lot trying to find a suitable place to stay. I'm sure once the renovation is complete it will again be fine to stay there but until then beware.

Looking for a place for extended stay, I feel comfortable and relaxing at Sonesta. The site is undergoing remodeling but the staff are very courteous in meeting customer's needs. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel uses a modern picture of Staybridge Suites, so your led to believe this is a upscale hotel, but its not. This is an small outdated motel.... more like an old apt complex. Unless there is nothing else available in Princeton, I would not stay there again.

Dear ta2travel, Thank you for taking the time to write your e-mail. I was surprised to read your description as we do not wish to be deceptive in any way shape or form. We converted from a Staybridge to a Sonesta ES Suites two years ago so the pictures of our property reflect the current state of our property, We are now undergoing renovations and should be completely renovated come Thanksgiving. Once we are done with the " re:imagination" of our property we will make sure we post new pictures of our renovated suites. We hope you will come and check out our new product on your next travels to the Princeton area. Make it a great day! Marcel

I stayed at Sonesta ES Suites for 60 days and overall I am very satisfied. You get a warm welcoming and the design of the suites make you feel at home. Complementary breakfasts and social hours (light dinners) are other reasons to stay here.

The best thing about the Sonesta Suites Princeton has to be the staff. All the staff we encountered during our stay were very friendly and welcoming. The hot breakfast that was served daily was good and had a variety of foods.

Dear Kathy M, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. For the next four months we will no longer offer our regular hot buffet breakfast due to renovations. We will have a grab-N-go breakfast available where you can take your breakfast items to your suite for consumption.

Stayed at Sonesta ES Suites for 6 nights whilst visiting my son. The 1-bedroom suite was clean, and suited our needs perfectly. The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was plentiful, and the pool was clean, it was also a great location for visiting NYC/DC. We didn't really see the staff much, as we were out and about quite a lot during our stay, but when we did have an issue with lots of kids still playing basketball at 11.30pm, we rang reception and they dealt with it promptly and effectively. We didn't have the pleasure of staying in one of the refurbed rooms, and they were still working on updating a block behind ours when we were there, but it certainly didn't impact on our stay. Would stay here again, but would prefer one of the upgraded rooms next time. All in all, a great stay.

I enjoyed our time here. We only stayed one night on my son's college visits. The staff was very friendly, the suite with two bedrooms was very nice. If you are looking for a very modern condo with granite countertops, this may not be the place for you. The decor of our suite was very 1980's, but I don't care. The suite was spacious and very clean. Staying in a clean accommodation is far more important to me than the style of the suite. I also felt that the place was safe which is also critical to me. I would stay there again.
