“Excellent hotel - will stay again”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I travel to New York and New Jersey several times a year on business but typically stay closer to our offices near Hamilton train station. I stay at Marriotts when possible, so stayed here when others were booked. I don't rent a car b/c the train is convenient to Hamilton and NY Penn. The hotel shuttle has a short radius (3 or 6 miles?), but Princeton Junction station is within--shuttle took me to/from station every day. I had to extend my stay and thus had to shop for clothes--afternoon driver took me to Kohl's and picked me up. So nice!! Room and bathroom was spacious with ample outlets and a refrigerator. Bed was firm and I prefer soft--that's the only downside. Starbucks coffee and full bar available at the mini-restaurant in the lobby--pizza and hummus was yummy. Ruby Tuesdays in walking distance. Fitness center has 2 or 3 treadmills--never had a problem getting one. Walking trail not too far from hotel is huge bonus! But what sets this hotel apart is staff. To say that they're friendly and accommodating is an understatement. They remember you and ask questions based on previous conversations. It was literally like arriving home each evening. I will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: One elevator serves 3 floors. If you don't mind stairs, room by stairs is very convenient to wal...

Every staff encountered initated a greeting with a smile. Nice lobby and very well lit hallway. The path to room felt like a service apartment. Room was slight small - but well balanced furnishing made it just right. Bathroom was spotless. Had a balcony too - but furnishing was covered with layers of dust. Wish they couldve attended to that as well. Very comfy bed. Location of hotel right on Route 1... so you hear cars passing by...but it doesn't bother me. If so - ask for even number rooms which faces other side. Only disappointment was no whirlpool especially since they advertised it. They used to - but covered it with tiles. Also - no complimentart coffee in lobby...though the bistro comp me a starbucks coffee. YES - I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night while college visiting. It is just a few minutes from the University, clean, quiet and there are many food options within a few miles. There is a Ruby Tuesdays next door but we ventured further down the road and ate a delicious meal at Big Fish Restaurant

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the garden so it was quiet.

Our family stayed here during the 2014 Special Olympics National Games. We were greeted immediately upon arriving by all the staff with smiles and good evenings. In the morning, we ate fresh-cooked breakfast each day--enjoying eggs, toast, bacon, and coffee. We watched as they held a staff meeting every morning at 10:30 a.m to congratulate a job well done and talk about what still needed to be done. The beds are very soft and comfortable, and we were able to turn the thermostat down to the perfect temperature at night. The hotel is clean, and the employees are very friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again.

We stayed here at the suggestion of our friends in Princeton. The hotel was easy to find at 11:30 PM. Our flights had been delayed 7.5 hours, and Jay greeted us so warmly that we instantly felt relaxed.
Our sole disappointment was the hot tub is gone. It is not listed in the hotel amenities, but is still in some online photos. I did use the pool.
The room was comfortable & clean. Our room overlooked the courtyard, which was nice.
Breakfast was good both days.
We overheard the staff telling each other about needs several times, such as when another employee appeared to assist with the breakfast orders, busing the dining area, and cleaning the halls. They were always polite, low key, and informative. It enhanced the welcoming atmosphere.
We were also impressed with the Princeton area, Scenic & historic.

The staff is first class, five star. They went way above the norm to make sure our stay was perfect. The front desk staff and manager were very professional and super friendly. The maid service was outstanding. Rooms were clean and met our needs. The food was also very good. We had a 7 night stay and all 7 were perfect. Great job team.
