HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 February 2017 via mobile

Stayed in the Westin for a 3 day retreat. Rooms were clean, most comfortable beds and bedding I've ever slept on in a hotel I wanted to take it home. Checkin was easy and staff was kind. Walls were soundproofed well. Ballrooms were nice and large. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Only issue I had was with the ladies room...

The bed is extremely comfortable. The staff is friendly, especially the night bartender who is incredibly friendly and on point with service. This is the area that carries the hotel. Full service restaurant and a Starbucks counter. Close proximity to other restaurants in the area. The rooms are nice, good work area, plenty of plugs for devices but everything in...

Having to live in a hotel for work is never a great proposition. I have stayed at every corporate hotel in Princeton, and the Westin is by far the best. Service, friendliness and quality rooms / food has been a constant at the Westin. John the GM is highly visible and helpful. The bar / restaurant staff are great and...

This Westin is in a suburban spot in Princeton. It sort of reminded us of an open concept high school (our meeting room was in a building apart from the hotel). My room was fine and functional. Service was spotty with some associates being very helpful and others not so. Banquet food was fine. Agree with others this is a...

Was in town for a quick business trip. The associates were friendly and the room was clean (albeit a little rundown). Highly recommend! I also appreciated the great blackout curtains! I was also intrigued by the fitness offerings they had, although I did not have enough time to take advantage of them.

Shower did not work. Our extended family staying in adjacent room also experienced no shower and constantly running toilet which didn't flush. No discount offered by annoying front desk deflectors or absentee general manager. Our SPG membership status proved worthless. Plenty of better hotels in the vicinity for Princeton parents and alums: Hyatt Regency; Hyatt Place; Marriott at Forrestal. Take...

I've been organizing a dinner for 9 years and for the last 3 we have stayed at the Westin. They make the block reservations easy and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. I have always been able to check in early and when I had a question an answer was quickly provided.
