The beds were the best part of our two day stay, as they were really comfortable! However, the pool was really gross! The water was murky when we arrived in the evening, and there was something solid and brown on the stairs. I immediately told someone at the front desk, who said they would take care of it right away....

Dear Patricia G I received your review today and immediately began an investigation into what might have happened. I believe you may have written about the wrong hotel. Our bar is tucked away on the far right of our hotel in its own separate room. You indicated that the bar of the hotel you stayed is right in front and...

This is a very nice, small hotel. They have very comfortable beds, linens, and pillows. The hotel is close to many good restaurants and to downtown Princeton. Very happy with our stay and I would stay there again!

I just love this unique hotel nestled in the woods off busy route 1 just north of Princeton. It is not your typical Marriott, more like a large resort lodge. This is because it was built as the Scandinavian inspired Scanticon Hotel. Those touches for the most part thankfully live on. If being close to Princeton or the University are...

We booked the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal for our girls' weekend getaway. We were looking for a place that had all of the amenities without having to leave and the Marriott was the perfect place for that. We arrived early on Saturday for our 10am spa services and the hotel already had our room ready which was a pleasant surprise....

After spending the 2 previous nights in a Hilton Garden Inn in Arlington that was fraught with a very noisy air conditioner, it was nice to sleep in a comfortable bed with a quiet AC unit. Although it turned out to be a necessary heater when snow started falling. I was greeted by a very polite front desk rep very...

LOVED IT HERE! What a refreshing change of pace from NYC! From the staff to the rooms/surrounding areas to the dining service/amenities, the Princeton Marriott offered an incredibly restorative stay for our family during a large group retreat. What a gem of a value too! PROS: 1) Family friendly! 2) Free shuttle service - We took the train from NYC...

I attended a wedding reception at this hotel about 20 years ago, and have been coming back every year to spend the night for leisure ever since! The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the hotel is clean, the staff are polite and friendly, and the Spa is amazing. I will continue to highly recommend to friends and family for a great...

WE only went from Saturday and left Sunday afternoon. Coming into the protected portion of the front of the building, I met Frantz. Speaks fluent french too. Couldn't be nicer. Some hotels have that fake, shallow "How are you doing"?. Frantz and his counterpart Larry, are sincere, quite knowledgeable about everything not only in the hotel proper but "would you...
