My stay at the Princeton Marriott is always good, however this particular trip was great! For starters, Michael at the front desk always remembers me and greets me accordingly. This property really made me feel like they appreciated my loyalty to Marriott. As a Platinum Premier they rolled out the red carpet for me to assure that I had a...

I went for a shellac manicure, spa pedicure and eye wax. It was very disappointing. I was the only customer for 3 hours, the pedicure was very average considering it was meant to be a spa pedicure and the Shellac manicure was awful. The worst I have ever had. No manicure, no pushing or removing cuticles. The polish color I...

This has to be one of the best hotel experiences I ever had. Tucked away in the woods off Route 1 its like no other hotel I have ever stayed at. The design and lay out of the hotel is unique in so many ways. The long lobby and the wooden décor makes it feel like you are in a...

The forrest location is very nice, and it's an easy place to run from if you like to run. The food provided by the restaurant (buffet for a conference group) was very good,...
