The surrounding nature was very nice especially in the morning. the rooms were clean and elegant, and beds very very comfortable. The indoor pool was a plus. My kids enjoyed it very much.

I stayed here overnight for a business trip, and I was put into a very strange room that appeared to have been converted from something else. It had a small sink in the entry way that led into a triangular room with a murphy bed. It then had a strange space near the bathroom, which was different, as well. Hard...

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...
