There were some good points but mainly disappointing one! Let start with the good.... The TV was a big flat screen, the bed was very comfortable and the granite around the tub was nice. Now for the not so good, the room was small and had average furnishings, the view from our room window was terrible and the front desk...

A very nice and upscale Marriott. I required the use of their business center as well as a scanning device for documents. The front desk was great to work with as they had to scan several documents. I arrived late and after checking in went directly to the concierge lounge for some food. They were getting ready to l

Dear Matthew L. Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Princeton Marriott. I am happy to hear that our front desk agents were helpful in assisting you with your scanning needs.

This hotel deserves top recognition! The service is stellar, staff is friendly and that lovely scent throughout the hotel...it is as if I could eat and nibble on it, yummy! Anyway, I have nothing bad to say. Note, the hotel has not been recently renovated but is still excellent. As a Platinum Elite, I get lots of upgrades and love...

A great place to get away from it all. This low-rise hotel is spread across a wide swath of land that affords nice views of trees, paths, and the great outdoors. It was fall foliage season when we were there - and it couldn't be beat. Hospitable staff, comfortable rooms, and food amenities. It's conducive as a quasi-meeting/convention space, so...

Comfortable meeting rooms and really great food! I've been to many conferences in many hotels and this place really does a great job. The hotel is conveniently located right off of Rt. 1, but set back in a lovely wooded area that makes it hard to believe that the highway is so close. Hotel staff were really nice and helpful...

We stayed over the weekend and found this hotel to be exceed our expectations. The service was exceptional with all staff greeting us when passing. The concierge lounge was well appointed and the hostess was helpful. The hotel's setting was peaceful and beautiful, with walking/jogging paths around the property. While my husband and I didn't get an opportunity to try...

We love the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal. Its a perfect way to escape the busy city and spend some quiet time either at the Spa, walking the grounds or visiting downtown Princeton with its stores and cafes. Staff is very friendly and the hotel has a great pool/hot pool and a gym. Its best to drive, but you can always...

This hotel is noisy. Do not stay in room 1414. Not sure why all the noise at night and the lack of consideration from others. The concierge room is directly across from 1414 and the constant door closing was ridiculous. The people going in and out began well before 0700. They need to get a new latch system or leave...

I’ve been to many Marriott hotels and many spas. One of the reasons that I visit the Princeton Marriott twice a year is because of Ken in the Spa!

This place is all about the grounds / property. The entrance is quite grand. The rolling brick hardscape feels like the more historic areas of Princeton, NJ. The building itself feels like a higher end lodge with all of the dark wood and exposed beams. The highlights of my stay were the awesome indoor pool / spa and breakfast at...
