Perfect location to explore charming Princeton. Hotel is getting slightly dated but is still very nice. Customer service is superb. Beds are VERY comfy. Parking is ample convenient and best of all free.

This hotel looks nice on the outside. The reception was fine too. The corridor carpet on fourth floor is badly stained, dry wall chipped in some places. The room has unpleasant smell. Kept the fan on, hoping to clear the smell. The fan was very noisy. Could not sleep with the noisy fan on in the room.

The hotel is relaxing and quiet. The shops and restaurant close by are great, especially with a Ruth Chris' in walking distance! The rooms are clean and relatively new and the service at the hotel bar on lobby level is great.

I stayed in this hotel for two weeks. Pluses: Good comfortable room and bed. Good restaurant (with healthy options) and good location. Minuses: Coffee shop open for a limited time. When it closes no options for a cup of coffee (except for in-room coffee maker). Some of the staff no considerate. I was sitting on one morning in the lobby...

I checked in anticipating staying three night because I was there for a friend's birthday celebration. The bed was so comfortable and the room was so quiet that I extended my stay another day. The bathroom had a rain shower head which was nice. All of the employees I came in contact with were quite friendly. The NY Times and...

Stayed one night while in town for a family function. The Forrestal name threw me a bit as I though the hotel would be in the woods! It's not. It's on route 1 connected to an outside mall or office park or maybe both. Despite misperceptions we enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff is very friendly - later in...

I'm sitting in the hotel lobby trying to read a newspaper but cannot as there is a group of 4 staff members standing around the check-in desk having a loud social conversation for the last 20 minutes, including loudly discussing issues they've had with other guests.

We stayed for one night in September, got a really good deal on Priceline. Firstly the hotel isn't run by Westin but by a subsidiary as the note suggests at the check in counter.
