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...

Enjoyed a terrific relaxing spa vacation here with my sister and niece. We couldn't have had a better time. Starting with Anthony's friendly greeting when we arrived. And delicious hot chocolate in the lobby.

We have enjoyed a few stays at this location. The hotel is in a great location, short drive to Princeton and about 45 min from Newark International. 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,...

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We love our location too. Being so close to Downtown Princeton, the airports, and even the train that takes you into Manhattan allows for so much flexibility. It's a great location tucked into the woods. We look forward to your return either for business or pleasure.

We recently visited Princeton and chose to stay at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, The following are our impressions of the property: 1. The hotel is situated in a nice, wooded campus setting. 2. Plenty of free parking. Not far from train station (about a 10 minute drive) 3. Atypical Marriott design (only 3 levels and is more spread out)....

One of the rare reviews for me as I'm confused how to rate it.
