Rated 4 out of 5 by JLhaveford nice staff, good restaurant, everything works, tired rooms
We stay in this hotel almost every week as my husband is relocated to Princeton temporarily.
The hotel is at a convenient location. The executive lounge is convenient. The restaurant is surprisingly good but qualities are inconsistent.
Staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to be helpful, although not always successful.
Here's a good example about service at this hotel. I forgot my sonic toothbrush during one stay. When I called to ask, the cleaning crew actually turned it in to the office (great) so I told them I'd pick it up the following week. The following week came, the front desk knew nothing about it (not so great). After asking around, they said the manager had it in his office (great) but he was out. Several hours later I still did not have my toothbrush (not so great). Then they said they'd send someone to a drugstore to buy one for me (great). The drug store did not have it. So they promised they'd buy one and send it to my house. I indeed received a toothbrush a week later (great), except it was the wrong model: not only it was a cheaper model, it also uses a different brush head which means all my stocked brush heads are useless now. I still have to buy my own toothbrush which does not make me happy.
I was quite impressed that the staff tried hard to solve my problem, in particular actually did buy me a toothbrush. I very much appreciated the effort. On the other hand, my toothbrush should not have gotten lost in the manager's office to begin with, and the follow-up correction was not executed well and ended up costing me anyway.
The rooms are definitely below average in SPG hotels. They are functional, but they are dirty (stains on carpets and walls). I have not had one room without at least one fly. Heating system is bad: noisy; no way to turn it off; and worst of all, does not heat up the room effectively. It really gets cold in the room. Sheets and towels are adequate but they are not quality items.

We booked this hotel when we lost power at our home. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff so nice. We brought our small dog and they were all quite accommodating! We plan on coming back just for a nice getaway!!!

I come here almost every week. The staff is personable, responsive and attentive.
The other week while it was snowing, I caught Chris running through the parking lot like a maniac. I thought it was a strange thing to do. But then when I got to my truck, I realized the snow had been brushed off. After looking around to see who may have done it, I realize that all of the cars had the snow brushed off!
Its the little things like this that make the difference, and keep me coming to Westin instead of any of their competitors nearby.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Weary53 The hotel would not extend my stay. Very disappointing
All flights were cancelled yet the hotel would not extend my stay. Luckily I found a room down the road. Very poor response from a hotel for a person who travels weekly and needs to know they can find a place to stay when the weather gets ugly

Rated 2 out of 5 by DanBusinessTraveler Rooms needs need to be checked
1. Drain on shower was very clogged (tub filled with water -- disgusting)
2. Heat did not seem to work. I woke up very cold in the middle of the night & turned it up to 76 degrees then woke up still freezing in the morning.
3. This was the second room I was given. The first room had been smoked in recently & still smelled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adam Consistently Great !
My wife and I have stayed at the hotel many times. We come to Princeton to enjoy a weekend together and to relax.
As a Lifetime Platinum member, I've stayed at many hotels. As such, I am well qualified to make an assessment of this property.
The staff at this hotel is "FIRST RATE." They are all focused on the guest experience. From the moment you pull up in front of the hotel, you are greeted by the bell hop. The front desk folks acknowledge you quickly. There has never been a wait and, on this past occasion, they recognized us as we approached the front desk by name. This type of service does not happen by accident. It's the result of hiring the right people who actually care about their guests.
The rooms are well decorated. The entire hotel is clean and the location is ideal. If you are looking for a weekend with the person you love or you have a business requirement to be in the area, this is a great choice in hotels !!
