I found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and accomodating to all my requests. I particularly like the workout feature of borrowing sneakers. First time using it and it was a great feature!

Another lovely stay at the Westin Princeton.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and the facility is top notch. The mums outside were a fabulous fall touch. We will be back....

Excellent hotel in every way, especially for the price, & especially when compared to others in the area & after paying for hotels in NY & Boston. Truly heavenly shower as well!

This facility has always been my first choice when visiting the Princeton area for business. 40 degrees is a great restaurant in house or many choices within walking distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tigerfan1 Best in the area
We need to be in this area often and find the Westin the cleanest around. The staff is very friendly and ready to help with any issues. We will be back in a few weeks!

A lovely facility in a great area at a really good price. The only thing lacking was the "grab and go" breakfast-- pretty skimpy even when not picked over.

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 4 out of 5 by Mike Very Pleasant Stay
I had stayed at this property previously and was very satisfied with my previous stay. I had business near the hotel and wanted to stay at a Starwood property. I wasn't disappointed this time around. However, a couple of notes: 1) according to the front desk staff, the hotel is in the process of converting the Presidential Suite into an Executive Lounge for Platinum members. An EXCELLENT improvement over their current "lounge in a closet". 2) apparently some of those renovation activities occur before 7:00 am. So if your are in a room near the future lounge, be prepared for some early morning hammering and general banging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BrokenWires Generally fine, but inconsistent
In general the hotel was in good condition which made me surprised when I discovered the wired internet cable didn't work. Upon investigating a found a jumble of disorganized cables under the desk and a broken socket in the wall. Luckily I was able to switch to the wireless instead of waiting.
Service at the hotel bar was sometimes good and sometime disinterested. I found that strange and I mentioned to the manager on duty that it was difficult to order at the bar and he also was disinterested. Oddly, another employee readily helped the situation despite his poor manager.
I liked that health food options were available but my fish was overdone and dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by beachbumra Not what you would think of a westin
Just stayed in this hotel last Friday night with my wife on may10th for her birthday. Everything seemed to be a nice hotel but when we got into the room the frige still had stuff in it from someone else and the bathroom wasn't that clean.
The kicker is the walls are paper thin! Yes you could hear a person do everything. Me and my were rudely woken up at 6am on a Saturday from a persons tv next door. My wife spoke to the front desk that morning checking out and promised her 1000 points for our inconvenience but they haven't done it. I hate hotels that promise but never deliver. This hotel isn't worth the overall money of a westin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BikingJunkie Barking dog
We checked in early hoping to take a nap before heading out to our New Year's Eve plans. Unfortunately, there was a barking dog somewhere on our floor. I spoke to the front desk but was told they couldn't do anything about it because I didn't know what room the dog was in (was I supposed to wander to floor listening at doors?!?!)
I was also disappointed to have been put in a room directly across the hall from the ice machine.
Overall the room did what we needed it to do. It wasn't anything special, but it also wasn't so bad that I won't stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDJames The perfect boutique hotel experience.
We had an event in Princeton and chose to stay at the Westin along with 17 of our guests for a long weekend. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff is extraordinary. They made us all feel very very welcomed. Any time our organization has an event in Princeton, the Westin at Forestall is our first choice for accommodations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by seriousrower nice folks, poor food
This Westin serves business travelers and we arrived Friday at 5 pm, just in time for the arrival of hundreds of mini-cheerleaders. Hectic scene, front desk was not staffed to handle crowd. They did well to get us checked in. Enjoyed coffee in the room Sat morning but on Sunday there were no cups and no coffee. Housekeeping slip-up. So we went
to Breakfast and were very disappointed. No menu choices, only a buffet of cold eggs and rock hard french toast. The table was so unstable that everything spilled when we tried to cut through the toast--steak knives might have helped. Probably not the experience Westin wanted us to have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ibgr This hotel is falling apart
this was the rattiest, dirtiest, lowest maintained Westin I have ever stayed in. the room was filthy. The towels and bedding were old and worn out. the towel rack fell off the wall. There was a water drip noise in the wall that started at 2 am and kept us up all night. The elevators were shaking and creaking and felt like they were held together with duct tape. Our concierge floor key didnt work in the elevator. we had to switch keys twice. At check out i asked to speak with a manager, but none was available so i left my business card and asked to be called on my cell phone to discuss this. i never received a call. You suck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nome helpful and attentive staff
I checked into this hotel on a Wednesday night after a hard travel day. The front desk staff was friendly, understanding and very calming after my drive from Newark airport. They helped me get a table and service in the restaurant and when I checked out the next morning the front desk staff was again on duty and remembered me. Your staff is to be commended for attention and service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pton32 Great hotel
We have stayed at this hotel for the past 3 years over the holidays, and we love it. The bed is so comfortable, the staff was very helpful. We will continue to stay there over the holidays in the coming years. However, this year, we did not realize that declining the linen and towel service also meant declining housekeeping. We did not like that very much. The housekeepers should still tidy up the room, empty the trash and clean the room, even if you go green. The $5 coupon did not seem worth it. But otherwise, it's a great hotel. The workout room is adequate. The pool is wonderful. It's a very pleasant hotel.
