Rated 4 out of 5 by Ctrandm Great stay
Although it was a great stay, the room was very dusty when we arrived and our only problem was the room next to us decided to pull an all nighter. We were next to a presidential suite and there were people coming in and out all night. I guess I should of called the front desk, but I was hoping that they would go to sleep but never did.

Overall the staff is excellent. From Thierry and the rest of the front desk staff to Ricardo at the bar. I always feel welcome at the Westin.
The only thing that I would like to see changed is for a pullup bar/dip station combo added to the gym as well as a rowing machine, stairmaster and or spin bike added to the gym.

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

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!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by June64 Room service
The breakfast room service did not arrive; I called and a maintenance person delivered the food about 10 minutes later. The oatmeal was cold with a film on the top as though it had sat for a long time.
This type of service doesn't fit the rest of the hotel, which is excellent and the front desk staff were very pleasant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mwills My stay experience
My stay was overall very good. That being said there are areas for inprovement. I requested a microwave and received one after my second request. However, when I tried to use it the door would not open. I was impressed with the way the hotel responded to storm victims and the way they made accomadations for their pets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NJTurnpike Great location, but...
Perfectly located, and the staff was quite nice/helpful, but our stay was marred by a series of small problems. There was no hot water, one of the two rooms we reserved was not made up after the first day, the lobby Starbucks was closed, and they burned a breakfast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by COACHRON AVOID THE 2ND FLOOR
I'M NOT SURE HOW CROWDED THE HOTEL WAS WHEN I STAYED BUT THEY PUT US ON THE SECOND FLOOR NEXT TO THE CONFERENCE ROOMS AND THEIR NEW WORKOUT CENTER. WE HAD ASKED FOR A LATE CHECK OUT AS WAS PART OF OUR PACKAGE BUT LEFT EARLY BECAUSE OF THE NOISE AND WE DID NOT WANT TO SWITCH ROOMS AT THAT TIME.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JessP Worst night ever
Sheets felt like sand paper.
Maid walked in on me and my husband.
wedding party was in the hallway making noise from midnight to 3am.
the shower had mold stains.
overcharged on room service.
good points: Lynn was very courteous. We did get our room comped. But it was wasn't enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MickiZ Very Disapointing
We were very disapointed at this hotel. Our room had paint pealing off the ceiling in the bathroom, black mold in the corner of the tub by the floor, thin walls so heard neighbors. The wallpaper in the main room was stained and pealing in areas. The parking area far from front desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JR17 The hotel is in a great location and has very nice public areas
The hotel was more "fancy" than I expected. The lobby area was great and if the weather was warmer I would have taken advantage of the terrace outside the lobby. While I didn't really get any recognition for being a Starwood Preferred Guest, I was treated very well.

Came to the Westin Princeton for a "get away" and also to go to a family wedding. It was the 4th of July weekend and the staff was ALWAYS VERY HELPFUL in any questions I had or suggestions on how to get from one place to the other. GREAT STAFF and WONDERFUL WESTIN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by basa24 This hotel has splendid features.
Our suite was spacious, well equipped and well lit. We also enjoyed the bed and the pillows. The people at the front desk were nice and helpful, but the safe proved to to be unreliable.
The toilet also didn't flush well, bec. of the poor water pressure.

Just wanted to say thank you to a great staff at the Princeton Westin. Thierry at the front desk and Ricardo and Mo in the lounge were wonderful. They greeted me by name every day and provided exceptional service during my stay! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tpwmd Great; except
Awakened @ 2 am by very loud and drunken shouting. I had to get up @ 3:15 anyway, but other guests were bothered. I heard knocking on the door where all the noise was coming from and a request to hold down the noise from another guest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by John1111 The room was in poor condition
The hotel room had an extremely musty smell as soon as you walked in and none of the windows would open. The window frame was covered in mold. The robe was all dirty and the screws for the blinds were falling out of the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WineAdvisoryGroup Nice Option for the Area
This is a nice hotel if you're in the region. Good service, rooms are basic, not very large... not many suites. Never have received an upgrade. Restaurant not very exciting but there's a few good options within 2 or 3 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by moly102011 great comfort of bed
I want to buy the bed I slept in on Saturday night .
Your staff was universally competent and also fun to be with.
My request to buy the bed was hyperbolic. I just meant to say that I got a great night’s sleep. .

From the moment me and my family stepped into the hotel, the staff was friendly and very helpful. Always made eye contact and made a point to say hello.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hiking4ever Any further away!
Even though I am an SPG member I had the room that was furthest away from everything. It was quicker for me to go out the fire escape and come back in the bar area than walk to the elevator.

Bathroom area a little on the small side... with the door open, was difficult to get into the closet and use the sink. Would be much better with a pocket door.

Staff makes this hotel worth staying in. Hotel itself is average. Bathroom shows wear and could use a redo, sound proofing and lighting are both terrible.

Rated 3 out of 5 Good hotel, poor execution
Stayed at the Princeton Westin just before hurricane Sandy. This is our second stay, came to visit our daughter at Princeton. This hotel has all the makings to be a very good hotel, but the staff execution and management planning was obviously lacking. We were given access to the free coffee and continental breakfast on the 6th floor. There were no signs directing us to it when we exited the elevator. When we found it, it turned out to be no bigger than a closet, 5 woman in bathrobes completely filled the room, they proceeded to touch every piece of food, then broke the coffee machine. Went downstairs to the coffee bar and paid for two coffees. When we returned from our day at Princeton at 6 PM, the room had not been cleaned. Upon inquiry, they responded that we had put out our "green" card on the door – not true. So, we were invited to wait in the bar and receive a free drink. The only waiter, ignored us and only provided drinks after the front desk intervened upon our request.
All of these issues could easily be solved with better management planning and execution. We'll come back, but our expectations are significantly lower.

Overall, the experience was excellent. In the room, there was no hand soap which seemed odd, though they did provide bath gel. Otherwise, all was fine.
