Staff was lovely but a few were trying too hard to be friendly and courteous, over emphasizing an interest "How was your day, Are you having a good time?" etc. Business travelers may not want to engage in friendly banter early in the morning or late at night. Try to "read the room" a little better.

Upon arriving we asked which ice machine worked as the one by our room was broken. Come to find out they were all broken. Also the fire pit in the courtyard was broken. And our bathtub was broken. It wouldn’t plug to stop the water. The thermostat was also broken in the room. Luckily maintenance was able to fix the part on the tub but why should we have to do that at 9pm when we are trying to bathe and go to bed. Very outdated and needs updated. The beds were super springy sounding and very uncomfortable. Felt almost like sleeping on the floor. My entire family got no sleep. The workers were very kind and polite and this is not their fault, it is on the owners. They need to update the hotel and make improvements. It’s 2023 and for the money we are spending on a hotel, it should feel like home away from home. This felt like we were camping. I am 6 foot 7 and the shower head was spraying me in the stomach. I had to almost take a knee to get water on my head. When I was standing in the shower my head was about 2-3 inches from the ceiling. My wife stayed at the courtyard by Marriott in Savannah GA several years ago and it was the most amazing hotel in the world. I thought the chain would follow suit with the super comfortable beds and updated rooms but I was wrong. I will go back to the courtyard in Savannah. Never again in Princeton. I rate this hotel a 2 overall only because the staff was friendly, helpful and they fixed the bathtub in a timely manner.

This is a Marriott Courtyard, and typical of that line of hotels. The property is well maintained, although the decor and furnishings seem dated (e.g. - few USB ports in rooms). The staff is wonderful -- friendly, helpful, and efficient. One important thing to keep in mind when booking is that rooms facing NJ Route 1 are VERY noisy, even late at night the truck traffic makes sleep impossible. Always ask for a room facing the courtyard.
