Close to Princeton

Posted Oct 24, 2016
My family and I stayed here on a visit to Princeton. Overall the hotel was very nice, and the room was clean & spacious. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because there was a strong smell of curry in the hallways. Fortunately our room was fresh and odor free, but as soon as we exited the room the smell was pretty potent throughout the main areas of the hotel.

Great Business Hotel

Pros: Kitchen, good space, convenient to shopping
Location: Easy access to food and shopping. Off of a busy highway but far enough away to block sounds.
In the heart of pharmaceutical company-rich New Jersey, this hotel is perfect for a business need. Suites are spacious and have kitchens, useful for short or long stays. Nothing really fancy but exactly what is needed for that business home away from home. If you have time, shopping is near by and plenty of close restaurant choices to match any food wishes.

Pros: The room has a kitchenette and breakfast is included.
Cons: The heater is our room was noisy but when the vent was adjusted it became quieter.
Location: There's plenty of shopping and restaurants on Route 1.
Overall, our experience was very pleasant. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was calm and quiet. And, there were plenty of options available at the breakfast buffet.

Room was very clean. Looks like they had just re modeled. Very quiet. I was here for s hockey tournament in Lawrenceville. Which was 10 minutes away. The shopping is great and you will not ever have problems finding a place to eat! Everything is right there! I will stY here again for sure!

The hotel was conveniently located next to the mall. However, not having an ATM on site was not a good experience. It was also very aggravating to be sent to the wrong address by the map & directions link from the Expedia Confirmation email.

Nice hotel. But no weekend shuttle

Pros: no weekend shuttle.
Cons: get a driver for weekend shuttle. we spent so much going to a short distance. each drop is 20.00. In one day we spend about $100 just for taxi.
Location: Just the shopping center. You can also take the train to New York.
I like the hotel and the service but the front desk receptionists are not familiar so much with the surroundings.

Very nice hotel. Convenient to local malls, even walking distance to one. Chain restaurants close by. Easy access to all things on route 1 and I 95. Hotel and rooms are clean. Breakfast was better than expected. Only minor complaints were queen bed not so comfortable and AC was a bit loud. (Central unit in closet). Would stay again and recommend to others.

The saucepans for cooking could be of much better quality to prevent foods from burning very easily and creating a problem with the alarms
