I really enjoyed this Residence Inn. It was very close to Princeton University, which was the main reason for our trip. It was also a short walk to a movie theater and numerous dining options There is a beautiful area to go for a run nearby along a river/canal. Room was nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. I...

I stay at a lot of Residence Inn's, and this one is above average. Exceptional location, right off of Rt 1 and walking distance to many good restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. The hotel decor was nice and modern, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a bit odd for a Residence Inn (kind of cramped, and could...

The property is looking dated, but everything is clean and the staff is friendly. They offer a shuttle bus service and large groups were taking advantage of it. Breakfast and evening offerings were on par with other RIs. I would not hesitate to stay here when business brings me back to Carnegie Center (directly across Rt. 1). It is about...

We were in town visiting family in the area, so just needed a comfortable place to sleep in between activities. When we arrived, the front desk staff were very friendly and provided an upgrade to a larger room with a fireplace - very much appreciated in cold weather. They were always friendly, greeting us and offering assistance whenever we came...

Room was clean and comfortable with one exception. The bathtub was terribly uneven, so much that it hold a pool of water in it, making it dangerous for those like myself with poor footing. The breakfast bar had the usual variety of food, scrambled eggs being dry and hard. Some of the seats in the lounge are in desperate need...

The staff during checkin was friendly and helpful! My stay was very good. I liked the fact of a full refrigerator, as I was able to do my food shopping at Wegmans and using both freezer and refrigerator at Residence Inn. I liked the proximity to Marketfair, as I walked over to Big Fish for a nice lunch and was...

This was my first visit to the area on business and I was very impressed with the size and layout of the room, the relatively quiet location despite being close to a shopping center and the great snacks (more like meals) offered in some evenings in the dining lounge area. It was a comfortable stay and a great value. I...

I travel to Princeton quite often and always choose to stay here. The staff are warm and friendly, and they recognize me when I come in the door. The outdoor patio is really nice. Relaxed out there with a glass of wine.

Surface level looks good but the cons add up. I have stayed here twice for business and always find customer service lacking. Also, there was candy dried and stuck to the carpet, the bathroom seems dirty and both times I stayed, my complimentary toiletries were mostly used. That seems nit picky but is frustrating to find as you are heading...
