Review Princeton Marriott at Forrestal

Review Princeton Marriott at Forrestal

Its not a tourist destination by any means but I’ve managed to find myself in the Princeton area on two occasions within months of one another and enjoyed staying at this unique property both times. Tucked away among trees in a commercial area, it caters to the business crowd typically traveling in the Us route One corridor. Rooms rates on weekends are particularly good.

Princeton Marriott Forrestal LobbyIt’s unique alpine lodge design seems a bit out of place in the middle of NJ, far away from any ski resorts but it’s this architectural anomaly that made me return the lobby is large with lots of wood and an inglenook fireplace area to one side offers a nice conversation area.

The friendly gathering place in the bar/lounge offers a limited menu of foods that a patron looking for a smaller meal can enjoy. On one occasion we thoroughly enjoyed a pepper and onion quesadilla and a tasty serving of meatballs on another. There is also a full service restaurant on premises. As a Marriott elite status holder we enjoyed a moderate complimentary breakfast in the private concierge lounge. Arrive early, it gets crowded quickly even on weekends.

There’s nothing in particular to recommend the guests rooms themselves, reliable compact clean with comfortable beds and the corridors to access them seem endless. The main lobby area is where this resort excels.

The spa and pool were not part of our visit but others were enjoying the private event facilities which were quite crowded during on of our visits.

Overall I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here if you are passing through the area but it is by no means a destination location unless you are local and need a space for your private party/event.
