Checked in, sent to a room, which was freezing with no heat possible. Changed rooms. Second room, the same. Changed rooms. Third time, no charm, I was exhausted and just stayed, and wore MY COAT until it was time for bed...called downstairs, and the guy (not the woman who sent me to three rooms) said..."Oh, they probably didn't turn the heat on yet. My room had to be 60 degrees, and I did shut off the AC, but still....

Apparently there was a mal function with their fire alarm system. It went off at 1:30am, then again around 7:30am. Rather annoying! I would Lso like to see better (more) lighting in the parking lot. I had to park rather far from the hotel due to an event and it was very creepy!

Dear Guest, Thank you for the time and your genuine input as our Loyal Customer! We deeply apologize for the inconvenience due to the fire alarm getting off at 1 am and 7:30 am. Safety of our guests is our top priority and fire alarm (which is beyond the Hotel's control) can't be silenced till its cause is to be determined. Once again, we bring our deepest apologies and sincerely hope that it won't deter you from staying with us in the future! Wishing you safe travels and hope to be welcoming you back! Sincerely, Emma and Your Westin Princeton Team

It was not clear during the booking phase that Westin charges a nonrefundable $100 pet fee at check-in. I have never booked a hotel that listed as “pet friendly“ charge this way. It was a big shock when I checked in. When I complained, they lowered the pet fee to $50 and upgraded my room, which I appreciated, but I don’t think their basic pet fee policy is good.

Dear Traveler, Thank you for your loyalty, business and choosing the Westin Princeton as your base away from home! We are sorry you were disappointed by the pet fee. Please be advised that Marriott hotels (which is made up of more than 30 hotel brands) definitely has a lot of pet friendly hotels. Most of their pet policies (within each brand) vary from property to property. Some properties's pet fees are as high as $250, while others are only $50. Typically those fees are ranging from $75 to a $100. Our hotel charges $100 non-refundable sanitation (clean up) fee to keep a pet in your room. Most of the hotels also impose pet weight restrictions (usually from 30 lb to 125 lb). Once again, we bring our apologies for misunderstanding and hope that this instance won't deter you from staying with us in the future and will be looking forward to welcoming you back! Wishing you safe travels and hope your week is off to a great start! Sincerely, Emma and Your Westin Princeton Teams

The staff at this hotel were magnificent as were the amenities. However, be sure and put the do not disturb sign on your door or housekeeping will be aggravating you.

A pleasant, clean and comfortable stay!! Good value for the money!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, heavenly shower, westin heavenly bed
I live relatively locally and stayed here both to get away for the weekend and to learn whether I might recommend this hotel to visiting friends and relatives. I definitely would not have any problems sending my friends and loved ones to this property. The Heavenly Shower was amazing and the bed was clean, soft, and had a large selection of pillows. The front desk staff accommodated my request to be in a quiet corner of the building, and also comped my internet access. Any maintenance issues in the room were very minor. I would have liked it if the rooms had a listing of the available tv channels, which is commonly seen in hotels. I also would have liked to see a comment card in the room to let them know about the maintenance issues.
