Overview

Found on the opposite side of Carnegie Lake from downtown Princeton and within minutes of the area's Princeton University, this Westin branch is surrounded by the Forrestal Village shopping center, which puts travelers within walking distance of numerous stores and eateries. However, guests note that you shouldn't overlook the in-house restaurant, Parallel 40, which serves up hearty (albeit slightly pricey) dishes of global cuisine. Meanwhile, travelers describe the guest rooms here as some of the best in the area, praising the signature Heavenly Beds, clean decor, 24-hour room service and the pet-friendly environment. Also, family travelers note that the hotel pool was a big hit with the kids. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
