Nassau Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room should be updated especially the bathroom. The room was quite roomy for 3 adults.

Best hotel for visiting Princeton university. Very good location. Facilities are old but well maintained.

It's a very classic and very comfortable hotel. The hotel is like home and staff is like friend for many years.

It is a good business hotel in the center of Princeton.

The "fitness center" was a joke. It was a small room with one treadmill and a static bike. Also, you could hear the noise from the streets at night. Definitely overpriced for what it offers.

We picked this hotel despite a few cheaper options because of the convenient location on our visit to Princeton. I'm glad we did. Our stay was short so the lack of amenities was not particularly important. The location is great with nearby restaurants, stores, and access to the Princeton Campus. I would recommend staying here if you want to get a good sense of the surrounding town and environment.

It was a last minute reservation. We arrived late and they saved the last room for us about midnight. The hotel stuff asks if we had a car and I said yes. We got a parking paper but in the following morning when we checked out it turned out they were going to charge $21 for parking. I don't mind it but the hotel stuff didn't explain 1st or we would not have accept the parking paper at all. There was no free internet in the hotel which is very inconvenient.

It was a perfect getaway from Mother's Day. Felt like we were on vacation in a faraway place but it was really in our own backyard.

Very convenient for campus tours and walking around Princeton. Overnight parking, although convenient, was quite expensive. Charming tavern at the Inn, steeped in Princeton tradition.

Perfect location. Parking Ok in nearby facility. Tap Room restaurant surprisingly good food.

This is the prime location for exploring the beautiful Princeton campus and the charming adjacent town, because you can just pop back to the room for a little rest between a trip to the U Store to stock up on sweatshirts and your Orange Key tour of campus. The hotel is cozy rather than grand, but you can feel the history, which is key to the Princeton experience. The rooms were comfortable, and I really enjoyed relaxing in bed watching the big TV. Make sure to take the special lane past The Alchemist and Barrister from Witherspoon Street to the lobby entrance--it makes you feel like an insider! The new wing has larger rooms, the historic wing has more charm. If you have a car, there are more economical places to stay, but I love to treat myself to the Nassau Inn.

The Nassau Inn has been Princeton's best bet west of Nassau Street for more than a century.

I only spent one night here; the room was clean and comfortable and the service was good; the restaurant served a pretty nice breakfast (the only meal I tried there). The hotel is in a beautiful setting just off the Princeton campus; my only slightly nitpicky complaint is that the grand/beautiful entrance is blocked off, and to get in (at least late at night when I did) you have to go around to a streetside entrance under a tunnel - a bit confusing and not so beautiful. But overall, a perfectly decent if unexceptional hotel in a fantastic location if you're doing anything Princeton-related.

We found the hotel perfectly situated for our purpose. The front desk staff only moderately well informed, the food in the Yankee Doodle room indifferent.

Check in and check out were good. There were 2 weddings at the Inn that weekend. I love to see the bride and flowers and there were many opportunities. Because of the volume of guests we waited for things elvators, food but can't beat being right in the Center of towm.

the rooms are incredibly small, and the beds are incredibly small----so small that it doesn't really work for a couple. it would work for one person, but not two

It was a pleasure to meet some people that staying the hotel, have distinctive features: warm families, cool women, businesmen etc. There were a lot of dining and shopping choices near the hotel. The big college is at walking distance.

Historic hotel - very pleasant and competitive pricewise with out of town hotels, but much nicer to stay in town.

We went to visit our daughter at Princeton University. The hotel's location was excellent. The room was very small, room service vas average, while its price was more than average.

Great location, complamantary morning and evening coffee and tea, clean rooms are positive prospects for me. Wireless was sometimes slow and not connected and my international cell phone frequently suffer from low signal.
