PRINCETON, NJ--(Marketwired - May 8, 2014) - Whether travelers are on the road for business or pleasure, the single most important feature of a hotel is undoubtedly the guest room. This, after all, is where visitors will catch up on work and relax at the end of the day, transforming this small corner of a foreign city into a home away from home. With this in mind, the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal recently underwent a three-month renovation of its guest rooms, junior suites and guest-room corridors to implement the right aesthetic and function that enable travelers to make the most of their time in the room.
Located on 25 acres of lush woodland, the property enjoys a natural advantage over other hotels near Princeton University, and its renovation sought to capitalize on that. As a result, the inspiration for the updated guest-room décor came from Mother Nature. Natural tones and organic textures sweep through each space, creating an atmosphere that is at once soothing, sophisticated and unique among hotels in Princeton, New Jersey. In the bathrooms, nature once again prevails via granite countertops and the naturally-inspired Thann bath products. And business guests will appreciate the nod to living as nature intended when they sit down in ergonomically designed desks and chairs.
While nature makes a worthy inspiration, it wisely defers to technology in some arenas. Entertainment, for example, is available in the 32-inch, flat-screen televisions as well as the state-of-the-art wireless Internet access. Convenience was just as important in this renovation, which is why headboards integrate LED reading lights, and every guest room is equipped with mini-refrigerators, coffeemakers and plenty of outlets for guests' electronic devices.
Other benefits of the renovation to this Princeton lodging include eight new Junior Suites, each of which is outfitted with a wet bar, living area, workspace, king bed and expansive bathroom featuring two sink areas. These sumptuous spaces complement the property's other attractive features, like its top-rated day spa, health club and indoor tennis courts, to secure its position as one of the finest luxury hotels in Princeton.
