my so & i planned a fun filled weekend 10/18-10/10/20 w/many activities & events in the princeton area.
we checked in & were in our room by 310pm. w/in the first 5 minutes i inspected the room & called the front desk w/the following issues; no fitted sheet on bed, no top sheet on bed, all walls had scuff marks everywhere, brown stain on rug, no bath mat, pull out couch w/brown stained mattress on 1/3 of it. maintenence came to remove the mattress pad although i wanted a new couch instead, housekeeping came to resolve sheet issue although they don't have fitted sheets, she, nicole then proceeded to "clean" brown stain on rug w/water and my personal napkins!!!! i did comment that, i did not consider that a cleaning. after all a brown stain means chocolate, mud and/or feces!!!!! i then ran to the lobby to buy cleaning supplies for all light switches had brown/black marks on them. i then washed all remotes w/dish detergent, a scrub brush i brought, antiseptic and an old clean
Though located on Route 1, we felt we were in a peaceful location. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect; both rooms had their own bath and their own TV. The kitchen had a full-sized refrigerator and large stove. There was a fitness center and a basketball court. The breakfast had a variety of choices and all were excellent. This Sonesta would be my first choice whenever I'm in the Princeton area.
