June 17 (Day 48) DC-New Market, MD-Annapolis, MD We were supposed to travel to New Market for an overnight stay at a small antiquing town northwest of Baltimore, as we drove north from DC, the rains began to fall more steadily and the prospect of a rainy day trapped in a small B&B with nothing but antique shops nearby sounded less appealing, so …

Michael's residence hall is called Whitherspoon. After two years, Michael will move into upperclass housing on campus, but he will still be a member of Rockefeller.

After a great night's sleep (love the Heavenly Bed), we met Sean and Elly downstairs and headed to PJ's Pancakes, which is near Princeton University. It was a lovely area, and the pancakes and breakfast was fantastic.
After breakfast, Elly and Sean indulged me by swinging by Vahlsing Way (once I saw a sign for Robbinsville, I remembered that we were close). We took a few pictures, and then we were on our way home.
... of Pennsylvania’s Archeology and Anthropology Museum. As rumor has it, here rests the skull of Alexander Pearce. Okay, you might ask - what is so interesting about this dude? Well... he was an Irish convict for the theft of six pairs of shoes and was transported to a penal colony in Western Tasmania, Australia in the early 1800s. Still... what so special about this dude then? Alexander Pearce was known for his confession to cannibalism during his ...

Kat and I were left at Grandma's to entertain of ourselves, so we got a pizza and salad delivered for dinner and had some beers and caught up on all the stuff that has been going on in the 5 or so years it had been since we have actually seen each other. It was a great night, esp to just hang out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nassau Inn Princeton
Great Inn; curteous and professional staff; delicious hot cookies and evening beverages. Wonderful restaurant - Albert Einstein's table is a must-see.
Great Place, friendly staff
What a place, and the staff, especially the bellman jeff - just great people who go out of their way to help
The Nassau Inn is in a great location - right across the street from Princeton campus and lots to do just stepping outside - shopping dining, just exploring. Definitely the place to stay if you are going to a function at Princeton University as all other hotels are up and down the highway and a drive. However, we rented three rooms there - a suite, which was nice, but only one tiny window, and the bathoom floor was not the cleanest - I broke a glass and it was never swept up, so you know they don't sweep or mop regularly. The second room was too small, probably the minimum the fire department allows, I think it used to be a storage closet, and very hot, but they charge the same ($199 night) as they did for the third room, one with two beds that was okay.
If it weren't for the location this hotel would have no business. They are doing their utmost to DISsatisfy their customers.
It depends on the room
This hotel was built over the years, although the amenities are all up to date. Your stay can depend on what room you get. Ask for the "new wing" for roomier space.
For location, this hotel cannot be beaten - right in the heart of Palmer Square, within walking distance of the shops and the University. But the hotel has clearly seen better days and is trading on its past reputation as far as cost is concerned. Our bedroom was pleasant enough, with a good outlook, but the windows did not lock. The bathroom was very shabby, and the towels skimpy and worn. It took four phone calls over a period of eight hours to get an extra pillow. On our first day, we went out at 9.00am and on returning at 3.00pm, we found that the room had not been serviced (although on our last morning, when we were not in a rush to check out, the chambermaids were attempting to enter the room at 8.15 am although the official checkout is at noon). Parking is offered at a discounted rate, but you are charged if you use the car park on a Sunday with the hotel voucher, even though the car park is free on Sundays. The Nassau Inn is great if you want to be in the centre of Princeton but is overpriced as far as its facilities are concerned.
Great Location; Bad Hotel
My husband and I recently stayed at the Nassau Inn October 9 - 10th, 2004. I was extremely disappointed with the condition of our room. The bed was extra firm; no comfy pillow top here, the sheets yellow with age, a bathroom that had rust around the fixtures, and inadequate environmental controls. The amentities were minimal. The cost of the hotel equaled a luxery price, I felt like we had landed in a 1 or 2 star (2 is generous) hotel. I cannot see how anyone could rate this facility with high marks. The one thing the hotel does have going for it is a great location. So if your hard earned dollar is not precious to you, stay at the Nassau; if you want value for your money seek elsewhere to stay in Princeton.
The place to stay in Princeton
The Nassau Inn should be the first choice of anyone planning a trip to Princeton (generally families of the students, but also business travelers and tourists). Sure, it's expensive, but there's high demand in this small town for this superb location, right in Palmer Square close to charming shops and upscale stores. The staff is incredibly helpful and dedicated. The room service my husband and I ordered was delicious and arrived in a timely manner. Princeton's campus is just a three-minute walk away! This is a 3-4 star hotel that has 5 star service and a friendly atmosphere...highly recommended.
Where do I start? The hotel charges the price of a 4 star hotel, but barely delivers the quality of a 3 star. My room was shabby, the air conditioner would not shut off and kept us cold and awake all night, my room service was wrong, the staff was rude and did not offer me a new room even after I let them know about the issues in my suite! When I called the next day to tell a manager I was basically called a liar in not so many words! It was Unbelievable! This place needs a serious face lift and a reality check! They are not the Ritz, not a Wyndham or even close to a Hilton. The Nassau in is sure in a class of it's own - run down and washed up. Stay elsewhere! I suggest someplace on Route 1 south before entering Princeton. All of those hotels are newer and much cleaner than the Nassau Inn. I don't know where they got the pictures for the rooms are on the website, but the rooms in the hotel are dirty and old. The bed even made us itch, God knows why. Look elsewhere, this place is gross and overpriced!!
The only palce to stay in Princeton
This inn is top notch! It is situated on Palmer Square in the heart of downtown Princeton. Close to both Princeton University and upscale shopping. There are also many restaurants nearby. The Inn was relaxing and charming and service was great. I'd definitely stay here again. For anyone looking for a 4star property in the area, you should try it.
