PRINCETON, NJ- – Getting away this fall has never been easier, thanks to the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal. Whether travelers are looking for a romantic escape or a family-friendly adventure, sophisticated amenities or bucolic retreats, this Princeton resort has it all.
Situated on 25 acres of lush woodland, the hotel is only a train ride or short drive away from New York City, but it feels worlds apart. Unique among hotels in Princeton, NJ, this resort boasts a forested setting that yields countless ways to connect with nature. Guests can borrow complimentary bikes and ride through the autumnal foliage, for example, or forego the wheels and set out on the walking trail. An indoor pool and tennis courts let guests stay active during inclement weather, while the half-court basketball and sand volleyball courts offer the perfect ways to luxuriate in brisk fall temperatures.
Guests looking to make the most of a fall getaway will also appreciate the hotel’s shuttle service to downtown Princeton. Here, guests can stroll among quaint shops and historic buildings, visit Princeton University and explore Palmer Square’s exciting blend of boutiques, restaurants and bars.
In addition to Princeton’s appealing array of attractions is the city’s rotating lineup of seasonal events. Families, for example, can wander through the pumpkin patch and while away an afternoon at the Oasis Family Farm’s special Fun Zone, featuring slides, zip lines and more. Or guests may choose a more contemplative outing and catch an exhibit like “Landscape: Social, Political, Traditional” at Rider Art Gallery.
Other events, like Wednesday Tea & Tour at Marven Museum & Garden or the Harvest Festival at Crossing Vineyards & Winery, combine enlightening tours with tempting refreshments, whether it’s scones or sauvignon blanc. And guests will find plenty more to explore at Grounds for Sculpture’s seasonal exhibits, the 200-acre Tehrani Orchards and Forrestal Village.
One destination guests should definitely not miss, however, is The Spa at Forrestal. That’s because, in addition to its full menu of treatments, this top-rated spa is offering a selection of Fall Harvest Services that celebrate the season and distinguish the property from other New Jersey resorts. Guests can indulge in pumpkin facials, pedicures and body treatments that feature Farmhouse Fresh Goods like “Splendid Dirt”, a nutrient mud mask with organic pumpkin puree, and Butter Rum Brown Sugar body scrub.
At the end of the day, visitors can reflect upon their adventures over dinner at Barley’s Pub or Fireside Grill before retiring to their recently renovated guest rooms. There, on the stylish room’s plush bedding, guests can indulge in dreams that are as sweet as their vacation experiences.
