Hotels - for Princeton faculty, staff and students

Local Hotels

Princeton University has negotiated discounted room rates with several local hotels. As our preferred hotels, they offer value-added amenity packages to guests booked through Princeton University. Contracted rates and amenities can be found in our Concur travel booking tool or can be secured by booking through the University's travel agency, World Travel. These rates are for University business only. Click on the buttons below for additional information on any of the Princeton University Preferred Hotels.

Preferred Hotels
The travel program publishes a hotel matrix for University administrators, travel arrangers, and event planners. The matrix summarizes negotiated rates and hotel amenities at all of the University's preferred Princeton-area properties. It allows University affiliates to compare local hotel rates and see which amenities are available to guests -- such as shuttle service, restaurant on premises, and breakfast included.  Access information at Preferred Hotels Matrix.
