  • "We loved every minute of our stay!"

    We live in Canada and received a letter requesting our comments on the event. Instead of sending a letter back, I wanted to include a quick comment:

    We loved every minute of our stay. For the Friday dinner we hosted, and even if the dinner was catered by a Kosher caterer, the hotel and the room enhanced the whole event. Guests were also impressed with the beauty of the room and the set up of the buffet, tables, etc.

    Throughout the entire process of dealing with your hotel for both the dinner and the room block reservation, Jaime was wonderful. When coordinating an event from far, we might think that something could go wrong. However, Jaime quickly showed that distance was not a problem when dealing with her and she made sure the event would be as memorable as it was. We always received prompt responses to our comments and questions and found her extremely helpful in the process.

     Please make sure you share our comments with Jaime and let her know we were extremely happy during our stay in Princeton and at the Nassau Inn, more so after remembering the wonderful time all our families had during the celebrations.

    Your front desk people were also very nice to all guest and wanted to thank them too.

    Hope we can one day go back and enjoy Princeton again from the Nassau Inn!

Not one negative comment about the show or the meal!  This is a first for me in 15 years of planning motorcoach  trips!   Thanks, McCarter and Nassau Inn, for making my work easy and rewarding! With over 15 years experience planning group travel, I value highly efficient service, ease of booking, and accommodation of special requests.  The McCarter and the Nassau Inn epitomize the best in theatre and dining.  Combined they make my job easier:  consistently superior productions and  beautifully presented meals served with unobtrusive efficiency in a warm and inviting inn – certainly not an easy task when feeding a large group.  Princeton is now a favorite destination of my groups because of the cooperation of these landmark establishments;  Megan and Jamie are my new heroes!!"

  • "food was amazing"

    "This past Saturday, March 7th, my daughter's baby shower took place at the Nassau Inn. Everything went smoothly. The food was amazing, the room was set up to perfection and looked gorgeous, and not one glitch occurred. The wait staff was attentive and polite. My guests were in awe! My daughter, her mother-in-law, and I were able to enjoy the day because all the details had been seen to. I owe all of this to Melissa Dill. I met her back in November when I was searching for the perfect venue. We had been in touch by phone and had made an appointment, but when I found myself in Princeton before our scheduled meeting, she graciously rearranged her day to fit me in. She showed me the Palmer Room and I was sold! Over the next four months, Melissa and I were frequently in touch by email and sometimes by phone. She was always friendly, gracious, and extremely prompt with email replies.She explained things to me patiently and "talked me down from the ledge" a few times. She did everything she could to ensure that this party would be everything we had hoped for. The day of the party Melissa popped in frequently to be sure things were running smoothly. I know that you have many, bigger parties at the Nassau Inn, but Melissa made me feel as if mine was the only one she had on her calendar. She is an asset to your hotel. I am so happy to have met her and worked with her"

  • "The Christopher Reeve Suite was fantastic."

    "First off, I wanted to thank you so much for your patience and attentiveness to my family and I during this special time. As you know, when we lost my mother, it was certainly a rough time for us and we definitely still have our good and bad days, but to have a party that came together this wonderfully, truly allowed us all to reflect and celebrate a momentous occasion with love and thankfulness. Your organization and attentiveness to our every need and willingness to go the extra mile was most appreciative.The Christopher Reeve suite was fantastic! We got ready in the room with make-up, hair, and had a little pre-party with our guests. It was lovely! For me, having this space for my family, truly made the event!The Lobby 2 and Nassau room looked great with the decorations, pianist and the food was fantastic! We received so many compliments on how attentive the staff was and how smoothly everything flowed. Natascha was especially wonderful not only overlooking the whole party, but bringing me champagne when I was empty every time! All of our guests could not believe how attentive she was to our party. It made us feel very special.The breakfast was set up so nicely the following Sunday and the food was great. What a nice addition to a long night of partying! The staff in the morning were all smiling and and had remembered us from the night before, which was nice. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this event turned out. I feel very blessed that it worked out so well and that you were so supportive of my wanting to do this for my sister.Thank you, thank you, thank you Jaime!"

  • "best work party ever"

    Dear Mariela, I wanted to take a moment to write to you about one of your team members, Jaime Wolf.  As you may know we had our GS1 Holiday party Wednesday night (we had it last year as well). This year I met with Jaime and she gave myself and two colleagues an amazing tasting and upsold the Surf and Turf and Artisan Cheese Station.  She took particular care to work with us to make sure we were pleased with the food choices this year and IT WORKED!  Additionally, she was an amazing support with all our party changes and room block changes (and there were many).  She even stayed late and took the time to write all the meal choices on the back of our table cards because we forgot to do so before we got there. On Thursday, our big VIP boss, Miguel (CEO from Brussels) pulled my US boss, Steve (President) aside and told him it was the best party GS1 has EVER had....My other boss Marianne (also a company President) told me it was the best work party she has ever been too.  Feedback from our group, both the Europeans and the Princeton folks, was incredible... and it is often difficult to get both sides of the pond to agree on food since there cooking temps and local foods differ, as I am sure you already know. The food was great, the room was decorated beautifully, the wait staff was attentive and the casino tables were an amazing hit, everyone was yelling and having a blast at the craps table! You have a great team.  Thanks again to Nassau Inn for stepping it up this year – it showed! P.S. The waiter that did the tasting (as well as the party) was also fantastic but I can’t recall his name – he was an Asian older man with glasses.  Special mention should also go to Stephanie Nichols who did really cute graphics for our table signs for us at the last minute.

Most of all they care. Good Job- cannot wait to come back. Yes the location is great but it's the staff that really knows the hotel that makes the Nassau Inn.

     I want to commend you and your team on an amazing job. So many compliments on the set up, food, servers, etc. I was very impressed how the servers were constantly filling water glasses and asking guests if they would like more wine. Kudos to the chefs. My chicken was so moist, the halibut was excellent, everyone I spoke to that ordered the steak said it was delicious and our 2 vegetarians loved the strudel. You helped make everything for me stress free including helping my friend with her lip. Our guests just raved about everything and hats off to you Ms. Dill
