Rejuvenation!

In recent months, the Nassau Inn has embarked on a “rejuvenation.” This included a new outdoor patio and upgrades to several blocks of rooms.  While this project is currently underway and will continue throughout April 2011, we wanted to share with you a few of the changes and updates that can be expected!

Our guestrooms will be enhanced with new furniture, flat screen TVs, plush bed linens and remodeled bathrooms.  Additionally, all of our guest elevators are receiving new mechanicals and cab interiors.  

In 2012, the guest rooms  in the Colonial Wing of the Inn will be complete, as will the replacement of the public space carpeting on levels 1 and 2. The Ballroom, Senior Room and Assembly room will be fully renovated with new window treatments, wall coverings, audio and visual upgrades and much more!

We are very excited about the rejuvenation project here at the Nassau Inn and are pleased to share with you updates and progress. As we renovate rooms and meeting space throughout the hotel, I can assure you that the 18th century elegance and charm of the Nassau Inn will not be lost.

As always, we welcome your feedback and hope you will stop in and take a look at the renovation in progress!

Welcome Back Princeton University Students

This post was co-written with Lucia Scotto.

Autumn is the season that the Nassau Inn staff looks forward to the most.  The trees along Palmer Square and Nassau Street begin to burst with vibrant colors and the streets awaken, filled with the hustle and bustle of Princeton University students, parents, and professors.  The Nassau Inn has the great fortune of bearing witness as a host for all, from near or far.

Nothing can replicate the energy that derives from this annual migration into Princeton.  Every spring we say goodbye to one and in the fall hello to another, always keeping the town’s spirit renewed and the memories of yesterday’s guests close.

The Yankee Doodle Tap Room becomes the hub of sociability, bringing together students, locals, and hotel guests providing the perfect venue for the forging of lifetime friendships and bonds.

The lobby of our Inn is always buzzing as it serves as the gateway to everything Princeton and the Nassau Inn has to offer. Whether it’s a bride and groom organizing their last minute wedding details, guests checking in, or friends planning their next excursion, we will certainly greet you with a warm smile as you re-energize this town (and our staff). We are thrilled and honored you have chosen to be a part of the rich history of the Nassau Inn.

So whether you’re here to say hello, goodbye, or meet up with friends, the Historic Nassau Inn would like to say, “Welcome back and see you again soon.”

Renovated Room

Yesterday we entered into phase two of our guest room rejuvenation. Guests can look forward to new furnishings, bedding, 42″ flat screen TV’s and a completely renovated guest bathroom.

This phase should be complete by September 1, 2010. Phase three will begin mid-December and at its conclusion at the end of March, 2011 we will have completed half of the inventory of guest rooms in the Inn.
