Homewood Suite in Arlington is a perfect place. Five minutes away with little traffic. Accommodations are inviting, suite set up with a warm and helpful staff and a fine breakfast. All at a reasonable rate.

Stayed here for three nights while I was attending training in Cambridge MA. Aside from a very dedicated guest's very loud workout video every morning at 515am, the hotel was great - clean comfortable spacious etc. The food at the hotel was standard buffet and not great but the Metonomy restaurant and CVS across the parking lot made up for...

Homewood suites is always my first choice wherever I travel either alone or with the family. This was my first time of using one in the Boston area and the experience was consistent with my previous stays - which is a good thing.

The location was very convenient for our trip to visit McLean Hospital in Belmont. Having breakfast right in the hotel made for an efficient start to the day. We had one day in Boston and the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful in telling us how to use the "T" - a first-class transportation system that offers buses, subways... More

The best part of the this suite hotel is that they provide a breakfast buffet and dinner buffet M-TH. However, some the of the young front desk staff are rude and unequipped to be front desk. I asked about laundry and it was like a TV telephone conversation where nobody says goodbye. Hospitatility is the key word and it's lacking... More

I can't complain about anything (save the solid midwestern grandma's house decor) but I also can't rave about anything either. It's just okay. Nice if you need/want a full size fridge, dishwasher, and cooking surface.

The comfort and convenience of the hotel and its amenities are as good as home; if you have to be on the road. The staff was pleasant and extremely helpful. I will be back in the area soon and will only stay at this property.

Comfortable enough for long stays, there's a CVS right in front of the hotel which makes life easier to buy whatever you forgot or need for simple lunch or dinner. Hotel has a fitness room, good enough for cardio workout. Breakfast is not the best, but ok if you're not very demanding.

The rooms and facility are excellent but the hotel has no atmosphere and serves mass manufactured breakfast. A good place to stay if you can find alternative breakfast facilities and are not to depressed by brown colours...

A sincere, professional, helpful staff coupled with a hi-value facility - at a very affordable cost ! Bellissima ! From check-in to suite amenities, the "bang for the buck" is not exceeded anywhere in the Boston area. Don't miss this gem......
