I really love this hotel! It is a bit expensive for me, but the rooms are spacious and clean, customer service is great and the breakfast is awesome! The glass elevators are gorgeous and fun and the pool and hot tub are clean and roomy! My only real complaint is that wifi is not included and is expensive to add.... More

The Embassy Suites in Waltham is a relatively nice place. It is quiet and peaceful and has been recently remodeled. This is big deal in the Boston area where nice, reasonable, modern hotels are, sadly, a rarity. I really didn't have any significant complaints. The rooms were fine, the AC was nice and cold. The beds were comfortable enough. My... More

We stayed here for two nights while in the Boston area. There is no charge for parking which can be very expensive. It cost us $29 to park when we went for the tour of Harvard. We would drive to the Alewife station and then take the subway downtown. The room was the standard Embassy Suite room. We did get... More

No free Wi Fi~~$13 a day for Wi Fi in the room. In this day and age of technology, we found this to be inexcusable. And we're Hilton Honors members, but you must be gold or diamond members to get free Wi Fi. The air conditioner didn't work when we arrived, but it was fixed by the time we got... More

We stayed at the Embassy Suites Waltham for an overnight. We got a great deal through United reservations $110/night plus tax for a deluxe double suite: two rooms, two double beds and a pull out sofa, mini kitchen, desk, etc.. Great for my family of five. The kids loved the pool which was a wonderful warm temperature along with a... More

It is crazy that there is a charge for wifi access in a hotel that costs as much as this. Very nice location, clean and well maintained. Easy self-parking in lighted lots. Food and drinks available on site. Just can't get over having to pay for internet access after paying top $ for a hotel suite.

The hotel is standard Embassy Suites but finding it can be difficult, even with Google Maps, especially coming off 95/Rt 128, in which case you have to go over the overpass over the highway to get to it or even view it.

Some friends of mine came in from out of town. Through a business association that I am a member of, I had previously met Chad, the Director of Events and Catering Services, and he gave our group a tour of the hotel. Because of that previous tour, I recommended to my friends that they stay here. They did, and had... More

Hotels in downtown Boston is expensive and rooms are petite. To pay less than US$150 for a suite, free breakfast and parking is a steal, only downside you are 20km from downtown Boston. Beds are soso. Also wifi in the room is not free, and cost US$10+ for each device. But you can get free wifi in the lobby, and... More
