lovely place to stay outside of Boston. Full breakfast is included. The rooms have a living room with sleep couch which is convenient for families. Excellent place to stay in suburbs of Boston. We will stay there again.full gym, pool, and comfortable rooms.

We stayed two nights at the Embassy Suites in Waltham. Our room was very large, with a living room with a couch, chair, desk and tv, a pantry area outside of the bathroom with a microwave, refrigerator, coffee and tea set up, and a bedroom with two double beds and a nice large window. The included breakfast was large and... More

I booked a last minute stay on Hotwire for a short weekend trip to Boston. It was much better than I expected! The hotel is modern on the inside, free easy parking on the outside, there was a nice fitness center and a spacious swimming pool with a nice hot tub. The room we got was right outside the elevators... More

Great complimentary breakfast buffet, nice pool areas, very modern looked lobby, enough room for the whole family. A bit of noisy on the new years Eve. Overall, it is a great hotel for family with kids, great value!

I thought the hotel was outdated and very noisy and the food was mediocre. I would not use this hotel again and I will let my company know as well. I had other choices but wanted to try this one out. I also ordered food to be in my room on arrival and it was not.

Doug, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience through both TripAdvisor and our internal guest survey. I am sorry you encountered noise within our hotel during the busy holiday season. This is certainly not the norm for our hotel. Additionally, I regret that we missed your advanced food order and wish we had the opportunity to Make... More

I was very impressed with this hotel. The rooms were small but very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and the feel of the hotel was very upscale. The pool and Jacuzzi was a great bonus. The breakfast was great. Plenty of food and variety.

I'm a longtime Embassy Suites fan, and the staff here made the experience even better. The breakfast was mobbed with guests descending at once, but the staff hustled impressively to keep pace with the crowd. They never lost their cool and they were able to share smiles with guests even at crazy busy time.

We have stayed at the Embassy suits in Waltham several times. Clean rooms with fresh linens and a breakfast unlike any other continental. We went with friends this time and both booked on trip advisor. She paid $93 and I paid $120 because I upgraded to a bigger room since we have three kids... When we arrived both rooms were... More

We stayed from December 24 - December 28. We needed a place close to Cambridge, Newton and Reading. Price was exceptional. Trip started out great! The staff on Christmas was wonderful, the suite the right size. Room was very nice. By Saturday all that had changed. The Christmas staff was so gracious but when the regulars came back it was...

If you are used to staying at Embassy Suites and enjoy a glass of wine or beer to relax in the evening steer clear of Massachusetts. They do not provide "free" alcohol at hotels in this state as it is against state laws. We were not warned before ordering and ended up paying full bar prices for the drinks we... More

Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience through both TripAdvisor and our internal guest survey. I am sorry you were not pleased with our Complimentary Evening Reception. Unfortunately, Massachusetts state law prohibits the practice of offering complimentary alcoholic beverages. I certainly do hope this does not deter you from joining us again when your travels bring you... More
