Centrally located to Mass Ave and the T. Front desk staff was nice and check in/out was quick and painless. Self-parking or Valet is available next door and an actual large supermaket is attached through the lobby- all a plus. Beds were comfy but the a/c was super loud and the room itself was just not as clean as I... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on business in a one-bedroom suite. THE GOOD + LOCATION: The hotel is located very close to Central Square and MIT. If you need to be close to Mass Ave or the T, this location is good. THE OK +/- SERVICE: Workers were pleasant....not overly helpful but not rude. The one area where... More

We stayed here in July 2015 in a two-queen room on the 6th floor. The fire alarm went off at 4:30AM and it turned out to be a false alarm. When talking with other people the next morning, I found out that this has been happening a lot recently and it might be related to the ongoing renovations. So we... More

Dear webbzell, Thank you for your review. I apologize that there was a fire alarm during your stay, I understand how frustrating and disruptive it must have been. We take guest safety very seriously which is why the hotel was evacuated. It was a pleasure to welcome you as our guest and hope that you will stay with us again... More

Staff very friendly and helpful, accommodated my early check in and late check out. Room on 8th floor are a good size but the aircon is extremely loud!! Lots of building work going on, in and around the hotel but did not affect my stay at all. Jet lagged so went to sleep in the afternoon, building noise not an... More

Very fortunate to stay in an amazing hotel on the 4th of July weekend. Bed was comfortable and fitness center was nice. Even though it was a little far from the T it is very convenient to get around the city easy.

I'll be honest. I rarely ever post reviews save exceptionally great stays or exceptionally bad ones, but I was really, really surprised by the negative reviews of this hotel and thought I'd post a riposte. I had booked this hotel because the hotel at which I was staying later that week couldn't accommodate for me an earlier night, it was... More

Stayed here over Fourth of July weekend with my family. The room was clean, comfy beds. Small bathrooms tho. Everyone at the front desk was helpful and friendly! Our room had a great view overlooking the garden! This hotel is very close to the MIT and many restaurants! We had gotten room service one morning for breakfast and it all... More

I am a member SPG and used my points to stay one night while visiting Boston for a college visit with my daughter. IMO the décor in the room was just blah, and the bathroom seemed dated. I also wasn't able to use the bathrobe provided, as it was really thin shabby looking. We ordered room service (dessert only) and... More

I think the last time I stayed here was around two years back, and it looked like they were having problems keeping up on their maintenance to-do list; all kinds of little things were broken. That doesn't seem like it's a problem anymore; they're all caught up. And the bed was comfortable, the decor was pleasant (but neutral -- neutrally... More

The staff at the front desk were very courteous every time I spoke with them. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean and quiet. The location was a few blocks from the Central stop on the Red Line. They didn't have umbrellas in the room and there was a small bit of construction in the lobby. Otherwise my 2... More
