Brief summary: good hotel, but it deserves no more than three stars, especially comparing to hotels in Northern Europe. Details: I have been travelling quite a lot around the world, and my friend once told me that this hotel is really nice and probably best in Cambridge. Usually I stay in Marriott when I travel to the U.S., but Marriott... More

Spent the weekend here as a base for visiting colleges in the area. Lovely modern decor with very clean and spacious rooms. There is a grocery store adjacent to the hotel which came in handy for buying snacks and drinks for the kids. Plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from as well. Parking is very expensive but we... More

Just had a quick overnight visiting schools in the area, location was central in Cambridge/Boston area. Hotel was modern design, but felt lacking in character. If you are looking for a modern, new place to stay with no frills, this will be a good fit. The lobby bar was full at 10 PM with a lot of traveling professionals. I... More

RM 612. Design, bed, pillows, layout. Excellent! Quite. Spacious bathroom. We had stayed there at least once before, years ago, we were happy to return. But, (1) as soon as we walked in we noticed stains on the couch. Manager K. said, "They're iron marks." Sure enough, that was the shape. It looked like heck and made a terrible first... More

This is such a nice hotel just blocks from MIT. This hotel is very family friendly (they gave me son (6 years old) a lego bag upon check in). They gave us a great corner room on a high floor since we told them it was our first time in Boston. The stay included a breakfast ticket for the hotel... More

Love the location. Bar keep is nice enough. Had some great beers on tap. But actual rooms and lobby and restaurants are below the Le Meridiens I have stayed before. As mentioned - location is great for night life, as late as it is in Cambridge, and close to Boston. Hotel is "sufficient"

We stayed for only one night arrival 1/23/16 and departed on 01/24/16 so that we could go to a Boston Bruins game that night. Our children bought us a ticket each and paid for our night at this hotel. From the time we got out of our car, we were greeted by the friendliest doorman we've ever met, he helped... More

The room was very nice. The decor was pretty, the beds were comfortable, the TV was great! No mini-fridge. Shower worked well, warm water, decent pressure. The hair dryer is fantastic. Plenty of counter space. Nice big windows. Everything was clean. The location is good. Down the block from the MIT museum, which I recommend. About a 12 - 15... More

Friendly staff, comfy room, great location ... what's not to love? I appreciate that they allow pets. They don't charge extra for that but there is a $150 fully refundable deposit, which is fair. Take care of your dog and you will get it all back.

Friendly staff. Clean and nice room...number 745 - high floor with an open view. Coffee machine in room, but a second non- decaf would have been nice. Comfortable stay. I was very close to a large family reunion so was only at the hotel minimally. I can certainly recommend it. Request a room onto Sydney St. if you want a... More
