This location is super when you are going to visit MIT; and a nice place in the buzz of cafe's and shops.. However a standard hotel for conferencing, which was organized efficient, including extra costs for using wifi other then at the main desk and large dining facilities without an atmosphere. When you feel like a small walk, then better... More

Le Meridien MIT is located very close to the MIT campus, which makes this great for any visits to MIT. It is also located within easy walking distance of the Central Square T station on Mass Avenue, making it very easy to get almost anywhere in the Boston area. The room was clean and comfortable, and the check in staff... More

Jose at the front desk was AWESOME by being very helpful. I had arrived around 11:00 pm on Friday and was exhausted from the drive. He guided me very easily through the check-in process.

Nice room w/ comfortable bed. Front desk staff very helpful, but one should pass on the restaurant----tried to do a sunday breakfast/brunch for 6 and although staff seemed to outnumber the guests, the service was ridiculously bad; disorganized; unresponsive; and because we were 6-they automatically tacked on an 18% tip which was clearly excessive given the poor service--food ok though.

Above and beyond - needed a document notarized urgently with a flight to catch in an hour and their Human resources manager who is a notary came right away and helped. From front desk to a very pleasant server who told me he was originally from India went out of their way to make it a terrific experience

The room had too much furniture including a massive wardrobe where you first walk in, making it feel much smaller than it really was. Another shortcoming was the available outlets - we were crawling on the floor and unplugging lamps in order to charge all of our devices (phones, tablets, laptops). Final complaint was the sink - it is the... More

Great overnight stay during a recent one night business trip to Cambridge/Harvard. Immediate recognition of my Starwood status and an upgrade to a wonderful two-room corner suite. Prompt and tasty (for room service ) in room dining. Also, appreciated helpfulness of parking valet when I needed some driving directions. Will definitely return on future visits to the area.

While I'd normally prefer to stay at a hotel in Harvard Square if I have to be in Cambridge, the Meridien Cambridge - MIT isn't a bad alternative. While it's not one of Starwood's best properties, and the surrounding neighborhood is a bit scruffy, one can easily walk to Central & Harvard Squares -- and there are some surprisingly good... More

Stayed here just a couple of nights on business. The hotel was perfectly fine - decent room and friendly staff. The restaurant is pretty good although service was very slow ( despite us being the only customers at the time). One block south of Central Square so very close to lots of good bars and restaurants.

This was my first stay here for a business meeting a short walk away. The location was very handy also to restaurants, and a reasonably quick ride from Logan airport. The front desk staff were responsive, friendly and helpful during my stay. But I was disappointed at the quality of the room, given the high price. Decor was very ho-hum,... More
