Travel for business, 3 days, 2 nights. A meeting in the meeting-rooms of the hotel. Bad experience with credit cards, take care of the limits because they charge all the amount or more (more than 1000 dollars for 2 nights) in advance in your credit card and if you have a limit (800€-1000€) they do not accept the card and...

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our first anniversary. Such a neat lobby- don't forget to check out the roof garden too! The front desk held our cake for us until we were ready and supplied plates and cutlery (something most hotels don't like doing). All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The hotel rewards for... More

We stayed here for six nights in July, partly on business and partly on pleasure. The hotel is well maintained, clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a room with a king bed, but felt a bit cramped. Rooms are very up to date, clean and have nice decor. Maid service is very good. Beds are... More

I booked twin Queen beds, and of course pre-paid through Hotels.com, but they gave away my room and did not apologize. I called Hotels.com customer service who got me a $50 voucher plus free breakfast for 2 nights. Still, not happy because when I called to change rooms, the front desk still did not apologize for inconveniencing us. They seemed... More

Very comfortable hotel and a good value through Priceline. Strangely, however, the lamps shades in the room were in shreds. The cloth trim at the bottom of the shades was literally separating from the shades and the shades! Very out-of-character for this classy place. Also the clock was set an hour late, something we did not notice until we got... More

Rooms were spacious and clean. Close to restaurants and fast food. Hotel restaurant was pricey. No pool for the kids. Staff were helpful in providing directions to local tourist attractions. Great price.

The hotel is easy to find but is not near anything of interest (on MIT campus, if that is your reason for visit). It is 2 blocks from the Central Station on the Red Line so that made it good. The walk to Harvard is about 15-20 mins and walking across the bridge into Boston is about 10-15 mins. Parking... More

This is the hotel to stay in Cambridge. Conveniently located when visiting Universities, and discreetly connected to a supermarket where you can buy Charlie cards for the T, downstairs is the Sidney's Grille where they make the best chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and where service is prompt (thank you Martin) , and best of all the people at the...

I have stayed here 3 times. Relatively good value for Boston. Attractive decor and attentive service. Bar & restaurant is rather ordinary, but there are ecletic places in the area. Seems out of the way, not on a main street, but the MBTA is 4 blocks away at Central Square. Roof top garden is a nice touch.

The only reason you want to stay to this hotel would be to visit MIT for some reason or to be a business traveller working for companies that have their HQ near. The services are average, the breakfast the same, the rooms however are really nice and big. The same applies to the bathroom. Very clean hotel but nothing special.... More
