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

Every time I've stayed at a Le Meridien has consistently been a good experience. I'd never hesitate to stay at this chain, anywhere. This was no exception. The room was nice, bathroom clean, bed very comfortable. Room service (breakfast) arrived spot on time, though wow was it expensive. $20++ for a glass of milk, piece of toast and a few... More

A nice, spotlessly clean hotel with the most comfortable pillow top beds I've slept on. The location is dead center between M.I.T. and Harvard, an area with exceptional Boston feel. Still, it's way short on amenities, obviously due to being driven by the bottom line. Did I mention the small tin of $14 cashews? No pool, room refrigerator being stocked... More

Spent 5 nights at Le Meridien after a long trip across the USA. This is a very comfortable hotel, located right in the heart of Cambridge, and very close to the underground train line (the T). There are lots of places to eat and have coffee nearby. It's only a short walk to Central, a subway station, and then only... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel following a conference that I attended at Harvard. We found that the location was convenient, the lobby was beautiful, and our room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately our room contained a "toddler trap" which is essentially an immovable tray of treats that bills the room each time an item is removed. This... More

We stayed for 2 nights recently and enjoyed our visit. We booked via a 3rd party site and were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Check in by Tyler was very professional and friendly. This set the tone for our stay as we felt very well attended too. Our room was very well appointed and clean, the beds and linens met expectations... More

We had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights via Priceline. For some reason, room rates were very high in Boston, and we had to choose whether to stay outside Boston and drive in or stay close by in Cambridge. We found Cambridge to be a better option as it reduced the hassle of driving in a unfamiliar city. The hotel... More

I was in Cambridge for Graduation in late May. The room was large, and the view was pleasant - overlooking a garden. It was convenient to get the Graduation and the activities associated with it. At check-out, I was charged for an item from their snack stock in the room. I had not used a thing and was told that... More

I stayed here during a recent business trip. I've stayed at the Kendall Square Mariott on the past and wanted to try something different. I heard that this hotel was recently renovated. My room was so-so. There was a weird and uncomfortable daybed that was again the window, replacing, I guess an armchair or loveseat. The hotel is very noisy.... More

This is a very nice hotel; very clean and close to everything. However, there were little things that didn't make this the best place to stay. First, we called for valet to bring the car around and the front desk forgot to relay the message. Then we had bought an ice cream cake and asked them to store it in... More
