This hotel is right up there, just a step down from the luxurious Liberty Hotel. The lobby area is very warm and inviting and a few touches could put it at that luxury level. The rooms are nice and comfortable, replacing the unused mini-bars and updating the baths/showers (the rest of the bathroom is top notch) would be steps to... More

Reasonable price and good location in an expensive city. Room was clean and quiet. Desk staff very nice and efficient. Near MTA station, making it convenient to get around the city, but walkable to nearby restaurants and MIT Museum

I stayed here with my husband who was in Boston for business. I had a great stay at the hotel. The room was neat and clean and spacious enough for two people, with all basic amenities and furniture in place. I found the staff courteous and friendly. I got locked out of my room and housekeeping told me she wouldn't... More

Le Meridien is a well located hotel, a few blocks from Central Square and nice restaurants. For an extra cost, it has a garage where you can park your car. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bed is very comfortable and rooms are quiet. You are paying for a great location as the hotel has nothing else exceptional.

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.

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.

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
