We like to stay in Starwood hotels like the Meridien. The hotel is centrally located in Cambridge with a nice breakfast buffett. The rooms are average in size and very clean. Good for an overnight stay with the family. The staff is also very helpful

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at 9 am and one of our rooms was already available. We ordered cappuccino at the restaurant and to our surprise it was offered as courtesy, I guess we looked tired... The rooms were modern, nice and spacious. The area around the hotel is much quieter than Boston downtown; Mass... More

This hotel has almost everything one could need for any kind of stay. The staff are very informative and are easy to talk to. It's not on the waterfront, but what it lacks in charm it makes up for in convenience. There are many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and taxis are available for further travel that park... More

We would never have found this hotel unless we were actually looking for the Le Meridien brand. It's a bit modern in decoration for my taste, but that being said, the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in, and the hotel is tucked away on a private "college-y" kind of street, so it was very quiet...

A very nice, clean hotel for a pretty reasonable price. A quick 5 minute walk to the nearest subway, and withing walking distance of the fun nightlife of Harvard Square. I was in Boston for the Red Sox, and the hotel is exactly a 30 minute walk to Fenway Park, which was perfect. Nice location right off the Main Street,... More

I know Boston in August commands high prices so I chose to stay out in Cambridge when (I thought) it might be cheaper during the University summer break. The hotel seemed pretty empty to me, few people in the lobby or anywhere for that matter. I was on the 4th floor overlooking a nice garden. It had most of what... More

We spent two nights here and we're impressed with the helpfulness of all the staff. We chose the green option, meaning no housekeeping, since we weren't there for long. The hotel is near the T and plenty of places to eat. We found it fairly easy and safe to travel throughout the city on foot and on the T. The... More

I went on a short business trip and stayed there for 2 nights. I wish I could stay longer - the place is amazing. The rooms are spacious and very well furnished. Beds are comfortable (well, I tried one of two beds but I supposed the second one is the same ;) ). Bathrooms are well equipped, spacious and comfortable.... More

Spent one night in August here. The rooms are good. Quite location and is very close to MIT and airport. Room size is good too. I would have given 4 stars, but I felt something is missing in the hotel atmosphere. The staff was more or less business like. All mechanical greetings and here you go attitude. The doorman seem...

Le Meridien is a good hotel, well located in Cambridge. Good sized rooms, clean and well appointed. Plenty of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. Easy transport links to downtown Boston. It is possible to walk for the more energetic.
