Third stay in this hotel which has become our locale when visiting family in Boston. This time we brought along our dog (she is very quiet, was never left alone in the room, and never, ever barked!). We were there over Thanksgiving weekend. Enjoy being on bus line, walking distance to Back Bay/Newbury Street/PruCenter. Run down Mass Ave to the... More

Generally, we liked the hotel. Clean and we got a good price. However, it's a pet-friendly hotel... which apparently means it's OK to have a big dog barking in your room when you get back at 2:30AM as our neighbors did. I can't fault the hotel for the poor manners of its guests, but people should be aware of the... More

I am always fascinated by the unique starwoods approach. I tend to find them appropriate, efficient and somewhat surgical in their function. 3.77 stars rounded up. Maria carter is an excellent representative for the Meridien. Warm and caring front desk individual. Got what I paid for. Always like the food I should mention.

Got the room at 20% discount! Very nice room with sofa and glass end table. Even without the discount, it still is a very good alternative to Boston hotels. Less than 10 minutes to downtown Boston. Use the valet parking for a small fee instead of parking it yourself. Will definitely stay here again.

The rooms are clean and updated. The rooms are a fair size; however, slightly on the smaller side. The front desk staff was not very knowledgable in giving directions and caused us a $40 taxi ride to the completely wrong neighborhood. Overall, a good hotel.

Book this hotel for a week-end getaway and I was not dissapointed. It was well located, close to restaurants bars, and pubs. Also it is close to public transportation( central station) if you want to go and visit downtown Boston. If you want to visit Harvard or MIT you are also close enough to walk it. The hotel staff was... More

The hotel has a good location (only a couple minute walk to Cental station), which gives you access to all of Boston. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the hotel has everything you would expect from a Starwood property. The staff are very friendly and helpful. On our checkout day, we wanted to tour the area, and the weather... More

Le Meridien is located in a nice area with close proximity to MIT- it's an easy walk to campus. The hotel is near lots of restaurants and shops. Our room was clean and nice- although I am not sure if it was worth the $400 price tag. The bathroom was small and in need of updating. Staff was friendly. I... More

I recently went to Le Meridien for breakfast with some of my friends and I just say that the food was great! I believe it was prepared by Ahmed and I just wanted to recognize his wonderful cooking abilities.

We hadn't been to this hotel since it became a Le Meridien; we were there for one night to attend a family gatheirng just a few blocks away. Only traces of the former techno decor remain. Gone are the futuristic elevator interiors and circuit-board room furniture; in is more generic but certianly pleasing upscale decor. The rooms are comfortable, and... More
