Best Western Plus Hotel Tria seemed a bit underwhelming when viewed from the outside. While it looked ok, it was nothing that said "good stay/nice place". The "neighborhood" was blah and commercial. With that said, the hotel itself was fine. It was clean and bright inside. The room was ok--not super plush or fancy, but clean (most important) and comfortable.... More

We stayed at the Tria hotel while our son in law was running in the marathon. It was an excellent hotel and was very convenient for the public transit system. The hotel staff was most helpful in advising us how to use the transit system. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

Wow! A last minute request for a handicapped room found me in one of the nicest ones I've ever stayed in. I had dinner in the bar-the only dinner-time food offered, and found my dinner delicious. I asked for many copies for a presentation, and they were provided. A great experience!

I checked into Best Western Aria in Boston for the very first time, and to my surprise, the hotel was extremely clean and modern. The staff were friendly and the place was maintained very neatly. The size of the room was rather small but we only stayed for the night so we didn't mind. Our package came with free breakfast... More

I have stayed here several times, both before & after the renovations. The hotel is clean, safe, very close to the Alewife T station, and next door to Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. Now having a Starbucks on-site is a huge plus. Breakfast is always really good. Exercise room has decrepit equipment, and now not having a pool is a... More

The Best Western Plus Tria in Cambridge is located about 2 miles from Harvard Square on a busy roundabout surrounded by small shopping centers. Not a particularly attractive hotel, the small room was fine, very clean, in decent enough shape. Our king size bed was comfortable; one of our party had to use a rollaway, however, though we booked a... More

Our experience staying at your hotel was a great one. We really appreciate your shuttle service as we were very nervous about driving around Boston and also nervous about parking options at Harvard. The shuttle service took us right to Harvard Square and to the subway station for our trip into downtown Boston.

Just had a night stay there while visiting schools with family. The breakfast was great, lots of varieties, serving staff were nice. Had a two-queen beds room, was roomy, had an extra sofa I guess could sleep 5th person. The heating unit very noisy, and microwave making static sounds. Had to turn both off. Corridor carpet is old and kind... More

Comfortable rooms, pleasant staff, acceptable breakfast. We stay there often to visit our children and grandchildren. Convenient to all of Cambridge -- and the Whole Foods next door is a plus. Haven't used their shuttle service.

Great Value. Clean, friendly, awesome breakfast. Modern, bright decor. Staff eager, happy and helpful. Free Shuttle to Harvard Square. If you are visiting Harvard University or anything in the area this is the place to stay.
