Advantages: I believe this hotel was newly renovated. The bed was new and comfortable. The heat was quiet, as was the room overall. There is a fridge and microwave. The towels were soft. Husband reported that the fitness room was cold (as I like it). Starbucks is in the building and also plentiful 24 hour coffee in the lobby. Breakfast... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I to spend our last night together before he had to fly back to Canada the next morning as I am currently working in the States. It started out terrible with the front desk service. We checked in, in the evening and it was a rude Russian woman at the front desk.... More

This was our first time staying in Cambridge, and we picked a very nice place to stay. The room was quiet, and clean, wide screen HDTV with actual HD TV service (!). Suzanne, at the front desk, was very nice, friendly, and helpfully arranged a cab for a trip we took to a show, rather than chance trying to park... More

the Tria is fine in most respects but it is pricey. that's not their fault, it's just a function of being in Cambridge. rooms are OK, lobby area is well done and the breakfast looked good, though we didn't have it. staff is excellent. if you go in winter, as for an extra blanket or two since the beds are...

Excellent service. Was there for a tournament at Harvard, and their ability to accommodate our needs was phenomenal. The hotel staff was fun and friendly. The hotel was in excellent condition and was an overall exceptional experience. We will definitely return.

This is my second time staying at Hotel Tria in the past year and a half. Both experiences were excellent. The rooms are clean. The staff is friendly. The beds are comfortable. I apreciate the eco friendly practice where if was want to re-use our towels instead of having them laundered daily we can. I loved the hot waffles at... More

We stayed here primarily because of its location and proximity to the Mt. Auburn Hospital--it is also very close to Harvard University. They have free shuttles running every hour and all of the drivers are top rate! The customer service was excellent except for the one person who only checked me in for one night whereas my online booking was... More

it was a family trip to celebrate my daughter's Master degree graduation and the location of the hotel was very convenient and very good services. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing I would of like was shuttle service to the airport, everything else was great.

Nice Hotel in the heart of Cambridge. Near shopping, train and Harvard Square. They provide a shuttle service for shopping and local attractions. Train into downtown Boston is in walking distance. Friendly staff. Whole Foods and trader Joes in walking distance to but groceries, if staying long term.
